In a way, the floor in a room represents the "fifth wall" and it is often the largest uninterrupted block of color and design. With a host of benefits to its credit, wall-to-wall carpet is justifiably the most popular flooring choice in North America.
Choice: The possibilities are virtually unlimited with the vast array of textures and colors that carpeting offers. From subdued neutral tones, to rich solids, to intricate patterns, there are a multitude of options that cover every taste, purpose, function and budget.
Insulation: Carpet, and the extra layer of padding beneath it, acts as a natural insulator against cold and heat, increasing the R-value (a measure of thermal resistance) of the carpeted area, and by extension, its energy efficiency.
Easy Care: With today’s technology, carpeting is more stain-resistant than ever, making it a suitable choice for even high-traffic, mess-prone areas.
Safety: Especially important for children and the elderly, carpet provides both a non-slip surface to prevent falls in the first place, and a natural cushion that absorbs the body’s impact in the event of a fall.
Air Quality: Contrary to a popular myth, EPA scientists have confirmed if properly cleaned and maintained, carpet actually improves indoor air quality by trapping and immobilizing potential allergens.
Durability: Carpets today are remarkably durable and are suitable for both residential and commercial settings, with specially treated fibers that hold up to wear, friction, soil and stains.
Sound Insulation: No other flooring choice offers the peace and quiet, and added privacy of carpet. Carpet absorbs noise, muffles clatter, and enhances both room-to-room and floor-to-floor privacy.
Comfort and Warmth: In any room, carpeting adds a plush layer of comfort underfoot, plus actual and visual warmth and depth.
