Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.

Types of Tile

When choosing from our tile options, keep in mind the three different types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic and porcelain are two of the most popular tile options. Ceramic tile is light weight and comes in several colors and styles. Porcelain is a denser tile and is more water resistant than ceramic. It can also stand up to heavy foot traffic and handle heavy appliances.

Stone is a natural option. Stone tile is cut from slabs and quarried from different locations, so not all slabs are alike, which provides you the option to have a truly unique floor in your home. Stone may come at a higher price, but with the right sealer it will last a long time.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

For the most part, tile can be installed anywhere in the home. Porcelain and stone are durable and can be installed outside. Any tile option works well for your floors, but when it comes to tile on your walls, you want to choose either a ceramic option or a tile that is specifically meant for walls.

Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We will work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we ensure the end result will be exactly what you had in mind.
