Local tile installation company Neuse Tile Service celebrated more than 50 years of service last Tuesday with a gathering of local contractors and industry friends. “We wanted to include those who have made this milestone possible – our great customers, our supportive community, and our fantastic staff,” said Vice President Paige W. Smith.

The business has survived the ups and downs in the area’s construction industry by focusing on providing quality tile installations whether for residential builders, individual homeowners, or commercial general contractors with multi-million dollar projects. Company President Nyle Wadford explained, “We ve adapted through the years on where we install tile, but we haven’t waivered on the quality of work we do. We’re still here because we consistently provide beautiful and long-lasting tile work, and our customers trust us to stand behind what we do.”

It’s not unusual for Neuse Tile to get a call from a homeowner who remembers one of the Wadford brothers from the company’s earliest days. They might only need a grout touch-up 40 years later, but they still count on Neuse Tile to provide them that family-owned service. “Most of our projects today are much larger, but we still love hearing from those early customers because it’s a tribute to our family and the quality of our work over time,” said Smith.

Neuse Tile Service was incorporated May 22, 1964, by founder Homer Wadford and his business partners. In 1967, Homer’s brother Al came into the business and soon assumed the company’s leadership when Homer moved on to other pursuits. In 1987, Al’s son Nyle took over as company president, and daughter Paige joined the company in 1995. Today, the siblings lead North Carolina’s only residential 5-Star Contractor recognized by the National Tile Contractors Association.


Neuse Tile Service is located in Youngsville and installs ceramic, glass, stone and quarry tile in residential and commercial projects throughout the Triangle. Sponsors of the celebration event were: Best Tile of Raleigh, Mosaic Tile Company, Florida Tile, and Laticrete.
