Flooring - Tile & Wood Floors
Ceramic tile includes a wide variety of clay products fired into thin units which are set in beds of mortar or mastic with the joints between tiles grouted. Varieties include quarry tile, porcelain tile, terracotta tile, and others. Many different natural stones are cut into a variety of sizes, shapes, and thicknesses for use as flooring.
History's most famous buildings made extensive use of natural flooring materials that were elegant, wear resistant and withstood the test of time. Natural stone and ceramic floor tiles deliver unparalleled performance. They always look great and never go out of style. Many of these materials are moisture resistant and ideal for entryways, kitchens, bathrooms and anywhere liquids are present.
Many different species of wood are fabricated into wood flooring in two primary forms: plank and parquet. Hardwoods are typically much more durable than softwoods. Reclaimed lumber has a unique appearance and is used in green (environmentally responsible) building.
Real wood, solid wood, hardwood or simply wooden flooring (as it is also known) is the finest flooring solution that you can choose for your home.
As the name suggests, solid wood flooring doesn’t just look authentic, it is authentic. Each plank is milled from a single piece of timber, so there are no veneers used; just one piece of wood. These floors were originally used for additional support within a building, but – while we now favour their aesthetics over their practical values – the reward for choosing solid wood flooring is more than just superficial.
