While we quite frequently explore the virtues of classical white marble countertops for kitchen, bath and accents, simple white is not the only option available when it comes to marble surfaces. Another popular option we carry is Bardiglio Nuvolato marble, which takes the traditional white options for marble and turns them on their head.
This is because Bardiglio marble is a more clay-rich metamorphic rock, though it is quarried in the same Appenine Mountain region that produce the sought-after white marbles like Carrara, Venatino and Callacatta. Bardiglio has the same gorgeous texture and finishes, and comes in darker tones as light veining plays across a darker base surface in unique movements. This darker base color can make a luxurious imprint on areas where lighter marble would not work, or can give an amazing contrast or detail to white marble or white traditional surfaces. With Bardiglio marble, you can get the sought-after properties of marble but do something outside of the ordinary. Read More→
As part of the Mohawk Anniversary Sales Event, going on now until October 28, Builders Floor Covering and Tile is excited to announce that we have new ArmorMax hardwood floor samples available now. Having these in stock means customers can explore this newest offering of high tech, damage-resistant flooring, just like we all enjoyed with the stain tests on Smartstrand Silk carpets earlier this year when License to Spill stopped into town.
ArmorMax hardwoods have the most protection that Mohawk offers, with an improved boost from Scotchgard to be the ultimate barrier against the staining and abrasions that come with everyday life. A heavy duty, built-in surface shield repels stains and everyday messes for long-lasting performance in your home, and has been tested to be five times more resistant to wear than the next leading durable surface. This also amounts to less cleaning, as the finish of ArmorMax removes the possibility for dust and soil to bond with the floor surface, so it stays looking brand new longer without all of the expensive treatments. The product is also under a 50 year warranty. Read More→

Schiatti tools have been around since the 1950s and have made tools for all over the world.
