If you need a floor that is durable and long-lasting, then consider tile flooring. Tile is made with natural materials and is resistant to moisture and heat. Tile is also an allergy friendly option because there is nowhere for dust to be trapped.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
What are the Different Types of Tile?
We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Ceramic tile is one of the most popular options because if its range of styles and affordability. Ceramic tile is made of sand and clay and other materials. They are available in sever vibrant colors. There are even options that have patterns. Porcelain tile is made from the same materials as ceramic, but because porcelain is heated at a higher temperature it is denser and more resistant to moisture and heat. Porcelain also comes in a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from. Stone tile is a natural option. What makes stone tile so unique is that slabs are not always quarried from the same location so no two tiles will look alike.
Depending on the type of tile you choose you can install it anywhere inside and outside of your home. Floor tiles can mainly be used on floors, but some can also be used on walls like ceramic tile. Wall tile can only be installed on walls because it is not dense enough to handle foot traffic and could crack under pressure. Other places you can install tile include bathrooms, showers, kitchens, on your walls, and in basements.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
