HARDWOOD, SOLID OR ENGINEERED

LUXURY VINYL TILE/PLANK
LVT's biggest difference when compared to sheet vinyl is the ability to closely mimic natural materials wood or stone. LVT has a thicker wear layer, thicker dimensions and more realistic deeper embossing. Composed of 100% vinyl or a vinyl/limestone combination. Most appealing to customers is its ease in cleaning, water resistance and pet friendly.
CERAMIC AND PORCELAIN TILES
Ceramic is more porous than porcelain and depending on the quality, may not be as durable as porcelain. Porcelain is a type of dense durable ceramic. It is made from a more refined ceramic that is less absorbent to moisture and more stain resistant. Ceramic is typically made from a white or red clay and the color is baked on the top of the tile only. Porcelain is a refined white clay the color runs through the whole tile. This is called full body or through body color.
