Wood-Look Tile

FIVE REASONS WOOD-LOOK TILE IS FAVORED OVER HARDWOOD FLOORING
BEAUTY AND DURABILITY ARE ONLY THE BEGINNING

You can’t beat the welcome that hardwood floors offer after a long, hard day at work. But those shiny planks only last so long. Before you know it, the scratches and water damage have taken their toll and your floors need a costly resurfacing.

Advances in the tile industry have produced a wood-look tile to rival everything you love about wood floors without the problems of hardwood. Daltile’s wood-look lines offer you all the beauty of domestic and exotic hardwoods with the high-performance qualities you’ve come to love in our tile.

Here’s why people favor wood-look flooring over traditional hardwood.

1. DURABILITY

Wood-look flooring is easy to maintain and easy to clean. You don’t have to be careful about your cleaning methods or worry about damaging tile when your dog runs to the door or your child drops the entire pitcher of red punch.

If damage does occur, you can replace a single tile (or multiple tiles) easily without having to rip up a whole section of the floor. You should consider putting down new sealer every 3-5 years to keep moisture from seeping into the tile or the grout.

2. REDUCED COSTS

Technology in the tile industry has produced tile that looks so much like wood you’d have to get down on your hands and knees to see the difference. Little details like grain, knots, and differences in shade are easily replicated on tile. That means that you can get the look of a costly, exotic wood at a much more reasonable tile price.

3. UNLIMITED APPLICATION

Wood-look tile can go just about anywhere, including in the shower and outdoors-where wood just doesn’t cut it. It actually repels liquid, eliminating problems with staining, mold, and warping.

4. CUSTOMIZATION
Designing a unique pattern on a wood floor can be expensive and time-consuming. With tile, customization is built in. You can mix-and-match colors, grains, and sizes for your own unique design.

You can create a custom flooring design that’s one of a kind with Daltile’s selection, which offers you wider planks than you can get in wood. Most wood planks are fairly narrow because the wider the plank, the easier it warps.

5. SUSTAINABILITY
Nearly 20 million trees are cut down each year. Wood-look flooring can help cut down that staggering number. Tile gives the warmth and welcoming look of wood without destroying a single tree.

The tile materials can last many decades. You’ll want to update your look long before your tile wears out.

Nothing matches the appeal, warmth, and performance of Daltile’s wood-look tile. Create a beautiful floor today with our wood-mimicking selections and find the durable alternative you’ve been looking for.

Floors for Entertaining – Part 2

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Last week we told you about Karndean PVC, one of favorite floors that are great for entertaining. Karndean PVC is a product is designed to look like hardwood or tile but is made out of polyvinyl chloride, a durable material that has been used as a floor covering for many years. Another great flooring option for entertaining is Armstrong’s luxury vinyl tile, Alterna.

Alterna luxury vinyl tile flooring is the innovative alternative to natural stone and ceramic tile. Like stone and ceramic, it’s incredibly beautiful and durable. But a comfortable surface makes Alterna tiles warmer to the touch, kinder to your feet, and easier to care for in any room of your home.

Like Karndean PVC flooring, Alterna is also resistant to spillages and very easy to clean. Although Alterna looks very similar to tile and stone, it is more comfortable underfoot. Alterna also comes in a wide variety of colors and styles to fit in any home. Another great aspect to Alterna that is useful during the fall and winter months is that it is much warmer to the touch than stone or tile.

Overall, Alterna Luxury Vinyl tile is stylish, easy to clean, warm to the touch, and soft underfoot. We think it’s a great flooring choice to have in your home at any time of the year but especially when entertaining during the holidays.
To check out Alterna and other great products, or to schedule a complimentary measurement and estimate, visit Champion Floors in either Schertz or Universal City.

Floors for Entertaining – Part 1

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

The holidays are quickly approaching and while we know pumpkin pie and presents are on everyone’s minds, maybe it’s time to think about your floors. In this 3 part series we will talk about floors that are the most durable and great for entertaining.

Karndean PVC is a product is designed to look like hardwood or tile but is made out of polyvinyl chloride, a durable material that has been used as a floor covering for many years. Unlike the natural materials they replicate, PVC flooring products don’t crack or split, are warm and quiet underfoot, low maintenance and are easier and quicker to install. We love it because it comes in so many different styles and colors and really fits in any home.

Karndean PVC flooring is also resistant to spillages making them an ideal choice for use in kitchen and bathroom areas. Unlike many floors, Karndean PVC doesn’t have grime and dirt traps making it easier to clean! The enhanced surface treatment of PVC defends against those damages that can easily spoil the look of traditional floorings. Maintaining PVC is polish-free, greatly reducing both chemical and water usage (making it more environment friendly) compared to traditional maintenance routines.
