We have a vast variety of customers consisting of carpet retail stores, wholesalers & commercial builders. We also have walk-in customers that come to us for area rug repairs. Let me take a moment to emphasize that anybody with the need for carpet binding services is welcome to contact us!
Although, there are cases in which we can not be of assistance, such as wall-to-wall re-stretch or hand-tufted carpet repairs; in those cases we have the ability to recommend an installer or store that is capable of completing the work, based on your location. That being said, we're a great source for contacts in the flooring industry.
Let me get to today's topic of "manufacturers & environmentalists" :
DWP Carpet Binding considers itself a manufacturer because we receive rolls of carpet then fabricate them to a user-friendly product. Thankfully, the equipment and materials we stock allow us to make a finished product. This is an advantage that not all of our customers have. Which leads me to the "environmentalist" part. Over years of doing business retail stores & commercial stores end up with numerous remnants from previous install jobs. The type of carpet varies as each store has a specialty or favored product. In many cases, after years of storing these remnants, they may decide to clear out their storage units or warehouses for extra space that is needed. This is where we come in!
Dan, the owner of DWP Carpet Binding, will make an offer for a bulk load of carpet. This prevents our customer from having to deal with the cost of dumpster fees or drop-off fees, fuel costs and labor to bring their remnants to a landfill/dump. If the offer is accepted, DWP Carpet Binding then picks up trailer loads of carpet to sort through and fabricate the remnants.

I'd like to say that these pieces are pristine upon arrival to our shop, but they're not. Sometimes the carpet remnants are soiled, have crush marks or indentations from being stored without a core, or in rare instances they have had water damage. If a piece is not capable of being salvaged because of damage or soiling, then we will cut it up and throw it away. Whatever their status is upon arrival, DWP Carpet Binding finds the way to make them useful to someone! It takes a lot of work, but we feel it's best to make use of a good product, rather than allow them to fill up our landfills or dumps.
Having the ability to fabricate these remnant pieces has salvaged many trailer loads of carpet. Just this past weekend, Dan went and picked up two trailer loads, which we are currently sorting through. We have hundreds of remnants in stock (although, I think it's safe to now call them area rugs as opposed to carpet remnants; the glorious result of carpet binding services)!
Since these pieces come from retail & commercial stores, they range from high-end goods, to commercial goods and everything in between. DWP Carpet Binding currently stocks woven goods, wool rugs, Berbers, plush carpets of various heights and densities, vinyl backed carpet, sisal carpets, a few sculpted carpets, carpets with rubber padding for a backing, low-pile commercial goods ... the list goes on and on. I don't think I need to say anything about color scheme, but if you're wondering we've got a multitude of colors, patterns & designs!
We do not want to claim to sell carpets. It is not the primary focus of our business, nor will it ever be. Our stock pieces may not fit the needs for everyone, yet they are an inexpensive way to get a top quality product without having to pay full price!
We will claim that we are manufacturers & environmentalists. We are proud that we are capable of salvaging carpet goods, ultimately aiding in saving our environment and mother Earth one carpet remnant at a time!
If you are in need of a quick replacement for a hallway runner, door mat, or area rug please consider giving DWP Carpet Binding a call or stop into our shop to check out our stock of fabulously salvaged goods!
We also offer rug-hold product for those pieces that need help staying in place!
