"A Mebane-based flooring company is set to appear Monday on HGTV’s “Love It or List It” season premiere.
“Between here and the first project you pass maybe 15 flooring stores,” Signature Flooring co-owner Charles Harding said. “It makes you proud of your business.”
Signature Flooring, 1909 N.C. 119 South, was contracted as a supplier for the HGTV show that features designer Hilary Farr and real estate expert David Visentin as they attempt to persuade homeowners to renovate their homes (“Love It”) or put their homes on the market (“List It”). This upcoming season, which premieres at 9 p.m. Monday, features homes in the Raleigh and Durham areas.
The local store, which was introduced to the show’s producers through a builder, has completed two projects for “Love It or List It,” and is in discussion to assist with a third project with the potential for more opportunities, Signature Flooring Sales and Design Associate Vicki Whittemore said.
“We are a small piece of the whole project,” she said. “They can complete an entire project in about a month, and we were there for a total of seven days.”
The producers were impressed with Signature Flooring’s work and professionalism, Harding said, and asked the company to work as a supplier for other projects.
“Part of being able to work with those guys is adapting to their schedule,” he said. “And it’s not that we aren’t very busy — we had to juggle some people around.”
Harding said he’s not sure how much or little they will appear during the episode, but they were looking forward to the publicity and the opportunity that appearing on the show would create.
“The installers may have been slightly intimidated, but we were more excited,” Whittemore said. “We have a lot of faith in our team.”
Harding and co-owner Todd Anthony spent more than 20 years each in the flooring business, and the pair decided to open a business in February 2008.
The business flourished despite opening at the height of the Great Recession, Harding said.
“We’ve made a profit every year, and we won best local flooring company,” he said. “We have the best customer service, and that is something that has kept us rolling.”
