NEED CARPET? -  Carpet Tiles Might Be Your Perfect Choice!


CARPET TILES have revolutionized the modern carpet world and are extremely popular in both homes and businesses. Modular tiles are super-durable, long lasting, easy-to-clean, attractive, affordable and simple to install yourself as a DIY project. They are the perfect carpet choice for heavy traffic areas, homes with kids, pets, wheelchairs or walkers. Demanding conditions demand carpet tile. These modular tiles are typically 2 ft x 2 ft (though actual size may vary). Carpet tiles are heavy duty, rubber-backed carpet squares; extremely easy to clean, easy to maintain and easy to replace. They are also the ideal carpet solution for apartment or dorm living (when you don’t own the space), for offices with cubicles, and for commercial areas with lots of foot traffic.




Extremely Affordable - Will save you $$$!!!  Because you "Do-It-Yourself" there's

NO LABOR COST! (And no pad or tack sticks needed, so that's another savings.)

Surprising Beauty & Premium Quality - Tiles easily improve the look of any space,

            commercial or residential. Tiles are soft, warm, sound absorbent and come in many

colors, patterns, styles & textures for an attractive, versatile, custom-designed floor covering.

So Easy to Install - A simple & fun Do-It-Yourself project.  Anyone can install them in

just a few hours with no nails or tack strips needed, and no damage to the floor underneath.

Carpet tiles have a special textured, pressure-sensitive, non-skid surface that naturally adheres

to your floor and keeps the tiles firmly in place - making it impossible for them to wrinkle, fold, slip or shift.  Usually, in smaller projects, tiles can be installed as is, with no glue or adhesive – just lay them down in the pattern that pleases you most. Larger, commercial projects may require

a pressure sensitive releasable adhesive that allows you to pull them up and reposition them,

(or sometimes a double-sided carpet tape).

Install Doesn’t Disrupt Whole Household or Workplace - Tiles can be installed in

            Small sections at a time, without having to remove ALL the furniture in a room.

            This is especially ideal for office cubicles!  (You know, the ones loaded with

            computers, wires and technological equipment that rolled carpet installation would

require unplugging, removing, and then untangling and sorting out before replacing.)

Can Install Almost AnywhereLay tiles down over any clean, level floor:

concrete, hardwood, plywood sub floors, laminate, vinyl, ceramic tile, etc... 

ConvenientTiles are packaged in easy to transport boxes. No need to lift & maneuver

enormous & bulky, back-breaking carpet rolls. This is a huge advantage if you have to go up flights of stairs and around tight corners. Tiles typically come in portable cartons of  24 inch

or 18 inch squares. (Also it’s easy to store spare tiles if replacements are ever needed.)

Extremely Durable & Long LastingModular carpet tiles are sturdy and resilient,

            made of quality materials and engineered to be tough with a very long performance life.

The special backing seals & binds the yarns making it nearly impossible to unravel.

This backing system is created to take more abuse than normal, making tiles extremely durable,

far outwearing conventional carpet and ideal for high traffic and high soil areas and commercial

uses. They never seem to wear out. 

Stain-Resistant & Easy to CleanWith built-in stain resistance properties, tiles are easy to

keep clean. Vacuum & steam clean just like any other carpeting. Spot-clean spills with

water. A really tough stain or burn won’t ruin your entire carpet - just pop out the single

damaged tile and clean it in sink. (Tiles can even be washed in your dishwasher and hung

to dry!)  

Extremely Resistant to MoistureThis makes carpet tile ideal for basements & areas

with occasional water problems. Because of the special rubber or vinyl backing,

if a carpet  tile becomes wet, it can be taken up, rinsed off, dried, and then laid back down.

Easy MaintenanceYou can replace or swap out a damaged, worn or seriously stained

          tile to a less visible area (ie: under the couch.) This rotation lengthens wear while

          retaining the flooring’s fresh, like-new appearance much longer than rolled carpet.

Design Flexibility, Creative Freedom & Customization - Tiles provide endless &

innovative design  possibilities and combinations. Colors, patterns & textures can

be mixed & matched to create unique borders, designs, stripes, aisles, insets,

checkerboards, mosaics, etc. For a fresh look just rearrange the tiles or even replace

some tiles for a whole new appearance.

Different Installation Options - Can be installed wall-to-wall or tiles can work equally

well as a sophisticated modular area rug. Tiles have directional arrows on the bottom

and can be arranged in a variety of installation methods for different looks.

You Don’t Need Pad Underneath - Tiles are backed with a thick, skid-resistant

vinyl or rubber backing so no pad is required.

No Typical Carpet Problems -  No Wrinkling - No Bulges - No Pulls – No Unraveling

Portable & Perfect For Apartment or Dorm Living - Even if you don’t own your living

space you can still lay down these carpet tiles (with NO damage to the floor underneath)

and enjoy the look and feel of carpet. Then, when you move, you can simply take them

with you to your next home.
