Tile Flooring

Traditionally, tiles have been made of glazed or unglazed fired clay, but modern tiles are also made of plastic, glass, asphalt, or asbestos cement. Acoustical tiles are manufactured from fibreboard or other sound-absorbing materials.

Tile flooring is a broad term for any tough flooring cut into tiles, with the gaps between them filled with grout. Tile flooring is frequently made of stone, ceramic, or porcelain (glazed ceramic). Stone tiles are the most natural product with inherent beauty and their strength depends on the type of stone used.

Tile flooring is manufactured from a variety of materials such as clay, stone, metal, terrazzo, and quartz. Each type of tile flooring has its own defining characteristics. Generally speaking, the two most commonly used types of tile flooring are ceramic and natural stone.
