Dee Jay Carpet zebra print

What began as a brave young man’s dream has evolved into one of our community’s most distinguished and trusted family-owned businesses.

Upon his arrival home from World War II, Jack Nacht, a young pilot, asked his father, who owned and operated a small carpet business out of the trunk of his car, if they could start a business together. Thus Dee-Jay Carpet Company was founded.

Since its inception, honesty, integrity, and loyalty to its customers have been the company’s hallmark. Now, more than 60 years later, Dee-Jay Carpet Co., Inc. still proudly continues this time-honored tradition with Jack’s son Michael and grandson David at the helm.

“Not only has Dee-Jay Carpet Co., Inc. passed down from generation to generation on the inside, we are now helping the great-grandchildren of our original customers,” said Michael. “We are truly filled with great pride and gratitude that families have let us grow up with them.”

At Dee-Jay Carpet, they take great pride in providing customers with superior products, technical expertise, quality installations, and excellent customer service.

“I just had Dee-Jay Carpet install the floor coverings in my new home,” says L.T. of Woodmere. “The experience was as good as it gets. From beginning to end, every detail was carried off with grace and good humor. It’s really a no-brainer; we’ve already referred our friends to Dee-Jay Carpet.”

S.G. of Lawrence waxes enthusiastic regarding her experience as well.

“Dee-Jay Carpet was one of the most professional experiences I have had with a business,” she says. “A few years ago, I needed a small carpet for an area and went with Dee-Jay. Recently, I went back and had them complete my entire upstairs area. The service was the same as before; impeccable and very reasonable. If you are looking for quality carpet with competitive prices and wonderful service, Dee-Jay Carpet is it.”
