What Separates Us From Other Stores?


We have had our own installers working for us for over 20 years. They are true craftsmen at what they do, from carpet, wood and tile installations they have been installing for years and are experts at their trade. As most customers understand there is a lot of research done in selecting the right product for their home. They also know it is equally important to find a quality installer to install the product in their home. We encourage you to contact past customers of ours or read our reviews on Angie’s or Checkbook to see the type of quality installations we have done for customers over the years.

3 Year Guarantee on Installations.

We guarantee all of our work up to 3 years. That means that within 3 years of purchasing our product if anything was not done correctly due to installation we come out and fix it free of charge.

No hidden fees

When we give you an installed price on carpet that includes everything! Take up and removal of pre-existing carpet, moving furniture, installation, material and 8 lb. pad. Industry standard is 6 lb. pad, so the 8lb pad is already upgraded.

Knowledge of the Staff

When you work with Clawes Carpets you are working with flooring consultants and designers that have been in the industry for years. They have a vast amount of knowledge of all the products in the industry and will help you make the best selection for your home. We only carry products in our store that we know perform well and have performed well for our customers over the years so you can feel safe knowing you have a quality product installed in your home for years to come.

We power stretch carpet

A power stretcher is used on carpet to minimize wrinkling or bucking over time. This is included in our installed price and is highly recommended by the top flooring manufacturers as it necessary to guarantee the carpet warranty.

No more dust!

We have a dust evacuation system our technicians use when they sand down your floors for our sand/stain/urethane jobs that minimizes micro-dust in the home.

We pride ourselves on the amount of repeat and referral work we have. Below are a few testimonials that speak of the quality work we provide to our customers.

Working with Clawes Carpet has been one of the most pleasant experiences in many years of working with contractors and service providers. They really know their products and provide excellent advice on what products to choose for each specific need."

Clawes was absolutely excellent all around. The customer service was awesome, and they listened to what we needed without trying to upsell."

The installation crew was extra careful not mark any wall while moving heavy furniture and installing new rug which came out perfect cannot even find any seam work on rug. My home was left in perfect condition. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of everyone involved. I may have been able to find someone for less but in no way could they have done as good, honest and professional job as Clawes. I was so happy that I found them. From the moment that I met the salespeople, owner son, and installers, everyone was truthful and lived up to their commitments. I will surely use Clawes for any future rug purchases.”

I read the reviews of Clawes Carpets and went to showroom. I was immediately greeted by the owner of the store. They gave me several color samples to take with me and were able to set up the estimate the following day. The estimator was right on time and very professional. The very next day, Clawes called back with the write up. The installation team showed up right on time and worked quickly and efficiently. They did a beautiful job! I received friendly, amazing customer service in all my dealings with them and am very satisfied with the product and installation. The next time I need carpet for my house, I will definitely use Clawes."

Clawes completed several projects for us over the course of two months. In every instance, they were extraordinarily responsive in providing estimates, scheduling the work and following up on any concerns or corrections needed. They were always very professional and knowledgeable in helping us to decide on the various options for both the carpet and ceramic tile. In every instance we requested and were provided several samples of the carpets and tile to take home for several days. They stood behind the work and vowed to do everything possible to ensure that we were 100% satisfied. We highly recommend them."

When it looked like we might be moving overseas on short notice, I called Clawes Carpets. I’ve lived in Fairfax County since the early 1980′s and knew of their solid reputation for quality service and fair pricing. Although our move was cancelled, my interactions with Clawes lived up to my high expectations. They came out promptly, provided a very competitive estimate, and showed me several carpets that I liked. When they followed after a couple weeks, I told them that our move had been indefinitely delayed because of the sequester. The manager was very friendly and said he would keep my measurements for future use. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again if we ultimately move.”
