Houses that have tile flooring are often appraised at a higher value. This occurs for a number of reasons, with the biggest reason often being that potential home buyers are highly appreciative of a well-installed tile floor. Here are 4 reasons we recommend accenting your home with our tile flooring in Austin.
1. It Looks Great
Tile is one of the most versatile materials you can use in your home, not only for floors, but also for countertops, backsplashes, porches, and walls. Tile offers options that can fit in with practically any style in almost any room. Both ceramic and porcelain tile offer a variety of color and texture options, even with textures that resemble stone like marble or slate, or even hardwood. You also have different finishes to choose from, from glossy to matte finishes. The color choices are also endless; and with different sizes and the ability to mix and match tiles to create a wide variety of patterns or motifs, the only limitations are often only found in what ideas you can come up with yourself.
2. It Looks Great for Longer
A properly installed tile that has a glaze or sealant can last a lifetime. Glazes and sealants make the tiles resistant to stains and moisture. Colors will not fade in the sun or over time, and many tiles are scratch resistant. If damage does occur, repairs are often simple and quick. Tile is also more resistant to wear from normal foot traffic than many other flooring options, and will not require as frequent replacement as flooring choices like carpet, laminate, or vinyl.
3. Easier to Maintain
Unlike carpet, tile will not become a haven for dust mites, other allergens, and odors. Generally, tile will only require a quick wipe down or mopping with warm water.
4. Keeps Homes Cool
The final reason that we recommend choosing our tile flooring in Austin is because it helps keep a home cooler. This can be especially helpful during the warmer Austin summer, and can even potentially help lower your energy costs for trying to keep your home at a more comfortable temperature during the summer months.
