ROSWELL WELCOMES CARPET DEPOT TO ROSWELL'S HISTORIC DISTRICT (From Beacon Newspaper 08/25/2010)
Carpet Depot is one of the newest companies in Roswell, and they are a welcome addition to the community. The warehouse style business is located behind the SoCa Design Center at 23-B Oak St. in Historic Roswell, across Oak St. from Krispy Kreme.
Owner Matt Thomas has deep roots in Roswell. He grew up in Horseshoe Bend and attended Florida State University, where he discovered two of his fraternity brothers had gone to Milton High School. The three young men decided to come back to the Atlanta area and establish a partnership. They chose the carpet business because one of the others had grown up in the industry and knew it inside and out. In 1992, the three friends opened the first Carpet Depot in Decatur. That venture was extremely successful, and over time the partners opened six other stores in the Atlanta area.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
For years, Matt drove each day to the stores in other parts of the metro Atlanta region. He finally decided that since he and his family live in Roswell, he wanted to work in his own hometown store. Four months ago as the sole owner, Matt opened the doors of Carpet Depot Roswell where he now works every day. He still has part ownership in the Carpet Depots in Mableton, Douglasville, Snellville and Jonesboro, but managers run the day-to-day operations in those locations.
GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS
Matt is proud to let people know that Carpet Depot Roswell is "your personal, inexpensive option for floor covering." Carpet Depot Roswell has hundreds of rolls in stock and carries the entire range from cheap, discount renter's grade to high quality carpet from such makers as Mohawk, Shaw and Beaulieu. If customers can't find what they want in the spacious warehouse, Carpet Depot Roswell can place custom orders.
Carpet Depot Roswell also stocks beautiful hardwood, laminate, and vinyl flooring from such well-known manufacturers as Bruce, Mannington, Congoleum, Domco, and others. Their prices are so low because they get truckload closeout and wholesale deals from the manufacturers and pass the savings on to their customers. Matt tells it like it is. "We buy warehouse deals; anything the mills want to make a deal on. We can have the fanciest all the way down to the cheapest. We've got the full spectrum of quality."
CARPET DEPOT ROSWELL IS A FULL-SERVICE COMPANY
Carpet Depot Roswell is open Monday - Friday 10 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 3pm, but they are willing to stay late to help their customers.

first and foremost, THANK YOU immensely for taking such good care of me with your thoughtful and immediate response to my issue with that first carpet disaster. Your double crew worked incredibly quickly yesterday to get things done ... everything turned out great and they were all so eager to please. It's such a pleasure to get such a professional job handled without hassles. There were a couple of scratches on my (new) hardwood entry, so I do think it would be a good idea to tell the guys they should cover hardwoods if they are going to be storing some of the furniture there while they're working. They were minor scratches and I think I can hide them easily, so no big deal.
Would you be so kind as to send me a final order confirmation, showing the carpet that I finally did choose, the name of the pattern, the pricing, etc.? I like to keep things like that in my file for future reference if needed. Again, thanks so much to you, Matt and all the guys for a job well done and greatly appreciated. You will certainly get my recommendation should any of my friends have carpet needs in the future.
I just wanted to let you know we are very, very happy with the carpet and installation. The crew was great and I was very impressed with their workmanship.
Let us know if we can be a reference for Carpet Depot. We will definitely spread the word.
We have used Carpet Depot for three jobs in the last year and we could not be more pleased. We most recently finished out our main floor in hardwood. Although we have heard horror stories from others about the amount of dust that would be created from the sanding, there was almost no dust left behind. I asked Nick and Matt about it and Carpet Depot purchased a machine that has a dustless system. It really works! In addition to coming back to a house that was not covered in wood dust, the floors looked awesome. The job was done on time and they matched the new wood with our existing wood so you could not tell the difference. Thanks to Matt and the rest of the guys for a job well done.

