Tile Walls

Installing wall tile is basically the same procedure as installing floor tile. And it offers the same advantages: flexibility of design; a wide range of colors, materials and patterns; and if installed correctly, years of durability. Ceramic or porcelain tile makes an attractive backsplash behind sinks and stoves, or encasing a bathroom or shower. It’s a strong and easy-to-clean material that offers great decorative advantages for areas exposed to water, while resisting moisture intrusion and protecting the walls of your home.

Tile Flooring Options

When it comes to tile flooring, many homeowners are confused. They don’t know how to evaluate which of the myriad flooring choices fit their lifestyle and budget. Tile flooring is versatile enough to fit almost any situation. 

Today, most flooring surfaces are available in thin tile pieces, so choosing between ceramic, vinyl, cork, laminate, and slate tile flooring at your local hardware store can be dizzying indeed. Tile flooring simply refers to flooring options that are shaped into thin, square or rectangular wafers that can easily be applied to your floors. Tile flooring offers customers: variety,  ready availability, value,  durability.

And it can, depending on the tile you select, have drawbacks like:
installation challenges, high cost.

        In general, homeowners can select from tile flooring that is made of natural or synthetic materials. Natural tile flooring is made of products such as cork, slate, or ceramics (which are made from clay). To make this natural tile flooring, manufacturers gather the necessary materials, shape them, glaze or seal them and possibly heat them in kilns in order to produce durable tiles. In synthetic flooring manufacturing, manufacturers make tiles such as laminate or vinyl flooring by combining synthetic materials and processing them into tiles, often by pouring the material into molds.

      With today’s manufacturing and glazing techniques, the hardness and durability of tile flooring is quite high. Whether you select synthetic or natural material tile flooring, you can choose to have your tile floors as hard as possible for high traffic areas. Special enamel glazes can make tile floors durable enough for high-traffic and industrial areas. Even naturally soft materials can be made into tiles with a MOH (measure of hardness) ranking of between 0 and 5.
