When carpet is manufactured strands of yarn are sewn into the backing material which creates thousands of yarn loops. When the loops are cut a cut pile carpet is created. This is known as plush, textured and frieze carpet. When the loops remain uncut, a loop carpet is created.
Berber is a low-profile carpet that is made with thick loops of yarn. It is designed for a casual and comfortable style and works great in high traffic areas.
Frieze is made with twisted fibers and has a distinct shaggy look to it. The long pile lies in different directions, which provides a deep texture and a luxurious feel. It is extremely durable.
Plush has a softer velvet appearance and has a smooth, level surface. It makes for a more formal look but can show tracking from footprints or vacuuming.
Patterned carpet has a combination of both cut and looped yarns that creates a visual affect with patterns such as squared, dotted or other geometric designs.
Commercial & Carpet Tiles
Commercial carpet can be either wall-to-wall broadloom carpet or a mosaic of patterned carpet tiles. Commercial grade carpet is ideal for heavy, daily foot traffic. It is specifically designed for extreme durability and maintenance.
Indoor/Outdoor carpet can be used in an interior room or covered exterior spaces such as sunrooms, patios, and porches. It is made to resist moisture, fading from sunlight and mildew.
