Frequently Asked Questions
There is never a charge for our measures. At Fairchild Floors, we pride ourselves on providing free estimates. We will measure for carpet, tile, wood, vinyl,laminate or window shades. We are happy to provide an estimate for any of your flooring needs. We always spell everything out on our estimates so you understand every detail of your bid.
To determine the approximate quantity of carpeting you will need, multiply the length (feet) of the room by its width (feet), and divide that figure by 9 to obtain the square yardage. Add 10 percent to account for room irregularities and pattern match. It is best to have your retailer or installer make final measurements to ensure that you purchase the correct amount. As professionals, they know how to include hallways and closets, match patterns, plan seam placement, work with room irregularities, and account for rooms with widths greater than 12 feet. (Most carpet is produced in 12 foot widths.) Some dealers may sell by the square foot.
Your budget and your needs are two key elements in selecting carpet and rugs. There is a wide range of choices and costs from which to make your selection. As yourself how long you expect to keep your carpet before replacing it. A better grade of carpet will give you a greater length of service than one of lesser quality. Buy the best carpet you can afford for the heavy traffic areas of your home - halls, stairs, family rooms. A medium grade will provide good services in rooms with less traffic - bedrooms and guest rooms.
Ask your retailer to give you a complete cost estimate - one that includes cushion, installation, moving furniture, and any special needs that you may have. Keep in mind that a high-quality, professional installation can extend the life of your purchase.
Textures: Carpet construction - how the yarn is "tufted" or locked into a backing - affects its texture and ultimately, the long-term durability and appearance of the carpet.
Level loop pile: Loops of equal height. Generally offers long-lasting wear for high-traffic areas. Many of today's popular Berbers are level loop.
Multi-level loop: Usually has two or three different loop heights to create pattern effects. Provides good durability.
Cut pile: Loops are cut, leaving individual yarn tufts. Still one of today's most popular constructions, its durability is achieved with factors including the type of fober, density of tufts, and the amount of twist in the yarn.
Cut and loop pile: Combination of cut and looped yarns. Provides variety of surface textures, including sculptured effects.
|How can I tell the quality of the carpet?|
The type of fiber used and the way the carpet is constructed (loop, cut, etc.) determines the basic performance of teh carpet. Quality can be enhanced by the way the fibers, or yarns, are twisted and heat set, and by the density of the tufts.
At Fairchild Floors we believe that it should be all about you. Our main goal is to do everything possible to make you satisfied.

Experience You Can Trust
Fairchild Floors has experienced, quality minded professionals in both residential and commercial markets.
Just had the tile flooring installed. I'm amazed at the attention to detail that Tyler exhibited. What was especially nice is Linda's assistance in choosing the pattern. The Bleached Sand is amazing. I was concerned about height as I wanted to purchase a specific refrigerator. I have 1/4" clearance. The cleaning up of the baseboards is such a nice service. They look 1,000% better than before the treatment. Tyler's knowledge about other services that I'm having done what a great help as I added some buildup to my counters. We also discussed the delivery of my appliance and how to manuever them over the newly installed tile. I am so please with EVERYONE. They keep you informed so there is no guess work on when things are being done. Give them a call. You won't be sorry. I like their work.
