While slate and ceramic tile are popular options because of their natural look and easy maintenance, most people don’t realize that there’s an innovative alternative that comes with the same benefits.
What Is Engineered Stone Tile?
Engineered stone tile is made of two materials: a composite of stone, and a polymer resin or epoxy.
The composite (also known as an “agglomerate” or “aggregate”) is usually made up of limestone, quartz, and/or marble. The uniform structure of the composite means that hidden cracks won’t show up in the tile over time.
Combining the composite with a resin improves the tile’s flexibility and durability. Since the resin is non-porous, the resulting tile is also much warmer to the touch, perfect for the colder months in Medina. This non-porous material is also far more resistant to mold and mildew.
