Floor Tiles
A tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass. Tiles are generally used for covering roofs, floors, and walls, or other objects such as tabletops.Ceramic tiles are fairly easy to install. Choose them according to their end use. Ceramic tiles have one major prerequisite - you must have a smooth and rigid sub-floor to support the installation. They are not flexible and therefore can crack if installed over a rough surface or thin sub-floor.If you must put down a sub-floor, make sure it doesn't block the openings for existing doors. When installing ceramic floor tile in the bathroom, remove the toilet in order to lay the tiles under toilet base.
Backsplash Tiles
Enter any attractive, well-designed kitchen and your attention—not surprisingly—will likely be drawn to the finely crafted wood cabinetry or gleaming appliances. You’ll probably not even notice the kitchen’s backsplash area, that innocuous sliver of wall running between the countertop and upper wall cabinets.A kitchen backsplash will keep walls dry and make them look dramatic. Kitchen backsplash ideas can range from ceramic tile, solid stone, stamped metal, engineered stone and even plastic laminate. A kitchen tile backsplash is perhaps the most common choice of materials, but don't let that stop you from trying something else that might look fantastic.

Stair Tiles
The essential element of stair construction is safety. According to figures compiled by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, 998,000 people received hospital treatment for stair related injuries in the U.S. alone. Be sure to select the right tile for the environment in which the stairway is constructed. Be sure to include freeze/thaw concerns for exterior tile-work in areas that are prone to that problem.Unglazed tiles must be sealed with the correct proprietary sealant (recommended by the manufacturer) once laid. The stronger floor tiles are thicker and darker on their underside and often come in larger sizes. They are fired at a higher temperature (vitrified) so that the particles fuse together. This results in the tiles being almost unbreakable when laid.

Bathroom Tiles
Whether it's the installation of a backsplash, or an entire reflooring, an increasing number of homeowners are turning to tile as a stylish surfacing option when doing bathroom renovations.It's not only the bathroom tile that's important, but how you install it. You can pick a very simple tile, but install it on a diagonal or in a staggered joint like a brick pattern!

Grout Application and Cleaning
Kitchen or bathroom tiles and grout that were not originally sealed usually develop stains and traffic buildup over time. Our technicians will prescribe a cleaning prescription specifically tailored for your particular floor or wall situation.Carpacio Tiles can remove and replace broken tiles and grout with your spare tiles or consult with you to install completely new ones.
