Porcelain 101

Porcelain is manufactured from clay that is rich in the mineral known as kaolinite. Other elements of porcelain that give the material its shiny color include feldspar, silica and mineral oxides. Many people think of porcelain in connection to “fine china,” i.e. the material you would normally find in a fancy dining set. Yet porcelain countertop slabs and tiles are far from delicate. Forged in fire and coated with pigmented glaze to increase strength and beauty, the porcelain we use in your kitchen is more akin to what you would find in your bathroom—except that it’s even more durable. During the glazing process, it is possible to fabricate colors that look like natural stone, so your porcelain countertop also has the same veined look found in marble or granite.

Why Go with Porcelain Countertops?

Porcelain looks great, but this is not its only advantage. Porcelain countertops are surprisingly sturdy, can be easily installed, and are customizable, so you can get the exact look you want for your kitchen

Benefits of porcelain countertops from William French include:

  • We offer a range of colors: With the diverse pigmentation we offer in our porcelain countertypes, you will be able to find the perfect hue and color to fit your kitchen. They also won’t discolor overtime, so whether you’re redoing your existing décor or going through some upgrades, you can trust that your choice will look great for years to come.
  • They come in multiple patterns: If you want your porcelain countertops to look more like marble or other natural stones, we offer pigmentation patterns that contain veining and look so convincing, you won’t even be able to tell the difference!
  • They come in multiple finishes: We offer matte and polished surface options for our porcelain counters, and can provide mitered edged to really increase style and appearance.
  • Multiple slab sizes are available: We can provide your home with large porcelain slabs, including ones that are bigger than your average natural stone slabs. Consider covering your kitchen counter with one piece of porcelain, thereby reducing seams and grout joints, decreasing the chance of further maintenance issues, and cutting down on installation costs.
  • Porcelain is extremely strong: Did you know that porcelain has been found to be 30% stronger than granite? It may sound crazy, but it’s true! The fire porcelain is forged in makes it extremely tough, cutting down on the number of chips cracks, scratches, and general wearing down your countertop will experience.
  • Porcelain is extremely durable: After that last fact, are you really surprised about this one? Because porcelain countertops are so strong, they also last for many years.
  • Porcelain slabs are less heavy: While first generation porcelain slabs were thick and heavy, the newer ones are much thinner and more lightweight—another reason they are easy to install.
  • Porcelain offers versatility: Because porcelain slabs are thin and lightweight, they can be added as backsplashes to existing wall panels, to the sides of cabinetry, and as decorative accents, in addition to making great island countertops. If you want to customize your whole kitchen, it’s easy to do so with porcelain!
  • We install porcelain countertops over existing countertops: Yet another thing making the porcelain installation process remarkably easy, putting porcelain on top of existing countertops may reduce the price and hassle of tearing away old material.
  • Sealing is not necessary: In contrast to natural stones which must be sealed during the countertop installation process and then resealed again every few years, the fire-glazing on porcelain countertops counteracts moisture and makes the material more stain-resistant.
  • Porcelain is heat-resistant: In addition to combatting against liquids and stains, fire-forged porcelain protects your countertops from heat, making it the perfect material to put hot pans and other cooking equipment on.
  • Cleanup is a breeze: The glaze on porcelain essentially makes it waterproof, and the heat-resistance makes it perfect for wiping with warm water or a damp cloth. A clean, hygienic surface, you do not need to use harsh chemicals like bleach to scrub porcelain—although if you do, they won’t stain either.
  • Porcelain is recyclable: Trying to go green? Porcelain is the perfect option for your kitchen! The clay in porcelain is already made from largely recycled material, and if you do decide to switch your countertops out, they can easily be repurposed and made into other products.

  • Honest, helpful, do quality work and their pricing is very reasonable, everyone loved the final product!

    “Whole Home Remodeling, Home Updates, Repeat Client in Coppell Project Date: April 2015 Project Price: $10,000 – $49,999. I’ve remodeled two homes in Coppell with William French and they are wonderful people to work with! I know them to be honest, helpful, do quality work and their pricing is very reasonable. All the issues that come up with a complete remodel were handled well, even with a ton of rain and a stressed out homeowner. The first home had never been updated and we needed to sell. They helped me decide the best projects to tackle before putting it on the market. The first day on the market I had 9 contracts, all over asking price. Needless to say, everyone loved the final product! The second home is smaller and “the worst house on the block”. I called them before I put in a bid and they helped me with the whole process. They tackled electrical and plumbing issues, removed a fireplace to make the living area “open concept” and made it look wonderful! I couldn’t have done it without them and I love my new home! If I had a third house to remodel I’d call them but this one is so well done that won’t be anytime soon.”
