NSI Accreditation for natural stone fabricators and commercial contractors recognizes those companies that meet the industry’s highest standards for business activities, product knowledge, fabrication and installation. The NSI accredits companies, not individuals.
To earn the NSI Accreditation, a company must complete an intensive, rigorous process that includes documentation of its business and employment practices, letters of recommendation, a written examination and site visits to the facility and completed jobs.
Brekhus is the only NSI Commercial B Accredited Contractor in Colorado, and one of only eight in the nation. Our high standards are achieved by using state-of-the-art fabrication equipment and a team of expert installers to ensure that every project is a work of art.
NTCA Members who acquire Five-Star Company Recognition status must complete a comprehensive application that demonstrates a proven track record of success in tile and stone installation and business management.
Five-Star Contractors are required to:
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, and in 2012, language recommending qualified labor and in particular NTCA Five-Star Contractors, was approved and inserted into the Tile Council of North America Handbook for tile and stone specification and installation.
Brekhus is one of only two NTCA Five-Star Contractors in Colorado.
The Certified Tile Installer (CTI) program is a comprehensive testing of the skills and knowledge of experienced tile installers which includes a multiple-choice exam and a hands-on test. Both are based on current industry standards and best practices for producing a sound installation that exhibits good workmanship. The tests require that both the observable and non-observable characteristics of a finished installation are executed properly.
