  • Porcelain Tile: This type of tiling promotes an artful ambiance in your home.  Porcelain possesses a soothing charm, yet displays vivid character.  Porcelain exudes delicacy while remaining durable and strong. 
  • Ceramic Tile: Probably the most practical option available, ceramic tile affords you the option of natural elegance.  Ceramics are made from natural, rich clay buried within the earth that is then molded and fired into tile form.  Ceramic tiles exude elegance and provide lively tones and captivating textures in your home.
  • Glass Mosaics: The creative, multi-colored schemes of glass tiling can brighten up your bathroom or kitchen.  The vibrant colors and tones in the mosaic possess a beauty that’s sure to impress any of your guest’s decorative tastes.

  • Slate Tile: This type of tiling creates an all-natural atmosphere in your home or office.  It is made from thin layers of clay, dried mud, and volcanic ash.  These tiles are durable enough to be used some roofing projects but are also stylish enough to be seen in many peoples’ bathrooms. 
  • Stone Tile: The finest marble or granite tiling can provide your home with the ultimate class.  Available in many different sizes, colors, textures, and patterns, stone tile flooring is very versatile.  Stone tiles make for perfect flooring for any room in the house and are great for lining kitchen and bathroom walls.
