Our Story

A Family Tradition of Service, Value and Quality Since 1969!

Jim's Floor Covering HistoryHumble Beginnings
In 1969 and in their “spare time,” Jim and his wife Valerie started a carpet cleaning business. Run from their home, and dedicated exclusively to serving the rental market, the business quickly became a success. The boys still look back fondly on the memory of their mother preparing dinner with one hand and speaking on the phone with an apartment manager with the other.
They understood that in the Rental Market, low prices were just one of the many ways a vendor could contribute to their client’s bottom line. Prompt service, reliable scheduling and quality workmanship were just as important. Outstanding and reliable customer service is an absolute must. The determination to assist our clients in any way we can still drives everyone at Jim’s Floor Covering.

Growth Through the Decades
As a natural evolution in serving the needs of our clients, carpet cleaning turned into carpet replacement. Soon, various types of flooring were added to the growing list of products and services offered by the company.
It’s important to the family that our clients continue to receive the kind of service that Jim, Valerie, and the boys have traditionally offered. To that end, Jim’s Floor Covering has employed a team of well qualified professionals. Many have given their entire professional lives in the service to Jim’s Floor Covering and their clients. They are all a pleasure to work with and are committed to upholding the Cochrane family’s tradition of offering the best in service at very competitive prices.

“One of the most exciting developments,” says Dan Cochrane who oversees operations “is the growth of Vinyl Plank Flooring. No other flooring to date has offered apartment managers and owners the style, value and performance as Vinyl Plank Flooring. It’s exciting to watch a dated apartment transform into a modern living space. Best of all, we offer the flooring to our clients at very affordable prices, confident their flooring will perform for many years to come.”

Reflecting on decades of successful service to our clients warms the heart of the Cochrane family and the hearts of those who’ve been with us over the years. In fact, we still have many of the same clients we first worked with back in 1969. It is our hope that we can be of service to you as well.
