What to Look for When Selecting a Tile

Natural stone is a fabulous compliment to your home décor. 

Better quality tiles have high bisque density and a strong wear layer. When shopping for tile, ask about the products’ “PEI” wear ratings for comparison. The “PEI rating” system indicates the tested level of traffic a tile can withstand. This is very helpful when deciding which tile to buy. The higher the PEI rating the more durable the tile will be. For instance, a PEI group five rating indicates a tile is suitable for heavy commercial use.  Did you know that many tiles can be used for outdoor purposes such as pool decks, patios and walkways? But make sure to look for product that is rated as frost proof.  Conversely, a PEI group one rating means the tile is best left for washrooms where bare or stocking feet are most common. Check the label on any ceramic sample or speak to a qualified floor covering salesperson to find and fully understand the PEI system.  

Glass tile is a hot current trend. It is especially appealing when blended with ceramic and stone tiles in a mosaic or patterned format.  Glass tile comes in many sizes and shapes, and is a wonderful compliment to other materials. Stunning glass kitchen backsplashes, like Casa Roma Glass Stone, are showpieces for any kitchen. While not ideal for flooring in high traffic areas, glass tile can be used on almost every wall in your home, and is especially striking in showers and bathrooms.

Tile manufacturing technology has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years toward delivering almost any esthetic look one might desire. High definition ink jet technology and contour stamping can achieve the look and feel of natural products. You will be hard pressed to tell the difference. Want a hardwood look? Tile can do that, too. Even linen and leather looks can be achieved with ceramic tile.  

The team is always more than willing to take the time to help you find exactly what you are looking for that fits your lifestyle needs. Dogs, kids, allergies, and personal style are all factors to consider before you even choose the color, finish, or type of floor covering.
