Definitions of different types of carpet:

When you are looking to purchase a carpet, there are several options. Most commonly selected is cut pile which is usually a “textured" carpet that allows you durability, softness and does not show footprints or vacuum marks.

Here is some basic knowledge to educate on what to ask for when you need a carpet.

Cut Pile Carpet- this is where loops in the carpet are trimmed.

Pattern Long loop- This is where the loops add texture by having different sizes of loop height in the carpet.

When you have both loops and cuts, it can achieve different patterns.

What is Berber? Berber is loop pile construction that has lighter backgrounds but specks of a darker shade of color. They are very cost-effective, and they do great in high traffic areas and are very modern in look.

Hardwood Floors

Carpet Hut offers a variety of hardwoods for your flooring needs. Because of the diversity, we know that we have the right product for your home or business. We have installation professionals.

Solid Hardwood: Is made of 3/4 wood. It will expand and contrast naturally with climate change and Humidity. Solid Wood Requires nail down installation on the proper floor service.

Engineered Woods are typically between 3 to 5 layers of hardwood that are glued together and cross-grained which helps prevent the expansion of gaps during climate changes.

Exotic Wood: Has natural color all the way through the wood and have just a topcoat of clear urethane; most are hard then oak because of the altitude in which the tree was grown.

Bamboo                                      

Bamboo is available in two forms strand or vertical. It is a 'Green Product' because of the rapid re-growth generally taking 5-6 years. This is because it is a treelike substance. It is always available in a solid or energized structure.

Shag Carpet

Frieze “Shag” Carpets This type of carpet has high fibers and is great for wear and durability and can hide seams in carpets. Make sure you buy a frieze carpet with excellent stain resistance as it can be a tad higher to clean in big spills and stains.
