Commercial tile and residential tile a different. Commercial tile requires a thicker material to withstand the heavier foot traffic as well as be more resistant to slipping to prevent any risk of injury to your customers or guests. There are a number of tile types to consider for your commercial tile installation.
Ceramic Tile Installation
Primarily made from clay, ceramic tile is formed using a variety of methods, and alongside the natural stone, it is one of the largest categories of tile material.
Non-Porcelain + Porcelain
Made from white, red, or brown clay and minerals, conventional ceramic tile is non-porcelain. On the other hand, porcelain tile combines the same clay and minerals but is also fifty percent feldspar, which is a white crystal that makes ceramic more glass-like. Either non-porcelain or porcelain can be glazed, adding extra protection to your tiles when it comes to stain and scratch defense, traction, and less water intake. However, between the two, non-porcelain is the more cost-effective tile choice because it offers natural stain defense and better sturdiness.
Formed from lava or magma that has solidified, granite is a very dense type of rock that is crystallized by the presence of minerals. Because of its solidity and elegance, granite is a popular choice for tile in kitchens or other high-traffic areas.
A type of metamorphic rock, marble has been exposed to heat and stress, making it more porous and less tough than granite. Marble is not recommended for tile flooring in kitchen areas unless it is regularly sealed and honed.
Offering a more natural, earthy look, limestone is a type of sedimentary rock that is less dense than both granite and marble. Because of this, limestone is more susceptive to scratches and stains, making it less suitable for kitchen flooring and spaces with high foot traffic.
Combining crystallized minerals with earthy tones, travertine is a type of limestone that is soft and porous. While including natural divots, this type of tile requires a lot of upkeep and is not endorsed for kitchen flooring.
Mostly offering darker natural tones, slate is a type of metamorphic rock that is very solid and strong, making it perfect for kitchens and commercial areas that experience a higher amount of foot traffic.
