We offer three main types of tiles: ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and stone tile. Each type of tile offers different benefits and is not all made the same. While ceramic and porcelain tiles are two of the most popular tile options, they are not the only type of tile. Learn more about the types of tile we carry:
Ceramic tile is made of clays that are fired extra hot. This glazed tile is easy to clean, durable, and can mimic natural wood and stone. Consider a textured ceramic tile if you have pets or kids. There are endless patterns and finishes to consider.
Porcelain tile is a denser variety of ceramic. Because of its enduring strength, porcelain is famous in commercial settings and in bathrooms. It resists significant moisture and comes in endless styles. Choose porcelain tile that mimics hardwood or washed cement; trendy patterns are available.
Stone tile is made from organic minerals like granite and marble. It’s perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, entryways, and outdoor paces. No two stones are alike, so choosing stone tile means your new installation will be distinctively yours. Stone tile adds value to your home and will last for generations.
Wood-look tile flooring is a popular option for those looking for the look of natural wood floors but wants a stronger, more easily maintained flooring type. Porcelain or tile that looks like hardwood merges coveted style with the versatility and durability of tile. Wood-look tile comes in planks and is textured to look like natural wood. It takes away from the time-consuming maintenance of hardwood and is resistant to scratches and stains. Install wood-look tile flooring in your home’s kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, mudroom, and other moisture-prone areas.
Tiles are available at different performance levels. Some tiles are better suited for certain projects than others. For example, we have commercial-grade tile collections, while others are best for backsplashes or shower spaces. In high-moisture environments, you’ll want to choose a dense tile that will not absorb or retain water easily. You may want to choose a glazed tile for high-traffic areas that has been specially textured for enhanced slip resistance.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately, we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the result is exactly what you always dreamed of. Tile is most popular in high-moisture spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, basements, laundry rooms, and more. It’s commonly used for both flooring and walls, including backsplashes.
