Dream Weaver Carpet Review

Dream Weaver Carpet Review

If your dream is to add comfort and warmth to your home, one of the brands that you may come across in your search for new flooring is Dream Weaver. Dream Weaver is a leading brand that uses the latest technology and innovation to create comfortable, durable carpet flooring. This includes PureColor fibers, which are designed to look beautiful for years to come.

But basing your purchasing decision on the marketing of the carpet manufacturer isn’t a wise move. After all, the manufacturer isn’t going to tell you about the problems you may encounter after you install your new flooring. Instead, it’s best to go to the best sources for unbiased opinions: consumers.

In this guide, we’re going to take a look at the benefits and drawbacks of Dream Weaver carpet. We’ve scoured consumer reviews and have done our research to provide you with the information you need to make a more informed purchasing decision. Why spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a product that doesn’t deliver as promised?

We’ll explore the pros and cons of Dream Weaver flooring. We’ll look at features including durability and pricing to help you make the decision of whether to pull out your wallet … or keep searching for the right flooring for your home. Read on to learn more about Dream Weaver carpet.

Is Dream Weaver Carpet Durable?

Carpet is a popular choice for many households because of its warmth and comfort. However, one of the biggest worries that comes along with owning carpets is durability. Is Dream Weaver carpet able to withstand the daily traffic of a busy household?

Fortunately, Dream Weaver has used innovative technology to create durable carpeting that can withstand daily traffic, as well as messes caused by children or pets. The most notable feature of this carpet brand is its PureColor solution-dyed fiber. This fiber is more resistant to wear, won’t fade when exposed to sunlight, resists stains, and won’t bleach from spot cleaning.

Sound too good to be true? Dream Weaver backs up these claims with warranties that are truly unmatched. All PureColor carpets come with lifetime warranties against staining, pet staining, and fading. If your carpets are stained or damaged after proper installation and care, the company will repair or replace them.

Dream Weaver also offers warranties against soil resistance, abrasive wear, texture retention, and manufacturing defects. The length of the warranties range from one year to 25 years and vary by collection.

Of course, like other carpets, eventually, you will begin to see wear and tear. This is especially true with heavy traffic throughout your household, improper care, or improper installation.

You may also take additional steps to ensure your carpet looks its best, such as removing shoes when walking on the carpet, keeping pet nails trimmed to prevent snagging on carpet fibers, vacuuming daily, and calling in a professional for cleaning when needed.

What Styles & Colors Are Available?

Unless you plan on remodeling your entire home, you want your flooring to complement your interior. You want to choose carpet that looks at home with your furniture, the paint on your walls, other flooring installed throughout the home, and your décor. Luckily, Dream Weaver offers plenty of color and style options to suit any home.

Dream Weaver offers multiple styles in four collections: Pure Color Polyester, Pure Color Soft Polyester, Pure Color Nylon, and Pure Color Soft Solution Nylon. You’ll have your choice of different styles including cut pile carpet, textured carpet, and luxury cut loop carpet.

Dream Weaver also has a large selection of colors. Choose from lighter shades like Eggshell, Dove, or Porcelain, or darker shades like Summer Bronze, Honey Beige, and Utopia.

Is Dream Weaver Carpet Affordable?

Before you tackle your home improvement project, you’ve most likely put a budget in place. To determine if Dream Weaver carpet is a budget-friendly flooring option, let’s first take a look at the average price of carpet.

The price of carpet varies based on a number of factors, including the retailer you select, the brand of carpet, and the overall quality. Prices vary from less than $1 per square foot to about $5 per square foot.

While the cost of Dream Weaver carpet varies based on where you purchase the carpet as well as the style you select, you should expect to pay around $1 to $2.50 per square foot. When compared to other brands, Dream Weaver carpet is very competitively priced.

However, this is simply the cost of the carpet itself. Professional installation, additional materials, and tools for self-installation will add more to your total project costs. We’ll explore these costs in a later section.

How Do I Care For My New Carpet?

To get the most out of your new carpet, you want to make sure that you care for it as recommended by the manufacturer. Not only does this prolong the life of your Dream Weaver flooring, but improper care may cause your warranty to become void.

Fortunately, caring for your new Dream Weaver carpet isn’t difficult at all. Daily carpet cleaning can be performed using a carpet vacuum cleaner. Dream Weaver recommends using a model recommended by the Carpet and Rug Institute.

The manufacturer also recommends professional cleaning using hot water extraction every 12 to 18 months. Spills should be immediately cleaned up by blotting with a damp white towel, and spot cleaning can be performed using a cleaning product recommended by the Carpet and Rug Institute.

Dream Weaver provides a care and warranty guide online that provides all details to consumers. The company also has a spot cleaning guide to help you remove stains safely from your carpet.

