Carpet flooring, above all else, should be comfortable. While over 90 percent of carpet sold today is made from synthetic materials, knowing more about the different categories of carpet flooring can help you conceptualize which would be best for your home. The team at FLOOR MAX follows a careful process when installing any floor, but certainly for carpet installation. We ask that you keep touch-up paint available for after the installation is complete, as certain wall spots near the floor might be scratched, though we strive to keep your home and belongings intact.

  • Loop carpet, also known as Berber carpet, is made by yarns that are threaded through the mat, creating loops that are uncut. The pile can vary from low, tight loops to plush, high loops. Its natural layering and shading is a great option for busy areas, as it conceals dirt and debris. Accidental spills sit on top of the carpet, rather than sinking down into the base
  • Similar to the level loop, the cut loop carpet involves threaded yarn that has later been cut. Cut loop carpet has a beautiful and visually interesting texture, which fits well in both classic and contemporary homes alike. Cut loop tends to look worn quicker than level loop, but a brief vacuum job can bring it right back to life.
  • Think of pattern carpets as a combination of level and cut loop. Pattern carpets provide a more durable flooring that handle foot-traffic well, while also giving its design a chance to shine in more subtle rooms. The combination of level and cut loops give a good balance of comfort and durability.
  • Plush, also considered “Velvet Carpet,” is a dense carpet that provides a formal and luxurious ambiance. Often highly-reflective, plush carpet is also offered delustered yarns to avoid lingering vacuum streaks.
  • Wool carpets, offered in an array of rich colors and patterns, is a natural carpet that is durable, flame-resistant and environmentally-friendly. Manufactured from short strands of sheep’s wool, it is a tough material that lasts for decades. While synthetic carpets often lose their vibrancy or thickness, wool is naturally coiled, meaning it springs back up even after heavy feet or furniture. Wool is easily dyeable and resists stains and dirt better than synthetic carpets can. This carpet insulates the floors and reduces heating costs, which should come as no surprise, as wool is known for its warming properties. Wool is also extremely helpful in the summer months, as it helps moderate humidity by absorbing lingering water vapor.

Tile offers more variety and creativity than nearly any other floor. While it requires a difficult and professionally demanding installation, tiles durability and lifelong low-maintenance makes it more than worth its while. For those used to the Texas heat, tile flooring stays cooler than other flooring options, making barefoot summer days a breeze. In the winter months, a standard heating system or addition of rugs can help keep your tile at a comfortable temperature.

  • Ceramic tiles, made from clay and minerals, offer a durable and low-maintenance flooring option. For homes with children or pets, a non-slip texture can be added to the ceramic to ensure safety and less mess.
  • Porcelain is simply a more dense ceramic tile that has been heated to a higher temperature. It’s density allows for moisture-resistance and is also tough against fallen objects or other weight.
  • Stone flooring is the most unique tile flooring option and sets a stunning tone in a variety of rooms. Whether you’re going for classic or contemporary, natural stone tile comes in a variety of colors and combinations to give your home a custom feel.



When picking out hardwood floors, the first question you’ll face in product purchasing is: Solid or Engineered wood? Solid, which is known for its longevity, can be sanded down a number of times and look like new. Engineered wood, however, is a more flexible flooring option that can resist moisture better than solid wood can, meaning it can go in practically any space. Either wood floor is a great option for first and second floors, though engineered wood is preferred in damp spaces like a downstairs basement. Aside from placement, another area to consider for your hardwood floor is its hardness, or resistance quality. Ask the team at FLOOR MAX to compare your wood flooring options, as harder floors are more durable and resilient against dents and other damage.

  • Solid wood flooring is offered in single plank format, which can easily be cut and inserted before being sanded down to perfection. Luster can be added to give a more dazzling finish to spaces that are made for entertaining.
  • Engineered hardwood flooring is made up of several layers of laminated wood, strategically created with various angles in its design to match up with the piece next to it. Visually identical to solid wood, engineered hardwood is an especially good choice for those hoping to protect their floors against moisture problems.


Practically indistinguishable from real wood, tile or stone, laminate flooring is a manmade, layered material that is built to last. Four layers (Backing, Substrate, Pattern, Wear) are fused together to create a synergetic material that resists moisture and damage, all while looking like your first-choice flooring. The backing layer is created from melamine, which is a material that is used from everything from countertops to utensils. This layer helps stabilize the floor by providing a solid base. The substrate layer, made from either medium or high-density fiberboard, protects against water and helps solidify the base further than the backing layer could provide on its own. The pattern layer allows for the creativity to shine through, whether natural looking wood or an intricate tile design. Photos, colors or ink are distributed across the base until the desired look is achieved. Once the pattern has been placed, the durable and glossy wear layer helps to prevent scratches and everyday wear-and-tear. This glossy compound is made from aluminum oxide, an odorless powder that is used in engineered ceramics.

  • Before the professionals come to install, you’ll need to move all furniture out of any rooms where the laminate floor will be added, as well as smaller items like books and knick-knacks. Additionally, any baseboards or molding that extends to the floor should be removed beforehand too. For a small fee, a FLOOR MAX expert can remove your baseboards or molding for you.
  • On installation day, we ask that you are present throughout the process to let the installers in and to answer any home-specific questions the installers may have. Because lamination installation is a difficult process, be sure to keep any children or pets out of the installation rooms to avoid any harm.
  • After the experts from FLOOR MAX have completed the installation, the next step is to reinstall the baseboards and molding. This might involve some slight touch-up painting in certain areas, but every touch-up will help make your new room come together.
