In a coastal environment like West Palm Beach, your floors need to be able to stand up to the elements. Water, sand, and the sun can damage some floors, but when it comes to tile, granite is nearly indestructible. The beauty and durability of granite tile make it a great flooring option for homeowners. If you are considering granite for your home, here are a few things the Floor Coverings International Jupiter experts think you should know.
About Granite Tile
Granite is a type of natural stone that also happens to be one of the hardest substances on earth. It comes in a wide variety of colors with different patterns, depending on its mineral content. The unique look of granite is one of the reasons it is so beautiful and desirable. Its durability also makes it virtually impervious to dents, scratches, and extreme temperatures, so it can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments.
For the most part, granite is easy to care for. If a spill occurs, a quick mop is all that’s needed to clean up your floors. Granite tile can also be swept or vacuumed on a regular basis. However, if your granite will be coming into contact with a lot of water, it should be sealed properly – granite is porous, so too much moisture can etch and dull its surface.
Granite can be pricey, so it’s not the best option for West Palm Beach homeowners on a tight budget. The cost of regularly resealing it can also add up. However, granite does offer a great value since it promises to last for many years while adding a luxurious look to your home.
