Pro Tech Home Inspections – Dos and Don’ts of Choosing Carpet

Do develop at least a fundamental understanding of how to identify the quality of carpeting. While you won’t have to be an expert on carpeting, if you have a general sense of the aspects that influence a carpet’s quality and how well it will perform, then you can avoid choosing the wrong carpet.

Don’t put too much emphasis on the face weight of carpeting. Unfortunately, too often salespeople may use face weight as a critical selling point and lead consumers to believe that higher face weight means better carpet. This isn’t always the case. Purchasing carpet based solely upon face weight can result in committing to a carpet that doesn’t fulfil your goals.
