About Us

From our modest beginning as a family business in Hayward in 1970, to our relocation to Pleasanton in 1988, Silmar Flooring has maintained a strong sense of family values throughout the years. David Silva and his father, Ernie Silva founded the company in 1970. Since then, David has been the driving force behind Silmar Flooring. He has built the company from the ground up, relying on his hard work and desire to be a competitive force in the floor covering industry. He successfully built the company with a steadfast adherence to ethical business practices, and 50+ years of knowledge in the floor covering industry. David primarily works within the Commercial and Hotel/Hospitality side of the business. His wife, Eileen Silva, heads the Residential side of the business, and his son, Christopher Silva works on both Commercial & Residential jobs.
