Why Hire an NTCA Contractor?

It’s simple really, all NTCA Contractor members, whether they are Five Star Contractors, Certified Tile Installers, Advanced Certified Installers, or regular

Contractor members, all have access to

the most current and accurate tile installation

standards and methods available today.

If one of our Tile Contractor members is

working on your installation and runs into

any kind of problem or challenge, they have

access to live technical assistance from NTCA

Technical Experts.  All NTCA Technical Experts

have over 30 years tile installation and project management experience, and they are

members of many industry technical and

specification committees that create the industry standards for all types of tile installations.

Also available to your NTCA Contractor installer

are all the latest installation standards and method handbooks; the NTCA Reference Manual, the TCNA Handbook, and all the ANSI Specification Standards.


Tile Contractors that join the NTCA generally have a proven track record of success, can demonstrate their competency through professional referrals, and have indicated a desire to properly train and educate their employees by investing in NTCA membership.
