What are the effects of sudden ambient temperature and humidity changes (cold climate in winter) on interior ceramic tile?

As stated in the FAQ, ceramic tile is very tolerant to temperature extremes. The effects are that ceramic tile can expand and contract, to some degree, from exposure to temperature and moisture changes. The more absorbing the ceramic tile the more it will be affected. It is never good to have extremely rapid changes in temperature or in moisture, as we know how glass can crack with rapid temperature changes. As long as you have proper placement of movement (expansion) joints in the tiled areas and you have a good quality installation, the temperature and humidity changes in seasonal changes or from warming a cold house should not affect the ceramic tile. I hope this helps!
