Tile, Ceramic Tile Installation
Tile flooring is simply beautiful and adds a special touch to any area of your home. Ceramic tile is made of clay and shale that has been baked and hardened in a kiln. Usually found with a glazed surface, they are a unique floor that can come in a wide range of colors and style. We are proud to offer both ceramic and porcelain tile flooring, ranging from 12" to 18" tiles.
There are so many advantages to tile flooring, no matter which kind you choose:
- Excellent for allergy sufferers – no mold, dander or smoke can penetrate it
- Low maintenance – no buffing or waxing, just a simple cleaning will make it like new
- Resistant to stains, water seepage and scratches/damage – perfect for high traffic areas
- Extremely durable
- Keeps its form in extreme temperatures
- Less costly than stone
The three highest concerns with tile flooring that customers tell us are the high cost, warmth, and ease of cleanup. Although it isn't the easiest do-it-yourself install or the cheapest to purchase, you have to take into account that tile will outlast just about any carpet or vinyl placed in a normal residential setting. As for the warmth factor, a lot of today's homes are being built with in-floor heating systems. Also, there are in-floor mats that can be purchased for existing home projects. Lastly, make sure that your grout is sealed and simply sweep and lightly mop your floor periodically to keep it clean.
