Ceramic & Porcelain Tile at Floor Coverings International in Houston, TX

Low-Maintenance, Sturdy, and Stylishly Customizable

Tile is a durable, versatile flooring option that can look great in any room of the house – it is water-resistant, it does not stain, and it comes in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and designs.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are manufactured by glazing thin pieces of clay. Then, these pieces are fired in a kiln for enhanced durability. Tiles are usually installed in entryways, bathrooms, and kitchens and they commonly used as coverings for floors, walls, and countertops in those areas.

At Floor Coverings International Houston Heights, our knowledgeable flooring team has ample experience in installation of all tile types, including ceramic and porcelain tiles. We can assist you from start to finish on your next flooring project – from helping you find ideal samples and offering guidance to performing high-quality installations and more.

To help you decide whether tile flooring is right for your home, let us mention some pros and cons:


Durable – Ceramic and porcelain tiles are very durable, regardless of climate. However, porcelain tile is typically more durable when compared to ceramic tile as it is heated at a higher temperature.

Low-maintenance – Tile is also very easy to clean. A few whiffs with a damp towel or sponge should do the trick. As tiles are resistant to water and humidity, this flooring option is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms and other areas with water exposure.

Countless style options – When it comes to tile, there is literally an endless variety of sizes, colors, and patterns to choose from.


Hard underfoot – Although ceramic and porcelain materials are naturally cool, perfect for dry and hot Texas climates, they can be hard and comfortable underfoot.

Susceptible to chips and cracks – When installed improperly, tiles can easily crack or chip away, especially ceramic ones. To ensure proper installation and long-lasting tiles, choose working with a trusted local company such as Floor Coverings International.
