Carpet & Vinyl
Carpet Style and Selection
We could write a book on carpet that can explain the different methods of construction, materials used and applications for installation. But what we want to let you know is that carpet despite what you might think is probable the most used floor covering still used today. Yes, many bedrooms, family rooms and stairs in homes are still being covered with carpet for new construction and flooring renovations. But with all the office towers, hotels, and elder care facilities buildings carpet is still the most versatile floor covering out there.
There is everything from carpet in tiles, Frieze(AKA Shag), textured plush, or carpets with different patterns and styles. There is a carpet for every budget. Some carpets can go for 14 a yard to $600 a yard. What you can usually say about the installation process is that the better the carpet the better the installation needed.
In many cases carpets can be made to order and should not be seemed, or if seeming is needed then special glues or spray’s may be needed to prevent fraying.
What else you might want to know about carpet is the resistance it might have to chemicals or it’s built in stain resistance.
