Why Choose Tile

Ceramic tile is a natural product made up of clay, minerals, and water. Glazed ceramic tile has a ceramic coating applied to the tile body which gives the tile its color and finish. Tile is durable, easy to care for, and is a low-maintenance material. Ceramic tiles are extremely resistant to scratching and are environmentally friendly. While being both beautiful and versatile, tile also lends itself to being both fire and water resistant.

Tile By Room

The beautiful decorative tile you might put on your kitchen backsplash may not be recommended for installation on your floor. Most manufacturers have a rating system that is based on the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The most common system rates ceramic tile abrasion resistance, or the overall durability of the tile.

Tile By Styles

Ceramic tile is manufactured in sizes ranging from 1” to 24” squares. Ceramic tile is normally boxed and priced by the square foot, regardless of the size of the individual tile itself. Tile size is relative and is usually referred to by its nominal size, not its actual size. During the firing process, ceramic tile will shrink by about 10%. When considering what size tile would be appropriate for your given space, start by determining the size of the room. Scale plays as important role in creating a room’s overall balance.
