About Us






Welcome to the T.A.C. Ceramic Tile Co. website.  We invite you to take a few moments to read about us and understand why we are recognized as the leader in flooring installation in the greater Washington metropolitan area. 

T.A.C. Ceramic Tile Co., owned by Tom Callaway, has been in operation since 1984. We specialize in new home construction and light commercial construction. We work directly with national, regional, and local builders. We welcome retail clients at our design center, but require them to call ahead for an appointment.  Additionally, so that we may meet their needs properly, builder clients will need to call for an appointment with one of our designers. 

First and foremost we follow a business philosophy that embraces quality to a degree that is rarely found in any business or industry. We believe in providing quality work by using skilled contractors and trained "in house", hourly or salaried employees. We train and promote from within, which gives us a greater level of control over quality and employee accountability. We devote the time and resources necessary for training, from proper step-by-step installation techniques to jobsite safety. Further, we specify and use only premium grade underlayment’s, backerboards and superior setting adhesives along with the proper tools for application. By combining well-trained contractors and company employees with the correct materials and methodologies, we achieve a consistent level of quality in every job we do.
