Could use some help on ceramic vs duraceramic tile


I don't install ceramic or duraceramic. Like I said above, it depends on how long you want the product to last. A properly installed and maintained ceramic floor will last a lifetime. Properly installed and maintained duraceramic will last several years. It all depends on what you want and need.

The only thing that a prospective Duraceramic buyer has to do is just GOOGLE IT!

All of the answers and complaints are there for all to find. I didn't register all of those complaints under assumed names. I don't cause the product to nick. I don't cause chair legs to scratch the surface. I don't cause the clear wear-surface to peel off. I don't cause the corners to curl upward. I don't cause the tile to shrink away from the grout. I don't cause the tiles to release from the substrate.

GOOGLE IT, that's all - just GOOGLE IT!

Could use some help on ceramic vs duraceramic tile


i had to check and see what this duraceramic was.
the biggest complaint i saw was that it chipped easily.
the prices i saw was from 3.60 to 5.09 a sq ft.
i'm putting 22"x22" porcelain in my kitchen for 1.49 a foot.
looks like the duraceramic is a little better then laminate but not as good as tile. but for the price i would go with laminate that looks like tile rather then the duraceramic just for economic reasons. less investment for laminate so when you have to change it you arent throwing away so much as you would with the duraceramic. a few reviews i read the people thought the stuff was crap. but everyone dislike something. i guess if you pay to have someone install it and its crap you really feel like you been taken. i'll stick with the proven porcelein and save money over duraceramic.
