Our History

When you choose Virgin Carpets and Flooring, you’ll get a level of high quality that comes with over 50 years of professional business experience.

At Virgin Carpets, family tradition meets exceptional craftsmanship. Our story begins with Richard Virgin, a visionary and dedicated business owner who served as the CEO of Virgin Carpets and Flooring from 1977 to 2021.

Rich Virgin Jr and Rich Virgin SrRich’s journey in the flooring industry started at a tender age, working under the direction of his father as a flooring laborer. Even at the age of 14, Rich understood work ethic and had a passion for the trade. His early responsibilities included meticulously sewing the seams on carpets and lending a helping hand in moving furniture.

As the years passed, Rich kept honing his skills under the direction of his father. His dedication and commitment did not go unnoticed, and in 1977, his father entrusted him with the ownership of the business.

Virgin Carpets has come a long way since those early days. For years, Rich operated his business out of his garage, where he worked tirelessly to provide quality products and services to his valued customers.  Rich had his share of unexpected expenses and other financial challenges, but he never gave up. Over time, the reputation of Virgin Carpets grew, and the demand for their exceptional work grew too.

Thanks to Rich’s dedication and hard work, the business transformed into something truly remarkable. We’re proud to say that we have a partnership with one of the industry’s major suppliers, Shaw Floors. We couldn’t be prouder of how far we’ve come!
