Tile For Your Home

A unique option for your home that can provide a one-of-a-kind view and feel is tile flooring. There are many different types of tile to consider when looking into this option.  Here at Direct Carpet One Floor & Home, we offer Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles for your home! They all have characteristics that separate them.

Ceramic Tiles

Clay, sand, and other natural materials are mixed together to create ceramic tiles. From there, ceramic tiles are molded to create their frame. The step of firing allows the ceramic tile to have a durable surface that will last for years.

From there, ceramic tiles are usually glazed to give the tile an exclusive color. The glazing treatment also protects the tile from any sort of wear. Depending on where the ceramic tile is ultimately ends up will determine the type of glazing process it receives.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tiles are capable of being placed both indoors and outdoors because of its resistant nature. Porcelain tiles have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5%. Finer clays make up this tile as it comes from a mixture of quartz and feldspar.

Stone Tiles

Stone tiles are frequently made from marble, granite, travertine, and slate. Each stone has unique features that separate them from each other. Stone tiles are also incredibly durable and work well in heavy traffic areas.
