Tile Flooring for a Bathroom: Porcelain or Ceramic?

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Sandra in South Dakota has a question about tile flooring. How can we help you with your project?

    SANDRA: We bought a house that was built in ’78 and I don’t think it’s been updated since then.

    TOM: OK.

    SANDRA: And I want to start my redo with my bathroom.

    TOM: Alright.

    SANDRA: And I’ve been wondering – I don’t know whether I should go porcelain or ceramic or – I’m stuck on what type of tile I should use.

    TOM: OK. So, I see here that you told our screener that you want a tile that can hold up to cats, dogs and kids.

    SANDRA: Yes.

    TOM: Either porcelain or ceramic will work but porcelain will be very expensive for you. And ceramic tile, there’s so many options in it. As long as you get a glazed tile and that you use an epoxy grout, that combination will be very easy to clean.

    SANDRA: OK, great. Thank you very much.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
