About Us

Our Story

In April of 2000, Joseph F. Capozza opened Old Port Specialty Tile Co., a division of Capozza Tile Co., with the purpose of bringing a unique collection of specialty tile offerings that include artisan quality ceramics, opulent glass mosaics and an unparalleled variety of natural stone tiles. For the first seven years Old Port Specialty Tile was operated out of the E. Swasey & Crockery Building on Commercial St. In 2007 we moved to 59 Middle St., allowing us to double our showroom size and display space. After a decade in our beloved Middle St. location the neighborhood had begun to transform around us and we decided it was time to do the same. The opportunity to move into the brand new Mason Block Building at 62 India St. right around the corner arose and it was a perfect fit. In August of 2018 Old Port Specialty Tile opened the doors to our new showroom. Here we are able to expand our product offerings again, creating a unique environment for inspiration and collaboration. Old Port Specialty Tile is proud to offer the ultimate tile shopping experience for all customers to enjoy!*


The team at Old Port Specialty Tile Co. strives to create an experience in which you can realize the tile design of your dreams. We achieve this by offering a wide array of options combined with exceptional design staff and superior customer service. From initial design to a high quality installation, we are passionate about transforming your project from ordinary to extraordinary.


Old Port Specialty Tile Co. is just one division of Capozza Tile Co., Inc.; a family-owned and managed business that has been in operation since 1974. The original company, Capozza Tile and Floor Covering Center, is at 267 Warren Ave in Portland. This location houses: a Residential Showroom which offers carpet, hardwood, vinyl, cork, in addition to tile; our Commercial Division; and the full company’s warehouse. In 2016 our family joined with a partner and launched Capozza Concrete Services. Located at 25 Dumais Ave in Lewiston, our newest location specializes in epoxy flooring, decorative concrete toppings, polished concrete, moisture mitigation, cementious underlayments, and interior & exterior concrete rehabilitation. When it comes to flooring, we truly have you covered from home to business.


*The India Street Neighborhood holds significant meaning to the Capozza Family. The store front is within walking distance to where Joe’s Great Grandparents lived and worked upon emigrating from Italy in the late 1800’s. Also where his Mother, Doris and Father, Joseph A. (our founder) were born and raised.
