The Downsides to Buying Cheap Carpet in Springfield, Mo.

When renovating your home, rental or office setting, people often look to buy carpet for installation.  The reasoning is if you buy and install the right kind of carpet, it will last a long time.  But how do you know what kind of carpet is best for your space, and what are the downsides to buying a lesser quality carpet?

The Downsides to Buying Cheap Carpet in Springfield, Mo.

Buying cheap carpet in Springfield, Mo. doesn’t necessarily mean that the carpet itself is cheap – it could be excess quality carpet from a large construction job, also called carpet remnants.  Carpet remnants can also be the end of a carpet roll in a store.  Often, flooring stores in Springfield, Branson, Nixa, Ozark, Republic and Rogersville all purchase carpet in bulk so they can save money.  When they get towards the end of the carpet bolt, they often mark it as a sale item in order to sell off the remaining carpet.

Whether you are buying quality carpet remnants leftover from a construction job or simply purchasing cheap carpet in order to cut costs on a renovation in Springfield, Mo., there are a few downsides you should know about.

Carpet Remnants Often Come Without a Warranty.

Even if you buy quality carpet remnants for a cheap price, often this type of carpet doesn’t come with a warranty.  So, buyer beware!

Selection is Often Limited with Carpet Remnants.

If you are purchasing a carpet remnant, selection is usually low.

Find the Right Size Can Be an Issueut.

Purchasing a carpet remnant can be hassle – one because of the above-mentioned selection, and two, finding the right size.  Carpet remnants are usually at the end of the bolt, so there may only be twenty feet or less of available carpet. 

Polyester carpet – cheap financially and in performance.

While polyester carpet fiber is attractive due to it being inexpensive, color choices and cushiness, it tends to shed and isn’t as durable as nylon.  Great to exercise on, but not great for high-traffic areas in your home or office!  Find something with at least a 34 to 40 oz face weight.  The higher the face weight, the heavier and more resilient the carpet!
