Along with the type of pile and style, kind of fiber influences durability. Nylon has been considered the most durable fiber for decades, but a newer fiber, triexta, offers similar qualities. Olefin, or polypropylene, is known for its moisture tolerance, while polyester is notable for its vibrant colors. Wool is the top of the line natural fiber, and cotton, sisal, jute, and coir are durable.
Wall to wall carpeting is installed with a carpet stretcher. Expect the installers to be experts at matching patterns, hiding seams, and pulling and fastening the carpeting properly, so it doesn't bunch up in future years. It is necessary to lay the padding on the subfloor to cushion the impact of footsteps on the carpeting. Without padding, the lifespan of the flooring is shorter.
