The construction of ceramic or porcelain tiles is such that they may be used on various surfaces: as kitchen countertops, backsplashes, or the floor in the kitchen or entryway, as well as other areas of the home. The construction of a piece of porcelain tile or ceramic tile consists of the bisque (or body) and the top coat or glaze. It is here that the color, design and surface finish are prominent.
Natural wood products have long been prized by homeowners where a special elegance is desired in a particular setting. Although hardwood floors have traditionally consisted of oak or maple, other woods such as pine and cherry may also be used. Solid wood products are created from a single piece of wood and are generally installed on a wood subfloor. An engineered product, consisting of several layers, is used when the subfloor is concrete. Wood surfaces are available in planks, strips or parquets, with a variety of stain finishes. The finish on these products often lasts 10 to 15 years, seldom requiring resanding. Regular maintenance is as easy as using a broom, mop or terry cloth.
Laminate and Vinyl
Laminate flooring is designed with melamine. This provides strength and endurance as well as allowing the manufacturer to utilize various surfaces such as the look of wood, tile, or a natural stone appearance. Laminates are often less expensive than their counterparts while providing easier maintenance and more durable product. The surface layer is highly resistant to scratches and dents and resists stains, dirt and moisture. Generally, cleanup can be done with a damp cloth or mop, or by vacuuming.
Ceramic, Porcelain, and Natural Stone
The construction of ceramic or porcelain tiles is such that they may be used on various surfaces: as kitchen countertops, backsplashes, or the floor in the kitchen, entryway or outside porches and patios, as well as other areas of the home. The construction of a piece of porcelain tile or ceramic tile consists of the bisque (or body) and the top coat or glaze. It is here that the color, design and surface finish are prominent.
