Forum Title: Is better sometimes the best? Difference between two levels of carpet.
Hello... My name is Steve and I too am a carpet over-researcher. Simple question.. Looking at two stainmaster carpets.. BCF nylon 6,6 cut pile carpet.. Price difference of .60 p/sq ft. The mid level carpet has a face weight of 54 oz., twist 6.0 and density of 2,539.. The top level has a face weight of 68 oz., twist 5.5 and a density of 2,528. The top level feels thicker and better under foot because I know there is a difference.. Anything I install is a step up from the builder grade carpet from 15 years ago. Other than the thickness of the carpet, I'm thinking these should be pretty much equal performers.. Is this a correct thought? Thanks for the feedback!

It is not uncommon to put a lesser grade carpet in bedrooms than in the main area. Daris

I was taught shorter pile height wears better than taller. Based on density performance numbers are equal.

You've selected an excellent fiber. Pile density and tuft twist are the next important factors. The top level has a pile height of roughly .968 and the mid level is around .766. The mid level will perform better with foot traffic.
