Types of Tile
New types of tile are constantly turning up, and modern innovation continues to give us new varieties of tile to contemplate. Some things, however, have remained unchanged and most of the tile you’ll encounter will be made out of ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Are you struggling to pick a tile that’s perfect for your home or business? Here are just a few things to consider when picking out your new tile:
Ceramic tiles are made to last indefinitely. Made out of clay and kiln-fired, ceramic will endure heavy and repeated foot traffic.
Porcelain tiles are actually a type of ceramic that’s fired at a hotter temperature, resulting in a denser product. Porcelain tile works great for outdoor gathering spots since it can hold up to inclement weather as well as heavy footsteps.
Stone tiles, since they come from the natural world, are a great option for your favorite outdoor spaces but also work well in our mudroom. Granite, slate, marble, and travertine are among the materials used to create these tiles.
