Since installing its first floor 35 years ago, Perinton Carpeting & Flooring has upheld its dedication to providing homeowners with high-quality surfaces to tread upon. In the well-stocked showroom, knowledgeable staff members can be found helping patrons navigate the inventory of name-brand interior turf, from carpeting to ceramic tile to eco-friendly laminate flooring. Once shoppers have selected their ground cover of choice, Perinton’s in-house installer—boasting 23 years of floor revamping experience—descends on homes to anchor floors in place. Technicians also can refinish hardwood floors, leaving surfaces looking new after they erase bumps and scratches resulting from floors’ attempts to walk upright.
Handy employees help customers navigate shelves stocked with home-improvement implements, household appliances, and domestic essentials at Ace Hardware.

In addition to its wide selection of hardware, paint, plumbing, and electrical supplies, Ace Hardware dedicates ample space to gifts, home décor, and housewares.
