Purchasing carpet is the third most expensive purchase the homeowner will make and it will last much longer than the last car you purchased. However, most homeowner’s decision usually rests on the color and whether it will match their decorative items. Color is just one factor to consider when purchasing carpet for your home or business. Prior to purchasing your carpet you need to consider the following: 

  • How long do you want your carpet to last?
  • How many people live in your home?
  • Are children and pets factors you need to consider?
  • What is your budget for this project?
  • What environmental factors do you have to consider?

Once you have this information you can then visit American Carpet where our knowledgeable staff will take these factors into consideration and help you choose the right grade of carpet. There are many specifications that go into the consideration of the grade of carpet that will best suit your project. Our staff will discuss and explain the differences in the fiber types (nylon, polyester, olefin, acrylic, cotton and wool, along with the recommended face weight, pile height and density and the tuft twist. Each fiber has strengths and weaknesses that should influence how it is used. In addition there are the various stain protections and warranties provided by the manufacturer.  A knowledgeable consumer will need this information in order to properly maintain their purchase.  There is also the consideration of carpet padding for your flooring choice. Padding supports your carpet and protects it from damage and wear and is the heartbeat of your carpet purchase. Make the wrong choice and it could void your warranty.

With all these factors to consider you can see that unlike years ago, today’s carpet purchase requires a knowledgeable staff with years of experience in the industry.
