An Introduction to Carpet
Nothing says home like new carpet. It is a smart and popular flooring choice for many commercial and residential applications like offices, lobbies, bedrooms, playrooms and finished basements. Even outdoor decks can be enhanced with a suitable outdoor carpet. Whether you need carpet for a high-traffic family or business area or want a beautiful look and style to complement a room, carpet is a surprisingly versatile and customizable flooring option.
You'll love our carpets because they are durable and long lasting. They will also add value to your home and make it look beautiful! They are made from high quality materials so you can be sure they will last for years.
What To Know About Carpet Installation
A qualified pro will have the experience and knowledge needed to get the job done right the first time.

This will help ensure you’ve got coverage and support if unforeseen issues should arise.
Carpet installation is hard work and requires a variety of tools and supplies the average DIY enthusiast might not have on hand. A professional installer will have a broad range of equipment to work with.

Frequently Asked Questions About Carpet
Polyester carpet fiber offers style, value, and even sustainability, along with durability, stain protection, and fade resistance at a valuable price point. Triexta fiber is an incredibly stain-resistant, eco-friendly, and durable carpet fiber. Polypropylene fiber, better known as olefin, boasts outstanding moisture and stain resistance, making it an excellent fit for indoor-outdoor carpet use and entranceways. SmatStrand boasts increased durability and the ability to handle pet accidents. And wool is an affordable and eco-friendly option.
When you see the terms “loop pile” and “cut pile” when shopping for carpet, this refers to the carpet’s construction and how carpet fibers are attached to the carpet backing. Loop pile construction features fibers that are bent into small loops, which creates durable, stain-resistant, low-profile carpets. Level-cut loop carpets are excellent for resisting foot traffic and make a great fit for entryways, hallways, and stairs.
We always recommend hiring licensed installation professionals to handle your carpet installation. Carpet can be glued down directly to a concrete floor or glued to a carpet pad that is glued directly to the floor using a tack strip. Stretch-in carpet installation is a popular, efficient method for residential homes. This process involves strips of wood with protruding angled nails secured to the edges of a room, attaching the carpet to the nails, and then stretching the carpet tight across the room.
The best general carpet care starts with investing in the right vacuum cleaner that matches your carpet type and vacuuming your carpet weekly to remove damaging particles. If you have pets in the home, you should trim pet nails and claws to avoid snagging the carpet and creating scratches, brush your cats and dogs regularly to reduce pet dander, and make sure to complete house-training before your pets can spend time on the carpet.
