When you need waterproof floors, try tile flooring

Floor tile is an excellent choice for homeowners looking to protect their homes from water damage. These floors offer excellent protection you can take advantage of in any room.

It's worth some time to learn more about these materials and what they can do for you. Then, you're sure to find the perfect match for your lifestyle and decor.

Are tiles genuinely waterproof?

Porcelain tile is far less porous than ceramic tiles, but both can work with a sealant or coating. Some floor tile carries a nonporous classification and works very well in bathrooms.

If you have concerns about the waterproof attributes of the tile you love, be sure to speak with us. We'll give you all the details on a product-by-product basis.

What about waterproof grout?

We recommend epoxy grout for the best results in areas where moisture and spills are common. When used with the best materials, you're sure to appreciate the results.

One of the most critical aspects of ensuring your waterproof protection is maintenance. Be sure to maintain these floors well and call our tile store for repair if you find damaged grout or tiles.

Ceramic tile is a possibility too

Ceramic tile has an absorption rate that is a bit higher than porcelain, but this isn't an issue. Like porcelain, the weakest link is grouting that has damage or disrepair.

You'll be well protected in every room no matter which option you choose. With regular maintenance, these floors will last 50 years or more.
