Will my new floor fade?

Are you worried about your new floor fading?

Nylon carpets can fade and loose color from sunlight over the years.  In my experience most carpets take years to change and with extreme sun for a decade or more can dry out the backing and become brittle.

Hardwood on the other hand will fade more quickly and will be most apparent when you move area rugs and/or furniture from sunny areas.

If you want want flooring products that won’t fade look at the warranties.  You will see Mohawk’s SmartStrand carpet and any manufacture’s polyester carpets have a no fade warranty.

You can also find no fade warranties on most hardwood look products such as laminate flooring, Luxury Vinyl Flooring, Water Proof products such as Paradigm and Coretec and others.

So, if fading a deal breaker you can find many options for your home that will add design and function to your space.
