Our guarantee to you:
A decade of satisfaction, or we’ll fix it.

Our indoor use carpet warranty means if your product is properly installed and maintained, but the surface pile in any given area is abrasively worn more than 10% within 10 years, we’ll personally pay to replace the area. (Our warranty covers abrasive wear, not tears, pulls, cuts, or other damage due to improper installation or improper cleaning. Stairs are excluded from this offer.) After 5 years, carpet replacement cost is pro-rated.

Carpet should be installed in accordance with the Carpet and Rug Institute’s standard CRI-104 and installed over manufacturer’s recommended pad. This warranty gives you specific legal rights.

8. Carpet shall not be stapled to the tackless strip.
