What are Terracotta Tiles?
Terracotta is a strong, durable material that is also naturally resistant to mold and bacteria. These tiles can last for decades when they’re installed properly! Because they are naturally porous, these tiles should be professionally sealed to hold up against stains, scratches, and moisture.
They are often used for outdoor rooms, or patios, as they offer a natural non-slip feel. Terracotta tiles are a distinctive tile as they are usually displayed in earthy colourings (ochre, tan, sand, etc.)
Sealing your Tiles
Terracotta tiles are beautiful, and they lend an informal and somewhat rustic or even southwestern air to residential floors. As a raw product, it is always recommended that this type of flooring be sealed. A good sealer will last up to 10 years.
