Tile is a durable and versatile flooring solution, and it also can be installed on your walls and outside as a patio or walkway. Commonly tiles are installed in bathrooms and kitchens, as well as laundry rooms and mudrooms. Before your installation begins, our installers will do a moisture test in areas with moisture and humidity to determine what type of tile would be right for that space. We always recommend talking to one of our flooring experts about what tile is best for places with a lot of humidity and moisture.
Porcelain tiles are best for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they are dense and have a low absorption rate and will not expand due to contact with moisture. Tiles are normally dry-laid first to make sure they are correctly sized to the room, cut if needed, and then adhered to the floor with tile cement and grouted.
Our tile brands include Daltile, Shaw, UBC, Arley, and MSI.
Tile Installation Options
Tile can be installed on your bathrooms floors as well as walls and custom shower stalls. Porcelain tiles are a good option for bathrooms because they feature resistance to heat, moisture, and can be slip resistant. For bathrooms there are different types of tiles, choosing a textured tile is a good idea because they are more slip resistant, and bathroom floors tend to be slippery when wet.
Kitchen floor tile is popular because it can stand up to a lot of foot traffic, and is easy to clean when spills or accidents happen. Choosing to install wall tile or backsplash tile not only adds a focal point in your kitchen, but it also serves as a protective barrier between your wall and accidental food splatter and heat from appliances.
