Tile Flooring Installation in Atlanta
Looking for low prices on tile flooring installation in Atlanta? Best Carpet Quote offers just that - the best prices while using quality products and materials. With more than 20 years of experience, we have perfected the process. From meeting with you at a free in-home estimate to the final touches on the project, we work hard to provide you with a completely new look anywhere inside your home.
There are so many reasons that more and more people are choosing tile as their floor covering choice. While being natural and handcrafted, it is still easy to care for and durable. In fact, it works well in high-traffic areas including entryways where water and dirt frequently enter. However, one of the most attractive features is the ability to create a limitless number of design patterns with combinations of size and texture as well as color. You can even choose hand-painted tiles or colored grouts to really make the area stand out.
Here are some of the types we offer:
- Terra cotta
In addition to color and style, we sit down with you and determine which rating of tiles will work well in the area. For higher traffic sections of the home, you need a hard, abrasion-resistant material. In the bathroom, you need something that is not only moisture-proof, but made from non-slip materials. Some are made for outdoor use, others are made for indoor use, and still others are made to work in both places. The best part? You don't have to worry about these types of details. That's why we are here - to assist you through every step of the process.
You've chosen the color, the style, and the materials, and now you get to choose the thickness and measurements. Typically tiles are 1/2" to 3/4" thick. They measure 4"x4" up to 24"x 24" but other shapes such as octagons and hexagons are available. Mosaic tiles are two inches square or smaller and can be placed individually.
We know that when it comes to tile flooring installation, Atlanta residents look to Best Carpet Quote. Customers come to us because we take the time to walk each one through the selection process and work with them to choose the right materials for the right area. If you are ready to make a change, give us a call and set up a free in-home estimate.
Tile continues to grow in popularity as a floor covering, with good reason.
- Tile has a natural, handcrafted look that's durable and easy to care for.
- Tile works well in areas with high foot traffic, and it's especially suited to entry areas where water and dirt enter the house.
- Design patterns are limitless when using all of the possible combinations of size, texture and color.
- You can further expand your creative toolbox with hand painted tiles and colored grouts.
- By combining various geometric layout and numerous trim tiles your design options are practically limitless.
Finding a tile you like is easy. Just make sure it's the right one for your floor and choose a tile that's rated for the area you where you plan to install it. Entryways need a hard, abrasion-resistant, moisture-proof tile. Baths require a moisture-proof non-slip material. Slip-resistant tile is treated with an abrasive material to "rough up" the smooth surface for safety. Some tiles are rated for indoor or outdoor use only, others can be used in either application.
Floor tile is usually 1/2" to 3/4" thick, manufactured in squares measuring 4"x4" up to 24"x 24". Other shapes, such as octagonal and hexagonal are available. (Wall tile is thinner and comes in squares from 3"x 3" up to 6"x 6".)
Mosaic tiles are two inches square or smaller and can be installed individually. Mosaic tiles are also available in pre-mounted paper or fabric mesh sheets.
All tile feels hard, but some types of tile are actually harder than others. Tile is rated by a series of standardized tests. The tests evaluate a tile's relative hardness (the Moh scale), its ability to stand up to wear and the percentage of water absorbed.
The Porcelain Enamel Institute hardness ratings are:
- Group I - Light Traffic: residential bathroom floors where bare or stocking feet are the norm.
- Group II - Medium Traffic: home interiors where little abrasion occurs. Don't use in kitchens or entries.
- Group III - Medium-Heavy Traffic: any home interior.
- Group IV - Heavy Traffic: homes or light to medium commercial areas.
- Group V- Extra Heavy Traffic: use it anywhere.
These ratings are important, but don't get too bogged down in analysis ? we will help you find the right tile for your application.
Types of Tile
Since tile is not a resilient material, it requires a very stable subsurface. Subfloors frequently have to be built up to the thickness required for tile flooring.
See below for some common (and some less common) floor tile.
Brick tiles are a good floor choice for informal or rustic d?cor. Available in several earth tone colors, bricks tiles should be treated with a stain resistant sealer. Floor brick is normally used in outdoor settings (such as patios) and can be arranged in interesting geometric patterns.
Cement-bodied tiles are poured into molds, then fired or dried naturally. Color may be added. Sealing is required after installation for moisture and stain resistance.
Ceramic tile is made from clay or other minerals. The extruded material is shaped and heat-treated (fired) in a kiln. Clay tiles are then further treated in one of two ways:
- Glazed ? color is added to the tile after firing. The glass-like surface is bonded to the tile. Glazing allows brighter colors to be used and adds stain resistance. Because of their slick, glassy surface, glazed tiles are used mostly on walls or countertops. Glazed tile offers more color choices than unglazed
- Unglazed ? (Also called quarry tiles). The pigment or natural color is present during firing and is part of the tile itself. Unglazed tile needs sealing for stain resistance.
Porcelain or ceramic mosaic tiles are two inches square or smaller. They can be installed individually or can be found pre-mounted on mesh or paper sheets. Mosaics may be glazed or unglazed.
Pavers resemble brick, but are thinner. Shale based pavers are used for patios as well as interior floors. Like quarry tile, pavers needs sealing for moisture and stain proofing
The material is fired at a very high temperature, making a dense tile. The denser tile makes porcelain tile more resistant to moisture.
Quarry tile is unglazed and requires sealing in wet areas. Clay-based quarry tile is used extensively in commercial settings. Because it's a durable and relatively inexpensive material, it's becoming more acceptable in homes. The predominant colors are earth shades of red and orange.
Saltillo or Mexican tile is air dried rather than kiln dried. Drying outdoors in the sun makes this tile a little softer and less durable. The exposure to the elements also gives the tile a look that is unique. When used indoors a sealer is required.
Terra cotta is the same material in construction and appearance as clay garden pots. Tiles are absorbent and need to be treated for indoor use.
Stone or marble chips embedded in cement make up a terrazzo floor. The polished surface makes a durable floor material.
