Floors to Go Offers a Broad Selection of Tile for New Flooring Along with Professional Installation at Affordable Prices
Tile has been used as a building material for thousands of years because it offered many benefits. Today, thanks to improvements in manufacturing processes, tile is available in many more styles, types and designs that give users a nearly limitless set of choices. Perhaps equally important, tile is also an eco-friendly “green” material, because it does not give off any volatile organic compounds that reduce indoor air quality. It is also the ideal choice for use in high humidity environments and for use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and other household areas where spills, leaks and other water sources are frequently present.
Floors to Go carries a complete selection of tiles for residential and commercial customers in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, Sun City, Ruskin and other nearby Florida communities. We provide a diverse selection at the best possible prices and we also offer professional installation. Available types of tile include:
Granite – Granite has been chosen for home countertops for many years. It is also popular for shower surrounds and bathroom counters. Granite tile is naturally antibacterial and will not be damaged by contact with water, which is one reason why granite tiles are such a wonderful choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
Slate – Slate tiles have become more popular over time because they are so versatile; they are even used to roofing shingle roofs. Slate is available in several different color ranges such as grays, purples and blacks. It finds use outdoors as well as indoors, because of its beautiful natural ‘look’ and diverse set of colors.
Travertine – Travertine is a natural, beige-colored stone. It is used for bathroom flooring, shower mosaics, kitchen backsplashes, and more.
Marble – While marble flooring can be very expensive to buy and install, it is extremely durable and lasts much longer than many less costly types of floor tile. A professionally installed marble tile floor will generally last from two to six times longer than most other flooring tiles.
Sandstone – Sandstone, which is extremely durable, has a grainy look and feel. It is often used for wall covering.
Ceramic and porcelain – Ceramic & porcelain tile are two of the most popular and long lasting flooring products currently available. Unlike carpet, vinyl, or laminate flooring which have to be eventually replaced, correctly installed ceramic and porcelain tile will generally last a lifetime. They are available in glazed and unglazed versions and many different sizes.
Other tile benefits
Tile is hypoallergenic – Tile is not hospitable to dust mites, fungus, mold, germs, or bacteria like some other flooring materials, and is therefore the best flooring choice for people who suffer from allergies or asthma. Tile requires low maintenance – Ceramic tile is very easy to clean. You only need to use warm water, doing away with any need for costly chemicals and cleaners that are necessary to maintain other types of flooring materials.
