Please let me introduce myself!
My name is Frances Halpern and I have known the owner of Affordable Carpet and Flooring Inc, David Reading, for well over 10 years.
We met at a networking group where we sat next to each other and have been friends ever since. At the time, I was a VP for TD Bank, and as a Business Development Officer, I was looking to expand my clientele. We connected immediately and I introduced him to my husband, Ray Halpern, who has been in the flooring industry for well over 60 years.
They have worked together ever since! The rest is history as they say!
I also worked for David some 5 years ago, developing his client base and doing some general HR and administrative tasks. Working for Affordable Carpet and Flooring was such a joy and after I had completed all the tasks required, I stepped away to work for local government.
Since retiring in March of this year, I was persuaded to come back to Affordable Carpet and Flooring to continue with the work I started as well as maintain this web site and blog and let the public know about the wonderful flooring choices that are now available. As consumers, we are spoiled with all the different products that are on the market and Affordable Carpet and Flooring offer a vast choice of options. This can all be done from the comfort of your own home, as samples are brought to you to select.
The flooring industry has changed quite a bit since I left and there are some wonderful new products to choose from. In fact, I recently replaced my basement flooring with the latest trend in the industry - click together vinyl flooring, that actually looks like distressed wood, has waterproof properties and even has a grained feel to it. With 2 dogs and visiting grandchildren, often spilling things on the new flooring, it is holding up well and is a pleasure to keep clean. Probably the best flooring decision that I have made in a long while.
Affordable Carpet and Flooring did an excellent job of installing it and it looks amazing. I will certainly take pictures and post my beautiful new flooring in the future as well as many more completed jobs on their books.
It is a pleasure to work with this professional crew and I look forward to blogging on a regular basis.
Watch this spot for information on trends, work completed, interesting design ideas and much more.
See you at the next installment.
