                Ceramic tiles are considered one of the most favoured flooring and wall covering options in homes and offices today. Whilst ceramic tiles are made to last a lifetime, however the wrong choice of tiles, or the wrong method used in its installation may lead to expensive tiling failures over time.

      Given the wide-ranging choice of tiles and the different tile types available in the market, this session discusses how the different types of tiles are distinguished and categorized and review the importance of good tiling practices and maintenance care for the tiles so that potential failures can be avoided.
