How durable is ceramic tile?

Thumbtack Editors

Ceramic tiles are very durable and highly water-resistant. However, they can chip, especially if they are in an area like the kitchen or utility room where they are exposed to a lot of moving materials.

Although ceramic tiles are not quite as durable as porcelain, they are less expensive and simpler to install, making them a popular choice for flooring in every room of the house. 

Consult with the best tile contractors near you to plan your tile installation project.
