Tile and Stone Types
Ceramic: Ceramic tile is used interchangeably with porcelain. Technically, both traditional and porcelain tiles are ceramics made from clay and other minerals and are fired at high temperatures.
Porcelain: Porcelain tiles are a form of ceramic but they are fired at much higher temperatures. Porcelain is dense and highly moisture resistant which makes it a good choice for bathroom and outdoors.
Glass: Glass tiles range from opaque to opalescent. They’re available in broad sizes, shapes, textures, designs and finishes. They are excellent for anything from accents to full-wall mosaic treatments.
Granite: Granite is a hard, durable natural stone that comes in many colors. Granite can be used on floors, walls and counters.
Marble: Marble flooring is making a comeback! With its strength and durability, and over five-hundred varieties available, the possibilities are virtually limitless.
