The Stone and Tile PROs 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. Routinely, I come across a situation that can be challenging to assess and troubleshoot. Even reading the posts from others gives me information that may one day become useful on a future project.Blain Haeg, Gold Standard Floor Care
We have benefited tremendously from the [discussion group] forum. Not only have we been able to receive extremely quick answers to our questions, we have been privy to questions, answers and results to other issues that we aren’t personally working on. We have had PROS personally call us to give us even further in-depth answers and tips. The network has put us ahead of our competition in AZ and we are further establishing ourselves as true experts in this industry.Ryan Tonnemacher, Beyond Stone Solutions
I’ve been a Partner somewhere around eight years. The first four years or so I had no interest in joining the discussion group, sharing ideas and solving problems. This was mainly because I’m very resourceful and good at figuring out how to make things work on my own. After I joined I learned there are a few different ways to achieve the same result—some more profitable and faster than others.
Being a part of this discussion group has saved me countless hours researching and figuring out problems on my own that others have already mastered. It has expanded my service knowledge and profitability. Because you don’t know what you don’t know until you know!Tony DeLuna, Patriot Stone Restoration
The discussion group is great to be a part of. I actually consider it another tool that I have in my bag-of-tricks as we say in this industry. Being in the natural stone restoration industry for over 30 years, you think you have run across all the different types of natural stone and problems that may arise when on a jobsite. Then one day you get called into a job and low and behold there is a new stone being quarried and it is not reacting like any other stone you have dealt with in the past.
Usually I would try everything that I have in my van to correct the problem. Usually with success but going thru countless hours fixing the problem. Now I just contact the discussion group and see if anybody has ran across the problem that I am having and find out how they have solved that issue. You can actually consider the discussion group priceless when you are in a situation like this.Carl Staples, Classic Marble & Stone Restoration

We get 15-20 kitchens per month from our website alone. We rely so much on our strong position on the web.Dennis Dyer, K&D Countertops, Inc.
Excellent being affiliated with you guys!!!David Aardema, Set-In-Stone Restoration, Inc.
I get a lot of business as a result of being a Partner. The support is incredible!Roger Konarski, Restoration Stoneworks, IL
You exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with you and your staff. Thank you very much. I am very pleased... Thank you.Steven LaCasse, LaCasse Stone and Tile, FL
Being a Partner provides a lot of value for us. We continue to grow year after year with the great support we get. 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 member, I would never, ever expect such a good service and astonishing results for as little money as the membership is. Every year since we became a member, our company grew additional 25% (in deep recession!!!) with this year soaring to almost 40%. Most of that grow is a direct result of your work on my web site and internet marketing. In addition, every day we are reaping benefits from excellent training provided by John Freitag and Stone and Tile School. The partnership with Stone and Tile Pros and Stone and Tile School is truly a blessing, and I hope will continue for years into the future.Adam Bartos, Bio Tile & Grout Restoration, IL
