  • Good, Better, and Best
    In the carpet and flooring industry, it’s natural that some products will perform better than others. The “Good, Better, Best” formula is an efficient way to gauge how the carpet you want will look and perform. Why settle for good carpet when you can have the best? Let’s say you just moved into your forever home, and you’re looking to get new carpet installed. You don’t want to buy cheap carpet that’ll ugly out in a few years. You’ll want to invest in carpeting that will last for fifteen years or longer. A big mistake some homeowners make is buying entry level carpet just because of a low price. It may look good for a little while, but it won’t stay that way for long. We’re not saying that entry level carpet is bad in any way. If you’re selling your home and want to help out the people who will buy your home, an entry level carpet is a great option to lay down to boost the aesthetics of the home. You’re right to consider price when shopping for carpet, but don’t ignore the fact that investing in a cheap product off a store’s shelf will only lead to a disappointing performance and ugly look earlier than expected. A mid-level or luxury level carpet has better texture retention and performance, so it’ll last a lot longer than your entry level products. There’s also less of a chance that footprints will show up. Affordable Rates on Quality Carpet Don’t let the words “luxury” and “best” fool you. You can get top quality carpet at an affordable price.Here at The Carpet Guys, we offer great prices on some of the best carpet products on the market. We want you to have the carpet of your dreams in your home, so we work with your budget.

  • Considering the Lifespan of Carpet
    Like every good thing in life, carpet doesn’t last forever. The longevity of your carpet depends on the quality of the product and how well you take care of it.Before you buy new carpet for your home, there are a few things you need to consider. How Long do You Need it? The answer to this is all determined by your lifestyle. If you’ve got a super active household, you’ll need a durable carpet that will stand up to the heavy foot-traffic.If your home is peaceful with little foot-traffic, you don’t need the most high-end long lasting carpeting on the market. Your main concern is keeping your carpet looking nice and clean, so consider the different options of carpet available. Maybe a tightly wound Berber carpet will be best for your high-traffic living room instead of the puffy plush carpeting you want. Maybe the plush will last longer in your bedroom instead.If you need carpet that will last longer and not wear out in a few years, look for a higher-end product. The Quality of the Product If you need carpet that’ll last for 15 years, the last thing you want is a cheap quality product.You know the saying “you get what you pay for”? That applies to everything including carpet and flooring. A cheap carpet may look good at first, but it could wear out in three years. You need to invest in your new carpet. It may not be the cheapest project you’ll complete, but a high-quality carpet will benefit you in the long run.We have a ton of high-quality carpet products at affordable prices, so schedule a free carpet estimate with us to see samples right in your own home. Carpet Installer Experience Sometimes it’s not the product that’s an issue, but the craftsmanship from the installer is. Before you buy any carpeting, make sure the installer you work with knows what he’s doing.There’s nothing worse than getting carpet installed and experiencing problems right off the bat. You have to do a little homework before you select and carpet installation company. Unless you work with The Carpet Guys, that is. Why bother spending all your time looking for a company to put your carpet in place when you’ve already found the best?If you’re reading this, then you most likely already know what you want and what you need, right?

  • Before and After: $5,000 Contest Winner!
    Yesterday, we had the privilege to install new carpet for Darcy in Trenton, Michigan. Darcy is our recent $5,000 dollar contest winner and she allowed us to take photos of her project, so we decided to show it to you all! Darcy’s home was built in the late 60s or early 70s and was initially covered in a cream white carpet. Darcy came across the carpet “Spellbound” by Shaw Floors during a showroom visitation and immediately knew that was the carpet for her. Spellbound is a beautiful and comfortable blue-gray plush carpeting. Shaw really outdid themselves with this one, but we will let this living room photo do the talking. We installed Spellbound in many of her rooms including: 1. Kitchen 2. Living Room 3. Den 4. Staircases 5. Landing 6. Hallway 7. Dining AreaDarcy’s project was a big one and came with a few challenges that our guys didn’t expect.Over time, the old carpet and the padding underneath started to wear out and fall apart. A prime example is the padding we found below the carpeting in the den. The original rubber waffle padding that was installed underneath the old carpet became extremely sticky and needed to be scraped off. As the room went through multiple temperature fluctuations, the padding turned into an adhesive rather than a cushion. With a lot of elbow grease and determination, our guys were able to get all of the padding off the tile underneath. After we scraped all the rubber waffle pad off, the new padding was rolled out. The padding we use is a premium eight-pound pad. This is recommended by all manufacturers to ensure a lasting life for your carpet. Once the padding was out, we rolled out the carpet and put it in place. Immediately after the new carpet install, the room felt so much bigger and comfortable. It took two days to complete the project, and Darcy’s house has now been transformed. Spellbound looks fantastic in her home, and we are excited that she’ll be enjoying her new carpeting for years to come.

