An anagram created from the word carpet refering mostly to tufted broadloom that is installed wall-to-wall. Contrived by the installation trade to describe the many inherent and various problems (eg shading, crush, wrinkling, delamination, etc.) associated with the final product due to mass production at the mill level of what basically turns out to be very expensive crap.
One installer to another; "It seems every roll of crapet I take out lately has some kind of issue."
