Lawson Brothers Floors knows ceramic tile floors
With generations of the Lawson family dedicated to producing, installing, and offering the highest quality flooring in the St. Louis, as well as Chesterfield, Ellisville, and Manchester areas, you can be certain that the ceramic and other tile flooring that you receive will not only be of the highest quality, but that the service, from start to finish, will be above and beyond the usual customer service experience of most people. That’s because Lawson Brothers Floors goes the extra mile to educate their clients, and potential customers, on the types of flooring that they will be placing in their home. This is especially true of tile floors.
Not all tile floors are the same
Ceramic tile is produced by taking clay and putting it into
a mold. However, it can be placed into the mold in one of three conditions:
dry, moist, very wet. How it is placed into the mold determines how it will be
cured and will become the final tile. If it is dry it is placed under extreme
pressure until it becomes a tile. If it is moist, it is extruded into the mold
and left to air dry. If it is very wet, then it is poured into the mold, then
placed into a kiln (very hot oven) to bake. In either of the three cases, it
can become a porcelain or non-porcelain tile, which simply means that it either
has, or hasn’t, had a fine white dust (called Feldspar) added to it. The
finished tile will come glazed or unglazed and may have a matte or glossy
finish on top. Glazed tiles are idea for high traffic areas as they resist
stains and scratches better, and provide better traction.
