By offering industry-leading options from waterproof laminate varieties to soft-yet-durable carpet selections, Wayne’s Carpet makes it easy to revamp and refresh one’s home or business via a wide array of in-stock options.
Wayne’s Carpet continues to roll out cutting-edge flooring varieties and styles for customers to utilize and enjoy, and is dedicated to helping residential and commercial property owners as has been the case for nearly half a century.
Customers continue to outfit their homes and businesses with vinyl planks and wood laminate styles that feature waterproof cores and are perfect in areas such as the kitchen or restroom where potential flooding caused by overflowing drains, sinks or toilets would typically be catastrophic. These choices are available in 12-by-24-inch styles that are crafted to resemble tile patterns and connect easily during the installation process.
The environmentally safe and pet-proof waterproof planks are ideal for families with children and animals, and feature resilient 12- or 20-mil wear layers, which represent .33 to .50 millimeters of durable wear-layer protection that aren’t prone to warping or buckling even in high-traffic areas. More manufacturers are also constructing the waterproof planks with an underlayment layer attached, which makes the installation process much more efficient. Homeowners may also select from some of the world’s softest — yet durable — carpet varieties to address traffic in various rooms and spaces. Carpeting has evolved to feature consumer-friendly characteristics, including soft fibers that don’t shed, fade as well as stain resistance and waterproof backings that make addressing spills much easier than in the past.
These innovative carpet styles are constructed with solution-dyed fibers that help colors remain true even in Hawaii’s harsh sunlight; much like a carrot, the fiber holds its color throughout when compared to traditional fibers that were likened to a radish with red on the outside and white below the surface layer. The friendly flooring experts at Wayne’s Carpet take “full service” to the next level by offering professional installation services and providing free estimates and in-house measurements to make buying a floorcovering a seamless process. The business is utilized for large residential and commercial projects where quality and consistency are of utmost importance, including D.R. Horton, various military base housing complexes and hotels.
Wayne’s Carpet features three convenient Oahu locations in Kaimuki (3025 Waialae Ave.), Kaneohe (45-620 Kamehameha Hwy.) and Sand Island (330 Sand Island Access Road); customers from Kailua to Kapolei and Waianae to Waimanalo need not travel far to enjoy the quality service and selection provided by Wayne’s Carpet for more than 40 years. As a reminder for customers at the Sand Island location, the business has moved to a larger space in the same building and offers a renovated showroom.
Outer-island shipping is also available for those interested in incorporating the floorcovering options outside of Oahu. Log on to WaynesCarpetHawaii.com for more information including store hours and additional flooring varieties from which to choose.
