Cut Pile Carpet

Cut Pile CarpetCut pile carpet like most carpets can be made out of different fibers such as nylon, polyester and wool.  Cut pile is one of the most popular styles of carpet for your entire home and comes in a variety of colors and even patterns.  Cut pile carpets are produced  by cutting the yarn loops which creates an upright pile that has a more upscale look and a softer feel under your feet than loop pile carpet.

Cut pile is a type of carpet that is sheared, exposing the ends of the carpet fiber.  Cut piles come in various lengths and thicknesses.   When selecting a cut pile carpet it is important to look at  the twist.  A tighter twist makes the carpet more durable and helps the fibers to stand up and resist matting.  It also creates texture which minimizes wear patterns.

Cut pile carpets differ based on the length and thickness of the fiber. 

Frieze carpeting has long twisted fibers,  Saxony has short fibers cut to an even length.

  • Saxony is a classical cut pile carpet.  Its fibers stand upright and are cut in even lengths. There are two types of Saxony: straight and textured.
  • Straight Saxony  carpet fibers go in the same direction and create a consistent attractive look. The downside is that it shows  footprints and vacuum strokes.
  • Textured Saxony has carpet fibers that are twisted into different directions.  It is much better at hiding footprints and vacuum lines.
  • Frieze carpet isn’t  as long as a traditional shag carpet, but it can have long, twisty fibers, or  it can have a shorter  twisty pile.
  • Frieze carpet hardly shows footprints,  vacuum lines and is good at hiding a stain.  It’s very durable  and soft on your feet.

      Residential Carpet

      “Carpet has gone through tremendous changes over the last 10 years, Although, still the most affordable option for any residential space, carpet has become way more stylish, stain resistant, and soft. The beige “only” option of the past has been replaced with an assortment of colors, patterns, and designs."



    I went with Coventry Carpet because of the multiple 5 Star reviews and I was not disappointed! I made the phone call and within a couple of days Scot came out to measure, show us some samples, and give us a quote. I found the quote to be extremely reasonable for a very good quality of carpet and pad. Just before installation day, the office called to confirm and answer any questions, letting us know the installers would arrive between 9:00 and 9:30 am. By 9:20 am Fermin and Billy showed up at our front door ready to work. I must say, these two were incredible - hard working and true professionals! We bought pizza for them and they didn't even stop to eat! The carpet looks beautiful - just what we wanted. I would have no reservations recommending Conventry Carpets to anyone wanting to have carpet installed quickly, professionally, and at a reasonable price!
