Crown Coverings, Inc. was designed as a business where employees grew as individuals, and customers cultivated relationships with experts they can rely on. Founders, Rocco and Cheri Molfese, knew their combined experience and talents would best serve the construction industry as a specialty trade. Crown wasn’t just a start up, for these partners it was a start over in their personal and professional lives. After experiencing complete financial ruin, they were starting from scratch, realizing they could only count on who they were as people. With grit, determination and complete loyalty to each other, their motivation became their motto.  Crown works on the inside, literally and figuratively, because who you are inside matters. Fueled with determination, their vision was to build an interior finishes company that covered several product lines. The initial specialties focused on flooring and countertops. Tailoring offerings to solve the unique concerns of each project, they quickly built a reputation of resourcefulness and expertise and gave Crown a strong foothold as a non-union specialty trade. From there they have grown. Crown has since expanded to offer additional services such as consulting, painting, seating/millwork, and offers maintenance and care through Crown’s partnership with milliCare. The most recent expansion for Crown is the development of Crown at Home. With a parallel vision, Crown at Home brings the same customer service and solutions providing talents to the residential marketplace serving homeowners, property investors, and Realtors. With services ranging from kitchen remodels, to interior packages for new construction, their team has you covered. Crown Coverings recognizes that every customer desires knowledgeable representatives to provide solutions that fit their personal and professional projects. Crown Coverings, Inc. is proud to present a team that exemplifies expertise in customer service. Because Who You Are Inside Matters!
