The Many Benefits Of External Porcelain Tiles

The Many Benefits Of External Porcelain Tiles

Visit any of the House of Tiles tile shops located around Dublin and you’ll find a magnificent range of the finest-quality home improvement products. From bathroom suites to kitchen wall tiles to laminate flooring, you can get everything you need, all in one place and at great prices too.

Today, we’re here to tell you about one of the popular lines we offer to our customers - high quality external porcelain tiles. They offer a wide range of benefits that make them a savvy investment, so let’s take a look at a few of them now…

External porcelain tiles are great because they’re:

  • Super-strong - due to being twice as thick as standard indoor tiles

  • Stain resistant - as they’re created from a non-porous vitrified porcelain

  • Frost-proof - because of the absorption-free materials they’re made from

  • Moss & Mould-resistant - meaning they don’t get slippery when wet

  • Slip-rated - further to that, they’re R11 rated, so they’re ideal for use around swimming pools, pathways, balconies and steps

  • Rectified & calibrated - meaning they have straight, even edges

  • Scratch-resistant - much more so than concrete and natural stone

  • Available in many styles & designs - meaning that you can enjoy their physical properties, while matching your existing property design

  • Have a high load-bearing strength - allowing them to withstand the impact of furniture and foot traffic

  • Able to be cut & profiled - meaning you can create whatever shape you like for unusually-shaped patios and stairs

Now, the value offered is clear, but if you’d like a closer look at their quality and design, why not pop into our Sandyford branch, where you can find our new external porcelain tile display which showcases why they’re so popular?
