Tiles can increase the value of any
home. Ceramic tiles, mosaic tile, floor tile all add an extra
quality to your home. Tile can be found throughout a home from
the kitchen, bathrooms, and even the flooring. Tiles are widely
available in most home improvement stores and also in specialty
stores throughout the company. Finding the right tile for a home
with the right color, design, and even pattern can seem
overwhelming. But, the results of this project can be beneficial
for years to come.
TILE IS AVAILABLE IN A WIDE RANGE
OF SHAPES AND SIZES
Brick- tiles are a
good floor choice for informal or rustic décor. Available in
several earth tone colors, bricks tiles should be treated with a
stain resistant sealer. Floor brick is normally used in outdoor
settings (such as patios) and can be arranged in interesting
Ceramic — tile is made
from clay or other minerals. The extruded material is shaped and
heat-treated (fired) in a kiln. Clay tiles are then further
treated in one of two ways
Glazed — color is
added to the tile after firing. The glasslike surface is bonded
to the tile. Glazing allows brighter colors to be used and adds
stain resistance. Because of their slick, glassy surface, glazed
tiles are used mostly on walls or countertops. Glazed tile
offers more color choices than
Unglazed — (Also
called quarry tiles). The pigment or natural color is present
during firing and is part of the tile itself. Unglazed tile
needs sealing for stain resistance.
Porcelain or ceramic mosaic-
tiles are two inches square or smaller. They can be installed
individually or can be found pre-mounted on mesh or paper
sheets. Mosaics may be glazed or unglazed.
brick, but are thinner. Shale based pavers are used for patios
as well as interior floors. Like quarry tile, pavers needs
sealing for moisture and stain proofing.
material is fired at a very high temperature, making a dense
tile. The denser tile makes porcelain tile more resistant to
Saltillo or Mexican-
tile is air dried rather than kiln dried. Drying outdoors in the
sun makes this tile a little softer and less durable. The
exposure to the elements also gives the tile a look that is
unique. When used indoors a sealer is required.
Terra cotta- is the
same material in construction and appearance as clay garden
pots. Tiles are absorbent and need to be treated for indoor use.
Terrazzo- Stone or
marble chips embedded in cement make up a terrazzo floor. The
polished surface makes a durable floor material.
All tile feels hard, but some types of
tile are actually harder than others. Tile is rated by a series
of standardized tests. The tests evaluate a tile's relative
hardness (the Moh scale), its ability to stand up to wear and
the percentage of water absorbed.
The Porcelain Enamel Institute
hardness ratings are:
Group I - Light Traffic:
residential bathroom floors where bare or stocking feet are the
Group II - Medium Traffic:
home interiors where little abrasion occurs. Don't use in
kitchens or entries.
Group III - Medium-Heavy
Traffic: any home interior. Group IV- Heavy Traffic:
homes or light to medium commercial areas.
Group V- Extra Heavy
Traffic: use it anywhere.
