Tile is one of the many popular flooring options. But why would you choose tile over hardwood, luxury vinyl plank, or carpet? Isn’t tile outdated? Let's look at some common questions about tile.

Is tile outdated?

Short answer? No. Tile is not outdated. Tile is available in a wide variety of styles. Want a stone look? You got it! Like the look of luxury vinyl plank but want something even more durable? Tile does that too! Tile comes in almost any style and color you can imagine. Contemporary, traditional, farmhouse or any mix of design taste- it's all here!

What rooms should I use tile in?

Tile is versatile. Use it for the kitchen floor or backsplash. The living room or dining room floor. Or maybe the most popular, the bathroom. Let’s talk about that for a second.

Tile bathrooms. We all know tile showers are common. But is that the only place to use tile in the bathroom? And why should you have a tile shower anyway?

Tile does well with high moisture environments such as your shower. The glaze that's on tiles makes them extremely waterproof and slip resistant.  Actually, because tile does so well in wet environments, it works well for the entire bathroom. Put it on the floor and the walls! Cleaning just became that much easier! Plus, you won’t have the moisture concerns about your walls that you would otherwise have with drywall.

Are tile floors really cold in the winter?

So, we get it. Leola, Pa is a cold place in the winter time. We’re with you. Luckily, your floor doesn’t have to freeze along with the weather. We’ve got heated floors for that. We don’t want cold feet and we know you don’t either.

How long does tile last?

Tile is rated the longest lasting flooring material and very resilient. Because of this, it has a lifespan of 30-50+ years. A crucial part of its longevity is the installation process. Faulty installation will decrease the lifespan of your tile considerably.
