FLOORCRAFT was started in May of 1989 by Marty Engel as a part time job that quickly grew into a full time job serving Property Managers and Realtors looking for quality carpet work at competitive prices. Over several years this expanded into all areas of residential and light commercial flooring. Marty Engel has a background in construction as a contractor with a journeyman Boilermaker union book and as a welder in the oil field of Louisiana during the 1970's. In 1986 he earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Orleans. While working in an office as a Junior Engineer, he started contracting with seasoned Tradesmen for carpet installations. After starting FLOORCRAFT, he worked with installers on the job for 5 to 10 years before settling into a leadership and management role for a crew of dedicated installers over the last 10 to 15 years. One of his lead installers and consultants, Mike Hopkins, a veteran with 40 years of experience has worked with Marty since his first year in business almost 25 years ago. Today, FLOORCRAFT provides floors and professional installations from Refinishing Wood Floors to installing the latest innovations such as Solution Dyed Carpets that can be cleaned with bleach and Luxury Vinyl Tiles that are installed with Grout like Ceramic or Porcelain Tile. His passion is looking beyond the scope of the job to the bigger picture by being sensitive to the needs and concerns of his customers and making appropriate recommendations so that projects go smoothly and on time with economic efficiency.
