Is Ceramic tile good?

Recommended Posts

It might be, compared to other products. Bricks are great outdoors, but bricks with a bit too much porosity, especially glazed bricks can be damaged by freeze thaw. Each product has the very same issue. So bricks made of clay, even ceramic faced bricks can last 50-100 years or or more with a proper installation and reasonable maintenance.

So ceramic can be durable and comes in a variety of porosity levels as well as grout can be epoxy based and water proof. Is ceramic good for outdoors, it depends on picking an appropriate product, applying correctly to a suitable substrate, account for the environment exposed to, and routine maintenance of course. Lots of pools use tiles - pretty good long lasting solution depending on application, product, substrate, drainage, etc…
