How come there are seams in my carpet?

July 13, 2019 at 11:43 pm

When seams are made, even properly, they can be noticeable. The type of carpet, and the light source coming across the seam will affect how noticeable the seam is. Professional installers will minimize the seam placement, but that does not mean the seam will be invisible,  just like clothing, you need to put the seam together, and they can and will be noticeable. You can’t put in carpet like pouring concrete.  Seams are a part of almost all carpet installations.

Carpet rolls come in three sizes: 12’, 15’, and 13’ 6”.  This means if your room size is bigger than this or you have long hallways, you will have seams in your room. Some carpets hide seams better than others but it is important to realize that seams will never be invisible.  A good carpet installer will be able to place it in such a way it has minimal impact.

Carpet Install

Carpets seam differently

Depending on the size and traffic in a room, you can choose carpets where seams will be less noticeable. Berber carpets are the most difficult to hide seams. This means you should have a realistic expectation if you choose this type of carpeting. Shag carpets and twists are the easiest to seam because the loose pile blend well when installed.

Acceptable seams

You may hear acceptable seam when looking at carpets. Seams are visible when they are used to install your carpeting. They are even more noticeable when you know where they are. An acceptable seam will have the carpet backings flush with one another. They should not have gaps or overlays. Berber carpet should be cut lengthwise along the bias, never cut with a cross seam as it will be more noticeable.

Custom Stair Runners beautify your home

June 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

Stair runners add class and beauty upon entering a home.  Carpet stair runners transform an ordinary staircase into an elegant entry way into your home.  They are often times referred to as works of art.  and make a statement about the home.  Stair runners reduce noise made by people going up and down the stairs, and they add a decorative look to a stairway.  A runner also protects both treads and risers from wear and tear.

Wool or synthetic fiber?

A stair runner is usually more decorative than standard carpet and is  woven for stair use. Stair runners are typically woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers.  The fiber comes in a variety of styles and prices.
Either fiber is great and can be said to be better than the other in different ways.  With a runner, you don’t typically want to go too light or too dark. Dark show lint, while light-colored carpeting shows dirt and scuffs. IN most cases a medium tone is the best option.  Our experts at Coventry will provide our customers with all of the information necessary regarding the differences and help you make the right choice for your home.

Stair runner installation:
They are usually installed over a dense carpet pad with small hidden staples. This keeps the carpeting from moving.  Having a properly installed stair runner is critical for it  to perform well and last for a long time.  Incorrect installation can result in a safety risk and reduce the life of the runner.  At Coventry we deal with all types of staircases and we have a lifetime installation guarantee.

Maintaining your stair runner:

1.       Vacuuming  on a regular basis.

2.       Clean or remove shoes when entering the home.

3.       Keep the floors by the stairs clean.

4.       Professional carpet cleaner yearly.

Coventry Flooring provides a lifetime installation guarantee on all of our work!

Higher Tariffs are coming to Vinyl Flooring

May 22, 2019 at 6:58 pm

Tariffs on vinyl flooring from China started at 10% in September of 2018 and are currently subject to a  25%  tariff on all new orders.  Goods in transit as of last week will not be subject to the additional tariff.  Inventory already on hand is also not subject to the additional 15% tariff. Chinese imports of vinyl flooring  are at least 55 percent of the U.S. market so this will be a large tax for anyone purchasing vinyl flooring after the next couple of weeks.

Many U.S. vinyl flooring and tile makers are pushing for tariffs on Chinese vinyl flooring saying  it will result in more domestic investment and jobs. Importers know it will lead to higher prices on vinyl products and increase the cost of new homes.  Many people will either postpone their home renovation project or purchase a less expensive product.

If you are considering vinyl tile for your home of offices you would be advised to start looking immediately and purchase what you need within the next two weeks or end up paying more because of the tariff. Vinyl tile is still very affordable and durable which is why it is the most popular type of flooring currently. This could change as people start using other products such as carpeting which is even less expensive and is almost as popular as vinyl flooring currently.  At Coventry flooring we offer carpeting and vinyl flooring and can give you a cost comparison after coming to your home or business and measuring the areas that need flooring.

WHATEVER YOUR FLOORING NEEDS
WE HAVE YOU COVERED!

If you are looking for exceptional customer service and the best deals on vinyl flooring or carpet in the “Denver Metro” area we are the company for you.  Give us a call to schedule a meeting at our Denver showroom located close to 8th avenue and I-25 or for an in home estimate with our mobile showroom.
