Ceramic tile is not only more affordable, but is also easier to maintain.
At Superior Floors, we are sure that with the many different stones we have available, you will be able to find just the right stone for your home and design needs. Before looking at stone, there are a few things you should be educated on. The first thing is that there are four distinct types of stone. These include Ceramic, Porcelain, Marble and Granite. Attributes of Ceramic Tile make an Impression on you…and your home. In our efforts to bring you Mohawk’s highest–level quality products, we put all of our ceramic tile through standardized industry testing and classification to determine overall performance. By establishing each tile’s specific resistance to properties like scratching, breaking, abrasion and moisture, we can bring consumers the most effective match for their surface needs. We stand behind every brand in our ceramic collections because you deserve only our very best.
When picking the right tile for your courtyard, patio or walkway, you want to be certain that the area can endure any inclement weather that may occur. Water absorption rate, which reflects the density of the body of tile, is another Mohawk classification we provide in helping customers make sound decisions.
The ideal tile set has a very low water absorption rate, especially in climates subject to freezing and thawing cycles. These are typically porcelain body tiles with a water absorption rating of less than 0.5%.
Whether opening a neighborhood eatery or simply preparing your home for hosting the whole gang, you need your floor tailor–made for its anticipated crowd–size.
We measure the durability of Mohawk Ceramic Tile by observing the visible surface abrasion when subjected to industry testing procedures. From these tests tiles are evaluated for wear resistance on the P.E.I. (Porcelain Enamel Institute) scale from 1 (lowest resistance) to 5 (highest resistance):
PEI 1: Light Traffic — recommended for residential floors and bathrooms subject to soft–soled footwear or normal traffic without scratching dirt.
PEI 2: Medium Traffic — recommended for residential interiors or normal footwear traffic with small amounts of scratching dirt.
PEI 3: Medium–Heavy Traffic — recommended for all residential interiors and light commercial applications subject to normal footwear traffic with occasional amounts of scratching dirt.
PEI 4: Heavy Traffic — suitable for all residential interiors and most commercial applications subject to high footwear traffic and scratching dirt.
PEI 5: Heavy–Plus Traffic — all residential and commercial areas subject to extreme footwear traffic and scratching dirt, where heavy–duty wearability is needed.
Using the P.E.I scale translates into great choices for your household like the Sardara and Mira Lagos styles of our Natural Collection, both of which fall under the PEI 4:Heavy Traffic rating. You will rest assured knowing that your Mohawk–tested floor can withstand the rigors of any social function.
