FLOORING: WHICH TILE SHOULD I GO FOR? AN ADVICE by ThatHistoryGuy(m): 6:57pm On Jun 28, 2018
Some of our engineers/contractors are really wicked grin.
I once went to make delivery to a client in lekki phase II where an engineer was working for him.He saw my add here on nairaland and linked me to his engineer to supply him some stuffs. When I got there I noticed the tiles the engineer used for his sitting room was the worst of Nigerian ceramic tiles which can start washing anytime depending on the traffic within the space. This is a client that didn't bargain much on the price of the stuffs he bought from me which shows the money is there,even the engineer told me that whenever he want to update him he does that through Skype.


So I Mr Ralph aka ThatHistoryGuy aka Classicman aka Ralphdan on cool behalf of epic_ceramics thought I should educate our #realestate_developers #prospective_home_owners #propective_hotels_owners #contractors #engineers etc on the best tile to buy when next you need tiles for your house flooring and also to let you know which tile to instist on when telling your contractor/engineer the qualities to use.


Thus we will be talking about :

*Category 1
#Vetrified tiles
#Porcelain tiles
#Ceramic tiles

*Category 2
#Spanish tiles
#Italian tiles
#Chinese
&
#Nigerian tiles

*Sizes of tiles that can be found in the Nigerian tile market but are not common( just contact epic_ceramics if you need any of the sizes below)
10x20 porcelain tiles
90x90 porcelain Spanish made tiles
60x120 porcelain Spanish made tiles
75x150 porcelain Spanish made tiles
23x150 porcelain Woodenlike tiles
120x120 porcelain Spanish made tiles
3D tiles
Center decoration tiles

Feel free to raise any matter that is of concern to you.

On Vitrified tiles
This is the best quality of tiles. This kind of tiles are made to be used as an alternative to granites and marble.It is the best for a high trafficked area cus no matter the the traffic the surface remain the same colour. This is because its produced in a way that the same colour on the surface is the same colour at the back and by the side.So the same colour penetrates throughout the entire thickness of the tile. This kind of tile is non porous and highly resistant to water. Made through the process of vitrification and so has glass texture.
Vitrified tiles are more costly than all other tiles,more durable and is available in Spanish, Italian,Chinese and Nigerian tiles.
There are pure vitrified tiles and partly vitrified tiles.
Best for
*staircase
*varader
*high traffic areas
mostly used in banks
can serve for long period of time.

On Porcelain tiles

Porcelain tiles are also made of white ceramics however they are made to be stronger and with a better technology than normal ceramic tiles.Made to be much harder and resistant to wear and damages than ceramic tiles.Porcelain tiles are more costly than normal ceramic tiles. Its usually available in matte,semi-glazed and highly glossy surface .On a matte surface porcelain tile would be almost the same as a vitrified tile cus the same colour at the matte surface would be the same colour at the back though it would be noticeable when it starts to wear off.
*porcelain are best for a fairly trafficked area
*its stronger than ceramic tiles
*produced to be more durable than ceramic tiles
*more water resistant than ceramic tiles
*best for the sitting room and rooms
*the back of a porcelain tile is mostly but not always white while the surface can be any colour
*the back of a porcelain tile is never muddy in colour

And on Ceramic tiles

This is the least quality of all the above listed categories
Muddy look at the back and any other colour at the surface
Suitable for a low trafficked floor areas but can always be used as wall tile
All Nigerian wall tiles are ceramics
Most Spanish wall tiles are ceramics while few others are porcelain
Made of clay and highly resistant to water
Come either matte surfaced or glossy
Not a bad choice for rooms

On Spanish tiles

This is one of the best tiles if not the best in the Nigerian market. This is due to the advancement in the technology used for its production. What makes a tile better than another in most cases is how resistant its surface is to foot pressure in the cause of time. In the case of Spanish porcelain tiles for floor,its surface coating is made to be strong enough to last for as long as 10-15 yrs depending on the traffic around the area. On Spanish wall tiles what really make it different is its superiority in weight and also looks before and after installations. Unlike Nigerian tiles that will always look poor after installations mostly due to its inconsistency in colour after production which usually reflect so obviously after installations,Spanish wall tiles will appear clean and consistent after installations most especially if it's a job well done. Spanish tiles are though costly but "na money kill better thing" grin

Spanish tiles

It has been under contention which is more qualitative between Spanish tiles and Italian tiles. While I believe Italian tiles are better Spanish tiles however are very qualitative considering the fact that EU technologies are very advanced compared to that of Africa and third worlds in general. Spanish and Italian tiles are the major EU tiles found in the Nigerian markets,though there are few others like Norway but not significantly enough .

Spanish tiles are of more popular demand in the Nigerian market as they are more assorted in designs, colours ,shapes,sizes and qualities than any other country including Nigeria. They come in:
60x60 both porcelain and vetrified
20x60 ceramic and porcelain
30x90 ceramic and porcelain
30x60 porcelain n ceramic
60x120 porcelain
75x150 porcelain
33x33 ceramic and porcelain
23x120 ceramic and porcelain
23x150 porcelain
45x45 porcelain and ceramic
Etc
No other country is this assorted on tiles in the Nigerian tile market.
