Our founder, Michael J. Hearn, is considered by many to be one of the best master carpenters in the business today. He consider himself to be first, a technician and master craftsman and second a business owner. He has been doing work in this field since 1985 and has established a national reputation forr quality, excellence and service. All our craftsmen are overseen by Mike who still acts in the day to day role of customer service. Many of our craftsmen have been personally apprenticed to their current level of mastery by Mike. Establishing the business originally in New England in 1985, Mike apprenticed under many of the “old time” craftsmen.
Mike moved his family to Atlanta, Ga. in January of 1989. The Hearn family has thrived in the area ever since. In 1994, Mike took a hiatus from his American business to fulfill a lifelong dream of doing mission work and helping others in need. Mike applied his skills and shifted his work to building schools, orphanages, and churches in second and third world countries. He, his wife and 4 children spent 5 years working with American teams and craftsmen from countries such as Romania, Brazil, Ukraine and Bulgaria. Returning to the Atlanta area in 1999, I.H.S. picked up where they left off five years earlier with some of the same clients. We have grown in a deliberate and steady fashion ever since.

We are Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) certified and members of the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA).We pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest technology and training the tile industry has to offer. Tile installation methods and industry advancements have been rapidly changing since the 60’s. Choosing a tile contractor that stayscurrent with these changes and new technology is important to a long lasting quality project.
IHS is not your typical Tile Contractor; we specialize in Kitchen and Bath remodel/renovation projects. We offer true value for the price and warranty every project which is backed by major product manufactures. With the client often driving the tile, wood, granite or fixture choice, one of the areas we can make a difference is assuring your choices are installed to Industry Standards and manufacturer instructions.
The products we use are different.
We have specifically chosen products for preparation, setting, and finishing your tile installation based on three criteria, impact, value and warrant ability.
#1. Make a smaller impact on the environment. When we choose a product that makes less prep, installation, and/or clean up impact in the home. We show our clients that we respect their home and their time away from a key area of the home.
#2 Add value. When we can choose a product that is superior to other products available in the market, we set ourselves apart, because long term serviceability and ease of maintenance adds value.
#3 Increases our ability to warranty our work. IHS offers our clients a 15 year warranty on our tile installation, which includes shower walls and floors against cracked tile, cracked grout, mold, mildew and staining when properly cared for. Our granite counter top staining warranty is the best available in today’s market.
