With so many different carpeting types available, its important to understand the physical properties and performance expectations of our many products:

Frieze Carpet

Frieze carpeting is exceptionally soft and comes crafted in a cut-pile construction. Frieze's durable curling fibers are known for their ability to camouflage dirt and debris.

Loop & Loop Cut Carpet

Loop Carpeting is crafted with a surface of uncut loop fibers. A level-loop carpet style comes woven or tufted, with a same-height loop surface. A multi-loop carpet consists of loops with two or three different pile heights. These carpets offer a casual look that is good for hiding foot traffic. Alternatively, cut-loop carpeting is designed just as it sounds. In this case, the loop fibers have been cut straight, offering a snag-free consistency that is popular for those with children or pets.

Patterned Carpet

Carpets containing patterns are created using methods similar to printing paper. These methods include flatbed screen printing, rotary screen printing, Stalwart printing, and modern computer-programmed jet printing. 

Saxony & Textured Saxony Carpet

Saxony carpets are manufactured as cut-pile carpets that can add a touch of luxury to any room in your home. Saxony Type patterns are resistant to wear, shading, and footmarks in your home. Textured Saxony uses the same fiber types, though they’ve been twisted in different directions to offer a coarser appearance.

Berber Carpet

Berber carpet has a unique style and a cushiony feeling underfoot that can be found in various pile heights and can be constructed as a level-loop or multi-loop carpet, depending on your preference. Berber's natural strength and soil hiding capabilities make it a go-to floor for active areas in the home. The loop design of the carpet fibers not only looks attractive but also provides a soft cushion underfoot.

The Benefits & Easy Maintenance of Carpet Flooring

Carpet benefits go beyond the sheer comfort and warmth of Berber or Saxony choices. Prevent slippage and provide a safe place for your child to play when you invest in any of our carpet models. Keeping your home warm in the winter is easier with carpeting rather than colder surfaces like tile or hardwood, which can sometimes lead to loss of heat through cracks or spaces. When it comes to cleaning, simply vacuum your carpet twice a week to remove built-up dirt or debris. We understand that customers fear stains or spills with most carpet investments. The fibers from our brand choices are designed to resist immediate absorption, giving you time to wipe away any messes with a cloth. If stains begin to accumulate in time, we suggest annual professional cleanings. Consult a member of our staff for carpet cleaning product recommendations and check your warranty before purchasing chemical-based cleaning solutions.
