The Best Carpet Buying Guide is Free?

I’ve read virtually all the Carpet Buying Guides and sources of carpet information available on the internet today. I find that they all seem to lack something that I think is very important to any homeowner who is in the market for new carpet.

What Do Most Carpet Buying Guides Lack?

Complete and honest carpet information. They tend to point out only the positive qualities of the various types of carpet and styles, but fail to point out all the negative aspects that homeowners really need to know.

For example, did you know that looped Berber styles are a wonderful choice for many homes if chosen wisely, installed properly and the correct padding is selected.

What they don’t tell you that children and pets can easily snag the loops and ruin the carpet very quickly. This type of damage is difficult and costly to repair and the carpet warranty does not cover snagged or pulled loops.

So how do you go about learning the whole truth about selecting the right carpet? As a 30-year carpet expert and consumer advocate, I recommend you check out my free unbiased carpet information website. You can learn what all homeowners need to know. Discover how to choose new carpet wisely and avoid making costly carpet buying mistakes.
