  • Laminate can be installed on top of most flooring except carpet.

Ceramic & Porcelain tile


Porcelain vs. Ceramic

Tile is a type of flooring that is super durable, long lasting, and can be be installed custom due to its many sizes and shapes.

Ceramic tile is made up of sand, natural products, and clays and once it has been moulded into shape they are then fired in a kiln.  When making ceramic tiles they can either be glazed or unglazed.   

Porcelain is made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which result in impervious, fine grained and smooth. Usually frost-proof and can be installed outdoors.

Installation Notes

  • Trim must be removed for installation.
  • If you have ceramic tile removal, take up can be very dusty. Suggestions: Put up tarps in doorways and close off vents to minimize dust reaching other parts of your home.
  • We do not seal your grout. Most grout can be sealed within 48 hours and last 3-5 years.
  • Shower Installs take at least 1 week depending on size of shower.
  • Back splash and counter tops can separate depending on the seasons – caulk can be used to fill in the space between.
