Porcelain Granite Tiles

Porcelain granite tiles, made by a process similar to mosaic tiles, are difficult to distinguish from natural granite once installed. And in many cases, they are more durable than the real thing! Being "rock hard," porcelain granite tiles are hard to cut. This translates into an almost indestructible floor covering.

Because porcelain granite tiles are very dense, they are almost completely waterproof and frost-proof. Porcelain granite tiles come in several sizes, and the available finishes include slate, matte, and polished. This type of granite is relatively expensive. Those that are honed and polished cost as much or more than real granite. Although these tiles are used mainly in commercial applications, they are definitely suitable for use in the home.
