History, Vision, Mission & Values

Southern Carpet, Hardwood & Tile originally opened its doors in 1899 as Southern Carpet and Rug Cleaning Company. By the early 1950’s Southern Carpet and Rug Cleaning was one of Alabama’s largest carpet sales and cleaning service companies.

In the 1970’s the company transitioned away from carpet cleaning, changed its name to Southern Carpet, and began to add other flooring products to its product line.

In 1987 Tim Hightower bought the company and changed the name to Southern Carpet and Hardwood, as wood flooring and service had grown to represent a significant part of the company’s business.

Under Tim’s leadership Southern Carpet, Hardwood & Tile is now one of the southeast’s leading commercial flooring companies. The company is a preferred provider of flooring services by contractors throughout Alabama, Florida and Mississippi. With a reputation for quality workmanship, expert installation and on-time performance, Southern Carpet, Hardwood & Tile is ready to take on any project and deliver outstanding results.
