Carpet in Glen Ellyn, IL from Desitter Flooring

A Comprehensive Guide to Carpet Installation

Before we explore the compatibility of carpet with various flooring types, it's essential to understand the role of sub-flooring. Sub-flooring serves as the foundational layer of your floor, providing support, stability, and a smooth surface for your chosen flooring material. In most cases, carpet installation requires a sub-flooring base to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Types of Flooring Suitable for Carpet Installation

At Desitter Flooring, we understand that every home is unique, and each homeowner has distinct preferences and needs. Fortunately, carpet can be installed over a wide range of flooring types, including:

  • Wood Flooring: Whether you have hardwood, engineered wood, or laminate flooring, carpet can be installed over these surfaces with proper preparation. Our expert installers will assess the condition of your wood flooring and address any imperfections before laying down the carpet padding and carpet.
  • Tile Flooring: Tile flooring, such as ceramic, porcelain, or natural stone, provides a durable and waterproof surface ideal for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. If you're seeking added warmth and comfort, carpet can be installed over tile flooring to create a cozy atmosphere without compromising on style or functionality.
  • Vinyl Flooring: Vinyl flooring offers versatility, affordability, and low maintenance, making it a popular choice for modern homeowners. Carpet installation over vinyl flooring is entirely feasible, providing insulation and sound absorption benefits while complementing your interior design aesthetic.
  • Concrete Flooring: In basements or utility areas with concrete flooring, carpet installation can significantly enhance comfort and insulation. Our professional installers will utilize moisture barriers and appropriate adhesives to ensure a seamless and long-lasting carpet installation over concrete surfaces.
  • LVT/LVP Flooring: Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) flooring have gained popularity for their durability, water resistance, and realistic appearance. While these flooring options can stand alone beautifully, carpet installation over LVT/LVP can introduce softness and warmth to living spaces, creating a welcoming environment for your family and guests.
