What Are Tiles Made Out Of?

Floor tiles are available in a wide variety of materials, and typically fall into 5 main categories:

  • Ceramic: made of clay and minerals that are mixed with water and then fired, ceramic tiles can be glazed or unglazed.
  • Porcelain: Made of a ceramic base with added feldspar, porcelain tiles can also be glazed or unglazed.
  • Stone: Granite, marble, limestone, travertine, or slate are cut to your required size
  • Glass: Perfect for kitchen or bathroom back splashes
  • Metal: Ideal for adding stylistic flair to any room.

Why Tile?

In addition to adding a stylish pop of colour and refined elegance to every room, tile offers a wide range of benefits to property owners, including:

Durable

Unlike other flooring options, tile is extremely durable and designed to withstand demands that certain materials cannot. This includes heavy foot traffic, moisture, homes with pets, and more. Best of all, for those looking to avoid cold floors during the winter, tiles can be installed over radiant heating.

Easy To Maintain

Tile floors require very little effort to maintain. Dirt, stains, and liquids rest on the surface, making it easy to sweep or mop away. To keep your floors looking fresh all year round, we recommend weekly upkeep and the occasional deep clean to handle any build up.

Water Resistant

One the major perks of tile flooring is their resistance to water and moisture. This makes them ideal for use in kitchens, basements, and other areas that may be more prone to increased liquid presence.

Eco-Friendly

Tile is made out of raw materials that are often combined with other recycled materials to form each piece.

Added Property Value

Tile can be a cost-effective way to replace tired flooring with new materials that will last in the long term. Update tired floors and increase the aesthetic of your home with ease!