Can I Install Dream Weaver Carpet Myself?

While it is possible to install Dream Weaver carpet yourself, pros do not recommend it. In fact, improper installation can void your warranty, so it’s best to turn to a professional for the job.

However, if you do plan to take the risk of installing the flooring yourself, it’s important to note that there will be additional materials and tools needed to properly complete the job. This includes a carpet pad of the right thickness, a knee kicker, and a carpet stretcher.

Since most consumers don’t readily have the skills or the necessary tools to do the job themselves, the wisest move is to hire a licensed professional installer. While you will pay roughly $0.50 to $2 per square foot just for the installation, the peace of mind that you’ll have in knowing that your flooring has been installed properly is well worth the additional expense.

Final Verdict

Dream Weaver is a leading brand in the carpet industry, and with good reason. Its PureColor technology and exceptional warranties ensure that you are purchasing a durable product that’s easy to clean and maintain. You’ll have a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from, all at a budget-friendly price.

On the downside, though, self-installation is a risk that could void your warranty. While this is an additional expense that you have to calculate into your project budget, the competitive pricing and other features of Dream Weaver carpet certainly make it a top contender among carpet brands.

    Am looking into the Epic 1. I don’t see how it can mat with the nap being so short and tight. Are all the negative comments for the Epic 2 or 3? Because all those naps are much higher so I can se where they might mat.

    I’m on my 2nd claim for Dreamweaver carpet. Fibers are everywhere, wearing down and now I have waves throughout my home. Said it was defective last time and it’s the same issues I had then too. Beautiful carpet and very plush but not worth the money to have this many issues.
    I see remarks about the foot traffic and vacuum marks, that’s going to happen when you have such plush carpet. I was vacuuming every other day but it fills my canister up each time I vacuum that I’m afraid I won’t have any carpet left. No shoes ever, no one is home 4 days out of the week and it’s just my daughter and I. It wasn’t a year before things started to go bad with the carpet each time.

    I purchased Tranquility by Dream Weaver which was installed the end of November 2019. The salesman went on about how impossible it was to stain this carpet, that the company stands behind this and he has never had an issue! I wish I had read these reviews before purchasing as This is the worst carpet I have ever had. It already shows signs of wear and my dog had two Urine accidents after we moved in which I cleaned up as required and both places have left obvious stains. They sent a carpet cleaning service over as my salesperson had gone on about this carpet not staining. The stains seem to have gone after cleaning but within a day they were showing again as if it was coming up from the pad. My salesman also talked me out of the water proof pad I had always used – BIG MISTAKE. Anyway they are in the process of putting a claim in which is taking awhile but in the mean time I see this carpet looking more and more worn just in two months time in traffic areas. I would not buy this carpet again!

    We are in the midst of replacing our SECOND replacement of carpet. Original installation in November 2018, within 6 months the carpet looked 10 years old. Filed a claim, inspector came out, claim was granted – Great! Had the “highest” quality Dream Weaver installed second time around, coughed up another couple thousand dollars to do this, within 3 months I called our salesman out to the home to do an initial inspection – he couldn’t believe it. Another inspector came, 2nd claim was granted. All in all, we have spent $11k in carpet from Dream Weaver and are nsisting we will not do so a third time.

    Do not buy this carpet! We bought new carpet for our entire house before we moved in last January. We had 50oz face weight nylon carpet installed with a 10lb pad as recommended by the installer. We purchased Shaw carpet in our last home and it looked better after 8 years than this does after 1 and this is supposed to be better quality carpet. The solution dyed strands are worthless when they don’t stay together. Please take a look at all the review websites for this carpet and notice that most do not allow comments. I am hoping this site will allow my comment to get published in effort to save others the thousands of dollars it will cost me to replace all my carpet way earlier than I should have needed to.

    We are getting ready to install Dream Weaver Serenity/Mink.

    After reading all these reviews I’m fearful of moving forward with our purchase.

    Please advise

      Hi Marie,

      Definitely avoid it!!! We can’t even clean washable marker off it without it looking 10yrs older. We bought 50oz face weight solution dyed nylon and have had it only a year. We had the installer back and asked him about the wear and why it wasn’t lasting and he said it’s across the industry. Carpet doesn’t last like it used to. Next time I will go to HD. The Dreamweaver company doesn’t stand by their product either. I called to ask them to confirm the carpet I ordered was what we received and they said I needed to work out any questions with the installer.

      For whatever it’s worth, the color hasn’t faded with various cleaning chemicals. Unfortunately, it doesn’t wear well.

      Best of Luck!

