Frequently Asked Questions

The amount of tile you need will vary depending on the cuts you making and the pattern or layout. Generally, you should order 10-20% more tile than the area you plan to cover.

Porcelain: Very affordable, lightweight, and durable. These are great for floor or shower tiles but have many more purposes. Porcelain comes in many textures and finishes -- including textures that mimic stone or wood looks.

Stone: Tiles made of stone tend to be more expensive but provide a beautiful, natural look. They are very durable but some stone can stain.

Glass: Tiles made of glass can be expensive, but they create a new level of depth and light reflectivity. Glass is perfect for backsplashes and shower. They come in a wider variety of bright colors than ceramic or porcelain materials.

Ceramic: These tiles are lightweight and very affordable. You can get the classic subway tile look with ceramic tiles. Painted ceramic tiles can add a eclectic flavor or bright colors to your project.

Installing tile is a pretty easy process, but a professional can do an incredible job very quickly. Always make sure you follow all local, state, and federal regulations regarding your home improvement project. If you are unsure, consult a licensed contractor.
