When choosing carpet for your home it is as important to consider the quality as it is the style and color. To judge the construction and durability of carpet it is important to consider the type of fiber, twist, pile density and backing.
Carpet cushion isalso very important. Cushion is there to absorb foot traffic pressure which creates a softer walk as well as maximizing the durability, comfort and beauty retention of your carpet. We believe you should choose a cushion that is firm, dense and resilient. At PCI we offer a variety of cushions to fit your needs. Our sales assistants can help educate you on which cushion would be best for your needs.

The width of the grout can vary per type of tile being used and should be sealed after curing to provide for long-term stain resistance and easy maintenance.
