Ceramic & Porcelain Tile
Ceramic Tile - Advantages to this type of flooring are plentiful. We just love this typle of flooring. It adds class to any area. So why should you invest in Ceramics:
Durablility: Ceramic flooring is extremely tough and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for 10 - 20 years and longer if well maintained. If a single tile does crack due to a severe impact, the process of replacing that tile is relatively simple.
Easy Maintenance: Ceramic flooring is fairly easy to care for. Dirt, stains, and liquids all rest on the surface, allowing you to easily wipe or mop them away. Regular maintenance just consists of sweeping or vacuuming with a soft brush attachment to keep the floor free of dirt and loose debris. If set in stains do occur you can use most heavy duty cleaners without having to worry about damaging the material.
Design Options: Modern manufacturing techniques allow ceramic producers to make materials which can be printed in numerous ways. Solid tiles can be mixed and matched in patterns or accented with designs or motifs. The tiles themselves can be cut and shaped into triangles, rectangles, and planks. Whatever your imagination desires.
Pricing: Most tiles will cost $5 - $10 per square foot, with bargain basement and premium materials edging those numbers to greater extremes. This makes it a moderately expensive material priced higher than carpet and lower than hardwood. Depending on where it is installed and how it looks a ceramic floor will add long term value to a property.
Allergen Concerns: Ceramic tiles have a hard, solid surface, that does not tend to attract dirt, dust, pollen, or other allergens. When these small debris particles do land on a ceramic floor, they stand out against the surface, making it easy to wipe them away with a mop or sponge. This helps to keep the air free of irritating materials that can be harmful to asthma sufferers.
