Here, you’ll find a wide array of residential and commercial carpet options to accommodate every style and budget. If you’ve been thinking of carpet flooring for your next home improvement mission, there are certain things you need to know.
The fibers in your carpet, or carpet pile, are the true essence of your new floor. Carpet pile decides how flooring feels and functions. It can be either synthetic or naturally derived. Among the more prevalent options are synthetics, like polyester and nylon, and naturals, like wool. All pile types may be incorporated into level loop, frieze, patterned, textured, or plush construction weaves.
Nylon is a synthetic pile that’s incredibly popular. Soft, durable, and colorful nylon carpet spans a wide range of options. Nylon can be pricey but is built to last. Polyester is another synthetic pile that feels like nylon products. Polyester carpet is an affordable alternative that, thanks to improved manufacturing, offers comparable durability.
Olefin is a synthetic carpet pile often found in colorful, Berber-style products. Olefin carpet is a commercial favorite as it’s very sturdy and easy to clean. Triexta is a heavy-duty synthetic that’s one of the strongest stain-fighters. Triexta is a nylon cousin and is an excellent choice if you have a new puppy at home. Wool is the most popular natural pile around. It’s warm, long-lasting, and colorful. Wool carpe naturally resists moisture and mildew.
Carpet flooring can be used in almost every room with careful selection and planning, except for kitchens and bathrooms. Consider a stain-resistant, moisture-proof product for spaces inhabited by pets or kids. We carry options to meet any household challenge. Our experts can advise you towards products to best meet your needs. Your first step should be to take a careful inventory of your space, its activity levels, and its level of sun exposure.
Most of us have big dreams when it comes to our homes, but not all of us have the knowledge, tools, and skills to bring those dreams to life. Our experts advise you to spend as much time researching the site preparation and installation process as you would on the products themselves. This is a great habit to adopt, since many common mistakes that can happen prior to installation can lead to unsavory results.
Long before the contractors arrive, you’ll want to have a perfectly prepared landing spot for your new carpeting. Disassemble your space by carefully relocating furnishings, art, and knick-knacks. From there, we advise a thorough vacuuming of your old carpet. Once your old carpet is removed, you’ll want to repeat this process. Why? Because even the tiniest remaining particles of debris, padding, and other messy matter can affect how your new carpet will look – and perform.
