While there are both natural fiber and synthetic outdoor carpets several kinds of plastic-based textiles are the most common materials. Synthetic outdoor carpets also tend to be cheaper than their natural counterparts although some people prefer using grass mat - based carpeting. The main purpose of outdoor carpets is to cover up concrete flooring which is both unsightly and uncomfortable to walk on. With an outdoor carpet you will both get the practical effect of a more comfortable and safer surface and the aesthetic pleasure of nicer surroundings. Outdoor carpeting are often the first step to personalizing the outside area of your house to your tastes.
There was a time when the choice and difference in outdoor carpeting was really limited and all that was available was synthetic grass style. But times change and nowadays the choice in quality color and style for outdoor carpets is truly staggering. You also need to consider where you are going to put the outdoor carpet. Whether its for your deck the patio or for around your pool there are different types of outdoor carpeting that are on the market. Still one of the most important and primary considerations is the amount of dampness that the carpet will be subject to. This will be a primary determinant of the underlying needed quality and therefore of cost.
Far from being limited to the unsightly green outdoor carpet that is found on boat decks docks and poolsides outdoor carpeting can be more stylish than one might think and useful in a number of settings. One of the most important things to consider in choosing outdoor carpeting is how much exposure to the elements might be involved. Although many brands may be advertised as being "outdoor" some of these may not actually be manufactured to withstand heavy exposure to rain snow or direct sunlight. Marine carpet is manufactured using a rubber backing and an olefin layer on top that makes it extremely resistant to both water and stains. Olefin also called polypropylene is a synthetic material that is known for its quick drying properties and its ability to resist dirt mold and fading.
Outdoor carpeting comes in either rolls or tile. Both work well in high traffic areas. You will need to use a thicker carpet in these areas. The thickness will also make it last longer. The good thing about tiles is you can replace just the damaged tiles instead of the entire carpet. Tiles can be installed on cement stone ceramic and wood floors. Interlocking kind is best on patios and decks because it allows for moisture to drain. Laying carpet is relatively easy cost effective way to improve your homes value. Before purchasing carpet figure out where you plan to use it and what treatment it will have to withstand.
