Enviornmentally friendly...Smart

Mohawk leads innovation in sustainable flooring with SmartStrand carpet made using DuPont Sorona renewably sourced polymer. DuPont exclusively provides Mohawk with fiber made from Bio-PDO, the key ingredient that makes Sorona. Because Sorona is made from corn sugar, 37 percent of the carpeting fiber is a renewable resource, replacing ingredients normally derived from petroleum.

Additionally, the production of the Sorona polymer requires 30 percent less energy and emits 63 percent less Greenhouse gas than creating an equal amount of nylon.

Plus, every seven yards of SmartStrand saves one gallon of gasoline.

Mohawk triexta carpet fibers are extremely durable and have a much higher stain resistance than many other types of carpet fibers.

Ceramic Tiles

No one can argue the long term durability of Ceramic tile. It is not for everybody, especially those that like to lounge around on the floor and watch television. But for those who are looking for a nearly final flooring solution, ceramic tile is the perfect choice. At Jamies Carpet Shop we carry the largest selection of imported and domestic tiles, and because of our volume buying power, our prices simply can’t be beat.

And if you want to step outside of the standard tiled floor, Jamies Carpet Shop tile installers are renowned for making a ceramic tile floor look more like a piece of artwork than something that’s meant to walk on. Whether you’re looking for a durable solution or a floor that makes a profound and beautiful statement, Jamies Carpet Shop has the right ceramic tile floor for you.


Why Ceramic?

  • Affordability: Thanks to the recent advancements in technology, ceramic tile is no longer affordable to just the “Rich and Famous”. Today, ceramics are in the same price range as other better quality floor coverings.

  • Affordability: Because ceramic tile is considered a permanent product, the Real Estate Appraisal Guide lists it as a product that increases the resale value of your home; therefore, it is an investment, rather than a cost.

  • Cost: Ceramic tile is less expensive than most alternative products. While the initial cost may be higher than some, in the long run it is less expensive because it does not have to be replaced every few years.

Ceramic Tile’s Outstanding Characteristics:

  • Durability: Some building products are beautiful but not durable. Others are durable, but they lack beauty. Ceramic Tile is the ultimate product, combining both beauty and durability.

  • Stain Resistance: Ceramic Tile is the most stain resistant building product there is. In fact, most glazed tiles are stain proof.

  • Color Permanence: Ceramic tile is one of the only decorative building products that will not fade or discolor with sunlight.

  • Dirt Resistance: Ceramic tile is the easiest of all decorative building products to maintain. Soil remains on the surface for easy cleaning.

  • Hygiene: Ceramic Tile is the cleanest of all building products. Its surface will not retain liquids or absorb odors.

- Laminate Flooring -

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring was developed to give the look and feel of wood without too much concern for moisture, indentations, and the general shortcomings of natural wood. It’s absolutely perfect for almost any space and comes in a virtual plethora of designs and styles.

Laminate flooring is what is referred to as a “floating floor”, meaning it is not directly attached to the floor. First, much like carpet a cushion is laid down and the individual laminate planks are locked together over the top of the cushion. The cushion not only helps ease impact but also acts as an acoustical dampener.

At Jamies Carpet Shop, we have a tremendous selection of Laminate flooring from the world’s leading manufacturers, and like all other types of flooring, Laminate flooring has come a very long way in the areas of moisture, stain, and traffic resistance. If you believe that laminate flooring might be the right choice for you, then only at Jamies Carpet Shop will you see the full spectrum of your options. Come in today and experience the Jamies Carpet Shop difference for yourself.


The Look

It’s a natural look for your home and for the way you want to live. More pleasures and fewer chores. Laminate is available in all the natural looks you love, each one as beautiful as the real thing.

The Stength

Laminate floors are extremely durable and wear resistant. Easy installation,quick and simple cleaning. Laminate is sold in planks that are glued or snapped together and can be laid over most other existing floors (excluding carpet). Each board is constructed with a core of high density moisture resistant fiber board. Laminate Floors absorb impact & resist scratches better than most real wood floors.

The Feel

A hard surface.

The Clean Up

Laminate flooring is very easy to clean and maintain. Simply wipe away dirt with a moist cloth. No wax is needed. Just sweep, dust or swift for general cleaning. Do not use the swifters that leave a waxy film, use the swifters that clean with static electricity. You may damp mop a laminate floor just don’t put a lot of water on the floor. You must squeeze out as much water as possible before you apply the mop to the floor. Too much water can cause buckling along the seams. Every floor is non-allergenic and does not absorb odors. Laminate cleaning products are easily available.
