The Golden Rule

If there’s one thing Shayne Sanders knows, it’s that integrity and success go hand in hand. In a time when life can be a bit stressful and uncertain, it’s comforting to know that some companies still live by the Golden Rule — to treat others as you would like to be treated. That’s why the professionals at Shayne Sanders Tile work to exceed all expectations when dealing with clients, whether commercial or private.

“We’re not a fly-by-night company,” says Director of Operations Barbara Sanders. “We’re rooted here in Ocala and we’re here to stay.”

With three generations still living in Ocala, the Sanders family intends to raise their three children surrounded by loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.

“Because we love this area so much, it’s important for us to stand by our product,” says Owner Shayne Sanders. “Clients can count on us to provide a written bid, do quality installations, and warranty our work.”

Shayne and his team understand that times are tough in the world of construction right now, and are doing their part to make sure they work within a client’s budget.

“Whether you’re a builder or a private person, tell us your budget,” Shayne says. “If a client says ‘this is where we need to be to get the job done,’ then we’ll do our best to match that price—while never cutting back on our guarantee of quality, efficient work.”

Mindy and Greg Kiker of Gainesville agree.

“We interviewed nine tile installers before we met Remy with Shayne Sanders Tile,” Mindy says. “He was by far the most artistic and creative. He and Shayne’s ideas were so different than anything we’ve seen before. Tile is not boring with Shayne Sanders.”

Mindy and Greg have the same 18-by-18 tile throughout their home, but each room features a distinct design and look thanks to Remy’s imagination and skill.

“The tile in our home has a harmonious feel since it’s the same tile, but each room is definitely different. People always ooh and aah when they come over. It’s very impressive what they can and will do with a piece of square tile.”

Of course, Mindy also compliments the company on their customer service skills and attitude.

“You can have someone who ultimately does a good job, but then isn’t available for questions or suggestions. The people at Shayne Sanders were always available and responded very quickly. They made sure our satisfaction was their number-one goal.”

Shayne started out in the tile business fresh out of high school. Over time, he built a name for himself and started his own successful company. As a matter of fact, he and his team do much of the new construction tile work for local builders Armstrong Homes and Ecclestone Signature Homes.

“Shayne and his staff are willing to do whatever is asked of them to get the job done right,” says Sherrie Barnett, design studio manager for Ecclestone Signature Homes. “They will work weekends and late hours to get a job done in a timely fashion and the quality of work, whether it’s a simple or ornate design, is excellent.”

Sherrie adds that Shayne, who recently completed the tile work on Ecclestone’s Parade of Homes entry, is “a true gentleman,” a character trait that’s often hard to come by these days.

“Overall, they’re just very honest people,” Sherrie says. “They make it easy to do business with them.”

While tile, including floors, ceilings, backsplashes, inlays, patterns, and more, is an area of expertise, Shayne Sanders Tile is capable of doing so much more.

“We install and provide products of all kinds,” says Shayne. “Wood, travertine, Egyptian marble, stone, paver drive and walkways, and carpet are just a few of the other areas we specialize in.”

As an added convenience, the pros at Shayne Sanders Tile will even bring their showroom to the client.

“We’ll bring the samples to your home or business,” Barbara says. “Shayne also enjoys going through magazine or book photos to get ideas from clients. He’s even been known to take a trip to Lowe’s with a customer to look at a product firsthand.”

That’s customer service at its finest. Speaking of customer service, there is no middleman when dealing with Shayne Sanders Tile. Shayne and Barbara, in an effort to remain in touch with their clients, make themselves readily available to each client, providing them with personal cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

“We’re only a phone call away if you have questions or concerns,” Barbara says. “We don’t hide behind secretaries or voicemail.”
