Tile & Stone

Natural tile flooring can be made from a variety of materials, including stone and clay. The latter is used to create ceramic and porcelain tile.Ceramic tile is molded from clay, then pressed and heated under extreme pressure to forma rigid material. There are two main types of ceramic tile.

Either type of ceramic tile can be manufactured to be glazed or unglazed. Glazed tile is fired a second time to give the clay tile a glass-like, often colored surface coating. This gives the tile the added benefit of increased resistance to stains, scratches and moisture.

Natural stone tile is also produced from natural materials, including granite, marble, limestone, travertine and slate.

Where to install tile 

Tile is a versatile design material, well suited to many areas of the home. You’ll commonly find it in kitchens and bathrooms, although it can technically be installed anywhere. 

When installing tile flooring, keep in mind the type of tile you’re working with. Ceramics, especially porcelain, are often more durable than stone, especially when glazed. If you do prefer stone, make sure you choose an appropriate type for your space. Porous rock such as limestone, for example, won’t work well in bathrooms or kitchens where liquid spills are common. 

Tile can also be applied to outdoor areas and open-air environments. The same considerations apply – avoid porous materials and slippery surfaces. 

Finally, tile can be used decoratively in other areas of the home, such as on walls and as backsplashes to highlight aspects of your design.Whatever your desired look or individual budget is, Pilot Floor Covering proudly boasts an array of various tiles from the country’s leading tile manufacturers: Shaw, Florida Tile and Daltile.
