When it comes to superior installation of interior and exterior custom tile, glass and stone, we know how to build the foundation for your system so it lasts a lifetime. We work with all types of tile: glass, porcelain, cement, reclaimed terracotta, and natural stone. We offer floor heat, custom stone heat vents, switch plate covers, drains, and other unique products. We are happy to team with your designer, architect, or general contractor.
With proper care and maintenance, decorative tile will stand the test of time. Hawthorne Tile’s knowledgeable team can advise you how to properly care for and maintain your tile surfaces. We have the technical expertise to assess your “troubled” tile surfaces and advise you on the best practices to find real solutions. Consulting services are available.
Being a homeowner, you understand that to protect your investment a certain amount of care and maintenance is required. Tile and stone installations, while incredibly durable, are not impervious to damage from a variety of sources even when sealed.
Harsh chemicals and natural acids can etch acid sensitive stone and break down grout and caulk. Hawthorne Tile stocks and sells FILA – specialized cleaning products for both daily and deep cleaning. We can recommend the best cleaning and sealing products for your particular situation.

The concept of Universal Design, a term coined by architect Robert L Mace, is that the built environment should be “…aesthetic and usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or status in life.”
Our expertise in building highly functional tile systems, coupled with superb craftsmanship, and thoughtful design should allow you to live comfortably in your home whether you are caring for young children, an aging parent, you or your loved one has a disability, or you simply want to prepare for the needs of your later years.
Hawthorne Tile’s craftsmen are skilled in building custom curbless showers, built-in benches and niches; we install linear drains that allow for a gently sloping floor, and can create barrier free wet rooms. Whether you’re remodeling or building new, your space is expansive or limited, Hawthorne Tile can work with you, your designer, architect, or builder to create a bathroom to meet your accessibility and aesthetic needs.
