ABOUT TCR FLOORS
TCR Floors has been providing flooring, tub & shower and countertop installations in the Houston area since 2004. Our Founder and Owner, Chesley Rockett, has been in the flooring business for over 40 years. We have in-house trained crews that work exclusively for us and we can bring in additional preferred crews to meet our builders’ demanding schedules and installation requirements. We maintain a quality of installation and attention to detail that is second to none in the Houston area.
The TCR Floors Mission is to help our builders’ save time and the responsibilities involved with sourcing, ordering, scheduling and overseeing flooring, tub & shower and countertop installations. It is our number one priority to complete each project at the highest possible quality standards and do whatever it takes to create happy homeowners. For the builders we serve, we provide peace of mind, a more profitable long-term bottom line, and more time to focus on other things.
TCR is experienced in all types of flooring, showers, waterproofing, slab surface preparation, moisture control, installation, and repairs. We take pride in knowing that tiled tubs and showers are installed correctly, and will be problem-free for many years.
Using your digital plan drawings, TCR can provide precise quantity estimates and material overlay drawings. We calculate the optimum layouts, product configurations and patterns, and ideal cut and seam locations to reduce waste and maintain the lowest product cost. We have long standing relationships with the best manufacturers and suppliers in the industry, and we can provide top-quality materials at competitive pricing. In some cases TCR will use our process to install customer supplied products.
Drawing from over 40 years in the floor covering industry, and having encountered virtually every conceivable construction and weather condition across MA, NY, NJ, CT, DC, MD, VA and TX, Chesley utilizes his vast expertise in the Houston Builder Market. This kind of know-how can only be acquired from thousands of installations, representing tens of millions of dollars, and countless types of flooring products in residential, commercial and multifamily applications.
TCR can be available to advise on appropriate choice of material for given conditions, installation best practices for optimal performance of each product, and proper care and maintenance.

Bringing over four decades of experience in flooring
Chesley Rockett started as a carpet rep selling to flooring retailers, became Regional Sales Manager and then Vice President of Sales in charge of product development for Spears Carpet Mills in Hope, Arkansas. During the growth of the 70s and 80s Mr. Rockett changed over to the new construction side of the flooring industry and took the helm as Sales Manager at Flooring Services in Dallas, Texas, which became one of the largest flooring contractors in the United States. In 1987, after five years in Dallas, Mr. Rockett was promoted to Branch Manager and moved to Columbia, Maryland to open a new branch for the company.
In 1990 the Maryland branch of Flooring Services was sold and subsequently closed, at which time Mr. Rockett started Total Carpet Resource, a new flooring company specializing in carpet, vinyl, and tile for multi-family developments, healthcare and retirement facilities. Total Carpet Resource’s annual revenue reached over 3 million dollars before the national slow down in 1998, when Mr. Rockett moved to Houston and became Sales Manager for Floors, Inc.
In 2004 Mr. Rockett founded Tile & Carpet Resource (TCR Floors) and serves home builders throughout the greater Houston area.

S R Burgess, Chief Building Official
As the Chief Building Official for the city, I work with a lot of contractors in a lot of different fields. TCR Floors is a company of integrity and professionalism. I would without a doubt use this company every time the need arises.
My family were victims of Hurricane Harvey, and I elected to use TCR floors for all of the flooring and tile throughout the two houses. Knowing how contractors are, I was very careful in selecting a contractor to do this work. This company was highly recommended.
Mr. Rockett and his crew are professionals in this field. And Mr. Rockett was very compassionate an understanding about what our needs would be, and cost. The company installed all new ceramic tile flooring in both houses, also installed three new showers and new tile backsplash in the kitchen. The company also replaced all the upstairs carpet. All materials and labor were covered in the estimate for the project, and the final price was the same as the estimate.
