Tile is a green flooring choice because it is made with natural materials like sand and clay and has no VoC’s. Many tiles come with glass glazes which helps them resist stains and scratches. Tiles are incredibly durable and very easy to clean. Most tile types come in a wide range of styles, so you can choose a natural look or go with bold bright patterns.

Types of Tiles
We make choosing tile easy in our showroom, and we can help you choose between stone, porcelain and ceramic options.
Porcelain tiles are a type of ceramic tile, but ceramic is not porcelain. Porcelain tile is baked at a higher temperature which makes it denser than ceramic. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are stylish and durable, as well as easy to maintain. Since porcelain is denser than ceramic, it can resist moisture better and is more durable under pressure. Although ceramic tile is more porous, it is also more versatile and can be installed on walls and floors. Our natural stone selection is unique. Since stone slabs are quarried from different locations, no two look alike. This means that natural stone tiles are feature different variances which create a unique look for your floor.
Tile goes on more than just your floors; you can also install it on your wall and as a backsplash. Wall and backsplash tile comes in several different forms and materials including glass, metal, and mosaic. Wall tile can be installed on your walls and even in showers. These light-weight tiles are easy to clean and care for, and are also a long-lasting option.
