If you are in the stone and tile business and are wondering if being a Partner is something you should do, run—don’t walk—to sign up before someone else grabs your spot.
Excellent experience and reasonable on pricing. Probably the first time I ever didn’t have to request revisions. And only took a few days. Completely satisfied.
The discussion group is a tremendous Partner benefit. Having the ability to ask advice, share ideas, provide input, and inquire with others who have unique and additional experience in the industry provides a tool that is invaluable.
I get a lot of business as a result of being a Partner. The support is incredible!
Excellent being affiliated with you guys!!!
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the work you and your crew have done for me and my company. Signing to be a partner, I would never, ever expect such a good service and astonishing results for as little money as the membership is.
You exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with you and your staff. Thank you very much. I am very pleased... Thank you. Damn, I’m happy.
