Benefits of Tile & Stone
For floor decor that’s creative, practical, and charming, our tile is unbeatable. Amazing colors, shapes, textures, and sizes give you options that make a tile floor so stylish. And when you add extra pizzazz with glass trim, hand-painted accents, or colored grout, you take style to new levels.
One of the best things about tile is the ability to install it in special patterns that add interest to your floor. These patterns are easy to create and offer endless variety—another plus. Try alternating colors for a dramatic, two-toned effect. Mix sizes and shapes; choose between repeated or random patterns. No matter how you lay tile, it’s sure to make a statement.
With a long history as one of the most durable flooring materials available, tile is also a great choice for rooms that see a lot of wear or moisture. It resists stains and scratches and is easy to clean. The result is a floor that’s not only beautiful, but practical as well.
Tile & Stone Installation
If you want a problem-free installation—and we all want that!—here’s a checklist of things to do before the installer arrives.
Make sure you know who’s removing your existing flooring. If you wish, the installer will do it. If not, you should make arrangements to have it removed.
Who’s moving the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the responsibility or if you want the installer to handle it. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room.
If your tile has any linearity to the pattern, decide whether you want it to run in one direction or to be quarter-turned, so that an overall “checkerboard” type pattern is achieved.
Measure door clearances before you have your tile installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw the correct amount off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.
Paint first. If you’re planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other remodeling in the room, it’s best to do it before your tile is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation nicks.
It’s also a good idea to check with us directly to find out if there are other actions we recommend before installation. Just call a member of our friendly sales staff.
