What scale is flooring measured in?
Most carpet is measured in Linear or ‘Broadloom’ metres – rather than square metres. A broadloom refers to the width of the loom. In most cases it will be 3.66 metres although it can be as low as 2.0 metres and as high as 4.0 metres. Most hard flooring is measured in metres squared but calculated in pack size.
Can I buy products online?
What can I buy in store?
Flooring and window furnishings can be purchased in store. Flooring can include carpet, timber, laminate and hybrid varieties, while carpet purchased can include synthetic, wool and wool blends. It is important to note that each Carpet Court store is different and that it is best to contact your local Carpet Court store to find out what product they stock.
Do Carpet Court remove existing floor coverings?
In most cases we can remove and dispose of your existing floor coverings ahead of your new flooring being installed – this is done for a minimal cost. When you are ready to go ahead with your new flooring let your local Carpet Court staff member know and they can provide a quote for you. Otherwise, you can of course do this yourself or organise for this to be done ahead of your new flooring installation.
How important is underlay?
The manufacturers of underlay produce a range of qualities, all of which will be adequate under your new carpet. At Carpet Court we sell a wide range of underlays, all of which are very well-respected brands.
When choosing your carpet, ask to step on it with the different underlays under it to assist you in making the best decision. Each will give you a different feel and you can then choose the one that you prefer. The higher the quality of underlay the more luxurious it will feel to your feet, the more support it will give your new carpet and the quieter it will make your home, especially in second floor installations and on staircases.
Can I keep my existing underlay?
It is recommended that you change your underlay when you replace your carpet. Underlay wears as the carpet wears, leaving it with the wear patterns of the old carpet. It is important to note that a manufacturer may void a carpets warranty if laid on old underlay.
What are the different types of carpet to choose from?
Carpet Court sell a range of carpet products in synthetic, wool and wool blends. Different carpet types on offer also include loop, plush and twist.
Loop pile carpet is made by threading the fibres through carpet backing and then looped over. The benefit of a loop pile carpet is that they hold their shape and do not easily shift under impact.
Plush carpet pile is beautifully soft, offering excellent comfort and luxuriousness at an affordable price – making it a great option for family households.
Wool twist pile carpet naturally repels moisture and light soiling, while a synthetic twist pile carpet is highly durable and resistant to stains and soiling, so both are great options for busy family homes.
These factors mean that there are several different carpet combinations to choose from. Also available in a large range of different colours and styles – you are sure to find the perfect type of carpet to suit the look and feel you are wanting to achieve.
How do I know which type of carpet to choose?
Choosing carpet can be a tough decision, however there are certainly several factors to consider which should assist you in making the best choice. Do you live in a cooler climate? If so, a wool carpet could work well in your home. If you have a busy family household then you may want to consider a carpet that is stain resistant.
The type of underlay used under carpet is also an important factor and will impact on the way in which the carpet feels once installed. Underlay is an essential part of any carpet purchase, so it is important to keep this in mind when choosing the best carpet to suit your needs. When purchasing new carpet like any new product, it is also important to understand the warranty conditions of the specific supplier.
If you are interested in purchasing an eco-friendly carpet, there are several options that are made from renewably sourced polymers. Simply ask the friendly staff at your local Carpet Court store for details.
