hand-selected materials

natural stone

Where elegance and personality meet durability, natural stone is a preferred choice for any home project. We offer a variety of high-quality materials including granite, marble, limestone, slate, and quartz. Whichever color and style you choose, you can be sure you’ll get a timeless and beautiful result akin to a piece of art.


Caring For Your Natural Stone

Avoid Possible Damage
Splashes of acidic foods and drinks like tomatoes, citrus fruits, sodas, coffee, wine, fruit juice,
and even vinegar will damage natural stone. When you use a stone countertop for food
preparation, we suggest you use a cutting board and wipe any splashes immediately.
While stone is tolerant of hot pots and pans, you should always protect it with a
trivet. Use placemats and coasters under plates and glasses when serving on a stone
countertop. Immediately after each meal, clean the countertop before you go on to other tasks.

For everyday cleaning, use mild dish soap and water on a soft sponge or cloth. Do not use regular cleaning products that can etch the stone surface over time. Especially avoid cleaning products that include vinegar, bleach, ammonia, lemon juice, orange, or other citrus foods. Never use abrasive cleaners that will damage and dull the finish.

When water fails to bead up when it splashes on the surface, it is time to re-seal your
stone. Sealing will help prevent stains and damage and keep the marble countertops looking beautiful. You can find a sealant on Amazon or at your local hardware store.

ceramic tile

Because it has excellent moisture control and is easy to clean, ceramic tile is the perfect option for kitchen backsplashes and bathrooms. From classic to modern styles and everything in between, it is sure to add an elegant touch to your space.

porcelain tile

Since it is impervious to moisture and has great stain resistance, porcelain tile is often used to decorate the walls and floors of bathrooms, laundry rooms, and mudrooms. Porcelain features a through-body composition, meaning the design goes through the entire tile and not just the top layer.

encaustic tile

If you are looking for a colorful, unique pattern to decorate your space, encaustic tile may be for you. Made with extremely durable clay, this type of tile is perfect for indoor or outdoor applications. Turn your space into a piece of artwork!

glass tile

Because of the variety of styles available, glass tile is known for its aesthetic and versatility. Whether you’re going for a traditional or contemporary look, glass is perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, fireplaces, swimming pools, and virtually anywhere inside and outside. Make your space feel more luxurious and timeless with our glass tile.


Our granite slabs are a wonderful option if you are looking for something durable and easy to clean. Typically made up of feldspar and quartz, stone slabs give off a beautiful luminosity and dimension when polished.

Our Process: Ceramic & Porcelain Tile

Prior to Installation

The surface where the product is going to be installed must be clean and level. We strongly recommend dry laying prior to installation. Blending of the ceramic tile glaze is key to ensuring a pleasing overall look to your room. This will resolve any color or size issues prior to installation and will serve as a review of tile placement. We recommend all our tiles be installed using the prevailing guidelines as set forth in the TCNA (Tile Council of North America) Handbook and the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) specifications. Installation should be carried out by experienced personnel.

Setting Materials

For Porcelain Tiles, install with any high-quality adhesive recommended for porcelain tiles. This must also be suitable for the environment they will have to withstand. Fitting with traditional mortars does not ensure good adhesion. For Glass tiles, install with any high-quality adhesives recommended for glass floor tiles. This must also be suitable for the environment they will have to withstand. Fitting with traditional mortars does not ensure good adhesion. For Mud Installations, all setting materials and installation methods should be performed using the prevailing guidelines set by the Tile Council of America and the ANSI Specifications.


Sealing is not required for Solid Glazes, but it is mandatory for Crackle Glazes. We recommend sealing our crackled glaze tiles with a solvent-based penetrating sealer before and after grouting.

1. The sealer penetrates the fine hairline fissures in the glaze and prevents dirt and dusk from darkening the crackle over a period of time.
2. Sealing the crackled glaze makes it easier to maintain and clean.
3. Proper application of the sealer (wipe off any excess from the glazed surface) will not harm or change the appearance of the tile.
4. Reapply to grout joints and crackle glazes periodically as needed.

When water no longer beads on the surface of the joints, resealing is required. We recommend the following products and procedures: Once the tile is mounted on the wall and before grouting, the tile surface must be clean and free of dirt and dust. Use the FILA MP90 – Natural Look Penetrating Sealer (Available in our Price List) which is a solvent-based sealer. Apply an even coat of FILAMP90 with a paintbrush or lambswool applicator pad. Wait 24 Hours to allow the product to cure. Apply grout with a sponge, evenly distributing grout over joints.
