John Gaines, Flooring Specialist

John is a native RVA’er and a veteran salesman at L&M, having started in the spring of 1989.  He has seen many trends come and go and would like to say that he has “been there, done that, seen it,” but there is always something new and exciting to see and learn.  He specializes in flooring installations for insurance restoration and has worked in this field for nearly fifteen years, helping families return to “normal” after often-tragic events and often dealing directly with their insurance carriers. When asked what he likes most about working at L&M Carpet One Floor and Home, he replied “I truly enjoy helping my insurance customers get their feet back on solid floors. Water, storm, fire and the many other forms of damage can leave a customer’s home and business in complete disarray. So when I’m able to exceed expectations by providing beautiful new floors in an organized fashion, going home at the end of the day is that much more gratifying.”

Outside of L&M, John likes to participate with his family in his church’s music program and other church activities and work on his cars (both full-size and scale models).
