How To Determine A Floor Tile’s Quality

Quality advice is the key to a successful tiling projectIt may surprise many people to learn that floor and wall tiles aren’t generally marked to indicate what sort of tiles they are, or what the quality of the tiles are. This leaves customers at the mercy of sales people, some of whom will say and do anything to make a sale. Having the right tile for the intended environment is of utmost importance – more important than the look of the tile. In some cases, tiles may not be the best option, and you need to be talking to someone who is willing to state that well before you purchase your tiles.

Like every other walk in life, there are unscrupulous people in the floor tile industry. They will bend the truth in order to make a sale, or in the case of ‘trades’ people, cut corners to make a bigger profit. There is only one way of ensuring you are buying a good quality tile, and that’s by buying from well-respected floor tile sales centers.
