Varieties of tile and stone exist to suit every taste and budget. A sense of luxury, culture and character is achieved with the use of tile and stone. The purely functional is transformed into the beautiful, using plain, glossy, or patterned porcelain, ceramic, glass, metal, limestone and dozens of other styles.

Ceramic Tile

Long wearing, ceramic tile will not fade or discolor. It is a man-made, kiln fired clay product. The varied colors, textures and designs of ceramic tile provide unlimited design options, and the durable glaze resists stains and scratches. It is often used as a wall tile since it is lighter in weight than porcelain and is available in many sizes and high gloss glazes.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain is a superior man-made product that is tough and long lasting. It is fired at a higher temperature than ceramic, which results in a denser product with less than 0.5% water absorption. The body is usually a white clay material which may be through body (color goes all the way through) or glazed (color is fired on the surface). It is resistant to chipping and some porcelains are freeze/ thaw resistant. It can be used on floors, walls and countertops and is available in a multitude of colors, sizes and finishes.

Quartz Composite

Quartz composite is a man-made material that is sold in 2cm or 3cm slabs for fabrication as countertops and other uses. It is a composite of natural quartz, pigments, and polymer resin that results in a solid, non-porous surface that resists scratches, stains, heat and water. It is increasing in popularity because it is durable, low maintenance, and long lasting.
