Types of Tile & Stone

There's a wide variety of types of tile and stone, and all are suited to different activities. Here are some of the most common:

  • Ceramic and Porcelain are usually used interchangably. Porcelain tiles are fired at higher temperatures than other ceramics, making them more resilient. Porcelain is a good choice for bathrooms and outdoor applications.
  • Glass tiles can be opaque or opalescent. They come in a wide variety of styles, shapes and colors.
  • Granite is a natural stone that comes in a variety of colors. It's very durable and can be used for any surface, including walls, floors and counters.
  • Marble is another natural stone that comes in a variety of patterns and colors.
