Carpet

NYLON OR POLYESTER CARPET

Which is best for you?

Nylon is still considered the most durable and versatile fiber choice for fine carpets.  It continues to provide elegant color and pattern options that stand the test of time.   The ability to offer outstanding performance and cleanability have kept nylon in the forefront of carpet design.  With the latest technology, nylon fibers have become softer and more luxurious than ever before.

Polyester has continued to make great strides as a more affordable alternative to nylon.  It also provides a beautiful appearance combined with a naturally soft and luxurious feel.  The key to purchansing polyester carpets is to buy a heavier face weight.  This will allow you to experience the same level of performance as a lesser weight nylon carpet.  Another key factor when shopping for a polyester carpet is to buy a "solution dyed polyester".  The term "solution dyed" means the color goes all the way through the fibers rather than the color sitting on the outer layer as in a "non-solution dyed" polyester.  This ensures the color won't wear off, wash off or fade.  Additionally, many of the higher quality polyester carpets offer additives that absorb odors or fight bacteria and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew.
