Amtico Luxury Tile in Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland:
Much more than just flooring, Amtico represents a lifestyle choice for those who value taste, individualism, quality and easy maintenance in their home. Here at CCA, we’ve completed many installations of Amtico’s top-of-the-line product in homes, businesses and educational institutions.
Amtico’s mission is to be the most exciting flooring company in the world. And a quick glance at the vast choice of innovative ranges and designs will demonstrate that they may actually have reason to brag.
The technique of creating replicas of natural products like wood and marble was developed by Amtico nearly forty years ago. This art has long since been perfected and now Amtico has an unrivalled range of beautiful products that are much more practical than ‘the real thing’. The design folks at Amtico watch emerging design trends and create highly innovative flooring to complement them. No other manufacturer offers choices such as the Urban Metal collection that raises the design stakes in flooring.
Quality is at the forefront of everything Amtico does. They manufacture all of their own products to ensure that every aspect of production, cutting and assembly is carried out to the highest standards.
An Amtico floor is an individual floor. It is not a sheet material, but made up from individual pieces cut specially for your design. From simple to spectacular, you will be amazed by the possibilities.

More info on construction from Amtico’s website:
Along with its inherent beauty and integrity of design, all Amtico flooring features our world leading flooring technology: Amtico MPS (Multiple Performance System).
Up to 40% of the thickness of an Amtico floor is dedicated to performance, making it vastly superior to competitor products
Taken individually, each of the layers can be considered the most advanced of its kind in the world. Together, they give our flooring totally realistic aesthetics, unrivalled durability and unbeatable appearance retention.
Layer 5: The base support layer, providing strong adhesion to the under-surface .
Layer 4: The aesthetic layer created by Amtico’s in-house design team. This is either digitally enhanced photography to give our flooring its totally realistic aesthetics or our designers use a variety of techniques and effects to create our innovative product portfolio.
The remaining construction is dedicated to performance, and this is what we call Amtico MPS:
Layer 3: Performance Layer 2 High density for high resistance to indentation. This MPS layer is made up of very dense material which offers extremely high resistance to indentation. This allows Amtico to perform exceptionally well in high traffic areas and instances of high point-loading (high heeled shoes, chair legs for example). Amtico floors are a lot less reliant on plasticizers than other floor manufacturers. This results in a more resilient material and means that the product is less likely to shrink over time. Products with high levels of plasticizers also have higher environmental emissions and have a poor resistance to stain.
Layer 2: Performance Layer 1 Ceramic impregnated for improved slip resistance and durability. This Amtico MPS layer is made up of engineered ceramic particles that provide enhanced slip resistance. The particles also enhance the appearance of your Amtico floor, giving a more natural rather than gloss texture, as well as providing further protection against discolouration. Any direct competitor comparison will demonstrate that Amtico is superior both technically and aesthetically.
Layer 1: Top MPS layer Urethane Treatment – Super tough surface for scratch resistance and lower maintenance. The top MPS layer is the Urethane treatment. This is an extremely tough layer that provides a high level of scratch, scuff and stain resistance. Urethane treated floors do not need to be polished or dressed, therefore reducing the time and costs involved in maintenance. Our unique manufacturing process also helps the product resist the damaging effects of light, preventing any ‘yellowing’ of the finish.
Although cheaper alternatives to the Amtico multi-layering system are available, we are convinced that quality and performance are more important than a short term saving.
