One of the oldest and truest types of flooring. Nothing can replicate the warmth and softness of carpet. The feel of the
carpet fibers wrapping around your feet with every step cannot be imitated. Carpet is the ever forgiving flooring. It’s not
affected by scratches, breaks or warps that can affect its hard surface counterparts. The newest trends of carpet
consist of more sophisticated elegant patterned designs. These new designs give the carpet a three-dimensional
appearance and pattern which gives it more of an artistic and elegant look.
Advancements in carpet fiber technology and in carpet construction are making carpets softer, more stain-resistant
and helping retain their like-new appearance far better than ever before. Among the most popular choices in carpeting
construction with homeowners today are berber carpet, patterned carpets and textured cut pile saxonies that don’t
show foot prints or traffic patterns. These advances extent to the underpad as well, they can now block spills from
penetrating and soaking the subfloor which in turn also helps eliminate carpet odour.

overwhelming. Let one of our project managers lighten your load. We will break it down for you. A series of simple
questions will reduce the crowd of options to just a minority. Foremost, we decide on a carpet family; are you
interested in Synthetic or Natural carpet? We then move on to the shade spectrum; light, medium, or dark. Next we
would choose whether or not you want a pattered carpet. With these simple questions answered, our project
managers will be able to select a handful of carpet samples for you to choose from.
Carpets come in both traditional rolls and carpet tiles. The rolls often come in 12’ to 15’ to accommodate
different room sizes. Carpet tiles usually come in 2’ by 2’ tiles that glue to the floor. These are especially
popular for commercial spaces. Since a single tile can be replaced easily, if it is damaged by stains or
burns, without ripping out the entire floor.
Carpet is more forgiving when installed over uneven subfloors, such as an uneven concrete slab. Carpet
installation is also very fast, efficient and cost effective. This is an advantage as a cost standpoint for the
Underpad offers a great solution for insulating both acoustics and temperature. Choosing the right carpet
underpad can easily double your carpet’s lifetime. Basic granite foam is available as well as natural wool
felt. Rubber underlay has one of the highest densities available. It all comes down to one number. The
