JACKSON, MS -- The National Tile Contractors' Association (NTCA) is proud to announce the acceptance of two of its members, Boatman and Magnani, Inc. and ProFast Commercial Flooring LLC, into the prestigious Five Star Contractor Program.

Five Star Contractors must complete a rigorous approval process, including 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 tile industry believes strongly in the quality of workmanship offered by NTCA Five Star Contractors. Many manufacturers recommend Five Star Contractors to their customers on challenging projects. In 2012, language recommending qualified labor and NTCA Five Star Contractors was approved and inserted into the Tile Council of America's (TCNA) Handbook for Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installation.
