Granicrete … Our Technology Is Over The Top!

Comparing Granicrete floors to manufactured tile:

1. Granicrete floors are superior to tile in ease of cleaning and maintenance. 
a. Our floors are completely sealed … grout and all!
b. Cleaning is easily achieved with a pH neutral cleaner like Simple Green

®. No deep cleaning for grout is required. The grout lines remain clean.

2. Granicrete’s custom stone effects are superior to tile. 
a. Manufactured tile yields a pattern of a stone finish. However, it is easy to pick out the pattern simply by how the tile is turned when placed. Picking this pattern out infers a fake floor.
b. Our flooring will not yield a pattern and will have natural variation and shading throughout.

3. Granicrete floors are superior to tile because our custom finishes can never be replicated for another consumer. 
a. Popularity of tile types and retailer pricing specials results in greater chance to have common tile being seen in multiple homes even on the same street. 

4. Granicrete floors are superior to tile because it is durable and repairable.
a. Manufactured tile is easy to break. It has little impact resistance. Replacing broken tiles can make for an unsightly floor as it is unlikely the replacement tiles will match the dye-batch of the original tile if even being able to be found at all.
b. Granicrete can be touched up and repaired.
c. Granicrete can coat over existing tile (not VCT) and save the cost and trouble related to removing the existing tile in order to achieve the new floor.

5. Granicrete floors are far more affordable than large tile.
a. Large tile is expensive as an item and become more expensive with the installation steps required to lay it. Many floors are not level enough to prevent the tile from teetering. Truss foundations may not be able to support the additional weight bearing load of larger tile which is often thicker and heavier.
b. Large tile goes up quickly in price. Large tiles have no price difference for us.

 

So if larger tile could be afforded, what dream size would that be? 
Granicrete easily makes
 that dream size tile possible!

Comparing Granicrete to real stone tile: 

1. Granicrete floors are superior to stone tile in ease of cleaning and maintenance. 
a. Our floors are completely sealed … grout and all!
b. It resists wine, soda, suntan oils, and other oils and greases.
c. Cleaning is easily achieved with a pH neutral cleaner like Simple Green®. No deep cleaning for grout is required. The grout lines remain clean.
d. Stones like flagstone will erode, flake, peel, and have their grout and mortar joints crack and break. This does not happen with Granicrete.
e. Maintenance is easy compared to real stone. A simple reseal if needed can be done between 2-5 years depending on environment and use.

2. Granicrete floors are far more affordable than large stone tile.
a. Large stone tile is expensive as an item and become more expensive with the installation steps required to lay it. Large stone tiles need to be floated into place. This can cause modifications to door thresholds and add excessive weight bearing loads. All these costs add up.

3. Granicrete floors are much more enjoyable as an outdoor surface. 
a. Granicrete has been engineered so it can be 30-40°F cooler than concrete and stone. It is much more enjoyable to the foot on those hot summer days.
b. If you have different hard surface foundations like pool decking and concrete patios, Granicrete can coat over both to create appeal and add the feel of a planned backyard paradise.

4. Granicrete floors are superior because of its immediate upfront savings. 
a. Real stone like travertine and flagstone can be $8-$15 per square foot. We are an attractive savings. Save money or have it go further with additional affordable projects that can be done.

5. Granicrete floors are superior because we comply with the food safety requirements of agencies like the USDA. 
a. Granicrete’s sealers meet federal compliance standards for use in food prep areas and are durable in harsh conditions like automotive garages as well.
