About Rocky

Rocky Gentry was an exceptional business owner, loyal friend, an amazing father, and a loving husband.
After starting his career as an installer in 1982, he learned the value of hard work, dedication and quality craftsmanship from his father, Merritte Gentry. After his father’s passing, Rocky began to install flooring for himself, local businesses and contractors throughout eastern North Carolina. Rocky was a talented installer who believed in honest, hard work. Word spread quickly and he became highly recommended throughout the community.

In April 2001, he and his wife, Hope, opened Outer Banks Floor Covering and have proudly been serving eastern North Carolina ever since. Due to his vast amount of “hands-on” experience, Rocky had an acute understanding of every aspect of flooring. He was skilled in installing every type of residential and/or commercial flooring and passed those skills onto his son, Gunnar.

During his spare time, Rocky enjoyed the benefits of living on the Crystal Coast. He could often be found on the water with Hope, Krista and Gunnar boating, fishing, crabbing, clamming, or just relaxing.

Although Rocky passed away in 2017, his vision for exceptional craftsmanship, honesty, hard work and kindness remain at the core of our company. Rocky devoted many years to making Outer Banks Floor Covering the best that it could be and our family continues to run it just as it was before. We use the lessons he taught us and the experiences we acquired working with him to give our customers a remarkable floor covering experience. Today, Rocky’s wife and two kids, Hope, Gunnar and Krista and their exceptional team of installers are proud to carry on his legacy.
