Why Choose TerraTile Clay Floor Tile?

Terra Tile specializes in selling kiln-fired, quarry floor tiles, crafted from earthen clay using an age-old process.

While this methodology has been perfected in modern times for efficiency and speed, the finished product stays
rue to its roots and delivers an authentic old-world style of floor tile at very reasonable prices.

In fact, the surface color remains vibrant even after years of wear and tear.  Additionally, the tile edges can be cut or ground down without any color change. Finally, since these tiles are kiln-fired, they won’t ever fade from exposure to the sun, unlike concrete floor tiles.

Because they are so strong and hard, they are scratch and wear resistant making the tiles last even under the busiest of conditions. With their low porosity, they can withstand the harsh freeze and thaw cycles from outdoor weather as well as resist the stains and damage from food and chemical spills.

Quarry tile is hard to make, so most tile manufacturers prefer to dry press their ceramic and porcelain tiles. It’s cheaper, quicker and that’s why there’s so much out their.

 

The most common way of making ceramic tile is the dry press process. The dry press method uses very little water in mixing their clays, so there is less shrinkage. They pour a slightly moist clay powder mix into a form in huge hydraulic presses to press out their tiles. The pressure used in forming these tiles creates tremendous heat which keeps the pressed clay tile together. The tile then heads off to be dried and fired...all robotically. To get the desired color, these tiles are then glazed on the surface so the color is really more of a veneer. 

 

Quarry tiles use about 21% water in mixing their clays, so the drying process is much more difficult. And the extruding process is even more challenging. Quarry tiles are really the old-world way of making ceramic floor tiles. 

 

Mixing the highest quality clays with water, powerful machines then extrude the special mixture into slabs of wet clay. They are then carefully dried and precisely fired to temperatures over 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Magically, as the clay bodies consolidate under the high firing temperatures in the kiln, the raw tiles transform their colors into beautiful natural earth tones including reds, browns and yellows with very low porosity. The result is a finely crafted floor tile that has tremendous breaking strength, is scratch resistant and can be used both indoors and out for both residential and commercial applications.

This versatility provides a measure of safety for all who pass over them as they are not slippery like glazed ceramic tiles can be.

"We had a large renovation project in our backyard/frontyard.  We found Terratile sent us beautiful clay tiles that our contractor helped us to install.  These tiles have weathered rain, sunshine and the occasional dropped hammer with no problem.  Highly recommend!"

"We needed a new patio for our dining area.  We are located near the ocean so we needed tile that would last and not get warped by the moisture/salt.  TerraTile has been a Godsend for this project and we are constantly getting compliments on the new look."

"If you want a floor to last forever, TerraTile is the right choice.  Quarry tile has been around for hundreds of years because it is the best and most beautiful floor solution! It is used in Historic California Missions and car showrooms, swimming pool patios and kitchens, both commercial and residential.  Our store has had over 4 Million visitors and every one of them has passed over an unsealed TerraTile floor that still looks like it did when it was new."
