What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?

We are often asked this question… ceramic and porcelain tiles are both made from a sandy material that when fired, hardens … porcelain is made from a finer sand substance that results in a harder tile.

What kind of stone do you carry?

We have a wide variety of natural stone tile including travertine, granite, marble, limestone and onyx.  And they can be cleft, gauged, honed, polished and tumbled – there is a stone look for every project!  And we also sell supplies to keep your stone looking beautiful including Stone Enhancer (brings out stone’s natural colors), Miracle Impregnator or Porous Plus (seals the stone making it impervious to moisture and other stains)  grout haze cleaner and more!

Will one tile crack more easily than another?

While there are differences in the hardness of tiles (this scale is called the PEI scale – from 1 to 5, PEI 5 being the hardest), the key item that causes tiles to crack is the subfloor underneath.  If there are cracks or unevenness in the subfloor, as you walk across that section, the tiles will essentially flex over that area and crack.  It is extremely important to invest in a solid and even subfloor to ensure the beauty and life of your tile floor.

How can I tell how my entire floor will look with the tile I have selected?

It is often difficult to visualize how a tile will look over a larger area.  Some have much more variation than others meaning that a single  “color” could have a wide variety of light and dark looks from one tile to another, and a lot of difference in coloration.  Some styles are very uniform in color.  Make sure you understand how much variation each style has… if you have questions, please make sure to ask for samples – and ask for 3 -4 tiles of the style you are considering so that you can properly see the variation that exists.
