Natural stone tiles can be used for floors, walls & counters in almost any room or commercial space. Each type has its own unique characteristics, strengths & weaknesses.
Ceramic – long-wearing, dent, scratch & stain-resistance. Economical & a favorite for kitchens, baths, basements, porches
Porcelain – fine-grained and smoother than ceramic & more wear & damage resistant. Good for high-traffic areas, including commercial installation. Porcelain tiles are also frost resistant making them a good choice for outdoor use.
Travertine – softer underfoot than ceramic or porcelain but not as scratch or stain-resistant. Wide array of patterns & colors. Good use in bathrooms & showers
Slate – one of the most versatile tiles used inside & outside. Durable. Used for kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, patios, porches, sunrooms.
Marble – beautiful patterns & colors, very resilient, adds character to a room. If you want to use on counters, be aware that it has a porous surface and can stain. Also not scratch resistant.
Granite - scratch-proof & burn-proof - ideal for countertops and tiles are a fraction of the cost of slab
