Erik Burns has grown up watching his dad, Tom Burns, install carpet since he was a child and thus, in his words, he has been in the industry as long as he can remember. After moving to Golden, CO in 1996 from Chicago, IL, Erik eventually went on to study Political Science at Colorado State University. On the weekdays he went to class and on the weekends, he went home and installed carpet to make ends meet. It was at this time that he developed his knowledge of the installation process, including measuring and seam placement. Shortly after he graduated, Scot Johnson and his dad, created the blueprint for what is now Coventry Carpets and Erik made the decision to be part of the team. Since 2007, Erik has become an expert in helping people make better flooring choices and ensuring the end result meets their needs. By combining his installation background and vast product knowledge, Erik can help guide you through your floor covering investment.
Maggie Burns, Erik’s wife since 2010, has always been heavily involved in the family business and, through the years, she has even been a big part of many installations. As Erik’s business grew, it began to become more and more clear that the only way to elevate his business to the next level would be if they formed a team. Although she loved her career in the banking industry, and developed many skills along the way, in early 2018 she and Erik decided it was time for The Burns Team to take flight and help facilitate the best customer experience possible for Erik’s clients. Maggie and Erik reside in Golden, CO along with their son Conor and their dog Rossi. They love the outdoors and taking in all that Colorado has to offer including skiing, cycling, hiking, and camping. Although they will go practically anywhere in the Denver Metro area for business they particularly enjoy working with home owners west of Denver specifically Arvada, Lakewood, Evergreen, and of course, Golden.
They look forward to meeting you!
