Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is made from fired, glazed clays. This results in a tile that’s extremely dense and resilient, making it popular with pet lovers and parents of young children.

Porcelain Tile

An even sturdier variety of ceramic is porcelain tile. Fired hotter than its predecessor, porcelain tile is fully water resistant. For this reason, it’s a nice choice for the poolside, in laundry rooms, or as a bathroom backsplash.

Stone Tile

Made by Mother Nature, stone tile is cut out of natural minerals like slate, quartz, or granite. It looks great in an entryway, and is popular both indoors and outdoors. Stone is especially alluring since no two pieces of stone are alike, allowing for a truly unique asset.
