Carpet One Floor & Home Commercial Flooring in Cheyenne, Laramie, and Casper is your local source for all things tile, including name brand products such as Surface Art. Tile is more than just flooring; it can also be installed on your walls, in your showers, and even outside as a patio or walkway. Our selection of tiles includes styles that are traditional and also tiles that follow the latest trends. Tile is one of the oldest surface materials in the world, and although styles and aesthetics have changed, the manufacturing process has remained much the same.
Tile manufacturing will more than likely never change, why fix something that is not broken? The manufacturing process uses raw materials like sand and clay and then fires the materials in a kiln. Chemicals are added to the tile to give them shape, and glass is used to create a glaze on most tiles.
Surface Art manufactures inherently absorbent ceramic tile options. These tile types can absorb a lot of moisture and can only be installed inside of your home as a wall tile. They can only be used on walls, and for scratch and stain resistance some come with a porcelain glaze. You typically only see ceramic tile used in residential settings. Ideally you can install ceramic tile in places like your kitchen and bathroom.
Surface Art also manufactures durable porcelain tile. Their porcelain collection comes in two different options, one can absorb some moisture and the other is almost completely moisture resistant and can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms as well as outside as a patio or walkway.
