Is tile flooring crack-proof?

Is tile flooring crack-proof?

Depending on the care and quality of installation, yes, tile flooring will be crack-proof. It's beautiful, durable, easy to clean, and long-lasting–up to 40 years.

The importance of professional installation

It's critical that the installer adequately prepares the subfloor. This is the foundation of any surface; the subfloor should be even, clean, and dry.

The installer may also use unique boards, especially if the subfloor is concrete. Concrete is damp, and tile is porous, meaning tiles can expand and crack.

Maintaining your tile flooring

Clean both tile and grout regularly. In addition, you should seek the advice of the experts in the tile flooring store on proper cleaning and the best products to use.

You do this so dirt, mold, and moisture don't get under the tiles and lift them. Remember, too, that tile is porous, and moisture will make it expand.

Also, be sure to use the right type for your project

You'll see unlimited colors, styles, shapes, and sizes. Keep in mind, however, that not all tiles are the same.

Each has different strength and absorption levels, determining how and where they can be used. Describe your project and read labels when shopping for tile in St. Croix Falls, WI.  

You don't want to use a wall tile on the floor–or one meant for low-traffic areas in a heavily foot trafficked area, such as the kitchen.
