Tehachapi Floor Covering


Darin Lewis of Tehachapi Floor Covering.

Darin Lewis of Tehachapi Floor Covering may be new to Tehachapi, but he certainly is not new to flooring. He has moved his entire Bakersfield business here, and is changing the name from AD&D Flooring to Tehachapi Floor Covering. Darin says that Tehachapi Floor Covering sells and installs "almost everything for the floor." This includes wood, vinyl and laminate flooring as well as carpet.

Darin's father started AD&D in 1993 and Darin has run it for the last several years. He says that he grew up with the flooring business. Family ties to flooring began in the late 1960s when his family was associated with Shafter Floor Covering and Doug and Linda Gragg who would become the eventual owners of Abbey Carpet in Tehachapi. Shafter Floor Covering eventually became Central Floor Covering which eventually became Abbey Carpet. Darin said that he worked as an installer for Abbey Carpet from 1999 to 2006. His uncle also has a flooring business in Bakersfield.

Darin explained that he has wanted to move to Tehachapi for some time; however, the time was never right for his family to make a move. With the Abbey Carpet space becoming available in Tehachapi and his youngest son, Joshua, graduating from Frontier High School in Bakersfield next June, he and his wife, Tiffani, can plan to make a permanent move. In the meantime, Darin is living in an on-site apartment.

Darin says that he loves living and working in a small town. Working in Bakersfield was always a challenge. Since opening Tehachapi Floor Covering, he has even found the time to attend his first rodeo. He and Tiffani have four grown children and their grandchildren are not too far away. They are excited to become part of their active new community.

Darin wants everyone to remember that when it's time for your new carpet or flooring, come out and visit the expansive showroom at Tehachapi Floor Covering in Old Town at 20571 Santa Lucia or call Darin at (661) 822-5025.
