About Sherlock's Carpet & Tile


Get to know your Orland Park, IL area flooring experts


Family-owned since 1975

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 80s. At the end of the 80s and beginning of the 90s, 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”.

Established in 1975

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!
