The right flooring is a crucial design element for every room in your home. At Abbey Carpet & Floor®, we carry several of the best carpet choices, hardwood flooring brands, and luxury vinyl flooring. Our flooring specialists are ready to help you choose the flooring to meet your taste and needs throughout your home.
You may think that a floor is a floor, but that’s not the case. Each type of flooring has its benefits and drawbacks and should be given proper consideration before committing. We will take you through the details of hardwood, luxury vinyl, and carpet to help you make an informed choice when it’s time to shop.
While carpet can be constructed using many materials, nylon, polyester, and wool are the most basic types used. Every type of carpet can have a place in your home, depending on what the space is typically used for.
The most durable synthetic option available, nylon is also stain-resistant. It’s the ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as hallways. Shaw Floors® offers ANSO® High-Performance Nylon that features SoftBac® Carpet Backing and R2X® Stain Treatment and comes complete with a 20-year warranty.
Carpets made using polyester are known for having a luxurious look and feel. Polyester doesn’t have the same crush resistance as nylon or wool, so it’s best suited for low-traffic rooms, like bedrooms. Add SmartCushion backing from Mohawk® Flooring and enjoy an additional ten years on your carpet’s warranty.
For customers seeking the ultimate carpeting experience, we suggest wool. Wool is an all-natural, biodegradable fiber that is both soil and flame-resistant. It naturally resists crushing to maintain a pristine appearance over time. You can count on wool to purify the air inside your home and control humidity.
You have likely heard of engineered hardwood and may be wondering what that is. Solid hardwood is made using a single wood species and comes in single-layer planks. Engineered hardwood is crafted using a layer of hardwood and multiple layers of cross-grain plywood. The plywood layers add stability to engineered wood and allow it to be installed at many grades in your home. Solid hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished up to three times throughout its lifespan. In contrast, the engineered variety can be refinished usually once or twice before the hardwood layer is exhausted.
Vinyl flooring has made incredible gains in the recent past. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles create wood, stone, and tile that looks nearly indistinguishable from the genuine article. Luxury vinyl flooring uses multiple layers of pressed vinyl sealed into a hardboard core with an underlayment backing. A protective top coating provides resistance to moisture and scratches. It doesn't get much easier than vinyl flooring when it comes to maintenance. Your luxury vinyl planks will never need to be sealed or polished, and if damage occurs, you simply pop out that particular piece and replace it. We carry vinyl flooring from fine brands such as:
Adura® vinyl planks from Mannington® are not only waterproof, but they are also FloorScore® certified to meet stringent indoor air quality standards and have low VOCs. COREtec® is one of the premier names of luxury vinyl flooring and offers a vast selection, including the ADVANCED+ Collection that comes with an industry-exclusive 15-year warranty against scratches and other surface damage.
