Laminate flooring has become an excellent alternative to hardwood, with the same appearance as natural wood at a significantly lower cost. They are made in layers, with the bottommost layer acting as a backing to enhance the board's ability to resist moisture. The next layer consists of the inner core, which is made from a high-density fiberboard fortified with a melamine resin to further increase durability and provide premium sound absorption. Next is a photographic film layer which contains a high-resolution image, designed to mimic the appearance of solid wood. The final layer is one created specifically to protect the flooring. This clear protective layer creates a durability that can compete with real wood while also providing resistance to wear and damage.
Carpet Market One provides laminate flooring that, aside from being extremely durable, also comes in many different styles, designed especially to imitate specific species of wood. In addition to recreating color and grain patterns, our laminate has a variety of textures and finishes, some of which include distressed, hand scraped, glossy and smooth-surface. In addition, we offer different options for the edges of the flooring, including beveled, wax and square. Whether the theme you are reaching for is contemporary or shabby chic, we have many different styles of laminate at your disposal.
Another benefit of laminate flooring is that it is considered to be a very green option, taking into account that it does not require the same amount of resources as hardwood flooring does. In addition, because it has several protective layers, laminate flooring does not need to be replaced as often. Its durability and moisture resistance also makes laminate ideal for any room. This is especially true when the floors are being installed by our professionals, who have had years of experience with this material. Due to the price, style and durability, laminate has become the obvious choice for residential as well as commercial properties.
Hardwood flooring has been a popular choice among our customers due to its rustic look and lifelong lasting durability. These natural wood floors add character to any room through the richness of their grains, the feel of their texture, and the assortment of colors that vary with each species of timber. The different species that we offer in store, both exotic and domestic, include hickory, maple, oak, ash, birch, walnut, and cherry.
Here at Carpet Market One, we also offer both solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. While solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished many times due to its thickness, it may also expand and contract as the humidity levels in your home changes. Our installers take this into consideration as they leave an expansion gap between the floor and the wall, adding either base molding or quarter-round to hide the extra space. An alternative to this is installing engineered hardwood. Although engineered hardwood is more expensive because it contains three to five layers of wood, it is also less likely to be affected by the changing conditions of its atmosphere. This allows the engineered flooring to be installed in all types of rooms, including bathrooms and basements.
While you have the choice to buy our hardwood directly from the store, we also provide installation services. Our highly skilled installers can perform glue-down, nail-down and floating installations, completing the job with the utmost amount of accuracy to ensure that your floors will last as long as possible. Although hardwood flooring is scratch, stain and fade resistant, the level of durability varies depending on the style, and we are more than happy to aid you in finding the perfect species to compliment the atmosphere of the environment you are creating.
Carpet Flooring can be the perfect choice for any room. At Carpet Market One, we offer a variety of carpet choices for both residential and commercial properties, giving you the freedom to match your flooring with your style. Carpet also takes your comfort into consideration with its ability to absorb sound and provide insulation that guarantees your floor stays warm during winter and cool during summer. Its varying styles, colors, and textures ensure that your floors will be beautiful as well as comfortable.
One of the most enticing qualities of carpet is its high level of versatility. Because it has the ability to be cut into different shapes, carpet is the perfect solution for irregular rooms. In addition, it eliminates the appearance of imperfections caused by subfloor irregularities, whereas hardwood and laminate flooring would make these imperfections even more apparent. Due to advances in fiber technology, carpet has become hypoallergenic as well as stain and wear resistant, making it a very economical flooring option for families with kids and pets.
Beginning with the type of material used and ending with the many different choices in color and style, carpet has endless possibilities for every type of room. Here at Carpet Market One, we have carpet that is made from fiber, polyester, nylon, olefin and even wool. Our styles range from Berber, plush, frieze and shag to varying types of loop and cut. Combine one of these styles with your choice of pattern or color to brighten up any space with a homey yet elegant look.
Our carpet specialists have also been trained to perform both direct and double glue-down as well as stretch-in installations. Whether you are creating an office space or revamping an old bedroom, our expert installers will guarantee that your carpet floors showcase the room to its fullest potential.
Tile Flooring has been popular due to their durability and exquisite beauty. Made from a mixture of natural clay, sand, and water, tile floors are perfect for areas where moisture is prevalent. Here at Carpet Market One, we offer fashionable ceramic, robust porcelain and beautiful natural stone tiles in a multitude of sizes, colors, patterns, and shapes. We also carry slip, scuff, and stain resistant tile floors, making it a perfect choice for any home.
When picking out a tile floor, you have the freedom to choose from a variety of styles. Ceramic and porcelain tiles come in two forms: glazed and unglazed. Glazed tile is made by adding an extra layer of liquid glass in the final manufacturing step. This will add either a gloss or matte finish to the tile, resulting in stylish floors that can match the atmosphere of any room. Unglazed tile, on the other hand, remains porous and is much denser as well as thicker than glazed tile, providing more durability. Depending on the area in which you would like your tile flooring installed, the professionals at Carpet Market One can aid you in picking the perfect style.
Because tile floors are much more durable than any other type of flooring, installations can be tricky. In order for the flooring to be secured in place, a type of cement called grout is used to fill the spaces between each individual tile. At Carpet Market One, we have professionals who have been installing tile for many years and understand that the color of grout used in installation can greatly affect the appearance of your floors. We can guide you in picking the perfect colored grout that will make your tile floors look their best.
Vinyl flooring provides a huge advantage over wood, carpet, and tile for areas with heavy traffic. Inexpensive and highly sturdy, vinyl can be installed in difficult spaces that need extra durability at a low cost. The durability and versatility of vinyl floors are due to its many layers. The bottommost layer acts as a backing for the vinyl core and is made of felt or fiberglass. This built-in cushion underlayment makes floors warmer and softer underfoot than real tile, stone, or wood. Next is the vinyl core, usually composed of colored polyvinyl chloride chips. On top of the core is the decorative layer, which can be made to look like any type of material, ranging from wood to stone and tile. The last layer is the wear layer and can vary in thickness depending on the type of coating used to.
Here at Carpet Market One, we offer vinyl floors that have a range of different styles. While we carry solid and luxury vinyl tiles, the most popular format for both residential and commercial use is sheet vinyl. These vinyl rolls can cover large surfaces and are perfect for populated areas due to their ability to decrease the number of cracks where bacteria or pathogens can hide. Regardless of which format you choose, vinyl is also highly resistant to mold, mildew, and moisture, making it one of the most popular flooring options for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and just about any room where occasional spills and moisture are a concern.
When choosing a vinyl flooring, it is also important to take the two different types into consideration. Printed vinyl uses patterns that are printed directly on the surface using a paper topcoat. This topcoat is then covered with extra layers of protective vinyl or urethane in order to maintain its appearance. Inlaid vinyl, although more expensive, is also much more durable. In this process, tiny vinyl granules are added throughout the entire material, making any eventual chips and scrapes much less noticeable. Regardless of which type of vinyl you choose, Carpet Market One will make sure to consider your unique needs when providing you with the very best installed vinyl flooring.
