We have finalized the structure of the McAbee’s Custom Carpet website structure!

Our most popular areas of the site are in the main navigation bar, and subcategories have been added as “dropdowns”. For example, while selecting “Products” would take you to a page describing our product offerings, hovering over the “Products” link will present a list of a few of our most requested manufacturers such as Masland, Shaw, Robertex, Mohawk and the like, selecting those items would direct you to the corresponding page.

Obviously, if you are here today, you are seeing links and pages without much content, but please, check back in a a few days to see how we progress.

Your input is very important to us!
