When people ask how long will this carpet last, what they are really asking is, “how long will my carpet match the visual appeal of the product from the first day of installation.” Here is a checklist to help you maximize your dollar, regardless of your budget.
Talk about a million dollar question! The best way to answer this question at a high level is to compare carpet to a set of new tires…. And to do that, we will use some hypotheticals on the basis of us being flooring experts, not tire experts.
“I want new wood flooring, but I want REAL wood, NOT the FAKE stuff.” This is a fairly common statement from consumers considering new wood flooring, and rightfully so! Typically consumers make this statement for fear of winding up with a floor that looks like wood, but is made from other materials. Also, solid wood flooring has been the so-called “gold standard” for centuries, and for good reason. It’s a great flooring material with many variations available to suit differing styles and tastes.
Recently, we received a generous referral from a friend and fellow construction industry professional.
The homeowner communicated exactly what they wanted for their new flooring. Style (high fashion), comfort (very comfortable), durability (very durable), and budget (conservative).
