For over 74 years, Floor Craft has built a solid reputation for quality products and services. They are the oldest floor covering store in Colorado Springs, established in 1942 by Lawrence (Larry) Strauch and George Hendrickson.

In 1953, Strauch bought his partner’s share of the business and renamed it Floor Craft. In 1977, Larry’s son, Bob Strauch, took over the business. He had been working for the company since 1954. Bob and his wife, Sheila, ran Floor Craft for 21 years. In 1998, when Bob and Sheila retired, Floor Craft was handed down to their four children. Bob and Sheila’s son, Mark Strauch, bought out his siblings over the next few years and is now the sole owner of Floor Craft. Mark worked his way up through the company, starting as a 13 year old warehouse employee. He went on to serve his floor installation apprenticeship at the age of 15.

In the late 90’s, Floor Craft became affiliated with the buying group, CarpetsPlus COLORTILE, thus becoming one of the charter members in what has proven to be a long, fruitful relationship.

Floor Craft relocated to 5855 N. Academy Blvd. in 2003, more than doubling its showroom and warehouse space. This enabled Floor Craft to provide a larger selection of product displays and samples and a more extensive selection of stocking items on location.

The company is on its third generation of ownership and has been continuously operating for over 70 years. This success is attributed to the great clients and long-term employees of Floor Craft.
