Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tile is produced by pressing refined white clay into shape and then firing it in a kiln at very high temperatures. The resulting tile is extremely hard, absorbs very little or no water, and doesn’t stain or mildew.

Porcelain tile is manufactured in all shapes and sizes, and, because its base color is white, there is virtually no limit to the colors and finishes available. Tile makers can also imprint textures when the tile is pressed, giving them slip-resistant surfaces well suited for wet locations.

Color is not added to porcelain tile with glaze (as it is with ceramic tile). Instead, dye is mixed into the clay and so goes all the way through the tile – a very good thing if you ever chip one. The lack of glaze also means that tile makers can press finer, more intricate textures and patterns into the tile when it is manufactured. Porcelain tile can even be pressed so that it’s nearly indistinguishable from cut stone, which tends to be more expensive but less durable. For ease of maintenance, porcelain is hard to beat. Its smooth finish and imperviousness to moisture keep soil and stains from setting in, making it easy to clean up.

Porcelain wall tile is thinner and lighter than porcelain floor tile, but is otherwise identical.  As with ceramic wall tile, porcelain comes in a large assortment of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns, including accompanying trim and border pieces.  Like porcelain floor tile, the colors in porcelain wall tile are tinted rather than glazed, so the colors generally run the full thickness of the tile, making scratches on the surface less noticeable.

We are excited to raise money to go and give a family a home! The J. L. Remodeling crew is going to donate their time and money to go down to Honduras to give Joel and Ana and their two children a home! We are trying to raise the money to pay for the dwelling which is only $12,000!! In addition to that it will cost about $800 each to pay for food and lodging. We can do it!
