Ceramic & Porcelain Tile in Mesa, AZ
Tile flooring is always on trend. Popular for its elegance and utility throughout the home, decorating not only kitchens & bathrooms but entryways, bedrooms, mudrooms, basements, outdoor areas, offices, and commercial spaces.
Ceramic & porcelain tile are molded from natural clay, painted or glazed to create practically any color or pattern you can imagine.
Non-porcelain ceramic tile is made from a combination of white, red and brown clay, sometimes mixed with other minerals and pressed under extreme heat & pressure. Porcelain tile contains up to 50% feldspar, a type of crystal which, when heated & pressurized, forms a glasslike material, giving porcelain extreme hardness & durability.
Glazed tile is fired a second time to give the clay a glassy coating & color variations on the surface, plus increased resistance to stains, scratches & moisture.
Natural Stone Tile
Natural stone tile is produced from minerals including granite, marble, limestone, travertine, onyx, slate and sandstone.
- Granite: Dense volcanic rock with distinctive speckles. Impervious to scratching & excellent for high-traffic areas such as kitchens. Variations of granite offer unique colors & patterns.
- Marble: Metamorphic stone known for its elegance. On the porous side, so recommended for decorative use rather than performance.
- Limestone: Sedimentary rock with an earthy look. Less dense than other stone & more susceptible to damage, but porous & able to be stained a variety of colors.
- Slate: Incredibly dense, incredibly durable option that comes in many darker tones. An excellent choice for high-traffic areas.
