Frequently Asked Questions about Carpets

What if I’ve had a cheaper quote from someone else?

We will price match any like for like quotation. Simply send us a copy of the quotation and providing the flooring is the same and the installation hasn’t changed we will match the price.

What are the different types of carpet fibres?

Wool: Fabulous resilience to soiling, stains and flammability. Long lasting, easy to maintain and also provides natural insulation for winter months. Many of our wool carpets are often a blend with manmade fibres adding both durability and strength.

Polypropylene: Ideal for busy households, polypropylene carpets boast fabulous stain resistant properties, cleanable with a diluted bleach solution. A hardwearing manmade carpet fibre that resists fading and above all is affordable.

Nylon/Polyamide: Hardest wearing synthetic fibre that has a longer lasting appearance, usually the fibre used for bold colours.

Can I measure the room myself?

You can measure the room yourself for a rough estimate, but we still need to undertake our own measurements. We will confirm the exact amount of flooring required and check for any subsurface preparation while there. We don’t want to give you any costly surprises on the day.
