Consider your tile material options

Porcelain and ceramic tile are excellent flooring materials, offering extensive durability thanks to a rigid, dense construction. These tiles are fired in hot kilns and then glazed to produce beautiful visuals that range from ultimately all-natural to brightly colored and can be cut into any shape and size you like. What’s more, they offer excellent water-resistant, making them perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and foyers, where dampness is often present.

Glass tile is excellent for flooring accents and best placed in areas where foot traffic will not be too severe. They also work very well as backsplash materials or wall accents and are available in nearly unlimited appearance options. They absorb nothing, making them extremely resistant to stains and the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria.

We can't forget metal or stone tile when offering flooring options. These materials are not only incredibly durable and stunning, but they also provide a lifespan that can easily exceed 100 years with proper care and maintenance. These are perfect over radiant heating, and you can even use area rugs and runners for a splash of warmth and softness here and there. If you’d like to know more about these and other flooring options available in this product line, be sure and visit us soon.
