About The Vertical Connection Carpet One

Founded in 1977 by Steven and Kathy Joss, The Vertical Connection Carpet One provides quality carpet, flooring, cabinetry, and Hunter Douglas window treatments to Columbia, Ellicott City, Howard County and the surrounding areas of Maryland.

We’ve always strived to provide customers with as diverse a selection of products as possible, while maintaining an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship in what we offer. If you’re looking for anything related to home interior improvement, you’re guaranteed to find a great selection of options that fit within your style and your budget.

Family Business Benefits

We take great pride in being a business that’s been family owned and operated for nearly 40 years. Our number one concern has always been your satisfaction. Our customers are our neighbors and we are your neighbors. Unlike online retailers or big box stores, at The Vertical Connection Carpet One you will always be able to talk face-to-face with a member of our team who’s invested, personable and thoroughly trained, in helping you find a home interior solution.

We’re also happy to offer free in-home consultations and measuring for all our home-improvement options, helping you find the right material and style that works for your home and within your budget.

Healthier Living™ Carpet Installation

Concerned about indoor air quality? Your home should be a safe and comfortable place to live and enjoy the company of your family. The Vertical Connection Carpet One is excited to offer the only carpet installation technique that uses advanced technology to eliminate dust, odor-causing bacteria and mildew from your room. Times have changed. Why go with a carpet installation that can kick up all kinds of nasty dust mites when you can experience our healthy and clean, Healthier Living™ Carpet Installation?

Unbeatable Warranties

Your investment should be backed up by the best warranties. At The Vertical Connection Carpet One you have access to unique guarantees, warranties, and discounts on our products that aren’t available anywhere else. Most of our products carry what we call our Beautiful Guarantee: if you don’t love the way your new carpet or floors look, we’ll replace it – FREE! That’s our commitment to your satisfaction… Ask us about it.

We’re Local AND Part Of The Largest Flooring Cooperative In The World

You deserve both the quality of service a local company brings you and the value of a national provider. At The Vertical Connection, we offer you both through our membership in the largest flooring cooperative in the world, Carpet One. Carpet One members have access to an extraordinary amount of buying power, granting us and you access to carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile, vinyl, area rugs and much, much more. Plus, cooperatives or “co-ops” are great for the success of local communities. Learn more about co-ops here (add co-op video from our youtube page)
