Often used in commercial settings, carpet tiles or carpet squares, are a great alternative to roll carpeting. Carpet tiles are modular so you can use different color tiles to create a unique pattern or style to match your property's décor. Carpet tiles are known for being resilient, long-lasting, and stain-resistant. They are easy to install and maintain. In the case of damage or staining, you can simply replace one carpet square rather than the entire room.

Carpet tiles are easy to install, and can be nonadhesive, or free laid, or self-adhesive. The seams of carpet tiles are more visible than traditional roll carpeting so you need to work carefully to avoid crooked lines or an uneven look. We offer flooring installation services, in some areas, to help you install carpet tiles.
Carpet tiles can be installed over many smooth surfaces, including wood and tile.
Things to remember when installing carpet tiles:
Carpet tile is durable, and will look great for years with proper care and maintenance, but accidents do happen. Be sure you keep a stock of extra carpet tiles on hand; if you are faced with stains, burns, or other damage, it is easy to pull up the ruined tile and replace it.
Remember to use floor mats at all entryways. This will drastically reduce the amount of dirt and debris tracked onto your floors.
