It's that time of year when people start preparing their outdoor living areas for the warmer months. In late spring and early summer, outdoor carpets become one of our most popular products. Here's why:
If you have a patio or deck that you would like to make more comfortable (whether it's concrete or poolside tiles), installing outdoor carpeting over many surfaces is a viable option. While there are indoor/outdoor area rugs that you can lay down, there is also more traditional carpeting that you can glue down or install for year-round use.
Outdoor carpeting is manufactured out of durable, synthetic materials that hold up well under direct sunlight, which means the colour of the carpet will not fade quickly. This surface covering is often made from weather resistant materials that hold up well in rain, sun, and snow, so it's perfect for year-round use and doesn't have to be brought inside during the winter months. Although End Of The Roll's products have excellent warranties, you can choose between a one year warranty or even a three year warranty on installed outdoor carpet for your complete satisfaction.
Carpet of this type is intended to provide both function and style to outdoor areas such as decks, patios, poolsides, and walkways. Outdoor spaces are often constructed from concrete, which is functional but hard on the feet and usually not very alluring. Adding carpet helps brighten and add interest to the area. In addition to infusing the space with colour, the carpet is also practical in two ways. It provides traction when the patio floor is wet, which means fewer chances of someone slipping while walking across the space. Secondly, outdoor carpet adds some cushioning and protection from cold and hot temperatures for bare feet. This type of carpeting is typically not installed over a pad and many carpets are specifically designed to be glued directly to the concrete or other flooring.
Another excellent use for this type of carpeting is for boats. End Of The Roll Flooring Centres carries a line of carpet that is specific to the auto marine industry. Its defining characteristic is a low pile, flat surface carpet that usually has a bit of cushion for bare feet boaters. As you can expect, the carpet is also very durable against sun and is water repellent in order to dry without developing a bad odor.
Much like traditional carpet, you have just as many options when it comes to style, colour, and size. Outdoor carpet comes in an array of colour choices, and we have the ability to bind carpet to specific sizes for a customized look. Although you may not see these product options listed on our website, it's because they are seasonal and each of our locations has their own individual stock of popular sizes and styles.

After spending months inside, cooped up from the cold (especially us Canadians), nothing feels better than the warmth and freshness that spring brings to our homes.
