One of the beauties of ceramics is the durability of the material. Clay is hardened at high temperatures in kilns to make this product. This assures it will last in a variety of different climates, even outdoors. Many homes have outside walks and patios made with this material because it will last a long time. Rain, snow and wind do not have much effect on ceramics. The sun may eventually fade the coloring on ceramic tile, but it will not break it. This is one reason it has long been used in gardens for walkways and pots. Its durability over time has made it a worthy material for outside decor.
