Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile, but because it is baked at a higher temperature it is denser and resistant to heat and moisture. Porcelain tile is more water resistant than ceramic, and absorbs less than 0.5% of moisture. So, you can install it in places like your laundry room and even outside as a patio without worrying about moisture being absorbed and causing cracks.Shop Porcelain
Natural stone is unique and comes in a variety of colors. Stone slabs are collected from quarries, and since no two slabs are quarried from the exact same location, the variations in the tiles give you a one-of-a-kind look.
