We’re sure that your main concern about getting carpet that you like is your budget. You did just buy a house, after all. But don’t worry, investing in your floor may seem like an expensive endeavor, but its going to pay off in the long run. Think of your cabinets, for example. Do you want to install cheap cabinets just to remove them and install new ones down the line? Of course not. Save yourself a headache or two and get a product you’ll enjoy for fifteen years or more. The trick is knowing what you need versus what you want. To make this easier on you, we broke the important aspects down for you. Performance If you plan on staying in your new home for a while, you’re going to need carpet that will last that duration of time. Once again, why settle for a product you’ll replace in three years or less. The value of your carpet isn’t found in the price tag. It’s found in the performance and satisfaction your carpeting provides. Invest in a floor that will last. You’ll be better off in the long run. Style Points It might seem enticing to select what’s trendy, but some carpet trends come and go in the blink of an eye. To keep your home stylish and looking good, select a color of carpet that can work with multiple design ideas. Neutral colors like beige, gray, and taupe are great choices. By no means are we saying you can’t select what you want. That’s completely up to you. Just remember you have to live with what you choose, so pick wisely. Quality If you’re looking for something cheap to lay down quickly, it’ll make you happy for a little while. Unfortunately, that’ll fade out quickly.

  • Keeping Michigan Money in Michigan
    Whether it’s food, products, or services, the economic benefits of local shopping are evident. What are the benefits of buying locally made products? Glad you asked. Since The Carpet Guys believe in supporting Michigan economy by keeping the money you spend with us right here in Michigan, we can answer your question. 5 Reasons to Join the Buy Local Movement For this conversation, we’re sticking to the service portion of shopping local mainly because we don’t offer food or edible flooring. Improving the Local Economy As a Michigander, the money you spend on local businesses in your home state keeps a majority of that cash cycling through the community. Owners of local businesses tend to refer their customers to other local establishments for both personal and business reasons. For example, our owner, Joe Zago, is huge on bettering Michigan’s local economy and has developed multiple community relationships for that purpose. Simply put, by purchasing flooring from a locally-owned carpet store like us, you help Michigan’s economy with every dollar spent. Know Who You’re Buying From One of the coolest things about buying local is knowing the people you’re purchasing a product from. With national chains, you’ll most likely never know who is the head of the team. Service and buying processes are more personal and relational than simply picking up a product off a store shelf. You don’t get this personal investment with a big box chain. On top of that, you’ve got a better chance of getting something fixed when it goes wrong. For example, The Carpet Guys offer lifetime installation warranties on the projects we handle. If anything related to installation goes wrong, we’ll fix it for free. Community Uniqueness One of the best thing about traveling is all the unique shops and places you get to visit while there. It’s the local stores that make a community unique. As a local, it makes sense to buy from the shops in your town. You help them stay in business and the unique flair of your community continues forward. Quality Customer Service As a locally-owned business, we aim to offer high-quality attentive service to our customers. You’ve got better chances of this kind of white-glove treatment with a local company vs. a national chain any day. You’ve also got a better chance of the business owner having personal connections with all their employees. This means there’s a personal approach… Read more »

  • Carrots, Radishes, and Carpet
    What the heck do carrots and radishes have to do with carpet? This is probably what you’re thinking right now. If you’ve ever looked at the extra information on carpet samples, some of them have a diagram that shows a radish and a carrot. This diagram refers to the carpet color dying process, which we will explain. Piece Dyed vs. Solution Dyed Carpet If you cut open a carrot, you’ll see that the orange color goes all the way through it. If you cut open a radish, the purple-reddish color is only skin deep. The rest of it is a bright white. The same concept is applied to solution dyed carpet and piece dyed carpet. Solution Dyed Carpet Solution dying is used to add color to synthetic fibers. The dye is added when the fiber is in liquid form. The liquid is pressed through tiny holes in a machine and then drawn out to create the yarn. When the yarn comes out, the desired carpet colors are already applied because of the previously added dye. Solution dying creates the most colorfast yarn because the color is added earlier in the creation process. The color is locked in tight and goes all the way through the fiber like a carrot. On top of that, solution dyed fiber benefits the environment by saving water usage, energy usage, and the chemicals used are eco-friendly and cost-effective. Piece Dyed Carpet Piece dying takes place after the carpet is made. While piece dying creates bright tones and a larger variety of color, it only penetrates the outer surface of the fibers. The rest of it doesn’t absorb the color. The piece dying method is more laborious and requires more chemicals and additives. It’s not as environmentally friendly as solution dyed fibers and stains are more likely to sit in the carpet. If you have more questions about this, feel free to ask your design consultant during your free carpet estimate. Our guys are full of information and have answers for any questions you may have.

