Build for Life

Porcelain Tile is one of the most sustainable building materials available. The increased awareness by architects, designers and builders of tile’s natural, long lifecycle has made its use more prevalent.

Tile provides a long lasting, low maintenance sustainable flooring option, which can take on the look of various other materials such as limestone, wood & marble.

The durability of porcelain tile is up to 4 times that of other materials. Maintenance is simple, warm water and neutral cleaners are the only products required. Ceramic tile does not emit any VOC's, nor does it absorb odors from smoke, paint fumes or other contaminants which aids in enhancing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Combining environmentally friendly elements with unlimited design possibilities produces flooring that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. Architects and designers are easily able to incorporate these features into modern design and construction.
