Elevate The Interior & Exterior Beauty
Whether you are designing an interior or exterior space, if you are looking for wall cladding that is both durable and eye-catching, porcelain is the material for you.
Porcelain Wall Cladding
At Quartex Surfaces, we offer porcelain slabs in a variety of colours, textures, and finishes, making it suitable for any project, design aesthetic or budget. From outdoor kitchen walls to feature walls within your home, porcelain wall cladding can be used to elevate the beauty of any space. In addition to its unique and stunning design potential, porcelain wall cladding is durable, non-porous, low-maintenance, frost-resistant, hygienic, and environmentally friendly.
We carry a wide range of porcelain wall cladding with options as unique as our clients. Whether you prefer a finish that closely resembles metal, natural wood or stones such as slate, travertine and granite, or a porcelain slab that has been designed to replicate semi-precious stones, gems, or crystals, we can customize your wall cladding to suit your particular design project. Porcelain wall cladding is available in a vast array of sizes which can be tailored to fit your space. You can also choose between a natural, smooth, polished, or textured finish. Regardless of your selection, your porcelain wall cladding is sure to make a statement and be a showstopper in any space, big or small.
The extreme strength and durability of porcelain makes it an ideal choice for wall cladding. Although finishes such as limestone and marble are aesthetically appealing, they are susceptible to scratching, cracking, and staining. As such, they do not withstand the test of time. Conversely, porcelain, which closely resembles natural stone, is an incredibly resilient material that will not fade, scratch, or stain over time. In fact, this hard-wearing material is rated 7 on MOH’s hardness scale, which is used to quantify the strength of materials. To put this into context, only the world’s toughest materials such as diamonds and topaz rank higher than porcelain, while finishes such as marble are rated as low as 3. In addition, porcelain wall cladding will maintain its colour indefinitely due to the manufacturing process, which uses extremely high temperatures to lock in the colour. This makes it a much more resilient option than ceramic tiles, for example, which have just one layer of colour and consequently flake, wear, and fade very quickly. The durability of porcelain means it is well suited to outdoor spaces and is a popular choice for external walls which are frequently exposed to the elements. Whether you choose porcelain wall cladding as an interior or exterior finish, we offer a “lifetime limited warranty” against manufacturer defects as long as you are the original owner of the material.
Porcelain wall cladding is incredibly easy to maintain due to its non-porous nature. Unlike natural stone, which requires the use of a sealant, porcelain is self-sealing and impermeable, which means it will not be damaged by water and is much less likely to stain. This makes it an ideal choice for exterior walls and active commercial spaces.
While many materials require frequent maintenance, porcelain wall cladding does not require glazing or re-glazing. As a result, it is a popular choice for commercial spaces such as shopping centres, airports, and schools as well as busy residential areas. Its dense nature makes it a practical and longwearing choice for any space. Although it requires very little maintenance, it is important to take care to ensure the longevity of your investment. Porcelain wall cladding should be wiped clean with a pH-balanced cleaner to eliminate dirt and reduce the likelihood of staining. Abrasive products or those containing bleach or ammonia should be avoided in order to prevent staining or discolouring the cladding.
Porcelain is an optimal choice for exterior wall cladding due to its frost-resistant nature. While materials such as concrete are susceptible to cracking when exposed to the freeze-thaw cycle, porcelain is unaffected by sub-zero temperatures, which makes it ideal for use in outdoor kitchens or other exterior structures in Canadian climates.
Because porcelain is non-porous, dirt and bacteria will not build up on its surface. As a result, it is a clean and hygienic material which is well suited to both interior and exterior spaces. This makes porcelain wall cladding a popular choice for outdoor kitchens and commercial and public spaces such as professional kitchens and hospitals.
Porcelain is an environmentally friendly wall cladding option as it is comprised of natural, bio-degradable products. Unlike many other materials, which require the use of harmful waterproofing varnishes and resins, porcelain tiles do not necessitate the use of polishing agents because they are naturally water-resistant. In addition, unlike materials such as natural stone, no harmful gases are emitted when porcelain is exposed to heat.
For a truly unique and durable finish, consider choosing porcelain for your wall cladding. Whether your project is indoors or outdoors, classic or contemporary, porcelain is the ideal material for any space and budget. At Quartex Surfaces, we can help you achieve your design goals regardless of your aesthetic. Our knowledgeable and friendly customer care team will help you select the best porcelain for your space from our wide array of options that range from subtle finishes resembling natural stone such as granite to jewel-toned showstoppers mimicking semi-precious stones and gems.
