Ceramic & porcelain for every room

Contrary to popular belief, ceramic & porcelain can be used in far more spaces than just bathrooms and kitchens. They attained a reputation for such areas thanks to their wonderful water resistant abilities, and these rooms are an excellent placement. However, for the very same reasons and more, they also make a great flooring choice for any other space in your home. Since you never know where a spill or accident might happen, especially with children and pets in the home, it’s always best to be a bit over prepared.

You get an excellent lifespan in ceramic & porcelain, with an average of about 40 years with proper care and maintenance. The fact that they are so hard, dense, and durable helps to maintain that length of life, and some last even longer. Other benefits include a better breathing environment since there are no cracks or crevices in which allergens can hide, and it offers no opportunity for mold, mildew, or bacteria to grow. It’s also a wonderful kitchen flooring, as it provides a healthier atmosphere in which to cook.

Be sure to speak with your flooring specialist about the necessity of a professional flooring installation with these materials.
