I don’t know a lot about flooring, but I do know a good company that does. I recently had all of my carpet replaced on the upper level of my home. Like most people, I suspect; I don’t know a lot about carpeting or flooring in general. I went to Exclusive Floor Covering in Highland, Michigan. I initially went there just because they are a Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce Member and I had attended a Chamber Coffee Club event there. Once I got engaged with Larry DeSmith, the owner, and his staff, I was sure that I had made the right decision.


Exclusive Floor Covering is a family owned and operate company run by Larry and Laura DeSmith. Larry is a walking encyclopedia of flooring knowledge (for those to young to remember, encyclopedias were the off-line precursor to Google in hard copy). Laura keeps the place running as the Office Manager. More important to me that Larry’s knowledge was his focus on providing the best advice on what I need for my home, rather than recommending the carpet that he could make the most money on. We quickly settled on the brand and style that would best fit my needs and that just left the color choice for my wife and I to decide. - That was the hardest part.


Once we had decided on what we wanted, Larry came to the house and measured everything. Exclusive does most of the cutting at their store, so that they don’t have to lay out big rolls of carpet in the driveway to cut it during the installation.


Exclusive offers a number of options for the installation services - you can do as much or as little in the installation process as you feel that you want to take on, with commiserate savings or expense. I chose to let them take up the old carpet, but I moved the furniture myself. They also offer a number of financing options,so that you don’t have to pay for everything at once.


The installation process was fast and efficient. I split my second floor installation into two phases, so that I could move furniture between the rooms that were to be carpeted. The installers did a great job of cleaning up the work site when they were done and the carpet looks great.


I can wholeheartedly recommend Exclusive Floor Covering for all of your flooring needs. Exclusive deals in all sorts of flooring, including wood, laminate, tile, sheet vinyl and more.  They also do wood floor refinishing. Give them a call or visit their web site.
