          A modern medley of ivory and grey makes up the luxuriously soft shag design of Mohawk Homes Claremont Shag 5 ft. x 7 ft. in White Smoke. Woven with premium polyester yarn, this dense shag style is highly resistant to crushing, matting and every day wear-and-tear, so it will stay newer looking longer. Sumptuously soft to the touch, this style is ideal for high traffic areas with its superior stain resistant qualities. Clean up is a breeze so you can live worry free. Simply spot clean spills with a mild solution of detergent and water. Vacuum as needed.

          I really like the look and feel of this carpet. It is very thick and plush and soft. Very happy with this one. It has a modern design to it that I do like. I'm sure it will be a talking point when quests come over and see it. It says clean up is easy and I like that, we'll see. I would recommend this carpet to others I'm very pleased with it. Have not decided where I will be using it yet but here are some pictures of it laid out.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Install, Great Accent, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Looks High End, Modern, Sturdy

          I really like the look and feel of this area rug, it is 5' X 7' and feels great. It is very plush and so soft, I'm really gonna like this and glad I got it. Right now it is set up in my utility room and looks great. Don't know if it will live there permanently. It looks so good I might want to move it to my Master Bedroom and try it out there. I would really recommend this to others.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This does seem like a pretty good quality area rug. Not as plush as i thought it would be. Sounds like it will clean up very easily, hope so.The one thing I don't know if I like is the cut-off pattern. I guess it is supposed to be a newer modern type of design. To me it first looked like it was a deign flaw, like it was a mistake. Maybe i'll get used to it, I don't know. Maybe others will like this part of it and maybe even appreciate it, but me for know I just don't know. Right now i am putting it downstairs in the kids 'living room' but I think I might move it outside by the pool, not sure but I'm going to try and see how it holds up.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Modern, Sturdy
          Cons: too modern a look i will have to get used to it

          I have used these screws in the past about a million times. They are really nice to work with. The one comment I will make is that you should not use them on composite decking as I had a hard time trying to counter sink them. I know these are wood screws but I thought I could get away with them because they are within my budget, but they didn't cut it. So I had the extra step of pre-drill and countersink to use them. But these are great for WOOD!!!

          I am very happy with the composite decking so far.It was nice putting it down, although the ends were not factory 90*s which was OK with me because I was cutting them to fall on my double joists (for a Hot tub) anyway, and the walls are not exactly 90*s either. The deck measures 17ft. by 15 ft. and I'm about halfway done. Working alone. One thing I will say is that they are extremely heavy and I had to get them up to the second floor so that was awful. I kinda made a ramp out of the old decking material (Cedar from 1986) that has seen better days, and used a rope to pull them up along this ramp. I'm still sore from that. But it does look very nice.

I'll try to take a few pictures of what's finished. Probably the video of pulling them up would have been better, very comical, I should have had some help! And don't judge because I alternated the wood grain!! We do like it. I would recommend to others even with the ends out of square it's just a small step to get them right and they measure an eighth inch or so long, so if you need exactly 16 footers you will be OK with these.. Also I almost forgot they are very slippery but with a large hot tub on this deck we won't be doing a whole lotta walking around on it. Read Less
