All About Ceramic Tile
The flooring experts at Unique Flooring in San Diego cannot say enough good things about ceramic tile, as it’s as beautiful as it is durable. If taken care of properly, it can last and retain that beauty for many years. Let’s look at the different aspects of ceramic tile.
There are many pros to installing ceramic tile in your home. It is easy to clean and doesn’t hold germs, so allergens are greatly reduced. It is hard to crack, water-resistant, and resistant to high humidity. You can also DIY tile flooring, but as with most DIY flooring projects, if you make a mistake it can cause costly problems down the road.
There are a few cons involved with ceramic tile. The tile can vary in size and color from lot to lot making it harder to match a piece if you need to replace one. Ceramic tile is hard and cold to step on, and it is heavy, making it less than ideal for flooring upstairs. The grout in the tile can also get dirty and moldy if not cleaned regularly.
Costs of ceramic tile vary according to many factors. It depends on the type of tile, the contractor’s pricing and whether you are installing over an existing floor. If you are, it also depends on the type of floor you are installing on. Costs range anywhere from $700 to $4000.
These versatile and low-maintenance tiles are easy to clean with any non-abrasive household cleaner and rag making them ideal for flooring, countertops, and back splashes in bathrooms and kitchens. Food, water and drinks spilled and splashed often can easily be wiped away. Ceramic is also very durable, making it a great choice for large families and areas with heavy foot traffic.
