Here at Floor Coverings International Waukesha, we offer a vast selection of carpeting for Waukesha homeowners. While carpet can come in a couple different forms, the most popular form is broadloom. If you’re looking to install new carpet flooring in your home, this is likely the style you’ll want to choose. Read on to learn more about broadloom carpeting!
What is Broadloom Carpet?
Broadloom carpet describes any kind of carpet that is machine-woven on a wide loom. This has become a term used to describe nearly all the carpet flooring manufactured today with the exception of carpet tiles. Most broadloom carpets in Waukesha are now created with high-tech equipment in high volume manufacturing facilities. These carpets are manufactured in widths of 6, 12, 13 and 15 feet. Many homeowners are now also taking sections of broadloom carpet and having the edges bound to create area rugs.
Types of Carpet Flooring
Broadloom carpet comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and pile heights (the length of the fibers that form the carpet’s surface). Materials range from natural fibers such as sisal and wool to manmade materials such as nylon and polyester. Floor Coverings International Waukesha offers free in-home design consultations, and our design associate can help you choose the right style and material of carpet for your home.
Benefits and Considerations of Broadloom
Broadloom carpet comes in large rolls and is installed in a way so as to make your carpeted floors appear seamless. This results in the neat, clean look that is expected of residential carpeting. Carpet tiles are the other popular form of carpet, and these are installed in smaller pieces that will inevitably show seams. This look is not as popular in homes, which is why many homeowners choose broadloom. Thanks to its popularity, broadloom carpet also comes in a greater selection of materials, textures, and styles, allowing homeowners more choices when it comes to picking the perfect carpet.
One downside to broadloom carpet is that if you need to replace a section of the carpet due to damage, you must replace the entire carpet. In contrast, a single carpet tile can be removed and replaced in the case of damage or staining, which is particularly handy for mess-prone areas like a child’s room.
