Your Best Flooring Buy Will Be Local – And Here’s Why!

Everyone does it, but not many people realize that there are better ways to purchase flooring for your residence, retail location, custom home, multifamily project, or common area amenities. If you are a homeowner, a builder, or a developer it may seem like the easiest thing to do, contact a big box store for your flooring needs. Some homeowners even call the companies with the vans that come to your house and they buy flooring out of the back of a vehicle. There seems to be a belief that these flooring retailers are somehow a better value than buying from a local company. But that is not necessarily the reality. We would like to share with you the top ways doing business with your local flooring retailer can help you with any flooring project, from carpeting, tile, hardwood and everything in between.


We’re Here, Visit Us Anytime

With a local flooring retailer, we work, and most likely live, right in your neighborhood. We have a vested interest in making sure our customers are happy with the work we do and the products we provide. We care about our customers and work hard to earn referrals and repeat business. There is no better compliment than having a new customer walk in our store and tell us one of our existing customers sent them in. Customers can come in anytime during regular business hours (or by appointment) to browse, make selections, or ask questions.


Knowledgable Sales Staff Helps Make the Right Decision

Choosing flooring can be a confusing process as there are so many different kinds of carpets, tiles, hardwoods and resilient flooring on the market today. How do you know what to choose and if it will work in the area you are installing it? That’s where our knowledgeable sales staff comes in. Because we are authorized dealers for many major brands of flooring, our sales staff is trained on the differences between carpet piles, best use of flooring types in any given traffic area, and the best underlayments and preparations for the flooring to give years of lasting value. Our customers find that when they have qualified help in selecting their flooring, their overall satisfaction is much higher and their flooring project provides years of enjoyment.


Authorized Dealer Status

Our store is authorized to sell the flooring products we offer. That means we have relationships with manufacturers like Armstrong, Mirage, Provenza, Bruce, Mannington, DalTile, Shaw, and American Olean. The pricing we provide to our customers is very competitive with distributor pricing in many cases because of our relationship with the manufacturer. We call this Distributailer pricing! Our customers get the best of both worlds – internet competitive prices, with the services of a full showroom and personal service that the internet (and big box stores) can’t offer.


Key Point of Contact/Owner Relationship

Every local business has an owner, and sometimes you need to be able to reach the owner of a company you are doing business with. Good luck doing that with a flooring out of a van or big box store. Our retail locations is owner operated and has been for over three generations, with over 50 years experience in helping our customers select the best flooring products and applications for their project.
