The Staff of Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings.

left to right: Dave, Robert, and Scott

Dave has been at Hester's since 1994. He has worked directly with builders, designers and homeowners. He has earned the respect from the all the manufacturer's representatives and installers for his knowledge of floor coverings. And looks forward to earning your respect as well.
Robert has recently (May 2023) retired. He will still be checking in on a couple of jobs that he is finishing. He is/was a phenomenal salesman that will be sorely missed. But Dave or Scott can definitely help you as we have for the last 23+ years.
Scott was born and raised in California, but after 20 years as a pilot in the US Navy, he settled in Florida. After owning a couple of other businesses, he saw the opportunity to buy Hester's in November 2000, and converted it to Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings in January 2001. Over the past years he has learned a lot about floor coverings, and has brought some good organizational and management skills to Hester's. In 2006 he built a new 2600 sq ft warehouse behind Hester's, which enabled him to expand the showroom to 4900 sq ft. Scott has also been instrumental in reaching out to the community through various projects and direct giving. He established the Hester's High School scholarship program in 2006 which has given over $100,000 in scholarships to our college-bound seniors.


Our installers are all independent contractors - not employees. But, for the majority of the time, we are able to keep them busy doing our work, and have been for the past 30+ years. All our installers are trained, licensed through St. Johns County, carry liability insurance, and have years of experience. They are professionals who know what they're doing. Their work is guaranteed, by them and by us. You will be most highly satisfied and appreciative of their skills.

Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings is proud to announce that Tom Partin and Dennis Kozlowski recently returned from Karastan carpet installation training in Tampa, Florida. 

The training, which was open to all floor covering installers in Florida, was conducted by Karastan's master trainer, Mr. Jim Walker. The two-day training required Tom and Dennis to commit considerable time and money toward their professional education. 

While each of them has significant past experience, with a combined 40 years between them, they are now Karastan certified. That distinction, from the top carpet producer in America, separates them from others since they were the only carpet installers from NE Florida to attend. 

Obviously, we at Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings are very proud of their commitment to quality.


At Hester's Abbey Floorcoverings, we support one another like a family, and have a great time getting together for the holidays. Here are some of the photos from the last few years showing our salesmen and installers and significant others all enjoying good times.

Scott and Robert were a pleasure to work with. Beautiful flooring. They were very patient and took their time moving the furniture and made sure everything was protected. I highly recommend this company! Very reasonable price and fast service!

We recently replaced all the floors in our condo. Hester’s was a wonderful dealer, very knowledgeable and very helpful. The floors are absolutely gorgeous, we are so pleased. Installation was done by Dalton and Craig, who went above and beyond to make sure we were pleased. Thank you Hester’s, Dave, our salesman, and Dalton, the installer.

The experience with the technicians was a wonderful one and I would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking to install any type of flooring. This is the 5th time that our family has employed Hester's Flooring and I know that in the future we will call on you again. Until the next time!
