Tile flooring in a modern Rockwall, TX home

Tile presents unique installation challenges

Tile is a popular flooring choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways. Tile floors are durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean. CW Floors & Lighting is a flooring retailer in Texas that offers tile flooring installation in Denton, Rockwall, and San Antonio. We have a showroom in each location that is filled with many types of tile and other floor coverings as well as lighting products. You can also browse our extensive flooring and lighting catalogs. Each type of tile has different characteristics that sometimes influence how it is installed.

Ceramic vs porcelain tile???

Porcelain is the most durable tile available. It is tougher, less porous, harder, and denser than ceramic tile. It?s nearly completely resistant to water damage since it has a very low absorption rate. Understandably, porcelain is more expensive than ceramic tile. As for installation, porcelain is hard to cut so it?s not a job for the average DIYer. Professional installation by CW Floors & Lighting assures a flawless finish with undamaged tiles. While ceramic tile has a relatively soft surface, installation is still a job for the pros. Ceramic tile must be installed over a subfloor that's no less than 1-1/8 inches thick. If your subfloor has deficiencies, we can take care of that too.


You can count on our tile installation service when it comes to getting professional results with terracotta tile. No two in a batch of these hand-formed red or earth-hued clay tiles are the same. Tiles are usually unglazed and very porous, and none are of the same thickness. Other types of tile present unique challenges that our team is qualified to handle. These include vinyl, stone, linoleum, cork, glass, and metal.
