A Family Business with Friendly Faces

The Vertical Connection Carpet One is foremost a family business, here to provide you with the best carpet, flooring, custom cabinets, and Hunter Douglas window treatments available in Maryland. Our business model isn’t focused on making a quick profit, or selling discount flooring at huge mark-ups, we’re about building strong relationships through superior quality and friendly, always available, service. The Vertical Connection Carpet One will be there when you need us, now, and in the future.

We’ve Been Around Howard County

You live here… we live here. The Vertical Connection Carpet One has provided Howard County, Columbia, Ellicott City, Laurel, Catonsville, Clarksville, Elkridge, Fulton, Olney, and Maryland at large with carpeting, hardwood, cabinetry, Hunter Douglas window treatments and more for over 37 years.

Raising Quality & Lowering Costs

Our membership in the largest flooring co-op in the world, Carpet One, coupled with our own experience in finding the best cabinets, flooring, and Hunter Douglas window treatments at affordable prices, means that The Vertical Connection Carpet One is able to offer hundreds of exclusive brands of the highest quality, while ensuring that you won’t have to break the bank to afford them.

We Stand By Our Work

You’re making a big investment in your home. You deserve a company that will answer your call when you have a concern or a repair to be made. We’re not always perfect (though we strive to be), no home improvement company is. We’re going to take care of you, not hide from you as seems to be the common practice in our field. At the Vertical Connection Carpet One were not afraid to put our money where our mouth is. We have the confidence in our products and services to offer unique lifetime warranties you won’t find anywhere else in Maryland. Most of our products even include our trademark, Beautiful Guarantee, which promises that you’ll love the way your new floor looks or we’ll replace it FOR FREE!*

Purchasing home improvement options through The Vertical Connection Carpet One means buying a home improvement that is guaranteed to last, so call today at 410-730-7423, or stop by our showroom in Columbia, MD.

Price Match Guarantee

As a member of Carpet One, the largest flooring cooperative in the world, we’re confident that you can shop with confidence.  To qualify, simply present a written estimate with the identical product/service on letterhead from a competitor with a showroom in Maryland on any special ordered item that we display in our showroom.  We’ll beat their price by 10% of the difference in the two prices!  While we serve apples, others serve oranges.  Our warranties and guarantees make your purchase the best deal in town*.
