Strong and Healthy Choices
The timeless, enduring aesthetic of porcelain is undoubtedly appealing, however there are a variety of practical reasons to install tile in your home. Comparatively, porcelain is unchallenged in its durability. Vinyl, or LVT, easily scratches and scuffs. Hardwood is attractive, but stains and dents easily, requiring frequent maintenance. In addition, both LVT and hardwood fade and degrade over the years, whereas porcelain is resistant to stains, scratches and fading color. Not only is porcelain a breeze to clean, but it’s made from natural ingredients.
Porcelain tile has a 60+ year life expectancy, so you definitely get your money’s worth. It’s perfect for walls, floors and indoor/outdoor installations. Rated for high-traffic areas, you won’t have to worry about your porcelain floor degrading over time. With one of the longest lifespans and smallest life cycle costs, porcelain tile is the perfect option for residential or commercial installation. At True Porcelain Co. we are committed to producing the highest quality, affordable and innovative tile on the market.
Our porcelain tile is made from locally sourced materials, which contributes to the fact that porcelain tile has the lowest carbon footprint of any flooring option. Our tile is:
Impervious to water
Here are a few common things you should consider when purchasing a floor:
1. How much foot traffic will that room see?
2. Will dirt and mud be tracked in from the outside?
3. Will the humidity be stable, or will it fluctuate throughout the day?
4. Will that room be exposed to water, such as a kitchen or bathroom?
Handling nearly anything that life (or family) throws at it, porcelain tile is the TRUSTED and most durable flooring option on the market. Our porcelain tile will never warp, expand or shrink.
Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs, evaporate from both man-made and natural materials at room temperature. While not all VOCs are dangerous, the ones that are can slowly build up in an individual’s body and can have dangerous and long-term side effects on their health. Certain flooring types such as vinyl, carpet, and hardwood emit VOCs. No VOC is emitted from porcelain, and because of its TRUE impervious nature to water (<0.5% water absorption rate), mold or mildew will not be able to grow in your sub flooring. For individuals who suffer from allergies, or one’s own concern with their long-term health, porcelain is the perfect option.
