Berber carpet is a popular carpet choice because of its wool-like look and durability. Berber, also called high-level loop, is a weave of tight yarn loops that stand upright, forming a bumpy texture. This type of carpet helps hide footprints and vacuum marks. It is also easier to clean than cut pile or plush carpet, where the loops are cut and exposed to accumulate more dirt. Like any other carpet style, Berber carpets come in a wide variety of quality, style, and performance.

Berber style carpet comes in many different carpet fibers, including high-end wool or nylon, polyester, and less expensive Olefin or polypropylene. If you are in the market for new carpet, it is important to understand the pros and cons of this unique flooring choice.

Cost of Berber

 

As we mentioned, Berber is one of the more affordable options in the carpet world. While it’s difficult to narrow down the price given the wealth of Berber options available, the fiber it’s made from will affect the cost as will the general style. Patterned carpeting usually cost more, and that is no different with Berber carpeting.
