Porcelain vs. Ceramic Tile
When it comes to choosing the right type of tile for your home, knowing your tile options is important. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are made with the same materials like clay and sand, but because porcelain is heated at a higher temperature it is denser and therefore more resistant to heat and moisture. Both tile types come in a wide variety of colors, styles, patterns and more. Ceramic tile is lightweight and budget friendly. You’ll commonly see either porcelain or ceramic tiles installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Porcelain takes your installation opportunities further by being able to be installed outside of your home as a patio or a walkway.
Our flooring professionals can help you pick out the perfect tile for your space.
Natural Stone Floor Tile
What makes natural stone tile unique is its ability to be installed inside and outside of the home. Another unique feature of stone tile is that it is quarried from different locations, so no two tiles look exactly the same. When properly sealed stone tile is waterproof and stain resistant. Natural stone tiles are incredibly durable and can be easily cleaned and taken care of.
