Our Services


An extensive library of information

CTSI has done your research for you. As Northern California’s leading promotional branch of the tile industry, CTSI continuously compiles substantial amounts of tile and stone-related data. TCA handbooks and ANSI specifications, which constitute the practiced standards of the industry, are readily available at any time with your membership.

immediate answers to your questions

When you have questions that need immediate answers, there is no organization more qualified in Northern California than CTSI. Most inquiries can be satisfied over the telephone or with a prompt facsimile transmission.

educational benefits

CTSI will keep you informed of new products and innovative methods and technologies — including what will and will not work for a particular type of installation. A monthly newsletter, addressing various subjects, and including articles from the CTSI Technical Committee, will be sent to you. The CTSI seminar is held every two (2) years at a major hotel facility, CTA Program available.


consultations / inspections

CTSI provides pre-job consultations and job inspections at no charge to members. Members pay only the mileage and photos.

professional notability

CTSI updates and distributes current Member and Associate Member rosters. These rosters are made available to the general public, including general contractors and potential homeowners. Your membership includes a certificate of membership, CTSI Membership Manual (manual for mfg/distr., contractors only), which adds a new level of professionalism to your business for future clients.

entertaining social functions

Although CTSI is extremely dedicated to the promotion of the tile industry, membership is not “all work and no play.” Member functions such as golf tournaments, Bass Night, bowling, softball, and Night at the Races are just a few of the many social events that CTSI holds annually for its members.
