When a beachfront home built in the 1940s was hit by hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012, it was rendered uninhabitable and unsafe. Once the flooding receded, it was clear that it would have to be rebuilt.
Tile that Looks Like Wood, But Isn’t
Love the look of hardwood but hate the maintenance? Wood gives your home a distinguished warmth . . . until daily wear and tear starts to take its toll. Scratches, chips, and dulling spell time consuming and costly repair work, resurfacing, and resealing for your wood floor.
If you tire of the heavy maintenance and constant worry over your wood floor, there is an alternative. Tile that looks like wood is so realistic that you’ll want to get up close to make sure it really is tile. You won’t have to worry about moisture control, how you clean it, or the daily wear and tear of your family’s comings and goings.
