Contempo offers a wide selection of Carpet Flooring that fits virtually any residential or commercial setting. As one of the softest flooring materials available, carpeting is the ideal choice for those who seek a cushioned and comfortable surface. Contempo installs the following carpet fibers:
Nylon carpets are known for being very soft, durable, and stain resistant. As a result, nylon is known as the most popular carpet material and accounts for nearly three quarters of all manufactured pieces.
The main appeal of this type of carpet fiber is its ability to retain the vibrant colors they usually feature without very minimal fading over time. They also offer the added benefits of being non-allergenic and are also often manufactured in an eco-friendly manner.
Polypropylene carpets hold the distinction of having a surface almost as soft as nylon, while also providing the added benefits of being extremely resilient and resistant to stains, mildew, and shedding. These traits make them ideal for high traffic areas in a home or business.
Wool is a natural, luxurious, long lasting material that is the softest carpet fiber available. Due to the fact that low grade wool tends to be more susceptible to staining while high grade wool can be considerably expensive, the ideal way to obtain the benefits of both at a cost-effective price is to utilize a carpet that combines wool with synthetic fibers.
Carpet is made by looping yarn through a piece of backing material in a movement that is similar to sewing a button on a shirt. These loops can then either be left intact or cut at various angles. The way the loop is treated is known as the carpet pile. Below you will find the most common carpet pile types available for your flooring.
Uncut Carpet Pile
Also known as “loop pile” or “berber pile.” This method leaves the entire loop intact on the surface of the piece. These carpets tend to be highly durable, easy to clean, and resistant to stains, making them perfect for high traffic commercial applications. Uncut pile carpets also don’t show indentations caused by footprints and vacuum marks.
The drawback is these carpets tend to be less soft and padded than their cut counterparts. Also the loops can be a snagging hazard if you have pets or small children.
