Karastan Smartstrand or Karastan Wear Dated nylon???
We're putting carpeting in bedrooms and living room. We have narrowed it down to The Great Indoors and a local Cappet One retailer. I have tried to research Smartstrand carpet and see lots of information on this carpet's stain features. However, I'm concerned about its durability and long term wear qualities. The salesman mentioned a Karastan Wear Dated nylon and suggested that it would be a better long term option for durability. We are looking at a frieze style of carpet. Any opinions from carpet professionals or consumers that have used the Smartstrand product. We are getting the Karastan upgraded, 8 pound pad with the moisture barrier. Karastan Smartstrand is $4.28 sf and Karastan Wear Dated nylon is $3.96 sf which includes install, upgraded pad and moving furniture. Any help would be appreciated.
