Carpet in Santa Ana, CA from Sharon and Son's Flooring & Cabinets

The Versatility of Carpet Flooring

From luxurious plush textures to durable berbers, carpets offer an array of styles and designs to suit every aesthetic preference. Beyond their visual appeal, carpets provide warmth, sound insulation, and a soft underfoot feel that's unmatched by other flooring options.

The Question of Subflooring

One common inquiry we receive at Sharon and Son's Flooring & Cabinets is whether carpet flooring necessitates subflooring for installation. The answer? It depends.

Concrete Surfaces: For concrete floors, a subfloor is typically not required. However, it's essential to ensure that the concrete surface is clean, dry, and level before installing carpet to prevent any moisture-related issues or unevenness.

Wood Subfloors: When it comes to wood subfloors, particularly plywood or oriented strand board (OSB), installing carpet directly over them is possible. However, it's crucial to inspect the subfloor for any signs of damage, such as rot or unevenness, and address them before proceeding with carpet installation.

Existing Flooring: In some cases, homeowners may wish to install carpet over existing flooring, such as hardwood or laminate. While this is feasible, it's essential to ensure that the existing surface is smooth and level to prevent any bumps or imperfections from telegraphing through the carpet.
