Tile flooring in a beautiful Rockwall, TX kitchen

Tile installation requires careful preparation

Ceramic and porcelain are the most popular types of flooring tiles. Stones like marble, travertine, and slate are also common. Glass, terracotta, metal, cement, and cork are a few more options. Tile is aesthetically pleasing, durable, and resistant to dirt and stains. CW Floors and Lighting offers a big selection of tile brands. Our tile flooring service includes free samples and in-home measurement, design consultation, and installation. For your convenience, we have showrooms in three locations: San Antonio, Denton, and Rockwall, Texas.

Ceramic and porcelain

Ceramic and porcelain must be installed on a clean, level, and rigid surface. Therefore, the existing floor needs to be removed, and the subfloor must be repaired if needed. Both types of tiles are made of clay. Because of its makeup and the way it is fired in the kiln, porcelain is the better material. It is dense and virtually impervious to water. Porcelain is the most durable type of tile on the market. A wet tile saw is used to cut both ceramic and porcelain. It's a job for the pros. Porcelain is particularly difficult to work with since it's brittle. Usually, a matte, semi-gloss, or high-gloss glaze is applied to both types of tile after installation.

Natural stone and more

Natural stones like slate, travertine, marble, and granite create floors that have a one-of-a-kind look. As with clay materials, stone flooring installation includes proper subfloor preparation. Then the stones are laid on the floor and grout is applied to keep them together. A variety of grout colors are available. Lastly, the stones are sealed with a glaze. Other tile materials include cork and standard vinyl, both of which are usually glued down. You can also opt for luxury vinyl tile (LVT). It is thicker than standard tile, and it more realistically mimics natural stone. Most often, LVT connects to float over the subfloor.
