Ceramic tile has been used for thousands of years. It is the ideal choice for homeowners who want a maintenance-free surface. “Creta,” the Italian word for clay, is baked at extremely high temperatures, creating a durable and waterproof tile. Ceramic tiles can vary in surface glazes, texture and strength. Surface glazes are often rich in tone and colors. Note that not all ceramics can be used on the floor – ask your Roma Tile specialist for guidance.
