Tile is a great material to consider for a number of reasons. If you are a landlord or property manager, installing tile can make your rental property more desirable which makes it easier to bring in a revenue stream from your property. For homeowners looking for remodeling options, tile can substantially increase the appearance, durability, and atmosphere in a home, and the fact that resale value increased certainly helps.
The benefits of tile are many, but one of our favorites is the fact that tile is so durable. When the tile is installed by experienced tile contractors, the result is often a tile surface that will last as long as the house will. Tile comes in a number of different materials including, ceramic, porcelain, granite, marble, limestone, and slate. Each one of these is tough enough to withstand heavy use in virtually every part of the home
When it comes time to tileset for your tiling project, you’ll need to know which materials are best for particular applications. Options like slate and granite are perfect choices for floors and countertops thanks to their high degree of durability and design choices. They are not easily scratched and do not wear down easily. Marble and limestone are good choices for decorative applications like walls and stairs but should be avoided in areas that see a lot of moisture due to the porous nature of the materials.
The most common tile material is ceramic. It can be porcelain and non-porcelain and can take on many different looks and textures making it perfect for just about any tile setting application.
