Our slate, quartzite and porcelain tiles are well suited for all climates. Since it’s freeze-thaw rated, porcelain can stand up to even the most extreme winter weather conditions.

How durable is outdoor floor tile?

Tile is a very tough, durable material. It is a smart idea to work with one of our sales associates so they can lead you through your selection process as each home’s outdoor space is unique.

Is it slippery when it’s wet?

It depends on the material and finish. There are some textures that will be slippery when wet, so you should certainly avoid installing those around pool areas. The Tile Shop offers several non-slip and anti-slip tile choices.

Keep your tile looking great by regularly sweeping and cleaning with a natural stone or ceramic and porcelain tile cleaner from Superior Adhesives & Chemicals.

Can you paint outdoor tile?

Yes. It’s a great way to freshen up the look of your patio or terrace. Keep in mind that certain paint finishes could make your tile more slippery.

Can you tile outdoor steps?

Yes. Installing tile on steps and stairs can add a non-slip texture that will help ensure your outdoor area remains as safe as possible.

Can you put tile on a concrete patio?

Yes. Be sure to clean the concrete and apply a sealant that will prevent moisture from settling under your tiles and allow your mortar to adhere tightly.
