What are the Benefits of Tiles?
If you are looking for a high end look to your pool, adding tiles is the way to go. Tiles are a premium upgrade becaus of their durability and appearance. Also, if you compare tiles to vinyl, tiles are more durable and easier to clean and require less maintenance.
There are two types of tiles used as pool tiles. There are ceramic and glass tiles. They are usually under 100mm in size. They have a mesh backing forming a sheet around 300 x 300mm in size. Over the past 15 years, glass have gained in popularity. Because they are made from glass, there are no pores as do ceramic tiles. This means the manufacturers need to include latex additives so they stick to the pool. Because of the added manufacturing processes, they are more expensive then ceramic pool tiles.
