Highly durable and well suited for high traffic areas, porcelain tiles are environmentally friendly, easy to clean, stain resistant and resilient to fading. Porcelain tiles are available in a wide variety of colours, finishes and patterns to complement any environment and style.
Although porcelain tile is harder to install than other flooring alternatives, it is an investment that generally increases the value of your home.
Stone remains one of the most beautiful, classy and natural solutions for flooring. Adding value through timeless designs that rarely go out of style, stone has an innate beauty that will last the life of a building and beyond.
Stone tiles are an excellent choice for wet areas where water resistance and anti-slip surfaces are needed. Durable and easily cleaned, stone flooring is also receptive to passive heating and can radiate heat after the sun goes down. Popular stone flooring options include:
Marble: With delicate veins, spiral patterns and eye-catching colours, this stone boasts a remarkable beauty that lends an immediate elegance and distinction to any home or a commercial space. Marble tiles will last virtually forever when properly installed and maintained.
Traditional marble tiles are polished to a reflective finish complementary to entryways, foyers, bathrooms and fireplaces. Tumbled marble tiles are buffed for a more natural looking, lighter finish and come in large sizes that work particularly well in kitchens, dining rooms and larger areas.
Granite: Characterized by versatility, durability, longevity and natural beauty, granite is the hardest and most common stone surface used today.
Limestone: A soft ocean-formed stone that is very gentle on bare feet, limestone has a uniquely luxurious look and feel that has made it a long-time favourite of architects and designers.
Slate: Simple and striking, slate is a versatile stone capable of looking either elegant or rustic depending on your décor.
Travertine: This elite, durable limestone is formed by mineral deposits from hot springs or limestone caves, and it’s cut from quarries around the world. The stone features classic, neutral colors and unique natural patterns that can give your kitchen, bathroom or other spaces an air of sophistication and elegance.
Of the above solutions, marble and granite are more porous and require periodic sealing and care. However, our customers generally agree that the beauty and value they add to your home is usually worth any effort required to maintain them.
Casa Roma & San Marco Porcelain Tile
Casa Roma & San Marco Tile;
Porcelain tile is a tile that is generally made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which result in a tile that is dense, impervious, fine grained and smooth. Porcelain tiles usually have a much lower water absorption rate (less than 0.5%) than non-porcelain tiles making them frost resistant or frost-proof. Glazed porcelain tiles are much harder and more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for any application from light traffic to the heaviest residential and commercial traffic.
Durability: Porcelain tile is unparalleled in the floor covering industry in its durability. If the right product is chosen and maintained properly, it could easily last the lifetime of the home
Hygienic: The face of ceramic tile will not retain liquids nor will it absorb smoke, fumes or odors. These properties provide for excellent hygiene.
Scratch and Scuff Resistant: While no surface is scratch-proof, porcelain tile resists scratches, scuffs and indentations better than any other floor covering
Environmentally Friendly: Porcelain tile body is 100% natural
