History Of This Great Ceramic Floor
Domestic buildings ranging from large apartment buildings to small private houses, institutional buildings such as government offices and schools, and religious buildings such as cathedrals and mosques. Historically, its widespread use may be attributed to the fact that a readily available natural material—clay—could be converted by a relatively simple manufacturing process—baking or firing—into a very durable, long-lasting and attractive floor tile that is easy to maintain.
Ceramic floor tiles exhibit a versatility of colored glazes and decoration, and they range from the plainest Terracotta tiles to highly decorated individual ceramic tiles and elaborately patterned tile floors. Their molecularity, as standardized units, make them easy to fit into different sized spaces which also explains much of the popularity of ceramic floor tiles throughout history.
This information begins with an overview of ceramic tiles as a traditional flooring material. It includes an explanation of the various kinds of historic floor tiles used in the United Kingdom and how they were made.
General guidance is given on preservation treatments, focusing on maintenance, and, when necessary, selective replacement of damaged floor tiles. The Brief is intended to provide owners and managers of historic properties with an understanding of the significance and historical background of ceramic floor tiles, and a basic awareness of maintenance techniques and various deterioration problems to which tile floors are especially prone.
In the case of significant historic ceramic tile floors, a professional conservator of ceramics should be consulted to advise in matters of repair, restoration or conservation. Historically, ceramic tiles were used on walls as wainscoting, on fireplace hearths and fireplace surrounds, and even on furniture, as well as for flooring.
However, because floor tiles are subject to greater damage and deterioration, they are the primary emphasis of this Brief. Highlights include: a short history of ceramic floor tiles; a description of ceramic tile types; a summary of traditional installation methods; maintenance techniques; and guidance on repair and replacement.
Ceramics Floors are manufactured materials which are made mostly from clay and other natural substances. They are durable, resilient, and able to withstand the challenges posed by a variety of environments. At the same time they can also be cold, hard, and uncomfortable to stand on for long periods of time. By understanding all of the characteristics of ceramics you will be able to make an informed decision about their use.
