In the early 1940's Grandpa Ralph Maynard Johnson took on jobs remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, while His son Dale Maynard Johnson a sophomore in high school sparked a passion for floors. Soon starting Johnsons Carpet & Tile. Grandpa went on to lay the flooring at Minnesota icons like the Oneida, and Alworth buildings.
This knowledge was passed down through four generations (and counting) of the Maynard family. Today his grandson, Paul Maynard, and great-grandson, Brandon Maynard, carry that same passion for flooring, and a streak of perfectionism.