  • What Carpet Should You Buy if You’re Moving?
    First, we’d like to congratulate you and finding a new home! Now you’re in the process of selling your old house, and you want as much money as you can get for it. Did you know that installing carpet boosts the value of your home and increases its chances of being purchased? Buying carpet for selling a home is one of the best decisions you can make when putting your house up on the market. It’s a well-known fact that new carpet makes it easier for a buyer to see themselves in the house. It takes a little bit of stress off their shoulders while they plan out their desired improvements. Think about it. No one wants to buy a home that has old stained carpet from the early 70’s. A worn out carpet isn’t going to help you get top dollar for your home either. Replacing your old carpet is our best tip for selling your home, and we’re going to help you do it right with these three focus points: CostSubfloor ImperfectionsPersonal PreferenceType of CarpetCarpet Color Let’s get started. Cost of Carpet One thing to keep in mind is that prices on carpet vary from product to product and company to company. Keep an eye out for deals and specials that carpet companies offer. Some flooring companies may try to swing you over to installing hardwood to sell your home. While hardwood does offer the best resale value, carpet is much more affordable. Your project may require trims and moldings as well, so be sure to ask the company you work with about that. Some people try to sneak in extra costs for those without telling you. If you work with The Carpet Guys, we’ll tell you everything you’ll need up to complete your project upfront. No hidden prices and no cutting corners. You’ll also save your hard earned money. Subfloor Problems If you’ve considered installing hardwood prior to selling, one thing you need to keep in mind is your subfloor. If your subfloor isn’t level, you’ll notice after the wood is installed. Carpet hides these imperfections and minimizes the appearance of any imperfections. It also reassures any potential buyer that it’s a minor concern that can be lived with or repaired. We’re not saying that you’re hiding this from buyers. Your real estate agent will give you good advice on this. Personal Preference This point applies to… Read more »

  • Considering Carpet Performance
    Have you ever heard of a carpet rating scale before? Simply put, it gauges how well your carpet will perform.No one wanst carpet that’ll ugly out in three years, so carpet performance is important to consider when you start shopping around. Carpet performance rating is affected by three things: Product QualityInstaller ExperienceProper Maintenance Let’s take five minutes and break these down for you. It’ll make selecting the right carpet for your home a little easier. Carpet Quality and Performance If you’ve got an active home environment with some kids and a dog, you’ll need high-traffic carpet for sure. The last thing you want to do is buy a cheap carpet that’ll get destroyed in two years time. We understand how tempting it can be to buy carpet based off price alone, but trust us, it’ll hurt in the long run. Investing in carpet that will withstand your type of home environment will pay off in the end. Think of this way. You’re not going to buy a sports car when you need a vehicle that has great gas mileage. Why would you buy carpet that does well in low-traffic conditions for your busy and active living room? It doesn’t make sense. Start looking at high-quality durable carpet from trusted carpet brands like DreamWeaver and Mohawk. We carry a ton of their products if you’d like to see some. Importance of Craftsmanship Even if you select the most durable carpet on the planet, a novice carpet installer won’t get you the best performance out of your floors. Improper installation can lead to a ton of problems and a splitting headache for you and your family. It’s important for you to hire a professional carpet installation company that knows what they’re doing. The carpet installers on our team know how to handle your project. Whatever needs you have, we’ll make sure our crews handle it properly. Call us biased, but our installers are some of the best in the business. After all, “carpet” is our middle name.
