When it comes to selecting a material for your walls and floors, you have a wealth of options in the market. Some materials score over others simply on the basis of their long-term performance in various applications inside and outside the home.

For instance, if you have to choose between timber and porcelain, the best way to make a fair selection is to assess their physical characteristics, performance, need for maintenance and durability.

Timber Vs Porcelain

Timber is porous, not slip rated, and susceptible to warping, rotting, splintering, cracking and swelling. It can fade, stain and wear easily, and demands high maintenance. Wood is flammable and also attracts mould.

In comparison, porcelain is non-porous and slip rated, won’t warp, scratch, crack or swell, is UV, chlorine and saltwater safe, has fire resistance, and needs minimal maintenance.
