Ceramic Tile is available in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and finishes. Ceramic has become a popular choice in flooring due to the endless options in design and its low maintenance care. It is great for anyone with allergies and is environmentally friendly.

Ceramic

is a mixture of clays and minerals that has been shaped, pressed, then fired at temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees (F), resulting in a hard surface. The protective glaze that is applied before firing gives the ceramic tile added color and finish and makes it resistant to stains, odors, bacteria, and scratches.

Porcelain

Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic made of a very fine mixture of clays and minerals similar to those found in fine dinnerware. These special clays allow porcelain tile to be fired at temperatures even higher than ceramic tile, typically exceeding 2,400 degrees (F). The higher temperature results in a very dense tile. And the denser a tile, the better it resists moisture.

Natural Stone

Natural Stone consists of products like Slate, Travertine, Marble, Limestone, Granite, and Onyx. Each piece has a unique look that brings the beauty of the natural elements into your home. Natural Stone can vary greatly in color and does not have a protective glaze, so a sealant is recommended to seal and protect the stone.
