The Stinson Story

West Virginia-born Al Stinson knew about commitment and hard work even as a young man. Upon graduating from high school he enlisted in the army and proudly served his three year term. His family's relocation to Central Florida in the late 1950's prompted him to find work in the area. In 1968, with some furniture sales experience under his belt, he and young wife, Pat, took a chance and gambled on opening their own carpet store in Orlando, "Stinson Carpets." With one location and a handful of employees, Al Stinson was committed to making the customer first. The positive word about the reputable family floor covering store spread around "town" and eventually grew to three locations by the mid 1980's. Stinson Carpets earned a solid reputation with its customers with its commitment to the customer offering quality products with professional service.

The family business was a great place for son Mark to work after high school, helping in the warehouse and with deliveries and installations. Unlike his dad, Mark had the good fortune of being raised in the business, learning it from every angle. His experience and a determination to be the best flooring dealer in the area enabled Stinson Carpets to take on new ventures. In 1992, Stinson Carpets joined the largest floor covering co-op in the world, "Carpet One," and hence became "STINSON CARPET ONE FLOOR & HOME®. " About the same time, retail flooring represented only a part of the business, as commercial accounts like the University of Central Florida, the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority and the Orange County Courthouse were added to the customer base. Never sacrificing customer service and quality installation, STINSON CARPET ONE FLOOR & HOME® expanded its expertise into the new home construction market for both the mass production builder and the smaller custom home builder. No longer is the company limited to the Orlando area as it now services accounts from Ocala to Deltona to Kissimmee and Clermont. From its beginnings of one store and a handful of employees, STINSON CARPET ONE FLOOR & HOME® now employees around 20 full time employees and over 25 licensed installation contractors at its multiple locations.

Now in the second generation of management, STINSON CARPET ONE FLOOR & HOME® understands the value of the family business owner in our country and is committed to bringing excellence to every experience from the selection process, to the installation. to the warranty procedure. We specialize in what customers want and deserve: honest, affordable and dependable service; knowledgeable salespeople trained in their products; guaranteed installation by certified, professional installers; and extended financing terms to qualified applicants.
