Hi my name is Robert Kerlin and this is the story.
In the late 1970’s my brother Mike Kerlin and I worked as carpet and vinyl installers for a man named Norman Bold.
Norman; nicknamed “Toad”, sold flooring from a general store in Foster Ky.
We worked for “Toad” for several years and eventually I was able to persuade a couple of flooring distributors to sell products to me.
Thus Kerlin Carpet was started with a $500.00 dollar income tax return check.
I sold carpet/vinyl from samples I carried from my van. In the early 1980’s with the housing market booming and carpeting becoming more affordable, I built the store you see above and on our home page. I renamed our store “KerlinBros. Floor Covering” and in 1986 added the end you see facing U.S. 27. This gave us 1800 s.f. of showroom space on 2 floors and a 2200 s.f. of warehouse space. I contracted and built the building myself; that combined with supervising or installing all of the jobs that are sold , I have been able to keep overhead low so that we can remain competitive in these very challenging times.
We carry hundreds of Samples each carefully selected, based on Quality Service and Price. Our purpose here is to provide a way for you to view them online , as well as compare specifications and to be able to find our price
