In our showroom there’s something for everyone, for every style.We have great selection of porcelain tiles,marble,glass,travertine and beautiful mosaic tiles. Porcelain tile is beautiful, durable and can be used inside and outside in kitchens, bathrooms, on backsplashes, on top of counters and for other various purposes. In high traffic areas in the home, consider porcelain tile. It’s long lasting and looks good, too. The cost may be a little higher than ceramic tile initially, but it’s a worthwhile investment considering the fact that it will last for years and most likely not have to be replaced.This material is fired at a high temperature, making a dense tile.
The density makes porcelain tile more resistant to moisture. There are two distinct types of porcelain tiles: glazed porcelain tile and unglazed porcelain tile. For indoor use, glazed tile is recommended due to the shiny and lustrous finish it offers. Also, glazed tile is a bit more resistant to household stains due to the layer of glaze over them, and very simple to clean and maintain for those areas that get a lot of use in the home. Unglazed tile is recommended for outside, because it is more slip-resistant in case of inclement weather, holds up to extreme temperatures well, and hold up to a lot of wear. They offer a lot more traction and could prevent accidents in potentially unsafe areas such as around the pool or patio where there could potentially be water or ice.
Pay close attention to the ratings test that measures porosity, which is the percentage of water absorbed.
A tile’s porosity is critical especially when choosing tile for kitchens and baths, since these areas need moisture-proof flooring.
Mosaic tile is combination of tiles that can be composed of ceramic, glass, metals or other elements mounted on a mesh backing for ease of installation. Mosaics take on a variety of patterns and can be cut to a desired size.They can be used for backsplashes in the kitchen and bathroom.Visit us and see more.
