WHY TILE?

We offer thousands of tile products in a variety of materials and finishes. Tile offers many benefits such as durability, easy maintenance, affordability, and unique design opportunities. We carry a variety of coordinating pieces ranging from bullnose, pencil liners, chair rails, to baseboards and thresholds.

When choosing your tile, factors such as level of foot traffic, primary users of the space, and regular exposure to water will affect the suggested application for each product.

While ceramic and porcelain are both man-made tiles produced from firing clay and other minerals, the main difference between ceramic and porcelain is that porcelain is more resistant to moisture, staining and water due to a blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals fired at a much higher degree temperature than ceramic tile.

Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are environmentally friendly because they are Low maintenance products, making them easy to clean with just water instead of harsh chemicals or cleaners that are often needed to treat or clean other flooring options.  They are fired in kilns to extremely high temperatures, eliminating volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from finished products. VOCs contribute to a wide variety of health problems, making ceramic and porcelain tiles a better option for maintaining/improving indoor air quality. Tile is inhospitable to dust mites, mold, germs and bacteria when sealed and maintained properly. Tile is often used to replace carpet for people with allergies and asthma. Tile is sustainable. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are some of the longest lasting flooring products on the market, making them longer lasting than carpet, vinyl, or laminate flooring when they’re properly installed and maintained.
