TILE OPTIONS: More great reasons to consider Tile 

 

As trends change and flooring types fall in and out of favour, tile remain one of the most trusted flooring solutions over time. With the evolution of modern printing and manufacturing, tile will continue to stay in the forefront of technology to offer versatility and design.  And along with looking great there are other benefits that tile, and a tile finish can add to your new home.

 

Healthy Home

In recent years, we’ve become more conscious of our health and that of our family members, and at Signature homes we are often asked about the sustainability and health impacts of the products we use and incorporate into our homes. 

 

Environmentally friendly, ceramic tile is manufactured using natural materials and does not retain toxic chemicals, odours, allergens or bacteria. It is fire-retardant and in the case of a house fire, will not emit toxic fumes. Because of the base nature of the product, clay, tiles contain none of the chemicals that have been in the media associated with other flooring products and associated health issues.

 

Because tiles, by nature, are inorganic and have a hard-fired surface, they do not absorb dust mites and are completely inhospitable to bacteria, fungi and mould- a critical plus for those with allergies.
