Tips for Buying Tile & Stone
Tile and stone are time-honored building materials that help give your home personality and warmth.A backsplash of fine decorative porcelain tiles will brighten up your kitchen. A slate floor in your entryway will feel great underfoot, and add color and durability to a high-traffic area.
If you are considering using tile or stone in your home, you first need to think about where and how it will be used. The answers to those questions will help you determine which product is best for your situation.
Tiles are available in almost limitless colors and sizes, but they usually either have a protective glaze, or they are unglazed. Tiles for bathroom and kitchen walls, showers, floors, and countertops generally are glazed, to protect them from water and other spills. Tiles for floors may be either glazed or unglazed, depending on where they are used.
Common types of tile include porcelain, which may have a glazed, matte, or unglazed finish; guarry tile, which is made from natural clay and may be glazed or unglazed; terracotta tile, which also is made from natural clay, and either comes prefinished or will require sealing once it's installed; and agglomerate tiles, which are made from chips of natural stone suspended in a binder like epoxy, resin, or portland cement.
The texture of stone products can vary from very smooth to quite rough. Polished stone may have to be refinished from time to time, to maintain its finish.
Once you decide how you will be using tile or stone, you should look at some samples to determine what you like. Most housing supply companies will offer many different options.
If you are planning to install tile or stone in an existing building, you also will have to decide if you will hire someone to install it or do the work yourself.
Next, establish your budget, including all materials and tools needed, and labor costs if you're hiring the work out.
From there, figure out how much material you will need. You should also check to see whether the retailer carries your selection in stock, or whether it will have to be ordered, so you can plan accordingly.
