    Default The "go to" all-round carpet for any of your rentals?

    Everytime I end up having to re-carpet I start looking around for bargains. But I was wondering if anyone here with multiple rentals uses a stock standard type of carpet for all their rentals that is reasonably hard wearing , cost effective , looks good and is the right colour not to emphasize future stains?

    The one -stop carpet for all our needs perhaps? This can keep things simple if one has multiple rentals.

    A local carpet supplier in my area when I asked what he uses for his rentals [he said he had a couple] tells me he puts cheap crappy looking stuff in which was on at $30 metre . In my opinion said carpet which he pointed out to me while I was looking in his carpet factory it looked rubbish & perhaps was just trying to offload it on the next sucker.

    I have tended to go for:

    Wool around $120 metre

    Generally heavy duty

    Colours: Grey , blue ...Staying away from lighter colours and generally avoid brown , black , green red

    Cut pile solution dyed nylon/poly. Most companies import it by the tonne these days. Some of it feels horrible but that comes down to their manufacturing process. But it lasts pretty well. We use 12mm underlay that seems to be the best combo for longevity.

    I like the idea of the same carpet, same colour, in all rentals. Makes patching easy, if that's required and may help with a bulk discount.
    Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!

    Yes that's the idea. I always find it a pain going through the same motions everytime trying to find the current best deal going for a reasonably good product when I need to replace carpet. I end up going with a different product each time.
    As a rental is not your own family home one tends to concentrate on the factors of price, longevity and colour over others such as wow factor, pile depth etc.

    Has anyone tried the carpet (they use the rhino for advertising) in their own home by any chance? I have heard conflicting stories about it. Currently hearing about carpet moth being a problem with wool carpet.

    i'm testing second hand commercial carpet tiles in one property right now. Cost is super low and if there is any damage you can replace a single tile. Not 100% convinced yet so only testing in one property... ask me in 12-24 months
