Tile flooring installation FAQs

Tile flooring could be an excellent choice for your home. It's stylish, affordable, durable, easy to clean, and lasts decades.??

When shopping for flooring, you?re sure to have questions. Here are some answers.

FAQ #1: Are porcelain and ceramic tile the same?

No. Porcelain is a ceramic type that behaves much differently than others. It's excellent for high-traffic rooms like the kitchen.

It's made of non-absorbent clay, sand, and glass and fired at higher temperatures. Porcelain tile is heavy and dense. It can be used indoors and out.

FAQ #2: Is porcelain stylish?

When you enter our tile store in Loveland, CO, you'll see glazed porcelain products like Contessa Dama Chamfered, a marble look, by Emser Tile.?

Also, check out: Botanica Wood Look Porcelain Tile by MSI.?

FAQ #3: Does it matter what tile I use for my installation?

Yes, every tile has a different level of strength and absorbency. This determines how and where it can be used.

Describe your project to the staff. Look at the label to examine the category; most for residential use are Cat-3.??

Anything lower is for low or no traffic. Choose wisely, as the right or wrong one impacts a project.

FAQ #4: Does ceramic tile crack?

It's not likely, but using the right one is essential. For example, if you choose a wall tile in a heavily trafficked room, like the kitchen, it won't last as long.

Proper tile flooring installation is a must. Also, pay attention to maintenance, avoiding abrasive tools and harsh cleaners.
