Another carpet option is carpet tile.  A growing choice for contractors, architects and designers developing commercial spaces that can stand the test of time, from a style as well as wear and tear perspective. It’s a strong type of carpet flooring that’s back in style today due to its aesthetic flexibility and long-term cost of maintenance. Carpet tiles are specially designed squares of carpeting that are made to lock down in a similar way to standard carpet flooring.

The flexibility and ease of installation benefits that carpet tiles provide are considerable. You can mix and match different colors and patterns, choose tiles that adhere to the floors using glues, while others are nailed or stapled down and even more importantly–replace tiles, as needed, without a complete rip and replace.  A much more cost-efficient and practical approach to high traffic, high stain-prone areas like hallways, corridors, meeting rooms, cafeterias, etc.

Get Advice on Carpet Tiles From ACS

While you are deciding on your carpet tile options, we recommend a call to ACS. We can help guide you on any special considerations you need to keep in mind–from design, sourcing to installation.

When you have narrowed down your choices, we can come to your location to measure and make an accurate estimate of the materials you will need—helping you stay within budget and not order too much or too little carpeting or padding. This is especially important in situations when the flooring materials are being installed for the first time (i.e., a major addition or new construction.) In most cases, the amount of product needed will be greater than the actual square footage to take account of awkward angles or other situations that require specially cut pieces. We will also look for things like uneven sub-floors, odd-shaped rooms, awkward corners or seam placement considerations that may require special steps, like a customized cut, during installation.

A site visit will also give us the opportunity to identify any special issues involving heavy furniture, adapting to existing baseboards, etc.
