We provide customers with a personal experience in renovating or modeling their new or current home. We have a large selection of products including granite, silestone, tile and much more!

What is your position at Tile & Granite?

My name is Paolo Vitale and I am the Owner of Center International Tile & Granite.

What are the benefits of being a family owned and operated company?

Since we are Family Owned and Operated everyone working here has passion for the company. We give customers more of a one on one feeling. We take time with each customer until they feel comfortable with their selections. We like our customers to feel part of the family and enjoy the process of changing their home.

What are the advantages of having a granite countertop over other alternatives?

Granite is a one of a kind natural stone surface that has a beautiful unique look. Granite will never depreciate in value and only adds value to your home. You will not find a more sanitary surface than granite, bacteria is never an issue with granite countertops. Granite is very durable and water resistant it can also withstand heat. You will never have to worry about accidentally placing a hot pan on your countertop again!

How do you help your customers pick tile or countertop surfaces that fit their kitchen?

At CIT & Granite we like our customers to enjoy the process of making selections for their home. It is fun to make these selections and it should not be a stressful process. We give our customers a one on one experience and walk them thru the selection process step by step. We ask our customers what they like and some customers know exactly what they want. We then show them the tiles and granite that fit their taste and needs. Other customers have no idea where to begin and we help them with this. We walk them through all the granite countertop selections and help them choose the perfect backsplash tile and floor tile. We work with our customers until they are completely satisfied and confident in the selections we make together!

What sets your business apart from other comparable companies? What do you do better/different than the competition?

We are family owned and operated and take great pride in our work. We work hard to make our customers happy. Customers get a one on one experience when they come in to CIT & Granite.

What are the most difficult kinds of projects?

All projects seem difficult at first when you don't know where to start. However at CIT & Granite we take time to walk each customer through the selection process. We work step by step with customers until we achieve the look they want for their home. We make the process enjoyable and fun instead of overwhelming and difficult.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you?

We can be reached by phone or email but the best way is to just come in and stop by the showroom!
