Finding the best carpet for your home starts out simple and can quickly becomes complicated. You know you want something that will look good in your home, feel great, and most importantly, stay that way for years to come. So you go to the local carpet store or home center and that's when it gets complicated.
Unlike shopping for cars or clothes, a lot of different carpet styles look very similar, yet prices vary and there's a reason for that. The fiber that is used to make the yarn that is then made into carpet is where the difference starts. How that fiber is made into yarn is the second determining factor and how it is then tufted (sewn) into carpet is the next key difference.
More than 90 percent of today's carpet is made of synthetic fiber—nylon, polyester, triexta, or polypropylene. While each fiber has somewhat different characteristics, they are all made basically the same way. (This also includes carpets made from "Natural" fibers, such as wool.)
How well the carpet will perform depends on how well the yarn is made and how densely the carpet is tufted. JB Flooring makes selecting your carpet easy. JB Flooring takes the hassle out of shopping for new floors by bringing our selection to you.
The Truth About Carpet Cost
Shopping for carpeting can be a very confusing journey for many customers due to the difficulty in determining exactly what is included, or not included, in an advertised carpet price. Most flooring stores will price all items ala carte – meaning that they have a separate charge for each item requested. This method gives the un-fair carpet dealer an avenue to quote an artificially low price, or even “free”, offer for “basic installation”, “free pad”, “buy one room and get one room free”, etc. The first point to remember is that one should not be blinded by the offer of a low price for any given element of the total purchase. In order to recapture the value of what is being “given away”, retailers that price this way often charge double for anything and everything else that they possibly can to more then cover these costs. This process can be very confusing by design. Be careful! Remember there is only one price that matters – the final number that you will be asked to pay.
