Why It’s Easy to Buy “Made in America” Products When Shopping for Carpet

Whenever you make a large purchase, like redoing your residential flooring, it’s understandable that you’d want to buy an American product. American-made products offer peace of mind, quality, support local and/or small businesses, and your purchase employs your peers. Luckily, carpet is the most American-made flooring type you’ll find on the market. So, if you’re looking to add  plush and aesthetically pleasing flooring, carpeting is the way to go.

Benefits of American Carpet Products

U.S.A. Carpet Manufacturing

There are 150 carpet manufacturing plants in the U.S.A. Several of which are located in Dalton, Georgia. Large and small flooring companies purchase their carpeting from these plants. So, it’s not only possible to focus your carpet purchasing on an American-made plant, but it’s easy to support smaller communities that are dedicated to making domestic products. All of the major manufacturers are in Dalton, GA, and offer everything you need to make your residential flooring complement your home and lifestyle.

Carpet Manufacturers Located in the U.S.A.

Because Dalton, GA, offers many textiles, the main carpet manufacturing plants reside in the area. Shaw, Mohawk, Phenix, Southwind, Marquis, DreamWeaver, and others are located here. There are also companies in the Northeast that offer innovative flooring types, like vinyl flooring tiles that offer the illusion of hardwood flooring without the headache and maintenance of keeping wood looking new. This means you’ll have plenty of options on carpeting at flooring companies throughout the U.S.A., and still be able to “shop local”. 

Why Not Other Types of Residential Flooring?

American focuses more on making high-quality carpeting. However, other countries are better equipped to export and make other types of flooring. From labor costs to shipping them overseas, it’s still cheaper than making these types of flooring in the U.S. However, because the U.S. has many resources and products to make carpets, it’s much easier to find Made in America carpeting and other types of soft flooring, than it is to find other types, such as hardwood flooring
