Tile Guide

We have the tile you want and need for your next kitchen or bathroom update. Tile is a very versatile product when it comes to style as well as application. United Carpet One Floor & Home in Fresno, CA has what you need when it comes to tile flooring and all your tile needs. Our flooring professionals can help you find the right tile for your project, and can help you design a space around your new tile.

Tile is not limited to just flooring, we also offer tile that can be installed on walls, in showers, and even outside as a walkway or patio. There are several types of tiles to choose from that all can suit the needs of your project as well as appeal to your personal style.

Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.

Types of Tile

We offer three main types of tiles including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Ceramic and porcelain are the two popular tile options for both residential and commercial. They are both made from the same materials, but not all ceramic is porcelain. Porcelain is classified by how dense it is, meaning it does not absorb moisture and is made to handle a heavy workload. Both are perfect options for kitchens and bathrooms alike because they are durable, easy to clean, and come in a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Stone is a natural option we also offer. Stone tile is cut from slabs and quarried from different locations so not all are alike. When properly sealed and maintained, stone flooring will last for years.

Tile Installation

The room you plan on installing tile can determine the type of tile you need for your project. For example, if you want tile in an entry way, consider something that is dense and can handle frequent foot traffic like porcelain. Not all tile can go on both walls and floors. Floor tile needs to be durable and resistant to heavy workloads, where wall tile needs to be somewhat absorbent so it can adhere to your walls. 

Tile can be a very time consuming installation process, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is what you wanted.
