Shopping is a pleasure at Ocala Carpet and Tile. Since 1990, the company has prided itself on timely, professional installation, combining an unparalleled level of service with great products to deliver complete satisfaction and peace of mind for customers.
Just ask Villages resident Marilyn Lapota. Nearly three years ago, she and her husband, Robert, had shopped at various flooring stores before visiting Ocala Carpet and Tile. It didn’t take them long to realize that there was something special about the company.
“We immediately noticed that they had quite an impressive inventory,” said Marilyn, a resident of The Villages for six years. “And the way the carpet and tile are presented made them easy to view and choose from. We found that our shopping experience there was superb. It was low key and no pressure.”
Not long afterward, the company’s skilled craftsmen installed tile in the bathroom, dining room and den of the Lapota home. They also integrated decorative pieces known as listello into the tile pattern. Now, almost three years later, they’ve had absolutely no problems with the product. “They’re very sturdy tiles,” Marilyn said. “We thought their workers did an excellent job. [Owner] Doug Easters cares about his customers, and he’s taken the time to hire employees who share that philosophy.”
