New carpeting can add a fresh look to a home and offer improved comfort. When doing carpeting installations, it is best to do your homework and make sure that your chosen installers are certified and experienced. Metro Atl. Floors has been providing the Atlanta area with professional high quality carpet installations since 2008.
When deciding on which carpet is best for you home there are a few variations to choose from. There are two groupings of carpeting, cut loop and looped carpet. Looped carpet is the standard form of carpeting and is the most widely used variation. Looped carpeting is characterized by a smooth and even surface. Cut looped carpeting looks exactly like it sounds. The carpeting has some of the loops cut creating unique patterns and added texture to the material.
Berber carpet is a derivative of looped carpet and is one of the most popular carpeting options. Berber has three subgroups: level loop, textured loop, and multilevel loops. Level loop carpeting has thread loops that are all of the same height and designs are printed on to the carpet. Textured loop carpeting includes thread loops that are of varying lengths. Textured loop carpeting will often have loops of different colors to create a more elaborate design. Multilevel loops are very similar to textured loop with a larger degree of variation between the length of the loops.
