San Jose, Ca (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Conklin Bros, a company that offers a huge selection of top-quality carpet and flooring, has just posted a new and interesting blog to its website that explains the many benefits of porcelain tile. As the new article explains, porcelain tile has definitely evolved over the years and is now able to mimic the appearance of other materials, including hardwood flooring.
As the owners of Conklin Bros. understand, wood floors look fantastic, but they may not be the ideal flooring for parents, pet owners, and high traffic areas in the home. This is where porcelain tile that looks like wood can help; thanks to its durable finish, flexible application and lovely appearance, it can help homeowners enjoy the warm and inviting look of wood along with the tough durability of tile.
The reason that porcelain tile is as strong as it is beautiful goes back to its early days in the factory. As the new blog explains, porcelain tile is typically created by pressing together dust from porcelain clay; in many ways, it’s similar to the process for making particle board. But unlike particle board, porcelain tiles are super hard and heavy as well as flat and fine-grained. In addition, the heavy-duty pressures that are used to create porcelain tile result in a super-low water absorption rate of around 0.5 percent. This is one reason this type of tile is ideal for homes with kids who are prone to spilling their juice and four-legged friends who might have an accident on the floor.
In addition to their durability, the new blog noted, there are numerous other benefits to porcelain tiles.
“Unlike carpet and many other kinds of formed tiles which tend to be ‘one-size-fits-all,’ porcelain tile offers a range of customization and looks that conventional floor coverings simply cannot match,” the article noted, adding that porcelain tile is also naturally stain resistant.
“Because of the ultra-low absorptive properties of porcelain tile, whether your kids spill Kool-Aid or your guest fumbles a glass of Merlot; your floor will not stain. This also reduces worries about water damage and needing to clean up spills or leaks immediately.”
