If you ever looked at a tile installation Pompano Beach project, you were probably left with a few questions. They probably involved things like cost, types, and sections, but mostly costs and why some material tile costs so much more than other tiles. Our clients are often also confused so we thought we might as well talk about it here.
So without further ado, here is why some tile installation Pompano Beach projects are so much more costly than others. We’ll be diving into tile types and what makes them cost more, so here we go!
The most important part in determining the cost of the tile is the use of materials in the tiles manufacturing. The most commonly used and available tile is ceramic, which is made from natural clay, sand, and water. These materials are molded to form a square or rectangular tile and then baked in a kiln to remove most of the moisture. Porcelain tiles are made in a similar fashion but are made with denser clays, increasing the strength of the tile.
Natural tiles are far more expensive in this regard for the fact that it is made using natural stone. They are usually made of lime, sandstone, granite, and marble. They are dug and cut at quarries, using heavy machinery in the extraction and production. Due to the difficulty if this process, they are rarer and more costly than regular tiles.
There’re tiles that are easy to install in a couple of hours, and there are truly difficult tile installation projects. The installation of these tiles will affect the price of the service in a few ways. But they are mostly based on the size of the project and the type in question. Porcelain and ceramic are relatively simple to install, based on where they are and the size of the area.
Natural stone tiling can be a pain, and if they haven’t been waterproofed or insulated it could cost a bit more to have it done on site. It is important to have them insulated, however, as natural stone tiles are porous and have the annoying habit of staining if they aren’t glazed or insulated.
Tile specific characteristics
The color and size and manufacture also affect the price. For example, while one product from one company might cost a few dollars, they other might charge you several dozen dollars and so on and so forth. This can be either due to the manufacturer’s reputation or the methods used in manufacturing. Either way, pay close attention to it.
