Types of Tile

Our tile selection includes three types of tile: porcelain, ceramic and stone.

The most common residential tiles are porcelain and ceramic. These two types of tile are made from the same materials including clay and sand, but porcelain is denser. Porcelain is also durable because it is baked at a higher temperature. This means it is better for outdoor spaces and places where scratching and wear are common. Ceramic tiles are less dense than porcelain, which means they are more lightweight. Both porcelain and ceramic tiles come in a variety of colors, sizes and styles. Stone tiles are made from a natural stone quarry. Because of this, no two stone tiles will look the same. Stone tiles are unique and will last for years to come when properly maintained.
