RUBENSTEIN’S DONATES FLOORING TO SUPPORT HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AND OTHER COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT ORGANIZATIONS
 
August 21st, 2014

E. CANTON, OH (August 20, 2014) – Rubenstein’s, a leading source of commercial flooring in the Pacific Northwest, donated eleven loads of flooring and adhesives to support community improvement projects in Washington, Oregon and California from April to August of this year.

The donations benefited Habitat for Humanity partners in Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, and Bremerton, Wash., as well as affiliates in Portland, Ore., and Modesto, Calif.. Rubenstein’s also donated flooring to River Valley Community Outreach Center (RVCOC), a nonprofit that works to improve the lives of families in need in the Sacramento area.

Mountain Re-Source Center, a nonprofit that seeks donations of usable materials to support the work of other nonprofit organizations, coordinated the donation on behalf of Habitat and RVCOC.

For Jesse Deason, Senior Project Manager of Rubenstein’s, the donation was a great way to benefit multiple communities while also creating additional space in his warehouse.

“We are pleased to participate in this worthwhile program, which allowed us to reclaim roughly 6,000 square feet of warehouse space and realize a potential cost savings on disposal fees while simultaneously providing a benefit to those less fortunate.  We would encourage any contractor with overage material to consider this program as a means to purge their unnecessary stock.”

Rubenstein’s is also a member of the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) and Deason is a member of its board of directors. NTCA is a longtime supporter of Tile Partners for Humanity, the partnership of tile industry members supporting the efforts of nonprofit organizations around the country through its parent organization, Mountain Re-Source Center.

Stanislaus County Habitat for Humanity in Modesto, Calif., used the flooring both in construction of new homes and in the restore, where the sale of material raised money for new construction efforts. “We depend on donations of good materials to build homes for deserving families,” said Director of ReStores Gary Torrijos. “We appreciate this so much!”

RVCOC Executive Director Mark Miller said there is always a need for quality flooring in his community. “The families we serve have very few resources and are always thankful for good materials that they can use to repair their homes and improve their lives. We work with single parents, veterans returning from service, and any number of families in need. On their behalf, we are grateful for the donation!”

Herb Miller, executive director of Mountain Re-Source Center, thanked Rubenstein’s for its incredible support. “Eleven loads of product can do a WORLD of good, and with this donation Rubenstein’s was able to improve lives in seven communities. We are so grateful that they understand how important it is to share good product and to allow their excess material to benefit the lives of those in need. Thank you!!”

TILE INDUSTRY MEMBERS DONATE PRODUCT TO TILE THREE HOMES IN COLORADO
 
July 17th, 2014

E. CANTON, OH (July 16, 2014) – Five members of the tile industry donated tile and installation materials to tile three Habitat for Humanity homes in Woodland Park, Colorado, in April.

Daltile, Capco Tile & Stone, and Marino Tile and Marble all donated tile. Merkrete, a division of Parex USA, donated thinset mortar and grout and Tile Traders contributed tile backerboard. All of the companies donated from their facilities in Colorado Springs, which is a short distance from the Habitat project site.

Two volunteers installed tile backerboard donated by Tile Traders in Woodland Park, CO

The homes completed a six-family project, which includes one family that fosters special needs children. Habitat adapted the house plans to make the home ADA compliant and said the donation of tile floors and walls helped them meet those requirements and reduce the overall cost to the family. The project was also part of a Habitat initiative known as Women Build, in which women make up the entire volunteer force. Under the leadership of Habitat construction supervisors, the women also handled the tile installation!

Tile Partners for Humanity represents the partnership of tile industry members working to support nonprofit partners like Habitat for Humanity and community outreach centers through donations of tile materials and labor. TPFH coordinated the donations on behalf of Habitat in Teller County.

The donors included members of longtime TPFH supporters Ceramic Tile Distributors Association and National Tile Contractors Association. Merkrete, Marino Tile and Marble, and Tile Traders are members of CTDA and Capco Tile & Stone, Merkrete and Marino Tile & Stone are members of NTCA. Daltile is a member of both CTDA and NTCA and is also a national corporate sponsor of Habitat for Humanity.

An all-female volunteer crew installed tile in three Habitat homes in Woodland Park, CO

Jamie Caperton, executive director of Teller County Habitat for Humanity, said it was an incredible experience for both volunteers and families. “What a delight it was to work with such generous partners like these to provide such a warm and welcoming home for our families during the Women Build Week. The ladies had tons of fun laying tile and totally look forward to next year!”

For Derek Richardson of Capco Tile & Stone, it was a chance to show appreciation to the community. “Capco Tile & Stone was happy to make a contribution to support Habitat for Humanity and the local community. As a long time local small business in Colorado Springs we feel it is important to give back to the community that has for so long supported us. Thank you Colorado Springs!”

 

Luciano Tavares of Merkrete said they were happy to participate. “Parex USA as a company, represented in this case by our tile and setting materials brand Merkrete, was proud to be part of the Habitat for Humanity project in Woodland Park, CO. Our facility in Colorado Springs was convenient and practical by supplying the right setting material for the size of the tile used in the project, including Merkrete 720 Marble Pro and Merkrete Integra for the installation of the glass tile. We liked that our facility was able to assist on a local level and knew that our donation was going to be used for a good cause.”

Merkrete donated thinset mortar and grout for three Habitat homes in Woodland Park, CO

Herb Miller, Executive Director of TPFH and its parent organization, Mountain Re-Source Center, said the project could not have come together without the support of so many members of the tile industry. “It’s only through generous partners and their desire to improve their communities that we’re able to support the work of our nonprofit partners. Three families now know the joy of home ownership and the value of beautiful tile floors in their homes. Thank you for your partnership!”

