While selecting the tile that best suits your needs is a fairly straightforward process, there are some precautions and preparations that need to be taken before installing.

Essentials to Vinyl & Resilient  |  top
An economical way to provide yourself with a durable and attractive flooring - vinyl flooring, sometimes referred to as "linoleum", has been installed in homes for years, and its popularity has been steady. Newer on the seen is resilient flooring, an engineered style of vinyl flooring that offers more color and design versatility than traditional vinyl products. Care and maintenance is considered to be easier with the resilient forms of flooring over the vinyl as well. For more information regarding resilient flooring visit Congoleum's website.

Essentials to Countertops  |  top
You've probably heard names like Gibraltar, Corian, Silestone, Caesarstone, Wilsonart, Avonite, and many more thrown around in conversations about countertop surfaces. What do they all mean, and what's the difference between them? There are many options for your countertop project, all depending on what you're looking to get out of your finished product. Natural stones such as granite and quartz, while being a bit more expensive than others, give you a rich, deep textured and colored finished product that will make your countertop the showpiece of any room. Then there are products like Corian, and other composite products that offer a seamless installation. Ceramic tile is another popular choice for countertops, offering a beautiful finish with an affordable price tag. And of course the durability and cost effectiveness of laminate products, in addition to the wide selection of patterns and colors, make it a popular choice.
