Visit our showroom in Norco, CA where you can view and feel actual samples of the many fine carpets
that we offer. Bend the carpet sample backward; if can easily see the backing, you are looking at a low-density, lower quality carpet that will easily crush. The carpet that you finally choose should offer:
34- to 40-oz. face weight
This is the number of fiber ounces per square yard. The higher the number, the heavier and more resilient the carpet will be.Tuft twist of 5 or higher
Twist is the number of times the tufts are twisted together in a 1-in. length. The higher the number, the more durable the carpet will be.Density rating of 2,000 or greater
Density is determined by how thick the fibers are and how tightly they have been packed. The thicker and heavier they are the better the carpet’s quality and the less susceptible it will be to being crushed. Bend the carpet sample backward. If you can easily see the backing, it’s a low-density, lower quality carpet.A 10-year “texture retention” warranty
This describes how well the fibers will come back to their original shape after being walked upon. Although manufacturers often shout proudly about their up to 25-year warranties, keep in mind that warranties are rarely honored except in obvious cases of product defects from the factory, and also if they were not professionally installed.
