Who we are

Learn more about our company below
Sherlock’s Carpet & Tile was founded in 1975 by Joe Sherlock. Originally named Medallion Carpets, the company sold mostly carpet and vinyl floors. In 1980, the company moved to its present location and soon became Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse.

Specializing in great values and “stocking rolls” of carpet and vinyl, Sherlock’s prospered from the Orland and Tinley building boom throughout the 80’s. At the end of the 80’s and beginning of the 90’s, Sherlock’s entered into ceramic tile, wood flooring and laminate flooring, just in time for the hard surface boom.

Carrying on a tradition of Honesty and Customer Service, in 1993 Joe’s son Marty Sherlock became president. Soon after, Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse had a new slogan, “Your Complete Floor Covering Store”.

In 1999 the showroom was extensively remodeled and began featuring Karastan Carpets with a much larger representation of hard surface products. In 2000 Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse became Sherlock’s Carpet & Tile.

Today, Sherlock’s Carpet & Tile truly is “Your Complete Floor Covering Store” offering all floor covering products and services including the area’s largest selection of glass tile, professionally fabricated granite countertops, and a hardwood flooring department that is second to none.

With our Design Staff we can lead any type of home décor project. Backsplash design is one of our many specialties. Whether you have your own installer or would like us to professionally install your flooring, either way Sherlock’s is there for you!
