Charlotte Pool contractors choose tile
Complete tile installation for your pool or deck is regarded as a premium finish for concrete pools. Tiles are desired because they are extremely durable and are available in a countless number of design choices. In addition to looking fantastic, tiles are easy to maintain and are gentle to your hands and feet as you swim and play in a pool that is covered with silky smoothness. There are two types of tiles that are most commonly used; they are glass mosaic tiles and glazed ceramic tiles.
Glass mosaic tiles
Glass mosaic tiles are increasing in popularity for both swimming pools and spas. They are also used prominently for fountains, wading pools, and other poolside features. Mosaics tiles are so popular because of their wide choice of colors. They provide stunning visual effects with hues that simply are not available with the use of ceramic tiles, such as crystal, gold, or pearl. They are available in small sizes which seem to be the trend for the modern finishes used in homes today.
Many swimming pool owners prefer a pearl version of glass tiles that feature a mother of pearl finish on the surface of each tile. When the tiles are viewed from different angles, the tiles reflect a rainbow of colors, bringing your pool to life. The pearl effect is obvious in every kind of light, even when the pool is in shade.
Crystal glass mosaic tiles receive their color from a ceramic glaze on the back side of the tiles. This means that you are actually looking through clear glass to view the color, which gives the tiles a three dimensional effect. Just like the pearl mosaics, crystal glass tiles are smooth to touch. They also provide a modern and elegant appearance to your pool.
Many pool owners are concerned about the pool appearance and wonder whether you notice the grout lines with glass mosaics. Although there are more grout lines, they are not as noticeable as with larger tiles. The best comparison would be the visual impression of a checkered shirt. You see the large checks far easier than you can see small checks. In addition to being available in so many sizes and colors, mosaic tiles are often less expensive than glass tiles. With many contractors, they also demand a lower labor cost while using less expensive adhesives. Contact your Charlotte pool builder for all the details.
