Offering a variety of flooring products as well as wall and decorative tiles, Floor King was founded in Austin in 1986. Known for its large selection, local vibe and affordable, high-quality work, Floor King is one of the most sought-after flooring providers in the area.
“We do everything from outdoor patios to indoor entertaining spaces and everything in between. All spaces are a welcome palette,” says Cain Scott, vice president of Sales for Floor King. “Our experienced sales teams can give you design tips to extend your budget while creating an updated look.”
An established, full turnkey flooring contractor, Floor King is family owned and operated, and works with many of the nation’s largest new construction builders. Whether renovating one room, a whole house or building a dream home, Floor King has some of the best buying power in Central Texas, with products ranging from tile and wood to vinyl plank and laminate to carpet.
“In terms of product selection, we spend countless hours meeting new vendors and reviewing the offerings of vendors we have worked with for many years,” Scott says. “We keep our selections fresh and on trend, but we won’t sacrifice quality for a look. We make sure every product meets strict standards for quality and durability.”
In Austin, Scott says that locals tend to be movers and shakers who seek a high-quality look with low maintenance. “Waterproof vinyl flooring has made a great impression in the market because it offers an affordable easy maintenance product in a variety of color tones,” he says. “Tiles that look like wood and large-format tiles are also popular options that offer timeless beauty and durability that will pay dividends when it comes to resale. However, carpet remains the most cost-effective way to create a fresh new home look.”
In addition to working with homeowners and new construction builders, Floor King works directly with many realtors to help sell or close a property. The 90-Day Pay-at-Closing Program allows sellers to upgrade their home with new flooring, either to meet or exceed neighborhood comps, and pay for the products within 90 days or at the time of closing, whichever comes first.
“We take the worry out of a flooring purchase, allowing REALTORS and their clients to prepare, stage and sell,” Scott says. “In addition to a large inventory stock and quick turnaround, we also offer personalized sample boards of our stocking selections in a range of colors and styles. If you’re looking for a partner to help your client get to the closing table, let us know how we can help with a new floor, either before the listing or after the closing.”
Since its founding, Floor King has grown and expanded, becoming one the of Top 10 Carpet One dealers in the nation. In 1994, Floor King joined one of the nation’s largest buying groups and grew to be one of Central Texas’ largest flooring contractors for national builders. Today, Floor King has three locations with another one targeted for Q2 2021, serving customers from Jarrell to New Braunfels and from Kingsland to Elgin.
Even as the company has grown, many of its original employees have remained with Floor King. “We have experts in every location that have been with our company for over 30 years, so our knowledge of flooring is unsurpassed,” Scott says. “Our installers are part of our family and consist of multiple generations in each trade. That’s something we are very proud of.”
