Artwalk Tile Order Security
Artwalk Tile utilizes the industry-standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption protocol to safeguard your transaction. SSL provides for a secure communications network safe from eavesdropping, and for the authentication of the server and the client. After credit card information is encrypted for transmission, the SSLHP (SSL Handshake Protocol) performs a security check and authentication before the transaction is completed. If the system fails to authenticate, the session connection is immediately aborted.
Most experts agree that credit card transactions over the Internet are the safest of all common credit card purchases. The National Credit Information Network confirms that most Internet fraud involves people presenting merchants with stolen cards, not people stealing credit card information from the Internet.
Internet commerce is fast becoming the preferred method of shopping for quality, variety and price. The SSL Protocol used by Artwalk Tile assures that your shopping experience is secure and confidential.

What is the Joe Ventura Flooring Rating?
I wanted to share the knowledge I have gained from working in the flooring industry over the last 30 years. So I established "Joe Ventura's Flooring Rating" Rely on this guide to help you select the best value/performance combination when selecting your flooring.
- We don't sell anything at this low of a grade so you won't find any 1's on our site
- You can barely call this stuff flooring. I have seen asphalt that looks better than this stuff - stay away.
- Use this if you are looking to replace the flooring in your barn. (Horses and cows love it!)
- This is suitable for industrial settings such as factories and warehouses, so if you are going for that look...
- Commercial - use this if you are looking to add a new floor to a fast food restaurant bathroom.
- You may recognize some of these products from your school growing up.
- These products are manufactured well but don't have a lot of pizzazz. Consider it a utility grade of flooring.
- Moderately priced with medium to high quality finishes. You would be happy with these products placed in high traffic areas of your home.
- Slightly higher priced flooring but with extremely high end finishes and selections. These things will make you look like you spent a fortune but only you will know the great deal you got!
- Best I have ever seen - worth every penny!!! (you won't find a lot of 10s on the site - they do exist but they are few and far between!)
