Murnane Carpet & Floor is a small, locally owned floor covering business. Starting as an installer, himself, Bob Murnane grew Murnane Carpet & Floor into a floor covering business by fact of hard work and integrity. They’ve been installing floor coverings since 1990. Conveniently located in downtown Santa Rosa at 110 D Street (at 2nd St.), their showroom is a place to view and touch flooring selections at leisure. Of course, they were located in the West End for several years and many neighbors have experienced their expertise and courtesy. They offer professional residential and commercial installation of all our flooring products, and specialize in eco-friendly flooring materials such as wool carpet, true linoleum, cork, bamboo and FSC certified wood. If you’re undecided about materials, don’t worry, they can provide design assistance to help you choose the right flooring for your needs. Murnane Carpet & Floor is an independently owned business that provides personal attention to the details of each project, a no-nonsense approach to the completion of the project, and a price that is affordable.
