Tile flooring has many more advantages but as with every product, it also has some disadvantages. Let’s consider them all before making a choice! Tiles are very durable as they are moisture resistant and are able to handle high amounts of foot traffic. This prevents deterioration and decreases the likelihood of regular flooring maintenance. Tiles are also impervious to extreme temperatures and do not rot or corrode when exposed to chemical agents or extreme weather. Some tile floorings are glazed or coated with liquid glass to protect them from stains, making them easier to clean. Furthermore, they don’t possess chemically active properties, therefore inhibiting viruses, mold, fungi and other bacteria from developing.
Ceramic tiles don’t need to exploit environmental resources like trees or plants in its construction. You also won’t need to use any harsh chemicals for cleaning which may otherwise be harmful to the environment.
Tiles come in a wide range of sizes, colors, textures, designs, and styles to suit anyone’s taste. And considering all other costs like installation and maintenance, tiles turn out to be more affordable in the long run.

Cons Of Tile Flooring
Tiles often cause mutual destruction when objects fall on them. Such as glass and on themselves such as cracks and chipping. While tiles are easy to maintain, grout lines require more attention as they are prone to stains and mildew build-up given the amount of wear these grout lines generally endure. This is a manageable issue though with a little vinegar and water to revitalize your grout lines.
Tiles warm up and cool down according to the weather outside. During colder weather tiles may make feet feel colder, however in warmer months tiles inside the home away from direct sunlight have the ability to keep the house cool. Now you have all the details to understand if a tile floor is your thing or not.
