  • Vantage Premium

    I ordered a Vantage Premium carpet from Ace. It came in Wednesday. I looked on the sales receipt and it had "discontinued" under the item description. I finally find a carpet I like and they do away with it?? Guys, tell me it was a typo. Tell me it aint so!

      I got a Vantage flyer from a local supplier last week introducing a new carpet with a 3 year warranty. Didn't say anything about discontinuing the Premium.

        Re: Vantage Premium

        Vantage has replaced the Premium Carpet with a new Capret called the "Supreme". The way the premium was constructed it was hard to maintain tolerences from batch to batch. So we made the change to go to the "Supreme" becuase of the consistency. The "Supreme" is still a one piece woven fabric carpet covered in pvc just like the premium, however it is how the pvc is apllied to the carpet that has changed. The premium was only coated one side with pvc and it was very hard to control the amount of pvc that would saturate though the fabric. This batch to batch thinner and thicker giving each carpet a difference in stiffness. The new "Supreme" is now constructed by dipping the woven fabric entirely into the pvc and rolled to the proper thickness, malking it much more consistant, and totaly encapcilating the fabric in pvc, making less prone to oil penitration. The "Supreme" is now the carpet that will sold from now on.

              i have noticed the last 3 premiums, if thats what they were, didnt look like the ones ive gotten for 10+ years now. Instead of the "tufted" surface, its now smooth. I had wondered why they changed the premium, now i know, i think.
