 Comfortable. Colorful. Versatile.

There are many reasons why carpet is one of the most popular types of floor covering.
There’s nothing like the soft feel of a nice carpet. Warm in winter and cool in summer, it makes any room more inviting as a place to relax with friends … a place for the kids to play … a cozy, yet stylish place to feel at home. Plus, with so many styles and colors to choose from, it’s easy to find the right carpet for every décor and every taste.

There are 3 basic types of carpeting: 1) Cut Pile, 2) Loop Pile and 3) Cut & Loop Pile. Pile refers to the fiber yarns which are tufted or sewn into the backing. How these yarns are cut and twisted helps determine the texture and durability of the carpet. In addition, most of the fibers are either synthetic or natural wool, which offer varying degrees of wear and stain resistance.
The easy-care features of today’s advanced stain resistant carpets allow you enjoy a beautiful floor for many years. Simply vacuum regularly, clean up spills promptly, and have your carpet professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

Need Stain Protection?

Our NO EXCLUSION stain warranty will provide the protection you need!  That’s right, NO EXCLUSIONS.  Red wine, pet stains, mustard and even those unidentified stains. Better than any manufacturer warranty, hands down. They’re all covered!  Stop in to learn more about our 3M Everguard Stain Protection plan – you’ll have the ultimate protection and peace of mind.


We carry a large selection of all carpet styles, colors and types of carpet.  And, all major carpet brands including Stainmaster, Shaw, Mohawk, Beaulieu, Lee’s, Stainmaster, Tigressa, Resista, Masland, Dixie, Fabrica and many more.


Formal or casual, carpet can add a warm feel to any room. Of course, not every style of carpet is designed for every type application. Read below to help select the best styles for your needs.

For formal settings, both Plush (Velvet) and Saxony carpet styles have a smooth texture with a luxurious look and feel. Saxony is more resilient than Plush, so it can be used in higher traffic areas.

For versatility in casual situations, durable carpet styles like Textured Saxony, curly textured Frieze and popular Berber wear well in playrooms, workrooms, basements and other active areas.

Although Shag carpet offers a relaxed, informal style, its deep, twisted yarn texture tends to mat easily and should only be used in lighter traffic areas.
And for family rooms or other casual rooms where people are on the floor a lot, Cable carpet has a thick, soft texture that wears better than regular shag.
