CARPET TYPES

When shopping for carpet, you’ll find a range of basic styles from which to choose. Get acquainted with a few of the most common types.

Berber
Also known as loop, Berber pile is constructed from thick, uncut yarn woven into closed loops. This type of carpet is exceptionally durable and well-suited for active family lifestyles and high-traffic areas of the home
 
Frieze
This carpet has a tousled, casual look and feel, a result of the tightly twisted strands of yarn that make up its construction. One benefit of this is that footprints and vacuum tracks hardly show up.
 
Cut & Loop
Also known as patterned carpet, cut and looped yarns combine to create patterned effects across the surface. This low-profile pile hides stains and holds up well against heavy foot traffic.
