Flowood, Miss. -- The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) announced the acceptance of Northern California Tile and Stone (NCTS) in Sacramento, Calif., to its Five Star Program. Founded by Roger Leasure, president, NCTS began in 2009 as a subcontractor specializing in large commercial and industrial tile and stone installations. Since that time, NCTS has grown to be a major installer in Northern California and has expanded its services throughout Nevada, as well.
In 2014, NCTS set a goal to expand via training and mentoring employees on standards, stewardship, and overall excellence. In 2016, Leasure put additional training into practice and implemented Certified Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) programs for NCTS installers. CTEF certification is a total validation of industry skills and knowledge, offering training and testing essential in promoting industry-recognized proof of each and every installer’s abilities. These programs effectively ensure that NCTS team members are properly trained on quality workmanship, while continually raising the bar on all quality standards.
