“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.”
Marilyn said that family and friends who visit her home often comment on how impressive the tile looks. “A lot of people come to my house and ask, ‘Who did your tile?’ And I proudly tell them about Ocala Carpet and Tile and what a magnificent company it is. I can’t say enough about Doug and his business. The integrity comes from the top and filters down to the employees.”
For 14 years, Ocala Carpet and Tile has been creating distinctive floors for the homeowners of Central Florida’s most desired retirement communities. The business boasts one of the largest selections of ceramic and porcelain floor and wall tiles north of Orlando. And it is one place you will find designer flooring such as Laura Ashley, Kathy Ireland and Martha Stewart.
Its reputation for quality craftsmanship and professional, courteous service has propelled the company from a 1,000 square foot store front in the Jasmine Plaza on SR 200 to two stores totaling nearly 15,000 square feet of showroom and warehouse. It has made Ocala Carpet and Tile the most trusted name for turning decorating dreams into reality.
