Carpet Tile Ideal For Rental Properties

Carpet Tile Perfect for Rental Property

More and more I receive calls from customers that own rental property that are looking for away to lower cost to fix up units to rent for the first time or in between tenants. Here is the question I get a lot. Do you think carpet tiles would be a good solution for me? It is not just a good solution, but it is a wonderful no-nonsense solution. The best part about carpet tile is it can be a cheaper cost than Broadloom (wall to wall carpet). It is a DIY job so you do not have to hire an installer and pay out a lot of cash for labor and materials. We know that contractors and installers most of the time mark up the material they use. With carpet tiles that money can stay in your pocket and that is a good feeling.

How easy are carpet tiles to replace? Well, say your tenants move out and as you inspect the place you notice that in the living area that there is a big grape juice stain on the floor (everyone’s worst nightmare). All you have to do is pull it up and put another one down in its place. That simple, thanks to the releasable adhesive. No need to replace the whole thing or stretch it again like with wall to wall carpet. That keeps money in your wallet for a longer period of time and that is what we all need. Carpet tiles are very durable and long lasting and have moisture and vapor barrier as well. This keeps your rental property safer from damage to the subfloor due to spilled liquids penetrating down to it. Less money you have to spend on floor repairs.

Over all carpet tile is perfect in most situations, like in the rental property business. They are cheap in price, easy to install, durable, long lasting, and a great DIY money saving project for most everybody including home owners, and small business owners. So if you are one of those people who like to save money and do it yourself then carpet tile is for you. Good luck and we will see you on the job.

Home Theater Carpet Solutions

Home Theater CarpetA home theater system is an investment in entertainment, and to some it is an obsession. We spend billions on electronics each year in this country. Our big screen television sets, amplifiers, speakers, Blu-Ray players, subwoofers, and every other component of our theater system are chosen with the utmost thought and care. Some of us go as far as to tune our systems and measure our speaker placement. But even if you are an aficionado and have done everything imaginable you may be missing out on perfection.  “What’s left?” you may ask. What is missing is the perfect sound absorbing floor covering – home theater carpet. The best carpet for the home theater is carpet tile.

I know you’re thinking what carpet tile could have to do with your home theater system. Just imagine having your system set up inside a cathedral: a large open room with surfaces that don’t absorb a single sound wave. Can you imagine what the quality of the sound might be? Think of the amount of reverb that would be coming back at you. You wouldn’t even be able to understand the dialogue in a movie. Now think about what materials are in a cathedral: stone, wood, glass, brick, etc. Look around your living room and what do you see? More than likely you are seeing the same types of building materials. Unfortunately, most homes aren’t constructed with the home theater system in mind.

How to Install Carpet Tiles

How to Install Carpet TilesCarpet tiles became a favorite of do-it-yourselfers once it became common knowledge that not only was carpet tile easy to install, but often times much more budget friendly than their traditional carpet counterpart. This article will attempt to break down the installation process in a few steps. Don’t worry, carpet tile is very forgiving. If you mess up, start over.  The installation is very simple. Not only is it easy, it also takes less time than other flooring systems.

  • The first thing you need to do is determine your pattern. You need to first decide what tile will be in the middle of the room. Once you have determined which tile will be the focal point the real work begins.
  • Measure the length of each wall and take half of this number to determine the middle of wall. Pencil in a mark in the center of each wall.
  • Next, measure one side of the tile and divide that in half to find the center of the tile. Line the center of the tile up with the center of the wall, and mark the wall on each end of the tile. Repeat this process on all of the walls. Continue reading

Why Buy Carpet Tiles?

Why Buy Carpet Tile

Buying flooring for a room can be a costly endeavor no matter what the material. Not only do you have to buy the floor covering, but then comes the cost of labor, installation materials, and the more difficult the installation, the more you may end up paying. There are many surfaces to choose from for your specific room or project: wall to wall carpet, carpet tile, tile (hard surface), linoleum, the list goes on. But if you want to get the most bang for your buck, carpet tiles are probably the way to go. Carpet tiles are available, but not only will you pay less for the material, but the ease of installation and transportation will be helpful to your budget.

Whether you are someone who needs to floor a large facility or a single room, carpet tiles will be your most cost efficient solution. Carpet tiles can be purchased at deep discounts or even at wholesale, which can be beneficial for someone needing to floor a gym facility, an office, or a lobby. If you are looking for flooring for residential use don’t think you have to be confined to paying full price for the floor you want. Short lots are available at deep discounts and can be the best option for someone looking to carpet a living room, den, a bedroom, etc.

Large quantities of carpet tile can be very easily transported as opposed to large rolls of carpet. This lowers the cost of your floor even more. Enough carpet tiles could be transported in a single truck load to floor an entire house. The same cannot be said for full length rolls. Combine the ease of transportation with a set of cheap carpet tiles, your costs will fit within any budget, and that’s with the cost of installation.

What is the cost of carpet tiles? It is not uncommon to find carpet tiles for as little as sixty, fifty, even thirty cents a square foot. Compared with the average cost of standard carpeting you are saving twenty to fifty cents per square foot, plus your installation costs will be less. Just imagine the already low cost of carpet tile, and then what you could save on a liquidated lot. You could end up with the floor of your dreams at a fraction of the cost you would pay for standard carpet or other flooring products.

If you are looking for an affordable floor system, Focus Floor’s lines of discount carpet tiles are a great place to start. They are easy to transport and easy to install. Don’t think because you have a small budget you can’t buy a beautiful and practical floor. Take a look and see what carpet tiles offer for your flooring needs.
