Tile flooring is not only a good looking flooring material; it also has some excellent practical advantages that you may not have considered. Some of the advantages are:
- Well maintained tile flooring can last for 20 years or more. Having a properly cement backer board and maintaining the grout between the tiles will increase the longevity of the flooring’s life.
- Many types of tiles provide a high slip coefficient so it is less slippery, even when wet!
- Although tile is not maintenance free, a lot less maintenance is needed when compared to hard wood or carpeted floors.
- If a tile is cracked or chipped, you can extract only the damaged tile and replace it without it being an obvious repair.
