Questions re: new carpet for entire home

BD323August 30, 2011

We are nearing the end of our remodel and addition and are looking at carpet. At this point we are being quite budget conscious. We have found a Tigressa (Shaw product)nylon frieze usually $2.99 on sale for $1.49 plus $1.40 for installation and 8# water resistant pad. Our home is a ranch and I am concerned about the high traffic areas. Do you think this is the best route to take for carpet in the entire house? I realize that this carpet won't last forever, but we are hoping to get something inexpensive that will hold up for at least 7 years. I guess my fear is buying something too cheap and then getting junk.... Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.

Do you wear shoes in the house? That will cause much faster wear. My parents (9 kids and a dog) built a new house once upon a time, banned shoes in the house, and 13 years later, when they sold, it still looked good as new.
