Carpet Runners

0 Comments

Let’s talk carpet runners! Whether you are looking to add durability, safety, or style to your steps, adding a carpet runner should be on the radar.

Durability: Adding a carpet runner made of a durable carpet yarn like nylon or SmartStrand is a great way to get more from your steps. Save the wood and paint from the constant beating that your steps take from the everyday wear and tear with a nylon carpet runner. Runners protect the stairnosings from being worn down and the finishes from being worn off.

Safety: The right carpet runner can make your steps safer for pets, kids, elderly occupants, or anyone else that may have issues with falling. Be sure to talk to your flooring specialist about your needs, but a fall down the carpeted steps can be less harmful than the bare wood. Also, it is easier on pet paws that tend to slip. When safety is the reason for carpeting the steps, make sure you pick a low profile cut.

Style: Probably the biggest reason we see our customers adding a runner to the steps, is décor. A new runner is a relatively cheap way to bring carpet patterns and color to a project. Much like area rungs, there is less permanency to the choice. And the small amount of carpet required for these types of projects make it a great place to splurge on what you really want.

Champion floor company did an amazing job with the floors in my 120 year old home. The floors did have some damage and they managed to make them look beautiful. They were so easy to work with, they answered all my questions, were professional and treated both myself and my home with respect. I would highly recommend this company .

Recently had carpet replaced in my family room. Champion was the only company willing to work within my time frame. I am a bit of a tough customer and expect a square job for my dollar and Champion exceeded those expectations. The installer was incredible and really put in the effort with the details to complete a perfect job. I could not be more impressed with this new carpet. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The best people to work with. They help from the beginning to end and then make sure you're happy. Kim is so helpful and her installation staff is great to work with. I will only shop here for flooring.

The floor project on our new home turned out GREAT! … but, not a surprise. Champion Floor Company did two other great jobs on our current home over the last few years, so we knew we had chosen wisely. A few things we really appreciate: 1. Ralph assessed the job and a fair bid was created — all in a timely manner. 2. Mike called to schedule; sent an email and stuck to it. 3. Saib led the work at the house, arriving on time each day, completing the estimated work, and communicating with us throughout the process. Champion Floor Company is fair, planful, reliable, and the resulting work is spectacular.

Dennis and the team did an awesome job. They were prompt, and they repaired and refinished the floors beautifully. I would definitely use them again. I love the color!!
