Tile in Batavia, IL

Batavia is a city of about 27,000 people located in the suburbs of Chicago. It was once known as, "The Windmill City," for being the largest windmill producer in the latter part of the 19th century. More recently, it's been named as one of the 50 best places to raise kids, ranked #56 on CNN Money's best small towns, voted as one of the Top 100 Places to live and designated as a Bike Friendly Community.

Winters here in northern Illinois can be rough. Snow, ice, and blustery winds are commonplace each winter season. If your family tracks salt and ice melt into your home, this can ruin certain areas of your flooring given enough time. Is it time possibly for repairs or even replacement flooring? Over two decades of experience has taught us what works and what doesn't with tile.
