Re: Commercial Grade carpet in a residential home?
Some jurisdictions are more regulatory than others and may govern the installation of floor coverings. And commercial building codes may allow for different standards than residential for things like VOCs in floor coverings. In these cases, commercial carpeting may not meet residential codes.
That said, I don't see any problem putting whatever you want in your house. I think there are too many codes and laws that provide questionable benefit to health and safety.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