      Marie I am a flooring retailer in California, I installed over $150,000 of Dream weaver carpet last year alone (approximately 60 homes) we had 1 claim, and dream weaver paid me to replace the customers carpet without any questions. I have this product in my own home as well. For the price and how it performs you can’t beat it. I hope this helps.

    Hello, I will be purchasing new carpet for my living room. I really liked the Dream weaver “Heavenly” in either the color Buff or Bamboo. After reading these comments I’m very concerned. Has anyone had the “Heavenly” installed? Any advice for me? Thank you

    I forgot to say that in addition to the other caveats that carpet manufacturers have for their warranties, the installers said that the company could deny a claim if you used a certain vacuum cleaner. It has to be “approved”.

    I bought this carpet in November of 2018. We initially loved it but it has worn very quickly. The areas near doors and other high traffic areas are already showing corn rowing and have a flat appearance. I vacuum every 2 days and have had it cleaned regularly. It cleans up pretty well but the fibers are just not standing up to wear at all. The matting/flat look started within 3 months in hallways, closets and doorways. We haven’t reported as I’m not sure I want it again. I do know that corn rowing is not considered a defect from what other people are reporting. I am careful to vacuum from different angles as a matter of practice to try and combat this but it’s getting worse. I fear we will be replacing this within the year as it is not going to stand the test of time at all.

      We have had a similar experience. To make things worse, the retailer marked the carpet wrong and the installers had old and new mixed for seams. One side of a seam would be higher than other and you can imagine what it looked like. Back to the product itself – it seems as though the texture breaks down easily although I haven’t noticed matting, the wear is noticeable. No we haven’t had a professional cleaning since we also vacuum frequently and the carpet is very clean – just worn.

    We had our entire house recarpeted with Dream Weaver carpet East Hampton, Linen in the July of 2018. This summer we went to move some furniture and noticed the furniture had bled onto the carpet. The furniture is at least 10 years old. The furniture had been in the same locations on our previous carpet and there was no bleeding onto the carpet. We contacted the supplier Carpet Outlets of Texas and they has a person come out an inspect the areas. They stated that the carpet company needed to be contacted. A represenative of the company came out and did an inspection then we got a letter from the company stating the warranty only covers household food and beverage substances. and declines the claim. We have tried to contact the company on at least two occasions with no resolution or call back. I don’t see how this is not a problem with the carpet since the furniture is not new the furniture did not do this to our old carpet even when our furniture was new and our old carpet was new as well. I would really like some one to contact me or my husband and discuss this problem with us.

      Our installers told us that carpet warranty was essentially worthless. Regardless of what the problem is, there is a caveat and fine print that you failed in some way or that particular condition is not covered. Like fire and theft insurance on your house. The insurance denies a theft claim because it has to be while the house is burning (fire AND theft).

      I have been carpet searching for the past three weeks. I started wirh looking at Dreamweaver and after all this time, I’ve come back to it.
      My husband and I were thinking that with the lower price, we could replace it again down the road. I would not want to be so disappointed shortly after installation.
      These reviews have assisted me in making my final decision. I won’t be purchasing Dreamweaver.
      Also, EVERY dealer I went to either said they didn’t sell much of this or didn’t even want to show it or discuss it with me.

    We had our carpet installed January 2019 and it started matting after 3 months with just my husband and I walking on it, barefoot. Dream Weaver sent out an inspector, then denied our claim. I will be taking them to court if they do no replace! Carpet it way to expensive to wear out in a matter of months!

      We have the same problem, Beth Berry. After two weeks in a brand new house my 12 year old son first noticed the problem. They replaced the carpet for us as a “courtesy” and we are having the same issues. Inspector came out, took a bunch of pictures- I was thinking there is no way Dream Weaver can deny this. I then took the inspector into our bedroom where we hadn’t had the carpet replaced yet. After two years the carpet looks like a complete disaster. I will continue fighting them on this. I would never recommend Dream Weaver to anyone. This was supposed to be high end carpet.

      I am having the same problem with matting. I have left numerous messages with Diane Gregory (supervisor in claims) With no call back. I was working with Linda Mantooth who filed a claim for me in October and she has since left the company and no one will respond to me. Worst customer service ever.

    I had Dream Weaver carpet installed last week. I called the store where I purchased it and complained today. I had no idea it would show footprints and traffic as much as it does. This was not disclosed at the store. I also do not like the vacuum marks. I did not know that textured carpet would be like this. Now I must live with this for years. I spent too much to replace it for this reason. It is in the master bedroom so company will not see it.

    We just purchased Dreamweaver carpet and it tracks something TERRIBLE. Vacuum marks are aweful too. Embarrased to have company over and have them see it. Going to tear it back out and buy something different. However, grandkids enjoy making snow angels on it.
