Academy Carpet

Academy Carpet Company specializes in residential homes. We install carpet in about 360 homes per month. We have the largest inventory of carpet in the State of Colorado, and can install within three days of your in-stock purchase.

We also buy directly from the major manufacturers, and can ship from Georgia within ten days in most cases. Our installation professionals are tried and true, and all work is guaranteed by Academy Carpet Company. Other carpet stores often sell the materials and hand the customer a list of installers to call for service. This puts the burden of schedule coordination, and installation warranty on the customer. We believe in the turn-key, full service we have always provided in Colorado Springs, and our satisfied customers know to rely on us for first-rate service.

Whether you are thinking of building the home of your dreams or giving a room a fresh, new look, Academy Carpet can show you the right way to plan your floor covering project for lasting beauty and comfort. Owner Rick Gibson came to Colorado Springs from the Midwest in 1979, and opened the first Academy Carpet Company on Academy Blvd in 1981.

"Our interest was in providing a more relaxed carpet buying experience" says Rick Gibson, "The typical carpet store is a sea of carpet sample racks and little information about how to select the best value." Their 30,000 square foot showroom is vastly different from the average carpet store, featuring vignettes of installed carpet in room-like settings, bright halogen lighting to really view the colors, and lots of information in easy to understand brochures and helpful, knowledgeable sales staff. "Our referral business dates back to my first carpet sale," says Rick Gibson, "I still provide carpet replacement for that client and many others they have referred to me".

Rick Gibson started the company with a plan to work in a business together with his family, and have a family run business that he could later pass on to his children. "We have enjoyed working together, sharing a business and learning more about our industry," says Rick, "After carpeting thousands of homes, we've built a solid reputation based on delivering value and service to our customers."

The huge inventory stocked is one way they have found to best serve the customer, passing on savings from large purchases and providing immediate installation of low, medium and high-end carpets. A staff of trained salespeople can help you design a room or full house with professional know-how. Rick says " Our interest in the most recent advances in the carpet industry has enabled us to educate our customers, and help them select floor coverings that will really satisfy them long-term, and bring them back for future purchases as well. We plan to be here a long time, and our interest in serving Colorado Springs is a return for the way the community has provided for us since 1979".
