Q. What is the difference between porcelain and ceramic?

Q. Where can I use porcelain and ceramic?
A. We recommend that you only use ceramic on counter tops and walls. porcelain can be used anywhere indoor/outdoor floors, walls, and counter tops.
Q. Do I have to seal porcelain?
A. No most porcelains have less than a .05 absorption rate which makes it impervious.
Q. What material do I have to seal?

Q. I want to do white tile but white grout is a nightmare to keep clean what are my alternatives?
A. With a standard non sanded or sanded grout you would want to seal it, OR now they make stain/mildew resistant grouts such as Customs Fusion Pro that do not require any sealers.
Q. How do I apply sealer?
A. Sealer has to be applied to with a solvent resistant paint pad/brush. It has to be solvent resistant because sealers have active minerals in it that protects tile. If you used a regular sponge that is porous it would take the active minerals out of the sealer which would defeat the purpose of sealing.
