H2OME Exquisite Tile

There are so many options on the market for outdoor pavers that it can be a challenge to decide on a material that is durable, easy to install, and low maintenance. Not only must these materials be able to withstand the wear and tear of daily foot traffic, but also the strain of Charleston’s extreme outdoor elements. Concrete, brick, and other kinds of stone have been design favorites for years, but these materials are not always affordable or simple to install and can often require additional treatments to weather the elements. Florim USA has recently introduced a new porcelain tile product, available at Palmetto Tile Distributors, which solves many of these common conundrums. The tile is formed from a combination of quartz, clay, and feldspar joined together at temperatures exceeding two thousand degrees. The resulting material resists damage from foot traffic, chemicals, frost, mold, moss, stains, and corrosion. The tiles are also easy to install, anti-slip and come in a variety of stone and wood-like finishes that can solve nearly any design dilemma. For more Information:
