The ceramic tile industry is booming, and that’s a good thing for anyone looking for a good quality ceramic tile job, according to ceramic tile company ceramic BBQ, Inc. CEO Dan Miller said.
Miller said he’s seen the market swell from about a thousand jobs a year to a couple thousand.
“It’s a very small percentage of jobs that are currently filled by ceramic tile, but that’s growing exponentially,” he said.
The ceramic barbecue industry is in a good spot.
The technology for ceramic tiles has matured and many companies are expanding to new markets, according a survey of more than 100 companies by Ceramic BBQ.
Miller and other industry experts said a big reason for this growth is that ceramic tile companies have been able to offer lower prices, which they say is a big selling point to consumers.
For instance, a company that specializes in making ceramic tiles for kitchens and kitchens-themed apartments, called the Green Kitchen, offers $100 ceramic tile for $50, which is a pretty good deal for ceramic tile in those kinds of applications.
“For a kitchen tile, it’s a great deal, but a lot of times it’s cheaper than other tile types,” Miller said, adding that the company has been working with customers to increase their rates and provide more customer service.
Miller said it’s also a great thing for customers.
“We’re a small company, so we’re kind of getting a lot from the customers,” he explained.
“The customers are really supportive, and they’re really happy with our products.”
For instance: A company called Tilesmith has been using ceramic tile as a base for their products for over 10 years.
They offer the tiles for $30 per tile.
The company is also offering ceramic tile with a variety of finishes for a low price.
“If you have an old kitchen, and you want to get a new kitchen, then the ceramic tiles are an excellent option,” Tilesman CEO John Hagan told Business Insider.
When you buy ceramic tile and put it in your home, the first thing that’s going to happen is you’re going to feel better about your kitchen.
“Ceramic tiles are the perfect finish for kitchen cabinets,” Hagan said.
“You can put a ceramic tile tile on your kitchen cabinet for a much lower price.”
A ceramic tile doctor will take your home and make it look beautiful, Miller said about ceramic tile.
He said a ceramic tiler will help prevent mold, and if you have mold, you’ll know it’s gone, as it will go away.
“We’ve seen people who have been having mold problems and have had to replace those tile cabinets, and it’s been a huge relief,” he added.
“So we want to do what we can to help people with mold problems.”
