Ideas & Inspiration from Austin Flooring & Carpet Contractors
Austin Carpet Installation
As beautiful as a hardwood or laminate floor might be for your kitchen or dining room, such hard-surface flooring throughout your whole home makes it more difficult to kick off your shoes and find a relaxing floor. After all, while you might want to play up the visual appeal of hard-surface flooring in the more visible, public areas of your home, places like living rooms, family rooms, bedrooms, should first and foremost help you feel at home.
Choosing a Carpet Fiber
There's a lot of information about different carpet fibers and their virtues. No one fiber is the Vince Young of Austin carpet installation, but natural fibers, especially wool, are often preferred, though more expensive. This is probably because wool ages better than synthetic alternatives.
In some ways, these synthetic fibers are actually more durable than natural fibers. They won't shed like wool, but they do tend to fade in color and collect grime much faster. Nylon and acrylics are among the highest-performing synthetics; acrylic, specifically, does a good job at imitating wool. Olefin, a contemporary and popular carpet fiber, is less expensive and still delivers decent carpet performance.
Once you've got a handle on the material, your carpet fiber can also take on any number of styles. Plush, Berber, multi-loop, or cut-and-loop pile are all popular ways of fashioning carpet fibers. Each has a slightly different feel, and they all have their own cleaning and maintenance demands.
Choosing a Carpet Padding
You don't absolutely need a carpet pad, but without one you might as well plan on replacing your carpet in a year or two. Carpet padding will not only dramatically extend the life of your carpet, it will also help it feel softer and more forgiving, too. The thicker the pad the softer your carpet will feel, but the density of the padding is the critical factor in creating a long-lasting carpet installation.
Cost of Installation
HomeAdvisor collects data on carpet installations in Austin and around the country. Our information tells us that the average total cost of a carpet project is about $1,600. This average, though, includes jobs involving several rooms and it's not uncommon to see projects as low as a few hundred dollars. By comparison, the average laminate floor costs $4,000, and hardwood flooring goes over the $5,000 mark. Even high end carpet is still one of the least expensive floors you can choose. Unless you absolutely must have a hard-surface flooring, this is the way to go for at least a few areas in your Austin home.
It doesn't take long to install carpet, although it may take more than a day if you have old flooring that needs to be ripped up or multiple pieces of heavy furniture that need to be moved. Total project times can also run up to a week or so by the time you've decided on a style of carpet, have it delivered, and then installed.
Needless to say, we can't tell you everything you need to know about your Austin carpet installation. Because the differences in carpet fibers are subtle, even a comprehensive description of their appearance, feel, and durability isn't worth much without knowing your day-to-day activities, the presence of pets, small children, etc. By talking to an Austin carpet installer first, you can get the opinion of someone who can give you unbiased advice about what carpeting is best for your home.
