Contract Carpet One of Beltsville provides the best options out of any Maryland flooring and carpeting contractor. Our story spans over three generations of flooring professionals.
Louis Zanelotti, journeyman tile setter and father of our founder, Anthony, developed his son’s interest in flooring when he set ceramic tiles in some of the most historical places in Washington, D.C. Included in his amazing resume is the National Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception
Louie’s hard hands showed the cracks that were common of fine building tradesmen, most of whom were Italian immigrants. As a young man, Louie taught his son Tony the skills of the trade. Sadly, before his training could be completed, Tony was called to serve in World War II.
Tony started his professional career as a Washington, D.C. police officer while working for the Hinkle Rug Company in order to make extra money to support his expanding family of six children. Working for Hinkle reignited his passion for flooring instilled by his father, and in 1976 he struck off on his own and opened Contract Carpet One. Tony’s vision was to provide floor coverings to the expanding commercial market around Washington, D.C.
