5 Benefits of Tile Floors: An Interview with Gabriel Hotupan of Just Floored

By Gabriel Hotupan

Please tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Our company was grounded in 1998. We started with hardwood installations, then we did sanding and in the end we expanded our work to encompass tiles, as well. Now we do all kinds of hardwoods and tiles flooring. We can also do the prep work required to have a specific flooring installed to the industry standards. We also do remove and dispose of eventual floor coverings and can move furniture.

Can you talk briefly about the benefits of installing custom tiles?

Tiles offer a durable and almost scratch free surface, impervious to water. Depending of location of the residence, it is commonly used in wet areas, like kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, as well as basements, porches, decks, etc., but definitely not limited to these areas of your house. Some people opine that it feels cold under the feet, but there is a remedy against it. That is radiant heat systems that can be installed under the layer of tiles which comes with a thermostat that adjusts the desired temperature.

What are the basic options that homeowners have when it comes to new tile flooring?

The options a home owner has in choosing tiles for his/her floors are basically infinite, depending on size, thickness, color, kind of material used to make the tile or stone type. We can definitely help the home owner make an informed decision in choosing the right tile for a specific application.

Is there anything that most people don't know about tile that they should know?

Most people in Georgia don't know that there are radiant heating systems that warm up the floor nicely. Also, since the hardwoods are so popular, there are nice types of porcelain tile that resembles a hardwood plank very closely, many people won't realize it's tile flooring.

Besides flooring, what are some popular uses of tile in a home?

Besides flooring, one can make use of tile/stone on backsplashes, matching or contrasting the counter tops, shower walls and even bathroom walls, sometimes ceilings. It gives not only a modern or classic look, but it is easy to clean and maintain.

Do you have any advice for choosing the right tiling for a specific room?

The tile choosing process is not very easy, as there are many types. A contractor should be able to help you narrow down your choice and even provide samples according to the specific application and room.
