Founders Kenny & Patti Wilder, opened in Benton's Decorating Center in 1991, specializing in carpet and vinyl.
Decorating Center in Northwood, New Hampshire. Specializing in carpet and vinyl.
Kenny was a hardworking craftsman who quickly made a name for himself in the community. The business continued to grow and Wilder Flooring moved to its forever home on Route 4, a larger space with the ability to offer a "Full Service" store.
Kenny retired and sold the business to David Patterson who ran the store for over 11 years. In the fall of 2022, David passed the reins to new owners, Ryan & Hayley Marsh. Ryan & Hayley are new to Wilder but not the flooring business! They have owned and operated Rymar Flooring for over 25 years and bring with them decades of experience & firsthand installation knowledge.
Some of Ryan's earliest childhood memories include climbing around on carpets and riding in the passenger's seat of his dad's van. Ryan was on job sites as young as 7 years old picking up debris and vacuuming newly installed carpets under his father's watchful eye. Installing flooring was his job every summer break through High School and College. People will often ask Ryan, "How long have you been doing this?" and as he likes to put it "I never mowed lawns or made frappes, flooring is what I've always known and I genuinely love where it has taken me." Ryan took over ownership of the company at 28 years old after his father passed away. It was his goal to expand the company in his community to a full sales and service operation. Today his dreams have been accomplished and he has been able to share his success with his family, starting a legacy for his son & daughter to continue. Ryan has endless knowledge of the industry and coupled with his friendly personality you will be comfortable and confident from the start. From product application, current design trends, Ryan strives to provide his clients with the best products and service the Seacoast has to offer.
Hayley jumped into the company and flooring world when she met Ryan but she was no stranger to construction. She grew up in a family of home builders and custom craftsmen. With a background in hospitality, she brings that genuine, personal touch to every aspect of a project. Hayley works in our conveniently located showroom on Route 4 in Northwood. When she isn't wrangling kids, she is managing the office, placing orders, composing estimates & keeping everyone in line!
Brenden is Ryan's right-hand man! When he isn't doing the heavy lifting, he is winning medals with his NH Special Olympics Team. With a smile on his face & a snack in his hand, Brenden is ready to work hard every day!
In April of 2012, David Patterson purchased the flooring store. He has over 18 years of experience with residential, commercial, institutional and property maintenance. We are a FULL service flooring store. We treat every customer like we would like to be treated.
