Dependability at Tri-City Carpet

In serving the greater San Diego County over 39 years, Tri-City Carpet furnishes exceptional products, talented craftsmanship and dependability one can rely on. These values have enabled this longstanding business to thrive throughout the decades.

“When people walk through our doors they are talking to someone who has been in the business for years and can get some really straight answers,” said assistant manager Tom LaVine, whose father, Tom Sr., and Uncle Dan founded the business.

Honesty has been the cornerstone of this company. And being on a non-commission status, said LaVine, means that their customers are respected and not pushed toward higher-priced selections. Doing what is best for their customers remains their motto.

“Tri-City Carpet is a full-service business which has done a lot of commercial, tenant improvement and residential work,” explained LaVine. “We do carpet, ceramic tile, laminate, hardwood, luxury vinyl and sheet vinyl.”

In other words, this well-established company has worked in every flooring sphere imaginable.

The 13,000-square-foot Vista location offers an impressive selection in both their warehouse and showrooms. Their main strong point, said LaVine, is its warehouse stock. With such a wide variety, customers are given a diverse price range which can meet their budget needs. According to LaVine, roll specials always provide a great bargain.

“We offer a lot of different suppliers and our prices range from apartment grade all the way up to high end; we have one of the largest warehouses in San Diego County,” said LaVine.

And for bigger cost savings, their sizeable inventory of quality remnants is the perfect choice.

Among their stock, Tri-City Carpet offer lovely large area rugs which can dramatically change the ambience of any room.

Over the years, Tri-City Carpet has handpicked their suppliers. “We’ve arrived at these suppliers over time and have figured out which ones are going to take care of you,” LaVine said. It’s experience like this that gives the integrity that Tri-City Carpet has earned.

Unlike a large box store, this family-owned and -operated business takes pride in tailoring personalized service. “In a big box store, people can get shuffled off after the initial sale,” noted LaVine. At Tri-City Carpet, their customers never get lost in the shuffle.

From start to finish, Tri-City Carpet helps their clientele every step of the way. LaVine explained that their business is to help people out and give them what they want. That is what their company is all about.

The staff at Tri-City Carpet is friendly and professional. With so many years clocked in the industry, their adeptness is unparalleled. Their talented flooring crew, said LaVine, has been part of the business for years.

Aside from impressive employees, warehouse and showrooms, Tri-City Carpet has a notable Web site. A tour of this great site gives Web surfers a detailed view of the company and its products. Its informative decorating articles add another highlight to this extensive site.
