The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) announced the acceptance of two of its members, The Stuart Company and D.W. Sanders Tile and Stone Contracting, as Five-Star Contractors. To obtain Five Star certification, contractors must be a member of NTCA and complete an application process that includes submitting examples of work, reviews and recommendations from peers and customers, and proven commitment to service, quality, safety and superior job performance. Five Star Contractors are also required to certify a minimum of 10% of their installers through the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) Certified Tile Installer program or ACT certification for installers.

The Stuart Company is a professional tile and flooring installation company based out of Macomb, Mich., installing mostly commercial projects, specializing in assisted living facilities, car dealerships, and large commercial, as well as some residential projects. The company prides itself on its ability to complete projects with very difficult time schedules, but not compromising quality by cutting corners.

D.W. Sanders Tile and Stone, of Marietta, Ga., has been in business since 1994 and works by the motto, “Craftsmanship by the standards.” The company specializes in large residential stone and tile projects in both new and remodeling sectors, and specialty cladding projects.

“We believe that by being a Five Star Contractor member, we have set a high standard for the company and the employees,” said Woody Sanders, founder of D.W. Sanders. “For our employees to learn and work alongside other Five Star Contractors, will only make us a stronger and more profitable contractor.”
