Although, carpeting still provides a large share of our sales, the trend toward hard surfaces has exploded. We continue to sell more wood, laminate, ceramic tile and natural stones as well as luxury vinyl tiles. Vinyl flooring has undergone amazing changes. With the increased attention on plastic laminate flooring, the vinyl industry has been affected. To compete with the laminate flooring, the vinyl manufacturers have created products that don’t have to be glued down, eliminating the need for underlayment and expensive prep-work in most cases. The patterns, colors and textures available in these products are amazing. The biggest change in the industry is the move toward “green” products and sustainability. Our largest supplier of carpeting, Shaw Industries, is now making products constructed with Nylon 6, a recyclable carpet fiber. Carpets made of this fiber are capable of being returned to carpet production. In hard surfaces, bamboo is perhaps one of the most sustainable products.

Professional design and installation is as critical to our business as the products we sell. We also provide professional carpet cleaning using Bane-Clene equipment.

WIENS HOME CONSTRUCTION AND REPAIRAddress: 407 S. Lincoln, Marion Phone: 620-382-3754 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Year opened: 1996 About us: We do some “new” home construction, but the majority of our time is spent on remodeling and repair. No job is too small and we strive to do the job right. We have a variety of window, door and siding options available to fit every remodeling need and budget. Having built six log homes, we have experience dealing with log homes, including repair and maintenance. Looking to 2009: We have additional replacement-window options and will be expanding into doing more work on garage doors and openers. We will be initiating an “annual checkup” program for your garage door and opener. Both of these are used daily and are usually neglected until something goes wrong. For a small fee, we will do an annual check, including lubricating and adjusting. Owners: Gerald and Jan Wiens Employees: 2 Hours: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
