Tile Flooring

  • Ceramic: Ceramic Tile is a mixture of clays and other natural materials that are mined from the earth, shaped and fired at high temperatures. Traditional ceramic tile can be naturally-colored and left unglazed, like terra cotta, or they can feature colored or highly designed surfaces which can be glazed (finished with a glass surface) from matte to high gloss.


  • Porcelain: Porcelain Tiles are also ceramic tiles, but are composed of finer clays and fired at much higher temperatures. That process makes porcelain tile more homogenous (can have a through-body coloration, so scratches or dings are less obvious), much stronger and less prone to moisture and stain absorption. For those reasons, porcelain can be suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations.


  • Natural Stone: Natural Stone tiles consist of any product quarried from the earth and can be categorized into Marbles, Granites, Limestones, Travertines, Slates, Quartzites and various other products. Each type of Natural Stone will vary from piece to piece in regards to color, surface texture, edge treatments, durability and maintenance.
    •    
    • Marble is Metamorphic stone formed millions of years ago due to the action of extreme heat and pressure. Marble is simply "changed" limestone that, due to the heat and pressure, has crystallized, melted and re-cooled. Coloring is extremely varied and often accompanied with lots of veining and other mineral deposits.
    •    
    • Granite is Igneous stones formed millions of years ago under conditions of extreme heat. Hard and crystalline in nature, granite is most often seen polished.
    •    
    • Limestones is Sedimentary stone formed millions of years ago due to the action of water and extreme pressure. Fossilized seashells and other sea life and treasures are often found in limestone. Primarily light beige and tan in coloring.
    •    
    • Travertines is a Sedimentary stone formed millions of years ago due to the action of water and heat. Water and gases percolating through the stone give travertine its characteristic holes.
    •    
    • Slates is a metamorphic stone formed millions of years ago and derived from sedimentary rock. Slate is normally split (cleft) rather than cut with a saw as other stones are. Coloring can vary widely and wildly. Typically, slate is not "finished", as the natural cleft surface is its focal point and source of interest and beauty.
    •    
    • Quartzites is a rock formed from the metamorphism of quartz sandstone consisting essentially of quartz in interlocking grains.
    •    
    • Tumbled is a Stone finish achieved by putting the stones in a machine that "tumbles" the stones around together causing an uneven rough surface and edges. This finish has a rustic appeal.
  • Glass: tiles can be either cast glass, layered or laminated glass, fused glass or cut glass- each with its own unique appearance and translucency.
    •    
    • Cast Glass is solid product that consists of a hot liquid that is poured and then cooled. The color is either applied to the back of the tile, or within the glass itself.
    •    
    • Layered or Laminated Glass is a layered or laminated product that literally "sandwiches" different pieces of glass together. It is then heated, or fused together to create one unit.
    •    
    • Cut Glass is a large piece of glass cut into smaller pieces, similar to mosaics.
    •    
    • Fused Glass is Similar to layered glass, whereas different pieces are fused together to create one piece, however fused glass is more artistic and can utilize different shapes of glass to create one piece (for example a triangular piece fused to a square piece).
  • Metal:tiles are referred to as anything that is solid metal, a metal laminate, a metallic glaze, a metal and resin composite or simply a tile that gives an illusion of metal with a lustrous finish.


  • Resin:tiles consist of either stone or cement particles mixed with an epoxy or other chemical to increase durability and allow for limitless options in shape and texture.


  • Vinyl Composition Tile: is a finished flooring material used primarily in commercial and institutional applications. Vinyl tiles are composed of colored vinyl chips formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses (1/8" is most common) by heat and pressure and cut into 12" squares. Tiles are applied to a smooth, leveled sub-floor using a specially formulated vinyl adhesive that remains tacky but does not completely dry. Once in place, tiles are typically waxed and buffed using materials and equipment specially formulated for this application. Vinyl tile is favored over other kinds of flooring materials in high-traffic areas because of its low cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. Vinyl tiles have high resilience to abrasion and impact damage and can be repeatedly refinished with chemical strippers and mechanical buffing equipment. If properly installed, tiles can be easily removed and replaced when damaged. Tiles are available in a variety of colors from several major flooring manufacturers. Some manufacturers have created vinyl tiles that very closely resemble wood, stone, terrazzo, and concrete. Tiles can easily be cut and assembled into colorful and decorative patterns.
