Home Ready for an Update? For a BIG, beautiful impact that’s also a great investment look to local, family-owned Burton Carpet and Flooring.

When you’re a homeowner, you know that your house is always in need of some kind of upgrade. Perhaps the outside needs a new coat of paint, or maybe it’s past time for you to remodel your bathroom.

One of the most beneficial and noticeable upgrades, however, is your flooring. Many homeowners don’t pay much attention to their floors until there’s a problem, but considering how much wear and tear your floors get, you should be looking at them with a lot more scrutiny.

Thankfully, when it’s time to make a change to your home’s floors, Burton Carpet and Flooring is here to help. I spoke with the owner Carrie and talked to her about her business and what they do for residents of Geauga and the surrounding area. Whether you’re ready to do something now or you’re thinking of new floors in the near future, you’ll want to keep Burton Carpet and Flooring in mind.

Flooring Solutions for Your Whole Home

When most people think about getting new floors, they either picture carpeting or hardwood. However, there are so many different options out there that it can be a little overwhelming at first. Here are a few of the other various solutions that you can get installed into your home.

Carpet & Area Rugs

Burton has a wide selection of carpets to choose from; colors, styles, durability, stain resistance, price, to meet EVERY need. Through June 3rd they are also running a special on their Shaw carpets with a 20 year warranty and zero % financing. Already have hardwood floors, but want to soften and warm them up? They can make a customized area rug to the specific color, texture and of course, dimensions for your room.

Tile & Stone

Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom, or entryway Burton has a wide array of different tile and stone in the designs and colors you want. Tile is excellent because it’s so versatile and lasts forever with a low-maintenance profile. Stone offers an authentic appearance and feel to your space, while being extremely durable for many years to come.


Burton offers both Factory finished and Custom Sand & Finish Hardwood floors. Each has different benefits. Factory finished flooring usually installs more quickly and without the dust and odors that are involved with on-site finishing.
Both are available in either high gloss or matte, On-site finishing allows for closer color match with existing woodwork or cabinets.


Like tile & stone, laminate floors are great because they can withstand the wear and tear of everyday life without getting damaged or beaten up too much. Best of all, you can get laminate in a variety of designs, including wood grains. Get the look of pristine hardwood floors without the worry that comes with them.

Years of Experience

When Carrie and her husband bought Burton Carpet and Flooring in 2001, they already had a few years of experience in the flooring business. When they took over, the options at Burton were relatively limited. Now, they can do any kind of floor for any home or business (yes, they do commercial flooring as well).

This experience is useful for a few different reasons. During our conversation, I learned more about the flooring industry than I ever realized, and Carrie showed me what the Burton customer service experience is all about.

On-Site Visits   

Although you can come into the Burton showroom and see tons of swatches and materials, it’s hard to see how it will look in your home. Tile samples can seem incredible in the store, but when you compare them to the rest of your interior decor, they can fall a little flat.

Fortunately, Carrie and her team can come out to your home and see what you’ve got going on. Having over 30 years of experience in the flooring business, she can figure out solutions and offer different options that you may not be considering.

Up-to-Date Trends

Another benefit of being in the flooring business for so long is that Carrie and her team know what will look best for the long-term. When figuring out the kind of flooring you want in your home, part of the decision will be to look at current trends, but you also have to consider what will seem appealing 10, 15 or even 20+ years down the road.

Unless you’re planning on getting new floors every five to 10 years, you want materials and designs that will be chic and timeless simultaneously. Fortunately, Burton has the options to make that a reality. No matter what kind of color or feel you want for your home (or business), Burton can help you find the perfect solution.

Burton vs. Big Box Stores

Most people don’t go to Big Box stores for knowledgeable staff, guidance or even selection. They sacrifice those things thinking they can save a few dollars. Unfortunately those few dollars often turn to pennies and an inferior product/service experience.

The folks at Burton understand the need to spend wisely AND they also understand how to provide the best value that works with your budget. If you are considering visiting a Big Box store it would probably benefit you to stop by Burton Carpet & Flooring before making any decisions. Their knowledgeable staff will help through every stage, from selection to installation. They’ve been around for decades already and since they’re family owned, they’ll be around for decades to come.

A Part of the Community

These days, more and more people want to shop locally. Working with small businesses in your area feels so much better and more rewarding than filling the coffers of another business not invested in and part of our local community.

Carrie and her family are not only active members in the community, but everyone who works at Burton Carpet and Flooring is a part of the family. Everyone from the sales team to the installation technicians is in-house, meaning that you get the best service possible every step of the way.  

Being a part of the Geauga community ensures that Carrie and everyone else at Burton provide honest, reliable results. They live in the area, they have children in Geauga schools, and they’re likely to run into you at the grocery store. Simply put, they have their reputation on the line with every job they do, meaning that the results are always second to none.


We didn’t want to forget one last important piece of information!
