Pros and Cons of Tile Flooring
The Pros and Cons of Tile Flooring You Should Know
You are a homeowner faced with the dilemma of what materials you should use to replace your flooring. So, you need to know the pros and cons of tile flooring.
If you install the wrong product, it could cost you not only your money but you could end up living with your regret for the next unknown years. But have no fear! We’re here to guide you through this process and help you make the right decision.
After reading this article, you’ll be perfectly equipped to move forward with confidence and install the flooring of your dreams to enjoy for years to come.
The Installation Process of Tile Flooring
As a rough estimate, we can install tile flooring at a rate of around 100-150 square feet per day. This assumes a standard-sized room with no significant obstacles or complicated designs.
However, the installation time may be longer if the tiled area is larger or has more complex features.
Tile flooring installation can be a tedious process. Still, with our professional installation team on your side, we do all of the hard work for you and make the wait worth your while with a gorgeous tile finish that you and your family can enjoy your most precious moments on for years to come.
Glass and Dishes Don’t Stand a Chance
Sadly, if you drop a glass or breakable dish on the tile, you can kiss it goodbye. However, this impact won’t affect your tile, and the cleanup is easy, leaving you to replace what you’ve broken and move on.
However, if you had made this spill on a carpet, you could still salvage your dish, but you could have a hefty wine or sauce stain that haunts your carpet like an unwanted house ghost!
Grout is Hard to Keep Clean
This is true, but we also recommend cleaning up tile spills immediately. The sooner you wipe up a spill, the less time it has to thicken on your grout, and the easier it is to keep your floor clean.
Tile Gets Cold During the Winter
We admit it! Tile can be frigid during a cold Texas winter. So, you’ll need to invest in house shoes or slippers. However, that’s just a few months out of the year!
The rest of the year, Texas has moderate to hotter weather that makes walking on your interior tiles a relaxing, soothing experience.
Tile Lasts for Decades
Well-installed tile can last homeowners upwards of 20 years. This is especially true if you follow our easy maintenance tips above.
Carpet and wood flooring, despite meticulous care, will experience faster wear and tear, lasting at a minimum between 5 and 10 years.
Tile Can Withstand Disaster
If you live in Texas, you already know what we’re getting at! Freezes happen, and in older homes with copper plumbing beneath the floorboards, a burst pipe or silent leak can be deadly for your flooring.
If a leak occurs under a wooden or carpet base, it’s time to replace your floors! However, tile can grin and bear through a disaster like a leak and won’t be part of your repair costs!
Tile is Allergy Proof!
Tile is more allergy-proof than carpet. It has a non-porous surface that doesn’t trap dust, dirt, or other allergens. It’s easier to clean and remove surface-level allergens. Unlike carpet, it doesn’t have fibers that hold on to dust and pollen for dear life!
Overall, tile flooring is a good option for people with allergies or asthma because it is easy to clean and does not harbor allergens like carpet can.
