All You Need To Know About Tile Flooring

Tiles are a great option when you’re looking for durability and style. Low maintenance and water-resistant, tiles are ideal for areas exposed to moisture or high traffic. Tile flooring can be found in homes and offices, but what exactly is tile flooring, and would you benefit from installing it? 

 

What is Tile Flooring?

Tile flooring is a general term used to describe any hard-surfaced flooring that is made up of tiles with grout filling the gaps between them. Tiles are available in a variety of materials like ceramic, porcelain, naturally occurring stones and quarried stones like marble, slate, granite etc. Each of these different types of tiles have their own unique characteristics and appearances. The more natural material being used in the tile, the more expensive it is.

Note: Selecting the right grout to compliment your tile is important to prevent water penetration and damage. NewGen only uses the best-quality grout, giving your home or office protection that lasts.

 

What Makes Tile a Good Flooring Choice?

Durability — Properly installed and well-maintained, high-quality tiles can last for more than 20 years, giving your home or office a timeless look.

Water-Resistant — There is no other flooring option that is as water-resistant as tiles. This characteristic makes them an automatic choice for bathrooms, backsplashes, kitchens, outdoors and areas with moisture. 

Low-Maintenance — A damp mop (and dry afterward) now and then is the only requirement to maintain tiles. You can use a broom for dust and debris. 

Note: To avoid scratches, it is always advisable to use furniture pads. Also, when you get your tiles installed, ordering extra or storing uninstalled tiles will help in any future damage or reinstallation.