  • 8 Signs You Need to Replace Your Old Carpet
    Have you ever walked into your house, looked at your old carpet, and just thought “yuck”? Carpeting adds a beautiful flair to any room, but like anything in life, it wears out, and the indications are not hard to see. Here are eight tell-tale signs that show you need to replace your old carpet and give your rooms a makeover. 1. Stains and More Stains If you’ve cleaned you carpeting over and over and those nasty stains are still sitting there mocking you, it’s to renew your carpet. Believe it or not, it will be more cost-effective by getting new carpet rather than endlessly cleaning your carpeting. 2. Nasty Carpet Smells Whether it’s from food, your pets, or the outdoor elements, a nasty smell means it’s time to renovate your carpeting. Sometimes, the deepest cleaning can’t remove nasty carpet odors that are stuck in the fibers and padding of your floor. 3. Wear and Tear Carpet can last up to 15 to 20 years when it’s properly taken care of and protected. But if there’s too much wear and tear, then that carpet has met its end. If your carpet has holes, tears, and rips, it’s not going to be much of an eye-catcher. You can try to cover it up with a rug if you’re adamant about keeping your carpeting, but we recommend getting new carpet installed instead. 4. Increase in Allergy Problems People with breathing issues such as asthma and COPD need allergy-friendly carpet in their homes. If your old carpeting is started to affect your breathing, it’s time to invest in a new carpet that will work with you. We carry many of these products, so ask your design consultant if you have this requirement. 5. Worn Out Carpet Padding It’s a well-known fact that proper carpet padding is important for your carpeting’s life span. Over time, just like carpet, pad starts to wear out as well, especially since it gets walked on every day. Padding can’t be fixed with cleaning, so new carpet is the best solution in this case. 6. Needs an Update As trends change, so does taste. Your carpet could be in fine condition, but if you’re a trendy homeowner, that can be enough to renovate. New carpet adds a much-needed flair to your rooms, especially since floors are more of a focal point nowadays. 7. Mold and Mildew Does carpet get mold… Read more »
  • What is Carpet Density?
    A carpet density rating is one of the factors that determine how well your carpeting will perform. Simply put, carpet density numbers refer to how close together the fibers of your carpet are tufted into the backing. Density is often misconceived as a carpet’s face weight, but these two terms are completely different. Face weight does come into play when you are calculating density, however. How to Calculate Carpet Density To measure carpet density, the following formula is used:1. Carpet face weight multiplied by 362. Divide by carpet pile height3. Equals density measured in ounces per cubic yardFiber height is the length of each carpet fiber from the backing to the tip of the strand itself. In the formula above, we represent the pile height as a fraction of an inch. The number you’ll get from the formula will be a four-digit number. If you’re trying to figure out the density to gauge the quality of your carpeting, don’t use this number alone. The density, face weight, twist, and fiber type number all play a part in quality.Each of those factors is important to keep in mind when selecting the type of carpet you want to get installed. Higher density carpets tend to be more durable, however.Many people say that a carpet density at 3000 or higher is ideal for normal household conditions, but you can discuss those details with your design consultant Skip the Mathematics and make Carpet Easy It’s not a necessity to go through all this math when you have a local carpet company that does it for you. Don’t stress out about checking every carpet density number of carpet samples galore. We have that information for you.

  • 2019 Kitchen Trends of the U.S.A.
    Our friends over at Houzz ran a survey in which 1,337 people gave feedback on how they would be renovating their kitchens in 2019. Based on these findings, Houzz put together a list of what kitchen trends they believe will be sticking around throughout the year. Stay In or Get Out If you’ve ever renovated a room, the majority of you probably leave your house and go out while the work is getting done. This seems to have changed for 2019. According to Houzz’s findings, 66% of homeowners prefer to be present while the renovation takes place. 26% of homeowners move out temporarily and the other 8% move out completely. The people who stay in the home report having less stress during the renovation. This must be because they feel they have more control and know what’s happening in their kitchen. Technologic Additions About 57% of homeowners have upgraded their faucets to high-tech gear. These materials are water-efficient, fingerprint resistant, and touch-free. One in ten upgraded kitchens opt for black stainless steel appliances, and we don’t blame them. Black is perfection. 16% of the other high-tech appliances have features like wireless controls, and home assistant robotics has grown in popularity by 31%. Farmhouse Style and Metal Mixing Although 21% of people agree that transitional kitchen styles are still the most popular option, Houzz found out that farmhouse style kitchens are on the rise by 14% so far, putting it on par with contemporary kitchen styles at 15% of popular votes. Gray cabinets are growing in popularity as well. In our industry, we’re also seeing gray carpet and flooring as one of the most demanded products on the market. Finishings in various metals are also making a statement with hardware types including matte nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and matte black. Engineered Wood Flooring and Materials Homeowners, 40% of them to be exact, are shying away from natural hardwood floors and moving to other better-suited options like: Engineered Hardwood Flooring Luxury Vinyl Plank (See COREtec for Example) Waterproof Laminate Flooring (See RevWood for example) 24% of people still prefer natural hardwood in their kitchen, but that looks like it’s dying out.
