Tile's strength and style
Ceramic, Stone, and Porcelain
Are you looking for the perfect floor tile for your new project? Let the tile experts at Jay Carpet One in Athens, PA help. We carry multiple tile options, including ceramic, porcelain, and stone, as well as a variety of colors, patterns, designs, and even textures.
Ceramic tile is best for residential settings like homes and apartments. Why? Ceramic has the greatest design versatility because it is available in so many different sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns. As a result, there is a perfect ceramic tile for any design you have in mind. At the same time, ceramic tile remains durable and strong. It resists water and heat, so it’s suitable for bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms with moisture. And, since the floor tiles are made particularly thick, they can handle foot traffic and most impacts.
Like ceramic, stone tile is great for residential settings. It is strong and durable, and it remains water and stain resistant when specially treated. What really sets stone tile apart, however, is its natural appearance. Stone tile is made from real stone, so it possesses a natural beauty that you simply cannot find with other tile types. So, for natural looks in rooms with moisture and humidity, stone tile is a great option.
Nonetheless, ceramic and stone tiles are not best for outdoor settings. Instead, we recommend porcelain tile. Unlike ceramic and stone, porcelain tile is strong enough to withstand heavy moisture and changing weather conditions. The tiles will not crack under these intense pressures, and they will even remain slip resistant! There are some tradeoffs with design, however, since porcelain tile does not offer as many sizes, shapes, colors, and designs. But, given the extra strength and durability, porcelain is great for outdoor and commercial settings.
