Bill Blake grew up in Baltimore, MD. From a young age, Bill excelled at problem solving. His philosophy is to always leave the situation better than when he found it.
Bill developed his love for building and problem solving from his father, Edward Blake. This led Bill to a career as an engineer, where he worked on bridges all over the East Coast.
Bill’s ideas were revolutionary at that time. How to develop a flooring system that could solve problems in the back of the house. This system, in sync with Bill’s ideology, had to solve a specific problem: how to install a durable, commercial kitchen floor without shutting down the business. It was then that he developed a seamless flooring system. It was in 1993, that Feature Flooring was born.
Bill’s passion for problem solving has been passed along to his two sons, Lee & Cole. Both boys were brought into the business at a very young age. They learned from the ground up, making kits, mixing, cleaning up, troweling; all of the on the job training so that they would understand what makes Feature Flooring tick. As they got older, they learned the sales and operations side of the business. Now, Lee is the Vice President of Sales. Cole is the Director of Operations. So Feature Flooring is and always will be a family owned and operated buisness.
The Blake family believes in treating their employees as family. In doing so, they have a loyal group of employees reflected in the Sales & Marketing staff, Accounting staff as well as the Installation Crew.
Their philosophy of building and maintaining long term relationships extends to their customer base as well which ranges from New York City to Richmond, VA.
