Home, Sustainable Home

The choice of building materials is important for sustainable home building because of the extensive network of extraction, processing and transportation they require. Recycled-content materials reuse waste products that would otherwise be deposited in landfills. And use of local materials supports the local economy and reduces the harmful impacts of long-distance transport.

Indoor Air Quality

Except for the walls, floors usually account for more surface area than anything else in a house, so they have a greater effect on indoor air quality. Adults, children and pets walk, play and sit on them, wear them down and breathe in what they emit for many years.

  • Most tile glazes are water-based and use minimal amounts of solvents. Once fired the tile and glaze are completely fused, and there is no possibility of volatile gas emissions.
  •  Our manufactured tile products have been tested and are compliant with the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Low-Emitting Material Standard.
