Like stone, ceramic and porcelain, Alterna Engineered Tile flooring is incredibly beautiful and durable. But its comfortable surface makes Alterna warmer to the touch, kinder to your feet, and easier to care for in any room of your home.
Enjoy superior durability backed by our lifetime warranty — tiles are water, scratch and stain repellent, and unlike natural stone, they are crack resistant.
Engineered tile handles kids, pets, water, high traffic and everyday messes, thanks to a stain-and-soil repellent surface (grout included).
Elevate your home's style with stone or reclaimed wood looks, urban-inspired designs, patterns, unique layouts and wall features, to name a few.
A big downside of traditional stone, ceramic and porcelain is how cold and hard the tiles are. Alterna was designed to capture the natural beauty of these classic looks, while retaining warmth, absorbing sound and feeling more forgiving to your feet.
Yes, it's possible to get gorgeous, durable-for-life flooring in just a day. Alterna is faster, easier and cleaner to install than natural stone or ceramic tile — and best of all, less time and labor means your installation will cost less, too.
