|Three tile companies donated tile and installation materials to Habitat for Humanity homes in North Carolina.|
Best of Tile, Neuse Tile Service and USG Corp. donated tile and installation materials to tile eight Habitat for Humanity homes in Norlina, N.C.
Best Tile of Raleigh donated floor and wall tile and Neuse donated thinset mortar and grout. USG, which distributes its USG Durock Brand Cement Board through Best Tile, donated the product for the full project.
Habitat for Humanity of Warren County has tiled two bathrooms in the first of the eight homes, which are in the Northwoods neighborhood of Norlina, about an hour north of Raleigh. Local volunteers handled the tile installation.
Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH) represents the partnership of tile industry members working to support nonprofit partners like Habitat for Humanity and community outreach centers through donations of tile materials and labor. TPFH coordinated the donations on behalf of Habitat in Warren County.
The donors included members of longtime TPFH supporters Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA) and National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA). Frank Donahue, owner of Best Tile, is CTDA's president, and Nyle Wadford, president of Neuse Tile, is NTCA's chairman. USG is a member of both organizations.
“Thanks to Best Tile, Neuse Tile Service, and USG, eight families will know the value and beauty of tile in their new homes. We couldn’t do it without their enthusiasm and support," said Herb Miller, executive director of TPFH and its parent organization, Mountain Re-Source Center.
