There are Many Factors to Consider for Complete Installation
Tile can be a challenge depending on the construction of your home. A thorough analysis must be made to determine the application and products needed for a proper installation. Height issues must be accounted for as well as any need to remove existing layers of flooring. I take great care (and great notes) in planning a trouble-free installation with minimum inconvenience to you.
Should I Buy Porcelain Or Ceramic?
Most tiles today are porcelain. The main difference between the two is that porcelain is harder than ceramic and less likely to crack. Porcelain will absorb very little moisture so you can use it outside where frost can occur. Otherwise, the glaze and image is pretty much done the same way.
New Digital Imaging
This is really cool. They can now print on tiles with something like an inkjet printer. This gives the ability to capture an image of any exotic tile look on earth and re-create that look on a porcelain tile. Images of marble, slate, sandstone, and even hardwood can be accurately depicted on a tile surface.
New Improvements In Grout
Good grout can make a difference down the road. Finally there are some really nice grouts out there that are actually easy to use. My favorite is Tec Power Grout. Spreads smooth, easy to cleanup and is very stain and crack resistant.
