S & D Tile is a commercial tile installation company based in Minneapolis, serving the Twin Cities metro. In 2009, we built this business on the foundation of hard work, relationships and loyalty. Fast forward 10 years, and that foundation still holds strong. We’ve grown the company to 15 skilled employees, meaning we are up for the challenge of any job, large or small. Everyone on our team is Porcelain Thin Panel trained and experienced in a wide variety of installation techniques.
At S & D Tile, we are proud of our dedicated team and we take their safety very seriously. Our team receives ongoing safety training and guidance to protect not only themselves, but everyone else on the job site.
We take great pride in getting the job done on time and within budget, all while not only meeting but exceeding our customers’ expectations. And it doesn’t stop there; we are committed to building relationships and earning your repeat business and referrals.
We are Sam and Derek, owners of S & D Tile. We have spent the last two decades in the tile field. We’ve worked closely together for most of that time, on jobs together and then starting our own business in 2009. We have the technical skills and know-how to get even the most challenging jobs done. But running a successful business requires more than the technical aspects. Sam’s knowledge and experience led him to teach as a tile instructor, where he honed his communication and leadership skills. We also both received leadership training and developed excellent project management skills to make sure the job gets done correctly, on time and within budget.
Our interest in owning our own business began because we felt that as business owners, we could treat our own employees more fairly that we ourselves had been treated. Paying our employees a fair wage based on performance, talent and loyalty, rather than simply based on number of years in the field is important to us. We know how we want to treat our own employees, and rewarding our employees for a job well done is an important part of our company culture.
