Finding the Right Carpet Store for Your Flooring Needs

By Ryan Subscribe to RSS | April 24th 2012 | Views:

Are you ready to visit a carpet store to buy your floor coverings? A carpet is a major investment and you will need good advice on how to select the perfect piece for your home. After all, a carpet can serve as the main attraction of a room but it also has to withstand dirt, foot traffic, and other things that threaten its longevity. Of course you need to choose the type of material and the yardage before you set the budget. Once you have an idea of the type of carpet that you want, the next step is to begin the actual shopping.

Comparing Prices

Comparing prices is one of the most difficult parts of the shopping process. While the products of major manufacturers are found in most stores, it is not easy to find the same carpet style and grade displayed at any two stores because there are thousands of styles that are available. Bigger stores also tend to change the names provided by the manufacturers. Your best bet is finding the style name or number on the label of a certain product, and finding two or more stores that carry that product.

Looking for a Carpet Store That You Can Trust

Visiting one carpet store after another can be a tiresome task but it will help you find the best possible deal. The best type of carpet store that you can visit is one that has experienced and knowledgeable carpet specialists who are ready to patiently answer all of your questions. If you have time, check out your local Better Business Bureau to see if the carpet store that you are planning to visit has received a lot of complaints. Ask relatives or friends who have recently purchased a carpet if they can recommend a particular carpet store to you.

Carpet stores that have good lighting and enough room will help you scrutinize their products better. You need to check how a particular rug or carpet looks by laying it out on the floor. It would be better if you shop at a store that provides carpet samples so you can bring samples home to check how well a particular piece blends in with your furnishings. Another important factor to consider is the warranty. Do not settle for nothing less than a written warranty on carpet installation work. Most warranties cover a year from the date of installation but some are extended.

Unless you have experience with installing carpets, you will need to have the installation done by an experienced professional to avoid any horror stories. Almost all carpet stores offer installation services; some having their own installers and others contracting the jobs. Finding an expert installer is a must in order to avoid ruining an expensive carpet. Installation horror stories include: quoting a price and installation date but the installer later tries to double the price; botched job breaks ceramic tiles or damages hardwood; carpet bunches up after mere weeks; carpet was installed properly but there are yards of excessive carpet left due to miscalculation.
