Meet Lorraine and our Team
For as long as I can remember I have always had a love for looking at house plans, colour schemes and decorating. The career of my dreams would have been to become an Interior Designer, however financially that wasn’t an option for my parents so I joined the banking industry. Several years later I got married to Ross, retrained to become a cosmetic consultant and started working for the Myer corporation at the Bendigo store. It was while we lived in Bendigo that Ross and I built our first home. I had such fun selecting all the exterior and interior finishes, paint colours, window treatments and floor coverings. Life was good. New home, secure employment, frien
ds and family.
A new beginning
Ross and I are always looking for new opportunities and so we decided to relocate. In July 1982 we waved goodbye to the dismal weather in Bendigo and moved
to Rockhampton in sunny Queensland, where we launched Springcrest Window Furnishings. Ross ran the head office and did the installations of pelmets, blinds and curtains and I was in the showroom selecting fabrics and designing window treatments for our clients. We were in our element. Then a few years later, I was asked to consult with clients, who were building new homes using Monier Roofing Tiles and PGH Bricks. This two hour consult would give a fully documented list of all the interior and exterior decisions their builder/developer would require them to select. It covered everything from exterior paint colours to door handles on the kitchen cupboards.

When it all falls into place
The knowledge and experience we have gained over the years is invaluable when it comes to serving our customers well. Today with Encore Carpet services we are solving people’s carpets problems and help them feel special in their own home. It gives us utter satisfaction to re-colour, replace and transform a damaged carpet that was declared a lost cause. The feedback we get from customers is amazing and motivates us to achieve the best possible outcome. What makes the difference with Encore’s Carpet Services is the fact that we set standards that we would be happy with if it was our own home.
What our valued customers have to say about us and Encore’s Carpet Services:
“We recently engaged ( husband and wife ) Lorraine and Ross Pearson to restore a severely sun faded carpet in a number of rooms in our home. Their assessment during quotation was thorough with full explanation of all the possible outcomes, yes, positives and negatives. The quote include everything we had asked for and priced very competitively. Knowledgeable, professional and hard working best describes their operation, they were meticulous in giving us what we were quoted on. Results were astounding, a good quality burgundy coloured carpet with 14 years of sun bleaching has been restored to as new condition. We were presented with some (old school ) honour and pride in workmanship. Fond regards Bede and Suzanne.”
The most rewarding aspect is catching up with clients after the project is finished and seeing first hand how delighted they are with the results. Over the thirty or more years that Ross and I have been in business, the thing we value the most, is the trust and faith our clients, many of whom have become longtime friends, place in us. That’s what makes it all worthwhile.
