Porcelain tile excellent material for facing steps

Is porcelain border suitable for facing faces

Porcelain stoneware is very common material for facing steps.

Basically, not a special type is used, designed for facing surfaces on the street and not absorbing moisture, but mainly economical or Chinese-made options, which, due to absorbed moisture in frosts, begin to collapse. The next problem is the base of the steps, which, depending on the material, as well as the quality of manufacture, can give shrinkage and, accordingly, lead to cracks, which in turn leads to the destruction of the facing of the steps with tiles. Therefore, it is very important to prevent all these problems, if you still decide to make the faces of the steps with porcelain tiles, make a strong qualitative base and use elastic moisture and frost-resistant glue for tiles when working.
