Why should you choose tile

from Watkins Floor Covering?

The many benefits of ceramic tile are the reason discerning builders choose it for their projects. When the eco-friendly characteristics of ceramic tile are factored in, for building green, ceramic tile is an obvious choice.

The life cycle of ceramic tile

Ceramic tile is one of the longest lasting products on the flooring market. Unlike laminate, vinyl, and carpet, it does not have to be replaced. Installed ceramic tile lasts a lifetime.

Ceramic tile promotes quality indoor air

With good reason, quality indoor air is a concern. Volatile organic compounds referred to as VOCs, contribute to a variety of health problems. They can cause something known as sick building syndrome. The extremely high temperatures in the kilns that fire ceramic tile prevent volatile organics from being released into the air. Grouts and adhesives that are low, or have no VOCs are available.

Ceramic tile manufacturers are conscious of the environment

The factories reuse materials and water. Only a negligible amount of scrap is sent to landfills. Wastewater is sent to treatment facilities.

Ceramic tile is regionally available

Ceramic tile products are made from local raw materials that are readily available. Other flooring choices must have products shipped from thousands of miles away to reach the consumer. Being regionally available reduces the air emissions and energy associated with the shipment of products from the factory.

Ceramic tile is hypoallergenic

Bacteria, germs, mold and dust mites find ceramic tile to be inhospitable. People suffering from asthma and allergies have replaced carpet with ceramic tile.

Ceramic tile is low maintenance

Only warm water is needed to clean ceramic tile. The need for cleaners and chemicals is eliminated.

Ceramic tile is the most economical flooring

Over the life of a floor, ceramic tile costs less annually than other types of flooring. Ceramic tile costs under $0.40 per sq.ft. per year. Other flooring is significantly more expensive, because it has a shorter life expectancy.
