Broadloom Carpet

Carpet is the classic choice for a floor that’s soft to the touch, with many advantages that have kept it a popular flooring choice for decades. The first, of course, is the texture. While carpet is available in a huge array of textures, patterns, and styles, they all have the advantage of being soft to the touch. This ability of carpet to act as a shock absorber also means it is naturally a very quiet product. Carpet has also proven to be an excellent product for those with asthma or allergy concerns. When you include its lower cost, you have a very attractive package that could be perfect for your next flooring project.

This article will give you background on the wide variety of carpet flooring products available and which might be the right fit for your next project.

Let our almost two decades’ of experience work for you so that you can focus on the next step of your renovation with peace of mind. Talk with us and start the process today.


Broadloom Carpet

When you think of large, 12-15 ft. rolls of carpeting, you’re thinking of broadloom. Broadloom is laid out over carpet padding and must be cut to fit corners and tight areas. It is a cost-effective product, available in a wide range of materials and styles. However, the process of cutting to fit results in wasted product, and if a piece of carpet needs to be replaced later on, often the carpet from the entire room must be replaced as well.

However, broadloom is still a great choice for houses with large rooms or an even interior layout. Broadloom rolls are available in nylon, wool, mohawk, tarkett and many other patterns.

We pride ourselves on the smoothness of our installation process. From your first conversation to us to the final installation, we aim to delight you every step of the way.

Once you’ve selected your carpet material of choice with our team, we’ll visit you at your property to perform detailed measurements and provide you with a quotation.

When the day of installation arrives, our team will remove all of your furniture from the installation area. Then, we’ll remove your old carpeting if necessary for us to dispose of later.

Next, we’ll proceed toward placing the padding before cutting your broadloom carpet to fit and installing it on top.

Finally, we’ll return all of your furniture back to its original position and leave your home just like we found it (but with a new carpet!).

If you have any questions about the carpet installation process, or the right type of product for your home, don’t hesitate to contact us – as Vancouver’s experts in carpet flooring, we would love to give you the answers you need.

We required an emergency floor replacement due on very short notice. We called Alex at 4pm on Friday afternoon and he was there by 6. Within days our floor was replaced and we were able to move back in. Alex and his team did an outstanding job. Their customer service is excellent. Marjan and I highly recommend Floors Depot!

Alex was a clear communicator. The job was done quickly and he was accommodating to our tight schedule. When some unforeseen challenges came up with the renovation (out of his control) he solved it and kept the project on schedule. Our floors look great, and the whole experience was stress free. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone!

Joey Mitchell


Great price and excellent service from the Floors Depot store! They did a beautiful job installing our new laminate floors and paying special attention to finishings and trims. Thank you for a job well done. I will definitely refer you to my family and friends.

How long does carpet flooring last?

Depending on the style, material, level of traffic and the level of maintenance, carpet flooring can last anywhere between 5 to 15 years. The most common reasons carpet is replaced are either deep stains, or the wearing down of the carpet over time due to traffic.

Should I pick broadloom or carpet tiles?

The biggest advantage of carpet tiles is installation, which can be done without the cutting and fitting that comes with broadloom. The individual tiles can also be easily swapped out and replaced in case of soiling or other damage, without having to replace a whole room or floor’s worth of carpet. They also tend to be cheaper.

Broadloom offers you more choices, as you can customize your choice of padding and carpet separately, and pick any style and pattern you desire without selecting from pre-made tile choices. However, this product is more expensive and installation is more complicated.

How should I select my carpet material?

The most important factors when making a decision on carpeting material are level of traffic, level of moisture, risk of staining, and price. 

For example, a wool carpet would have medium durability, a vulnerability to moisture and staining, and a high price, whereas a nylon carpet would have high durability, a strong resistance to moisture and staining, and a medium price. A buyer with chemical sensitivities, however, may still opt for the wool carpet if the areas of installation are appropriate.
