Types of Tile

Today’s tile consumers will be pleased to discover there are many different tile options available. Most tile is manufactured from ceramic, porcelain, or stone.

  • Ceramic tiles are molded out of natural clays and minerals, for a product that can withstand infinite foot traffic.
  • Porcelain tiles are created in a similar fashion, except they get fired at higher temperatures for a denser tile that’s right at home for outdoor patios.
  • Stone tile is carved from natural stone, like granite, slate, and marble.
