What type of tiles do you use for a front porch?
There are a variety of options available. Porcelain tiles are dense and are a good option for outdoor areas, or concrete tiles are another great option that are colourful and are more then capable of withstanding a high volume of foot traffic. Whatever your preference, there are many shapes and sizes of tile available.
Some other options include stone, slate, limestone, and travertine. There is always something well suited to any property, that will blend in seamlessly with the surroundings.
Do outdoor porcelain tiles crack easily?
Porcelain tiles consist of fine clays and these are fired at very high temperatures, this makes them dense and less porous. As these tiles are mostly made from natural products they are less prone to cracking. They are also less likely to suffer with stain absorption, which in turn makes them a perfect option for any porch way.
How thick should outdoor tiles be?
Ideally it is best to use a tile with a thickness of 10mm-20mm when installing them outside. In comparison, indoor tiles are normally between 6-10mm thick.
Do porcelain outdoor tiles chip easily?
Outdoor porcelain tiles are normally much denser then ceramic tiles, and therefore their rate of absorption is low, which means they are less likely to get chipped. There is another added advantage that they can withstand frost as well. Porcelain tiles are an excellent option for any outdoor space including porch tiling.
