Why does Nylon carpet cost more than Poly? Capell Flooring and Interiors

Hi, this is Matt Capell with Capell Flooring and Interiors here in Meridian, Idaho. So I have a quick FAQ that I wanted to go over with you today. Basically, we get asked all the time, "So why does nylon carpet cost more than polyester carpet?"

And that question is actually a really easy one. It basically boils down to the fact that nylon is made out of….or the key ingredient is petroleum, which is gasoline. So over the last 20 years as gasoline prices have gone up, the cost of nylon and to make that as gone up as well.

So if you're looking at carpets that kind of feel the same, look the same, have the same face weight, same thickness, the same feel, the nylon is going to cost quite a bit more. And that's just due to the fact of why it's made out of. So hopefully that helps. If have any questions, please just comment below and I'll try to answer those for you. Thanks. Have a wonderful day.
