Tile flooring is long-lasting and easy to maintain. Tile flooring is durable, resistant to water when sealed properly and depending on the materials you choose, very resistant to scratches and cracks. You can clean it simply with soap and water. In the very rare occasion that a tile breaks, you can remove the broken tile and replace it with a new one, without having to worry about replacing the entire floor.
Tile flooring is good for the environment. Other flooring options like carpet, laminate or vinyl have to be replaced far more often than durable tile and that means those options create more waste in the landfill. The manufacturing of tile is also better for the planet as it produces less waste and can be made by reusing water and other materials. It will also improve the environment inside your home! Dust, dander and the build up of allergens will be reduced with tile flooring. Plus, most types of tile are fired in kilns at very high temperatures ensuring that no volatile organics in the finished product will be released in the air of your home.
Increase your property’s resale value. As mentioned before, tile flooring is very attractive to home buyers. It means that they won’t have to worry about replacing the floor when they move in because they will already have a luxurious, upgraded tile floor. That can help your home sell faster at a price you’re the happiest with. You’ll enjoy this high-end floor yourself and when it is time to sell, you will benefit from this investment.
