Is glazed porcelain tile durable?

Yes, as a general rule porcelain tile is quite durable. However, it needs to be handled delicately upon installation to avoid cracks, breakage, or chipping. Once porcelain tile is properly installed you can expect to see it perform well for years on end. Glazed and unglazed porcelain tile is very dense meaning the composition of the tile is consistent from its surface to its core. The hardness of porcelain allows it to stand the test of time in spaces where less dense materials would break down.