Hi Matt. I am so sorry for my delayed response. I have been traveling non-stop and was only home for Saturday and Sunday and then headed back out to the west coast. Thank you so much! I just wanted to say that our floors look absolutely outstanding and we couldn't be happier. They change the entire feeling and look of our upstairs. Your turnaround time was great and we appreciate you guys working around our schedules. Bryan (http://ramblinwreck.cstv.com/sports/m-basebl/mtt/prince_bryan00.html) said your guys were professional and courteous. Hopefully you will get to come by and see them sometime soon, if to pick up the check or just to see them.
I want to take a minute to thank you for the wonderful service and excellent value in the carpet that my wife, Jane, and I purchased from Carpet Depot. We had shopped extensively at the usual outlets for carpet, and thought that we had found what we wanted for a price that seemed reasonable. Then I came across your ad in the yellow pages and decided to visit your store. You answered my questions and showed me the same product that I had selected at another store. The difference, however, was the price was 25% less and the carpet was in stock. Because the carpet was in stock, you were able to schedule the installation for the day that worked best for me. The day before our scheduled installation, you called to confirm that we were expecting your crew. That really gave us peace of mind. Your installation crew arrived the next day exactly at the time promised. They were neat, friendly and professional. They installed our new carpet in the time that you said that they would, and it looks beautiful. We can not be more satisfied with our purchase from Carpet Depot.
Continued success in the future,
Bruce and Jane Neidenfeuhr
For the last 7 years I have utilized the products of Carpet Depot for a plethora of services. Working with Matt Thomas has been both an educational and substantially satisfying experience. I initially hired Carpet Depot to install carpet for a 1200 sq ft basement with a recording studio in my previous home and was impressed by the carpet recommendation, padding and installation. Shortly after that experience I had an opportunity as a contracting consultant to completely rehab Southwest Hospital in Atlanta and again I called on Matt to provide all the tile and carpet for the entire hospital job. The job was done on time and within budget to the amazement of hospital administrators.
In the last 2 years I had Carpet Depot again replace and install all the carpet in 2 of my rental properties. Most recently, I started the construction of my 17,000 sq ft home. I called Matt to help select material, design 10 bathrooms and install approximately 5000 sq ft of travertine on the main floor, 5000 sq ft of 3.5 inch hardwood wood floors in the office and the 2nd floor, 4000 sq ft of tile on the terrace level, and approximately 3,000 sq ft of carpet in the theater and secondary bedrooms.
Without hesitation I highly recommend Carpet Depot and Matt Thomas for any job involving, tile, stone, carpet, or wood work. The service is exceptional, the quality of work is unmatched and the cost beats any of the major brands I've dealt with.
First off, let me start by saying I am one of three of his brothers. Matt did not have to compete for my business. However, he treated my wife and me like royalty. Previously, we went shopping at other locations just to see what was available. We then went to Matt with what we wanted and he selected the best fit for our needs out of his in-store inventory. We were shocked that it was so easy for him. His installers came in an applied 2,100 sf of carpet and hardwood in 6 hours. They even moved all of the big items for us as they went. This transaction occurred in the spring of 2005. It is now the spring of 2009 and we are still pleased with the carpet and the quality of installation.

I visited bigdaddycarpet.com and called the number listed for Carpet Depot. I had just bought a house and wanted to redo the flooring throughout. I called up Matt and told him my ideas. He came out to my house in South Carolina with samples and took measurements. He was able to provide better flooring at a much lower price than I could find in or around Columbia. He had his guys come up from Mableton and install carpet, tile, and hardwoods for me. I am very satisfied.
We got hooked up with Matt through a friend of mine in Atlanta. I called him up and really didn't tell him anything that I wanted as far a color or type. I just told him my price range. He mailed me a sample of something that he had on special in stock, that was well under my price range. This carpet was the thickest, plushest carpet I had ever felt. I sent him the measurements and he had his guys come down and install it for me. They did a great job. It was easy and cheap - what more can you ask for - Carpet Depot did us right!
Carpet Depot has replaced the carpet in my home on three different occasions (three different rooms). Each time the installers were friendly and courteous. They even helped me move some furniture to get ready for the installation. The prices were better than any other quote I received, I would definitely recommend them in the future.
We have been working with Carpet Depot for almost 10 years now. They have been our exclusive flooring installer for all of our projects large and small. They work with our customers and help them select the flooring and then work with us to coordinate the installation. We always get great feedback from our clients about Carpet Depot's customer service and their installers are always respectful of our job-sites.
