Hello Carpet Captain. I’m one of those folks who do my due diligence before making a major purchase. So your site was an invaluable resource. It took my husband & I over a year to decide on new carpet and we schooled ourselves on numerous internet sites, but quickly found that your site was the easiest/most clear layout of all issues and we thank you for that.

Hi Clarence – Purebac is a newer carpet backing… I think introduced this year. I usually don’t put too much stock in backings in today’s carpets because they’re usually not the limiting factor. That said, this is supposed to be “new and improved,” and since backing are already mostly good, it shouldn’t disappoint unless it’s a mess up on the manufacturers end. The bad news of this is it hasn’t been around long enough to really have an opinion.The good news is it looks like it has a 10-year warranty for delamination, so in the rare event it were poorly… Read more »
