Meet Troy, the Owner and President of Royal Carpet One, whose flooring journey began at the tender age of 6 when helping his grandparents run their flooring installation business. In 2012, he revitalized Royal Floors, later evolving it into Royal Carpet One Floor & Home in 2017, expanding services to include stone fabrication and an extensive tile center.
Today, he carries on his family's legacy by working with his valued customers and as a devoted community figure, sponsoring youth organizations and actively engaging in community development. Beyond the flooring world, Troy loves to travel, is an avid outdoorsman, and is a loving father to his two teenagers and one toddler. With a skilled team of employees, a Flooring Contractor’s license in Nevada and California, and his Tile Contractor’s License in Nevada, Troy and his crew look forward to elevating your flooring experience.
Meet Nick Rogers, our Warehouse Manager extraordinaire! Nick's warehouse management skills are legendary; he knows every nook and cranny of the Royal Carpet One like the back of his hand.

Today, Nick's in charge, ensuring everything runs smoothly. Plus, he's the first to greet our install teams and he preps their materials effortlessly. Beyond work, Nick's a former race car driver in the IMCA Modified class turned semi-professional drone racer, bringing a taste of adventure to the team.

Meet Steve Zizzo, our Retail Sales Manager! Affectionately known as "Zippy" behind the scenes, Steve's journey to us reads like fate.
