Ceramic Tile

Glazed ceramic tile is made from clay pressed into a shape by machine and then fired in a kiln. An amazing array of shapes, sizes and thicknesses is possible. The critical part isn’t the tile itself but the glaze applied to the tile before firing. The glaze, made up of a number of glass and metal elements, provides color and creates a hard, shiny surface.

Glaze is supposed to be smooth and hard, but for floors smooth and hard can also mean slick or slippery when wet. Most glazed ceramic tile for floors is designed to avoid these problems. The surface on some is textured or given a slightly raised design; on others the glaze itself includes materials added to create a non-skid surface.

Glazed tile generally absorbs very little or no water, making it both easy to maintain and mildew resistant. If the glaze is hard and scratch resistant and the tile properly installed and maintained, a glaze ceramic tile floor will last for decades.

Glazed ceramic tiles intended for walls are thinner, softer versions of ceramic floor tiles.  Because walls see less wear and tear than floors, wall tile often has thinner, less abrasion-resistant glaze.  As a result, glazed wall tile is lighter, easier to cut and generally cheaper than floor tile.

As with glazed ceramic floor tiles, wall tiles are available in dozens of shapes and sizes and in almost any color imaginable, as well as an impressive variety of textures and molded designs.  Matching border and trim pieces are generally available for glazed ceramic wall tile designs.

We are excited to raise money to go and give a family a home! The J. L. Remodeling crew is going to donate their time and money to go down to Honduras to give Joel and Ana and their two children a home! We are trying to raise the money to pay for the dwelling which is only $12,000!! In addition to that it will cost about $800 each to pay for food and lodging. We can do it!
