Hany Louis: Tile Royalty
“Hearing customers rave about how much they love our team, our service and the quality of our work brings me a real sense of satisfaction.”

SANTA CLARA − The son of a general contractor, Hany Louis has been immersed in the construction and remodeling trades since childhood. When it came time for him to choose his own professional path, however, he decided on an industry niche that would not only utilize his knowledge and experience, but feed his artistic side as well. “Out of all the trades, tile work is one of the most versatile and artistic, which is why I think it appealed to me so much,” he explains. “With most other trades, there’s either a right way or a wrong way of doing things, but when it comes to tile work, there are all kinds of right.”

Hany founded The Tile & Grout King Inc. in 2007, and he says he still appreciates the artistic attributes that characterize his craft, particularly working with designs and collaborating with customers on ideas. He also derives fulfillment from the positive feedback he receives from satisfied clients. “Our reviews are foundational to the success of our company,” he affirms. “Hearing customers rave about how much they love our team, our service and the quality of our work brings me a real sense of satisfaction.”

A resident of Santa Clara—where he lives with wife, Michelle, and son, Jordan—Hany says he appreciates the cultural climate that distinguishes the region. “Besides being a nice, classy area, the Silicon Valley is an exciting place to live. What better place to be than in the midst of the technology capital of the world?”

Outside of work, Hany enjoys participating in activities that combine recreation and exercise. “I’m not a fan of working out, simply because I don’t enjoy the repetitive nature of it, so I stay in shape by playing competitive sports like volleyball.” Additionally, Hany and his family enjoy going on winter snowboarding excursions at various Lake Tahoe resorts.

In his life and career, Hany emphasizes the value of prioritizing family. “I think it’s important to put your family first, because once you understand the value of family, it guides you in other aspects of your life,” he explains. “This is something I’ve learned from experience, having become a father while still in high school. My son is the reason I turned my life around—he motivated me to complete my education and start my business, and I don’t think I’d be here if it wasn’t for him.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he could retire tomorrow, Hany says he’d take his snowboarding hobby to an international level. “I’d definitely do some traveling. I’d love to just tour the world and find some new snowboarding spots along the way!”
