About Us

Proudly servicing the Asheville, Hendersonville, Weaverville and surrounding communities with American-made flooring since 1971.


We put the best of America at your feet.

In 1971, J.B. Snelson and his wife Alma founded Leicester Flooring. It began trading from the couple’s home, a small flooring shop dedicated to providing the local community with high-quality flooring products that are manufactured for Americans by Americans. Leicester Flooring quickly grew to become one of the most trusted flooring centers in the industry with two more locations to its name.


When Brad, The Snelson’s son turned 21, he took over the family business when his parents retired. Today Leicester Flooring celebrates its 40th year in business. The company may have grown but the deep rooted core values remain the same. We at the Leicester Flooring family are committed to providing our communities with friendly customer service, extended warranties, low prices, and installation services that are backed by a guarantee.

"We love the fact that these folks only sell American made flooring. We will always support a company that supports our nation as both of our sons are in the armed forces. The carpet was priced fairly and the installation was quick and painless. We HIGHLY recommend Leicester Flooring."

"Can't speak highly enough about my experience with Leicester Flooring. Laurie was extremely helpful from the second I walked in to the showroom. She went above and beyond to help find the best options. Great communication every step of the way, from measurement to install. You could tell the installation guys, Carl and Kirk cared about the quality of their work and it shows. Thanks!"
