Why Tile?

Tile is made of naturally occurring materials and is a healthy choice for indoor air quality because it has no volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Tile also offers an extremely long life-cycle and is one of the most durable flooring products on the market. Most tile factories are “closed loop" which means they reuse water and materials, sending minimal waste to landfills and waste water to treatment facilities. Tile is inhospitable to dust mites, mold, germs, and bacteria, and is easily cleaned with just warm water, meaning harmful chemicals are not needed.
