Our Story

With a passion for real estate, interior design & construction have always been a part of us allowing close relationships to be built over the years with many developers, designers and architects. After 5 years of flipping properties, a close friend and designer identified a business line that was not yet untapped in the Caribbean – this line was Mannington. Mannington, then a main supplier of carpets and carpet tiles was a very well-known name in the business and was often specked in projects without any local agents to purchase from. After 7 years as an employee, Ian Hamel-Smith was ready to go off on his own to become an entrepreneur and thus founding Dekking Limited.

Dekking Ltd. which originally started as a one-man operation in a small 10×10 office representing only Mannington, has today branched out to represent Karndean LVT, one of the fastest growing flooring categories in the industry, as well as by Masland, Arima, TREX and many other lines and services to help in all constructions needs. Almost 15 years later, Dekking Limited is successful, renowned and the best of all, has a great team who enjoy what they do.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Through our knowledge and expert installation services, our mission is to provide flooring solutions and valuable support that exceed consumer expectations.

Our Services

Today, designers are being asked to do so much more than just renovate and build spaces. They are expected to meet the designs that will integrate space with productivity while considering design, comfort, sustainability, life-safety and compliance in a litigious environment. And they must do it with tighter budgets and shrinking time frames.

For our clients to achieve the most value in our systems, we are committed to working with each client as if they are our only client. From selection to installation and maintenance, we work closely with you to help you benefit from your investment and meet the ever-changing needs of the environment.

Our installation teams contracted by our sister company Real Spaces Ltd., are well trained in the best installation methods and are always supervised in keeping with safety regulations and procedures.

Client Testimonials

I first used the product lines carried by Dekking over 10 years ago. At that time I was looking for commercial carpet for a project and over the years the company added more exquisite product lines which I continue to use to date. More importantly, I have had nothing less than great service throughout the years and my relationship with the company / staff has grown to where I feel like part of the tribe. Kudos!

Michelle Berment
Interior Designer

I had a good experience dealing with the sales reps in the showroom as well as the installation team. The company was flexible with their scheduling of installtions as the general contractor encountered delays with completion of our home. The installation was professional, they did a lot of cleaning of the subfloor in preparation and did a great install. All around, the professionals at the store and during the install were great.

Kern Charles
Homeowner

We used Dekking Ltd. when we needed to upgrade our floors at home and we chose the Karndean LVT line. From choosing the flooring to installation, their customer service was excellent. The floors are high quality and they have a great selection of colours and finishes. We are currently using them again for our floors at the office. I would highly recommend Dekking Ltd. to anyone.

J. Marshall
Homeowner

Working with Dekking Ltd was simple and painless and very professional. We had a tight deadline to re-do our conference room and office area. Their staff provided us with excellent service. They dropped samples off to us eliminating the need to come into the showroom and they ensured that we met our timeline. Their team of installers were also amazing, almost unnoticeable even while working in the middle of a quiet office environment. The job was done efficiently and looks great. We will recommend Dekking Ltd and will use them again if needs arise in the future.
