Tiles & Pavers

Tiles & Pavers

Description
Description

Tiles, and related pavers, are manufactured repeatable units arranged in various patterns as floor or wall coverings. Crafted with durable materials such as ceramic, clay, metal, stone, wood, and glass, tiles are most commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms where it is desired to have easy to clean and impact resist surfaces.

Pavers, typically distinguished by their increased unit thicknesses and greater durability for exterior applications, are often produced in stone, brick, or concrete and used for roads, driveways, patios, and walkways. In conjunction with the variety of possible patterns available, tiles throughout history have also been used ornamentally to form complex decorative mosaics around the world.

History
History

Tiles and pavers have ancient roots, first seen in Mesopotamia and Egypt. For millennia, artisans used clay, baking it to form sturdy surfaces for homes and pathways. By Roman times, these pieces graced vast road networks and intricate mosaics. The Renaissance brought artistic flair, with decorative patterns and designs. The Industrial Revolution ushered in mass production, making tiles and pavers affordable for many. From age-old clay bricks to ornate ceramics, these elements have transformed our living spaces and guided our steps through time.

Future
Future

The future of tiles and pavers is eco-friendly and innovative. Think recycled materials like glass and ocean plastics turned into beautiful tiles. With the rise of smart homes, imagine tiles that capture solar energy or are self-cleaning. Pavers in cities may clean the air or light up pathways at night. Modern designs lean towards bolder colors, geometric patterns, and textures like 3D tiles for added depth. As sustainability and functionality merge, our floors and pathways will be both stylish and smarter.

Common Questions
Common Questions
What is the difference between a tile and a paver?

Although the words tile and paver are often used interchangeably in the tile industry, the difference between a tile and paver is usually determined by the thickness of the unit. Tiles are generally 1” (25 mm) and thinner, while pavers are typically 2” (51 mm) and greater.

What surfaces are tiles used on?

Tiles are commonly installed on prepared indoor substrates such as concrete floors, prepared wood floor, or walls.

What surfaces are pavers used on?

Pavers, unlike tiles, are typically used on both flexible and rigid exterior surface conditions where drainage and/or permeability is important. Flexible surfaces include compacted soils and graded aggregates, while rigid surfaces typically refer to concrete slabs.

Brickweave Tiles
Comparison drawing of the Brickweave Tiles compared to similar tile patterns

A Two Tile Brickweave Pattern is a pattern that consists of four tile shapes-a large square, a rectangle from the square being divided vertically, rectangle from the square being divided horizontally, and a square from a rectangle divided in half. The four shapes are alternated to create an offset weaving pattern.

Brickweave Tiles have varying sizes depending on their usage on a floor or wall. Wall tiles are typically sized at 1” x 2” and 2” x 4” (25 x 51, 51 x 102 mm). The typical sizes of floor tiles are 3” x 6”, 4” x 8”, 5” x 10”, and 6” x 12” (76 x 152, 102 x 204, 127 x 254
, 152 x 304 mm).

A Rectangular Basketweave Pattern (Parquet) is a pattern that consists of uniform squares, like that of a checkerboard. Each square is cut vertically or horizontally to create two additional rectangles in the square. The pattern is created by alternating between the tiles that are vertically cut and horizontally cut.
