Ceramic, Porcelain & Glass Tile Flooring Systems

 

Tile is a product that beautifies your home, enhances design and decor, meets your specific comfort, performance and budget needs, is easy to care for, and stands the test of time. Ceramic & porcelain tile have been around for centuries, and with today's technology manufacturers have created new design and application possibilities that were not available a decade ago. If you have never lived with ceramic or porcelain tile before or if it has been a long time since you have done so, you will be amazed at the wide selection of colors, sizes, shapes and new textures that are now available. The low cost of maintenance, and high durability, are just two reasons why ceramic & porcelain tile floors are the leading choice of home & building owners.

 

Whether your project is flooring, counter tops, backsplashes or tub & shower surrounds, we have the products to make your dream project a reality.

 Ceramic Ceramic tiles are mixtures of clay composites mined from the earth and fired in a kiln. They come in different grades that are specified for durability and practicality. Some are glazed and slippery and not suitable for wet areas such as kitchen and baths, yet others are unglazed and porous, thus better for wet areas.  
 Porcelain Porcelain tiles are a variation of ceramic tile but are much harder because it is made of porcelain clays. It's fired at higher temperatures than ceramic tile and has a hard finish density that is not susceptible to stains or moisture. Porcelain works well in high traffic and wet areas. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
 Glazed Glazed Ceramic & Porcelain tiles are coated with glass forming materials and ceramic stains. Typically they have a matte, semi gloss or high gloss finish. They can offer better stain and moisture resistance than unglazed tile. High gloss finished tile can be more slippery and scratches can become more visible while matte, or textured, finishes help with traction. Scratches and dirt are less visible.
 Glass Glass tiles can be either glass, layered or laminated glass, fused glass or cut glass. Each with it's own unique appearance and translucency. Typical applicatiosns for glass tiles are kitchen backsplashes or tub & shower surrounds.
 Metal Metal tiles are referred to as anything that is solid metal, a metal laminate, a metallic glaze, a metal & resin composite or simply a tile that gives an illusion of metal with a lustrous finish. Metal tiles are commonly used as wall tile in kitchens and bathrooms.
