The Team


Craig Dupra,

Co-Founder & Owner

Craig started installing, sanding, and refinishing hardwood in 1982. After spending 24 years on the ground floor, Craig moved into a role as a national sales rep for a large wood coatings company and then, when the marketplace showed an opportunity, opened the doors of Installers Warehouse in 2008. 

Craig currently serves as Chairman of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA).


Katherine Lanz Dupra,

Co-Founder & Owner

Katherine is the newest member of the IW team, even though she has actually been there since the beginning. A musician, performer and educator who married Craig Dupra in 1982 was instrumental in the launch of Dupra Hardwood Flooring in the early 80’s and Installers Warehouse in 2008. She has recently retired from a 30 year teaching career to be more actively involved in the ownership of Installers Warehouse.
