Northern Colorado Carpets

Treating our Customers Like Family

“We have always had our sights set on top-notch customer service,” said Derek Krasuski, Owner of Northern Colorado Carpets. “We take our job very seriously. We live here and our reputation is everything. Northern Colorado is our community, too. There’s nothing more important to us than doing a good job.”
It’s this very attitude that has kept Northern Colorado Carpets in business for nearly fifty years. The business was started in 1976 by Derek’s dad, Dock. “He deserves a lot of credit,” Derek said. “His parents owned a small carpet store in Loveland, and he learned what he could from them when he was growing up. He started his own business after college and look what it’s become.”  
Derek grew up in Loveland and spent his summers helping his dad with the business. After college, he joined the U.S. Army and spent the next nine years serving our country. He was a Ranger in the 75th Ranger Regiment for five years and Officer with 1st Bn/3rd Special Forces Group (A) for his last three; in his years in the Army, he had six combat deployments.
“After the Army, I was ready to come back home and raise my kids in the same place that I got to grow up,” he said. The family moved to Windsor in 2012 and Derek began working alongside his dad at Northern Colorado Carpets. In 2019, Dock officially retired and Derek and his wife, Amy, took over the business.
Derek has his hands in every aspect of the operation. He does everything from measuring jobs to staying abreast of flooring trends. Amy picks up the business management pieces, helping with invoicing, payroll, and HR duties.
“Our products have changed dramatically over the years as styles have changed, but what remains the same is the level of customer service we provide each customer,” he said. “My dad really ingrained that in me, and I’ve kept at it. Each customer gets the time and attention they need so they have a finished product they love. We will never stray away from that.”
The team is rounded out by their two sales managers, Melly Martin and Misty Hollabaugh. “They’ve both been in the industry for a long time, and they have a great eye for design,” Derek said. “Our customers love working with them because they’re good at finding the right product for each house.”
Northern Colorado Carpets offers all types of flooring from carpets to laminate woods. Their most popular products fall in the waterproof plank flooring category. “There are just so many great options to choose from and they look fantastic when they’re installed. Not only that, but they’re also really family-friendly. Kids, dogs, toys… it doesn’t matter; they don’t get ruined. You get the look of beautiful hardwood without the headache,” he said.
“The thing people love is our showroom. You can come in and see and feel all the options for yourself. This helps you envision what your space will look like,” he said. Misty and Melly are flooring experts that will help guide you through the process of finding floors that will transform your space. They also offer virtual consultations for those who are in the process of moving to the area.
Derek and his team manage more than 300 projects a year in residential homes and commercial buildings alike. Northern Colorado Carpets has had the same team of partner installers for years. “They do a great job, I’d recommend them to anyone,” Derek said.
When he’s not working, Derek coaches his sons’ baseball teams and enjoys spending time with his family. Derek and Amy have three kids, Presley (15), Easton (13), and Mason (9).
“We’re Northern Colorado people through and through. My family lives in Windsor, my parents are long-time residents of Ptarmigan in SE Fort Collins.” he said. “Northern Colorado is where we have always lived and the only way we’ve made it this far is by treating our customers like family,” he said.
Derek plans to continue his father’s legacy by keeping the business strong. “We send a big thank you to all our customers for their support and referrals. We want to be your flooring store.”
