Success founded on professionalism, hard work, honesty and family values!
Originally from the emerald island of Ireland and moving to Canada in 1989, Karl Moore followed in his father’s footsteps (Karl senior) joining the flooring industry in his teenage years.
“I actually remember being on construction work-sites much younger than eighteen, helping my Dad and having to hide under the kitchen vanity so the building inspectors wouldn’t see me,” laughs Karl. “I can remember at least on one occasion Dad getting a ticket for his underage apprentice on site! I’m glad he paid the ticket!”
As a professional installer, Karl honed his skills with hardwood, tile, linoleum, laminates and carpet. His many years of experience have allowed him to be able to identify premium products in the industry and provide expert advice on what to recommend to his clients.
Servicing home owners, commercial accounts and new home builders alike, Karl believes in treating clients like family.
Whether it is a request from a past client to stretch a bedroom carpet, lay hardwood in a new model home or supply and install flooring for a high rise apartment building, no job is too small or too big to handle. If you treat your customers right, they really appreciate your help and recommend you to their friends and family. “That’s what running a successful business is all about!” says Karl.
In 2008, Karl met the love of his life, Ashley, and the two were married on the beach in Mexico that same year. Ashley Moore (nee Henderson) was also a young entrepreneur and top sales broker with RE/MAX Centre City. Respected by both their peers and clients, Karl and Ashley work diligently practicing the same philosophy in business….100 % client satisfaction!
In 2010, Karl and Ashley were blessed with the arrival of their 1st daughter, Lilly Ella Moore, two years later, another girl, Taylor Rose! And if things weren’t busy enough, along came baby Claire in 2017. Family life has never been the same or never any better! Looking to the future in 2013, Karl saw an opportunity to expand his business into the retail side of the flooring industry.
“Northwest London was booming with construction and customer demand for flooring expertise was at an all time high,” says Karl.
“I realized that price competition from Big Box outlets was very tight but Moore Flooring + Design could offer the consumer the best of both worlds, competitive pricing and guaranteed installation service. This was not only an opportunity for me to expand my business but an opportunity for a better future for my family.”
With the Grand Opening in the summer of 2013 Karl has never looked back!
As the saying goes…behind every good man is a good woman! Not only did Karl have the support of Ashley and the girls but Karl was very fortunate to procure the services of a veteran flooring sales representative in Cathy Dykeman. “Cathy is my “Golden Girl”, chuckles Karl. “She is my administrative assistant, my top sales person, my receptionist and my personal time manager.” Cathy is, without a doubt, a big part of the Moore Flooring + Design success story, today and in the future.
“Over the next decade I look forward to seeing the business grow while continuing to balance family commitments” Karl says.
