Value Flooring has been a celebrated family-owned businesses in Valparaiso for more than 20 years. Owners Shawn Schultz and Carrie Schultz Abbring have been the monumental force behind the company’s success and have received a lot of praise from customers over the years. The two work with clients personally to ensure that they are beyond happy with their new or renovated space while also working within their budget. 

As the go-to for many local construction companies, Value Flooring provides skilled installation of flooring, custom showers and tub surrounds, custom area rugs, and more depending on client needs. Ron O’Connor, owner of O’Connor Builders Inc., has been working with Value Flooring for quite a few years.

“Carrie and Shawn are both incredible to work with and are great on their design work and putting together packages that make customers feel comfortable with what they’re putting in their home,” O’Connor said. “They communicate very well and stay on top of their projects, they get things done when you need them done, and they give customers what they deserve and stay true to that.”

Calvin Schneider, another local custom home builder and owner of Schneider Builders, Inc., is also a long-time client of Value Flooring. Schneider Builders, Inc. is known for their high-end custom homes and commercial construction, so having a company that provides materials and installation that are of equal quality is important.

“[Shawn and Carrie] have always been personable and easy to work with. I send all of my clients there and have never had any complaints,” Schneider said. “Shawn understands the level of quality we desire in our homes so he always makes sure we get the best installers who are clean, courteous, and do a nice job.”

Schneider recommends Value Flooring to his clients, plus anyone looking to renovate an existing home or create a new home. With any project big or small, Value Flooring has you covered.

“I would recommend anyone to go in there, they’ve got nice selections, their price is right, and the quality is there,” Schneider said. “It’s refreshing and they make my job a lot easier when I can send people into their showroom, and I know that they’re supporting me and my business and doing what they can to help me out as well.” 

And then there’s Jodi Gheaja, woman of many skills. As a real estate broker with Realty Executives Premier, interior designer, and staging specialist, Gheaja knows all of the ins and outs of the housing industry. After learning about Value Flooring from working as a designer with Schneider Builders, Inc., she now considers the company a solid go-to for any personal or client flooring and custom tile needs. 

“They were professional, fantastically priced, and came in and left the job site very clean and did a great job,” Gheaja said. “All of the salespeople are super helpful always, and they have some very gifted installers who can do very intricate pattern work. If you need something you just call them and they’ll come out.”

Gheaja also praised Shawn for working under a small budget for clients trying to sell their homes without breaking the bank. If there are remnants of flooring leftover that he feels will fit the space, he does whatever it takes to get the client what they need for a good deal.

“I have recommended [Value Flooring] to people who are going to sell their homes and maybe need to update but inexpensively. I can always call Shawn and tell him what a customer needs and he’ll go above and beyond to find me deals,” Gheaja said.

Commercial or home, simple or complex, Value Flooring has whatever you need for a good price with excellent reviews.
