JK Carpets was founded by John and Pam Kulick in 1985, in Locust Grove, VA. John Kulick started in the flooring industry as a young teenager, learning the trade through his father, a flooring installer.
John continued as a flooring installer, working as a superintendent for a large flooring company in Northern Virginia, before deciding to start his own business in the Fredericksburg area. His wife, Pam, had an accounting background and naturally took responsibility of the bookkeeping and ordering, while John provided estimates, scheduled installations, and completed jobs along with other JK Carpets installers.
They rented a commercial space outside of Lake of the Woods, starting out with a small showroom and office, with a separate rented storage space as their warehouse. As their business grew, so did their need for space, and in 1996, JK Carpets built their current building, on Germanna Highway, that houses a showroom, offices, and an attached 5,000 square foot warehouse.
