Advantages of Tile Floors

Aug 6th, 20102 Comments

Tile flooring has been around since mankind started building floors.  With eons of tile improvement and today’s knowledge of materials, tile floors are an excellent choice for your home.

Here are some of the advantages of tile floors:

  • Durability – Tile floors can last a lifetime.
  • Endurance – Tile floors do not wear down as many other flooring options do.  They tend to keep their original appearance for decades.
  • Ease of maintenance – Cleaning a tile floor requires no more than sweeping and mopping.  A properly sealed tile floor can even be hosed down!   The only upkeep requirement is the application of sealant every few years.
  • Designs – The styles of tile flooring are myriad.  Just about any design you can dream of can be incorporated into your tile floor.
  • Matching other surfaces – The tiling on your floor can also be applied to your walls.  Tile walls in your kitchen or bathroom will be water resistant and will give your rooms a wonderfully snug feel.
  • Cost – Tile flooring does cost more initially, but with a long lifetime the overall cost decreases dramatically and is often lower than other types of flooring.
  • Ease of Repair – Tile flooring is hard to break, but big accidents do occur.  If one of your tiles does break, you simply replace it with a new tile and re-grout the small area.  Repairing tile floors is usually less costly and far less time consuming than repairing any other type of flooring.
  • Home value – Tile flooring is a good way to add value to your home.  A well-styled tile floor can add thousands of dollars to your home resale value.
