Tile Tip...

Can I use a ceramic tile outside?

* If you live in an area where frost occurs it is not recommended to install ceramic tiles outside. The reason is because the body of ceramic tile can absorb small amounts of water during the day, then at night when temperatures drop the water from inside the tile will expand, crack the tile and pop it off of the mortar bed. A porcelain tile is recommended for all exterior applications, it will not absorb water.