NTCA Awards Ring of Honor to Scott Carothers, CTEF Director of Certification and Training
 
December 16th, 2013

Scott Carothers, Ceramic Tile Education Foundation director of certification and training, has received the coveted National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) Ring of Honor for his service to the tile industry and to NTCA.

The award was presented to Carothers by NTCA president Dan Welch at the industry-wide awards luncheon during Total Solutions Plus in Bonita Springs, Florida, on October 28, 2013.

The prestigious Ring of Honor recognition is given to professionals who have made a difference in the tile industry and who have devoted years of support to the NTCA’s strategic initiatives. Past recipients include representatives from all segments of the tile and stone industry.

Carothers’ career in the tile industry spans almost 36 years. Prior to joining CTEF, he was owner of Long’s Tile Company, Altoona, Pennsylvania, for 26 years. He served on the NTCA Board of Directors for 12 years and was president of NTCA from 2003 to 2005. He was a member of NTCA’s Technical Committee for 15 years and was chairman of the committee for 5 years.

“I have worked closely with Scott Carothers since I joined NTCA in 2001,” said Bart Bettiga, NTCA executive director. “His passion for the industry, specifically in relation to training and education for the proper installation of ceramic tile, is unequaled. His numerous years of dedication to NTCA, his can-do approach to leadership and service, and his team approach strongly qualify him to receive the Ring of Honor,” Bettiga said.

Carothers joined CTEF in 2007, where he developed the Certified Tile Installer Program (CTI), which will soon reach the milestone of 1,000 professional certifications. In addition, Carothers has worked closely with other leaders of tile installer organizations to develop and implement the Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers Program (ACT), which takes certification to the next level and focuses on specific installation skills in unique applications. Carothers is well known for his dedication to bringing skills testing to locations across the U.S., allowing good, knowledgeable tile installers to verify their skills, acquire certification and provide industry-recognized proof of their professionalism.

Carothers noted, “CTEF’s programs are unique. Its curriculum is based on practical applications, ANSI standards, and the TCNA Handbook for Ceramic, Glass, and Stone Tile Installation. NTCA recognizes the importance of certifying tile installers and improving the quality of our trade.

“I am extremely honored by this recognition, and humbled by the fact that I am joining the ranks of others who have so tirelessly served our industry,” Carothers concluded. “Both the CTI and ACT programs build on the work initiated by previous recipients, and I look forward to continuing our industry-wide efforts to promote the use of tile in construction through the recognition of our skilled workforce.”

Color and Pattern Dominated the Aisles of Cersaie
 
November 4th, 2013

Every year, Cersaie provides a unique opportunity to experience new frontiers in ceramics for homes as well as commercial and public spaces. With an average of 20,000 visitors a day and nearly 1,000 exhibitors from 34 countries, this year’s show proved that Cersaie is a hotbed of inspiration not only in terms of interior ceramic surfacing but also possibilities in exterior cladding, quick laying and landscape architecture. Walking through the giant halls of the Bologna show, the most popular design trends revolved around four P’s: patchwork, patterns, planks and pavers.

41Zero42_U-Color

Color and pattern dominated the aisles of Cersaie this year, which is evident in a few playful collections including U-Color by newcomer 41Zero42, Mix and Match by Gamma Due and Type-32 by Lea Ceramiche, which is part of the company’s new Slimtech 5Plus series of 5mm thick laminated stoneware.

Refin_Frame-Up_Emilia Flower

Moving beyond the confines of a backsplash, companies introduced a multitude of decorative patchwork collections that make a bold statement from floor to ceiling. Continuing their collaboration with the Milan-based graphic design firm, Studio FM, Refin introduced four designs for Frame-Up that places an inventive and graphic spin on historical patterns. ImolaCeramica reached back into its own archives to breathe new life into 100-year-old patterns and traditions with Cento per cento and Imola 1874. Though not solely designed for patchwork surfacing, Memorie by Appiani is the first majolica-inspired mosaic tile collection featuring 12 geometric designs on 12”x12” tile sheets that can be mixed and matched to create a more playful setting. Honeycomb adds another interesting layer to the patchwork trend, which can be seen in Gamma Due’s extruded porcelain Melograno tiles and Settecento’s Matière collection.

AtlasConcorde_LASTRA 20mm

The concept of 2cm thick porcelain pavers began to sprout during last year’s show but has now spread like wildfire throughout the entire industry. Twice as thick as most tiles, they have the same benefits as regular porcelain – frost-resistant, skid-resistant, easy to clean – but their incredibly high breakage loads (up to 2,000 pounds) create the perfect solution for gardens, terraces and high traffic outdoor areas. The tiles can also be dry laid onto grass, gravel, dirt and sand without grout or adhesives, making installation incredibly easy. Mirage was one of the first companies to introduce this new format and now offers EVO_2/e with 10 of its collections including Norr, featuring a distinctively random pattern of pebbles of varying size, color and shade. Lastra 20mm is available with five of Atlas Concorde’s collections inspired by wood, stone and cement while Caesar offers Aextra20 with seven of its collections ranging from saw cut wood to rough cut stone.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shabby chic was another popular trend at Cersaie, which could be seen in tiles inspired by ancient stones, rustic wood and cement tiles with incredible color variation. A few standout tile collections include Pantheon by Century, Petra by Emilceramica, Barriques by Ricchetti, Old_Wood by Fioranese, Block by Marazzi and Memory by Cerim.
