Ceramics, such as floor and wall tiles, are typically brittle; drill them too aggressively, and they crack. Additionally, many bathroom or kitchen tiles have a shiny glazed surface, making it easy for the drill bit to slip as you try to drive it in. This results in scratching which ruins the tile.
What’s more, fashion trends in home decoration and bathroom designs see the increased installations of bigger and more expensive tiles. This means the ceramic used is harder, thicker, and therefore, tougher to drill. So how can you drill ceramic wall tiles without cracking them? This is where the EXPERT HardCeramic drill bit becomes invaluable.
Additionally, it’s important to turn off any hammer setting your drill may have and make sure it is lined up to go straight through the tile – drilling at an angle will cause cracks and breaks.
