family business established in 1969
Floorings supplied and fitted with outstanding customer care
Whittaker Carpets was established in 1969 by husband and wife team Terry and Janet Whittaker. 50 years later, the business is still owned and managed by the same family - now including a third generation of Whittakers. To us, it's more like a way of life than a business!
Many things have changed over the years, but one guiding principle that remains is our complete commitment to customer care. That's why we have resisted the 'carpet cash and carry' approach offered by the large national chains, and chosen instead to perfect our fully inclusive supply and fitting service.
When you choose your carpet, vinyl floor or LVT from Whittaker Carpets, you'll benefit from a complete service that includes supply, delivery and expert fitting including any materials and extras required to complete the work. All backed by a highly personal service and our years of experience that 'the sheds' simply cannot match. We believe this represents better overall value and a much more stress-free solution for our customers.
Located just a few miles from Norwich in Norfolk, we invite you to contact us for a superior flooring service. Our advice and estimates are offered free and without obligation.
After starting out alongside wife Janet from the garage of their house in 1969, Terry and Janet both took over the premises in White Street, Martham, Norfolk in 1975 where the family still trades today. After being in the trade for more than 48 years, unfortunately Terry passed away in 2017 leaving wife Janet, son Mark and grandson Ben, bringing three generations under the carpet banner.
Janet started alongside Terry in 1969 and provides a wealth of over 50 years experience in the carpet trade. Janet spends most of her time at our showroom in Martham, Norfolk, greeting customers and sharing her decades of expertise to ensure the customer gets the results they are looking for. Janet remains responsible for day to day running of the business now accompanied by her son Mark.
Mark joined the family business in 1984, training to be a professional fitter alongside his father. He is still fitting floors today alongside his sons Ben and Dom, playing a huge part in the installation of the quality floorings supplied by Whittaker Carpets. Mark is also responsible for the day to day running of the business along with Janet.
