I was thinking back on our cabin we used to own on the North Shore in Belfair, WA. We had two dogs who loved their Milk Bones. When I would vacuum there would be a loud clatter of the machine picking up all the little dog bone pieces I could not see.
And that is the story of the Olefin berbers that was sold for so many years. Long-lasting, tough and hard to stain, hiding nerdlies in the carpet.
Finding Olefin berber today is impossible. Wondering why, I called the largest distributor on the East Coast. I found out that with all the other carpet options out there today that they have decided not to manufacture the dyes necessary to dye the fibers. So there you have it.
Still looking for an alternative, I did find a small company in Dalton GA, family owned, that makes their own carpeting. They have three nice PET or Polyester looped carpets.
The samples came in today. So if you are still looking for a Berber style looped carpet then one of these three should fit the bill. This fiber is much softer than the Olefin.
Yes, this time comes every year. The countdown to Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Year’s Eve.
This is a busy time for companies like ours. We are already booked up for hard-flooring jobs through November. We usually always have time to slip in a carpet job but it usually is pretty disruptive at this time of year. Especially if there is a Christmas tree. (That is why we are so busy in January. Many say, ” We will do it after the holidays.”
There is still plenty of time for new window coverings. Hunter Douglas is having a rebate sale on Duette Honeycomb shades, Skyline Gliding Panels, Pirouette, Silhouette and Vignette. Minimums do apply.
If you need blinds that insulate from the cold, consider honeycomb. If you have a view Silhouette gently shades your window while allowing you to see through the fabric. Vignette offers a Roman Shade look with warm and stylish fabrics. How does one describe a Pirouette? A most unusual shade that squeezes open and closed.
There is something for every room in all price ranges. If the product you want is not on sale then we offer free install on that blind.
Here are some pictures of what is on sale, or go to our website.
We have three new carpets on sale…..Two are dual tone nylon plushes and have the PetProtect StainMaster features. 2.19 sf/2.97 ft. The other is a two-tone low cut pile that has a loop look.An exceptional look at 3.10
This is a great time of year to start thinking about new carpet. You take a fresh look at your home when the sunlight start streaming in and all those spots and worn areas begin to show.
We have a great selection and a large range of pricing. It has been the trend of consumers for the last five years to select the least expensive product to save money. The best value though is to select the best carpet your budget will allow. There are many sellers out there trying to sell you free rooms of carpet but this just does not happen. The cost is just worked in somewhere else. It added to the pad or install or inflated fees. Get bids.
This month we are featuring this wonderful carpet in two weights. There are solids and two-color cable twists…Tuscany and New Cane are simply gorgeous. This is a PET Polyester continuous filament fiber.
The lighter weight carpet is $3.21 sf installed and the luxury weight is $4.19 sf. Remember that carpet is 12′ wide and there is always some waste. If you merely add up your square feet of coverage you will be short.
Other costs involved are carpet removal/disposal, removal and reinstall of wall base, and the moving of furniture.
If you have a nice piece of carpet left over we can bind it to make an area rug.
We would like to present a value collection of berbers and a pin-dot carpet.
Each one is family friendly and stain proof. The samples are close in color but you need to see the sample in person for a closer look. All carpet is 12′ wide.
First we have Color PZL which is a zipperlock construction.
Price per sq.ft. 1.86. This is carpet only. Pad and Install extra.*
If you needed a piece 12 x 14 then that would be
12 x 14 = 168 sq ft X $1.86 = 312.48
Next we have TP III which is stain proof but not a zipper-lock, pictured below. Price $1.28 sq ft.
Our third choice is very nice multi-colored low pile berber WB @$2.11 sq ft. This is a zipperlock carpet. Will not run.
Our last carpet is a pin-dot and it has a loop and cut pile. It is stain-proof and is the softest of the samples we have featured at this time.
NF is $1.81 sq ft.
*Labor and Pad average
10.00 sq yd. or 1.11 sq. ft.
Other charges may apply
Tear out – baseboard removal and reinstall – stairs- dump fees
