Abbey Carpet & Floor of El Cerrito has been owned and operated by Ron Codron since 1974. Ron also makes his home in El Cerrito and boasts third generation clientele. People keep coming back and there is a reason for that. Perhaps it is because our customers rated us the number one carpet store in the Bay Area for sales, service and installation. This was the result of a poll that Consumer Checkbook Magazine asked their subscribers to vote on. Consumer Checkbook conducted this poll twice in the last 7 years and twice our store had the highest ratings. This accomplishment made the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle's Sunday Business Section February 7, 2010. Ron's sales people and employee installers are very proud of this honor for which we have worked so hard.
Abbey Carpet & Floor of El Cerrito has always specialized in residential service, however we also do a large business in the commercial and property management field as well as work closely with designers and have developed an ever expanding role at the University of California in Berkeley.
Our customers enjoy our beautiful showroom where the most up to date in flooring design from hard surface (hardwood, vinyl, luxury tile, linoleum, sheet vinyl, laminate and cork) and soft surface (an entire spectrum of lovely carpeting, area rugs and a wide variety of remnants and short rolls for those with budget constraints) all easily viewed in an organized and uncluttered environment. Indeed in the past some of our customers confided that our beautiful showroom was slightly intimidating in that they thought from the look of it that we might be too expensive. That fear disappeared as soon as they asked us to come to their homes and give them the benefit of our vast design experience and measuring their floors to give them an estimate.........all for no charge. Yes, unlike many big box stores and other competitors, we here at Abbey have never charged for these services.
Buying carpet can be confusing. There are so many factors that enter into finding beautiful products that last. It can be difficult to tell if the price includes installation, what the guarantees are and who's accountable when something goes wrong. You need to be able to trust the product's quality, the experience of the installation crew and the accountability and integrity of the seller you chose. You want to deal directly with someone who is empowered to make decisions, arrange measurements and installation, settle claims, make repairs and handle other issues that arise right there in the store.
To discern the right fit for the home and customer requires an expert service environment totally dedicated to flooring. Our independent, family owned and operated store offers you deep flooring wisdom and a demonstrated dedication to long term customer satisfaction, making us your trusted advisors for a seamless end-to-end flooring purchase.
As a member of a nationwide system of 900 plus independently owned stores, we have the collective buying power (lower prices) of a much larger company, but with complete local control and decision making. That's why each Abbey store is able to stock its own unique selection of quality inventory, appropriate to the needs of homes in our area at prices as good as or better than the big box chain stores.
We here at Abbey Carpet & Floor of El Cerrito have been serving the greater community of the East Bay for over 40 years.......you can trust us.
