Types of Stone Tile. Homeowners who select stone tile will have a few options to choose from: Granite Tile: Gives your flooring a unique character that can’t be matched. If your floors see very heavy traffic, granite is the way to go. Marble Tile: Gives a home that elegant or traditional appearance so many desire. Slate Tile: Of all the stones, slate does a great job of resisting fading and chemicals, which makes cleaning slate tile floors that much easier. Limestone Tile: Is formed by settled sedimentary rocks that pressurized at the bottom of the ocean. Limestone tile can look very similar to wood, a good alternative if you’re looking for a more modern touch.
Solid Hardwood Floors, solid hardwood floors are made from one, solid piece of natural wood. The entire plank is made from wood. It’s the only material used, something laminate or engineered hardwood can’t say. Typically, hardwood is three quarters of an inch thick. It must be nailed down to wood subfloors. This will limit many homeowners who live on a slab or under concrete.
When repairing tile floors, you or the pro must ensure that the concrete holding the tile down is level with existing tiles, in addition to maintaining the existing pattern. The more complex this is, the more the repair will cost. Because tiles are laid one by one, a professional should be able to remove just a couple of tiles and replace them. For a simple repair of a few tiles in a floor, expect to pay about $100 in materials, depending on the amount of tiles as they are priced individually. Overall, with labor, this is a $300 to $600 job for an established, reputable business.
Ceramic Tile Advantages. As I previously mentioned, ceramic tile will be cheaper than most tile options on the block. Ceramic is very durable and unless you are bowling in your house, it’s very hard to crack. Given its hard texture, ceramic tile is very easy to clean and compared to other tile types, you have an abundance of designs to choose from.
