A Family That Knows Flooring

Atlas Floors Family Ownership

Since 1948, Atlas Floors Carpet One has served San Antonio homeowners, providing superior selection and service by building great relationships with customers.

New flooring throughout a home provides a blank canvas for homeowners. Whether they choose premium hardwood, laminate, vinyl, or custom tile, San Antonio’s Atlas Floors Carpet One has ideas, options, and expertise. “People are upgrading their homes,” says Billy Mahone, the third-generation general manager of this family-run business established in 1948. “We’re a full-service flooring business that wants to help.”

Now part of a national co-op called Carpet One, the company remains independently owned, but gives local customers access to exclusive products and programs and to special pricing. “People think they’ll have to pay a premium to support a local business,” Billy says, “but through Carpet One local customers have the negotiating power of over a thousand stores.” 

Decades of experience

As Billy manages Atlas Floors Carpet One, he benefits from family heritage and wisdom. His aunt, Jessica McCarthy, operates the showroom on Highway 281, where her children sometimes help out. His dad, William Mahone Jr., once managed the business and still oversees the W. Loop 1604-area showroom after he and his sister literally grew up in the original business location—an old home off Hildebrand Avenue where William Mahone Sr. founded the company. “The family lived in the back, and the showroom was in the front,” says Billy, who recently married and could one day teach a future generation about the flooring business. “[My dad’s] a great sounding board for me.” 

Billy and his staff know top residential flooring trends—No. 1: carpet in bedrooms and hard surfaces everywhere else, and No. 2: hard surfaces throughout for a cohesive look. They also stay up on the newest products, such as wood plank composite (WPC), for instance. Billy explains that WPC offers the look of rich wood flooring, but it’s waterproof. Denser than laminate options, it helps reduce the noise of foot traffic. And it also offers customers a price break on installation since it doesn’t require a layer beneath it called an underlayment.

“There is no perfect floor out there that fits everybody,” Billy says, adding that Atlas’ certified interior designers and flooring experts can help assess interiors and make recommendations. Showroom staff will help understand clients’ needs and decode their preferences, so homeowners can make confident choices. For Carpet One-branded selections, Atlas Floors Carpet One offers The Beautiful Guarantee™, which promises a complete replacement if customers don’t love the outcome. “These are floors that we have to stand behind,” Billy says.

A company that cares
Beyond serving customers, the family behind Atlas serves the community, too. “We’re proud San Antonians,” Billy says. “We take pride in giving back, and not just by offering high-quality products and installations.” The company has provided flooring for the KENS 5 Mi Casa Makeover project for families in need. Atlas also has donated product to silent auctions that benefit charities and has provided carpet for area school classrooms. “We really care,” Billy says. “Our customers are our friends, and we want them to have a floor they can be proud of.”
