What is Your Level of Foot-Traffic? Have a busy household? Lots of active kids or pets, entertain friends and family often? Take my Carpet Foot- Traffic Test to determine your unique level of foot-traffic. This will help you decide what grade of carpet you need to buy for your home.

 

In a Heavy Foot-Traffic situation you must buy a higher grade of carpet than if you have low or medium traffic in your home. Higher grades of carpet are made with better materials and better backing systems and are more durable. They are designed to tolerate more wear and tear, but the more durable the carpet is... the more it's going to cost you!

 

How Long Does New Carpet Last?

If you want your carpet to last 20 years or longer, you will need to buy a higher quality carpet than if you only want your new carpet to last just 5 or 10 years.

 

To use my Carpet & Pad Price Chart below, simply cross reference your Level of Foot Traffic with the Number of Years you want your New Carpet to Last. The corresponding number you find is the approximate COST for Carpet & Padding that is designed meet your needs and goals. 

 

For example, if you have MEDIUM Foot Traffic and you want your carpet to Last 10 Years  you should expect to pay about $25 per yard for the right grade or quality of carpet. (providing you buy from a reputable carpet dealer)

Here's several links to my articles about choosing the correct carpet padding and the carpet pad scams you need to be aware of.
