Examining the pros and cons of different types of wholesale tile
Many homeowners are interested in installing wholesale tile in their living spaces, but there are several different types to choose from, each with their own pros and cons. The three of the most common tiles are ceramic, granite and marble. Here is what wholesale flooring professionals need to inform their clients of before they make a final decision, according to LivingWithMyHome.com.
1. Ceramic tile. This variety of wholesale tile is aesthetically pleasing and easier to maintain than vinyl. However, its glossy nature means that it can be scratched easily. The World Floor Covering Association adds that regular damp mopping is necessary for maintenance.
2. Marble tile. Similar to ceramic, marble tile can be easily scratched, but it can typically be buffed out. Marble is also solid, moisture-resistant and meant to last, making it perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.
3. Granite tile. This is one of the most durable types of tile, made from natural materials. Although it is commonly used on counter tops, it can be installed on floors to accentuate the existing decor of a living space. Although granite is resistant to most damage, it can be difficult to repair in the event of a scratch or crack.
