About Carpet

Carpet - Textured Bay View Carpeting

Carpet is the number one choice of floor covering in the United States. Why? There are a lot of reasons. It’s one of the most affordable options on the market and is also the easiest to install and remove. Flooring is an important decorating decision and with and endless array of colors, styles and textures, carpet is a great choice to compliment any home or office décor. Carpeting offers a warmth and comfort that no hard flooring can match, and today’s durable materials retain their beauty for many years.

Here are some things to consider when deciding whether to install carpeting:

Noise Reduction

Let’s face it, most of us are crowded. The world has become a busy place full of noise and motion. In many areas, neighbors are mere feet away. Carpet deadens footfalls and absorbs sound, creating more peaceful environment conducive to productivity, focus, and sheer, blissful relaxation.


Dropping a glass on wood or tile can be an explosive disaster that scratches the floor and flings glass shards to the far reaches of the room. Carpet cushions the impact, making the glass less likely to shatter. It’s a soft landing place for little bottoms, too.


Carpet is one of the most versatile decorating materials on the market. The range of colors and styles allow you to express your style from contemporary to kitsch. Whether you’re looking for an elegant neutral, today’s trendy color or a funky print, Build Direct has carpeting to meet your needs.


Carpet is much softer and more indulgent than other types of flooring. Carpet feels good against your skin and is more comfortable to walk and stand on. A softer surface underfoot reduces fatigue and is less likely to result in foot, ankle or other injuries from slips and falls.

  1. When buying a carpet, it is important to find the ones that can meet your goals, budget and needs. If you think it’s as easy as breezing through a store full of sales reps, you’re mistaken. Most sales people will fill you in on the best carpet varieties but will just base them on the feel, look and even the price. The most important factor is missed out – the carpet specifications.
