Don't make these carpet-buying mistakes

Now that you’ve chosen carpet as your floor covering, it’s time to pick out what you really want. There are many options to choose from, but this will be narrowed down as you speak with your flooring professional about your own specific needs.

Some important factors concerning carpet

You might notice that when you are shopping for carpet, you hear a lot about what you should look for and focus on. For instance, it’s certainly important to consider which fibers are going to be best for your own home. But while these aspects of your shopping experience are very important, it can be equally as important to keep in mind what you want to avoid.

The biggest mistake you can make with this type of flooring is to let someone other than a professional do your installation. For one thing, it takes very specialized equipment and a great deal of experience to get the installation right the first time. This is especially true with odd sized spaces, staircases that will be carpeted, and large rooms where seams will have to be joined. But it’s also true that some manufacturers won’t even honor their warranty, unless the installation is professionally done. This can be a huge deal, should anything arise in the future.

Another mistake that many homeowners make is thinking they can save a few dollars by skipping the underpadding. It’s true, initially it does actually lower your budget. However, the problems the lack of underpadding can cause are certainly not worth it. Not only does a good quality underpadding give you a much more comfortable underfoot feel, it can actually lengthen the lifespan of the floor covering. Without it, everyday wear and tear can eventually cause it to prematurely wear out.
