    Hello, we got our estimate for Shaw Caress Cashmere III. This is the carpet my wife likes the most from the Bliss (?) and Mowhawks we have tried. 2 questions.

    1) What are your overall thoughts on the carpet, especially for softness and durability? (we have no pets, hopefully kids in the future. We plan on being in the home a long time)

    2) The padding recommendation from the company is 1/2", 8lb. Is that a high-end pad? My wife wants comfort. I want durability. :)

    Thanks!

    What company? For a long time now, the maximum thickness of cushion recommended for many residential carpets is 7/16", not half-inch. There's still a lot of flooring people using half-inch, but it could void the warranty on your carpet.

    I'd read through the warranty and see what they will or won't cover. That carpet feels amazing, by the way. I can see why you like it. As to your pad question - here's a relevant quote from the warranty.
