What Are The Advantages Of Engineered Tile Over Natural Stone Or Ceramic?

Many people love the luxurious and upscale look of a natural stone, ceramic or porcelain tile floor, but these have certain drawbacks. Fortunately, engineered tile is a great alternative.

More Comfortable

Traditional tiles have a hard, cold and unforgiving surface that it can be uncomfortable to stand on. Engineered tile looks like natural stone or ceramic tile on the surface, but is actually warmer to the touch and softer underfoot. In the rooms where you are most often standing, i.e. the kitchen or the bathroom, you will be happy to have a floor that is more pleasant on your feet.

Resists Cracking

If a hard object falls on a natural stone, ceramic or porcelain tile floor, you are dealing with a crack that is difficult and expensive to repair. Engineered tile is more tolerant of drops and accidents and is not susceptible to cracking due to minor irregularities in the subfloor. If for some reason a tile is damaged, engineered tile is much easier to replace.
