Purchase Guide

 

The Things you Need to Know Before You Purchase

Floor Covering.

 

Price is directly related to quality and you get what you pay for.

If you purchase a carpet in a price range between $18.00 – $22.00 per yard installed with padding, don't expect to get more than a few years of use regardless of what the manufacturers warranty states. If these are your needs go for it, just know the truth up front and do it right the first time and don't pay for the same job twice.

The quality of your pad is as important as the quality of your carpet.

Did you know that if your pad is not a certified no crush pad, your warranty from the manufacturer will be void?

Square Foot VS. Square Yard Pricing

When you see an advertised price by the square foot it is not what you think.

Lets say you have a room that is 10 x 13 you would say to yourself, this is 130 square feet of carpet and if the carpet is $2.00 per foot, my cost would be around $260.00   

Carpet generally comes 12 feet wide so you have to pay for a 12×13 which is 156 square feet and this would cost $312.00
Why do the home centers and the T.V. guys advertise like this?  TO DECEIVE YOU.  
If you see a price for $29.99 per yard and $4.00 per foot, Which one do you think is a less expensive price? There are 9 square feet in a yard of carpet so you need to multiply $4.00 x 9 and that gives you $36.00 per yard. A low square foot price looks very inviting but as you can see this is not the case.

What is private labeling ?

Private labeling is when a company pays a manufacturer to change the names on products so you can't shop their prices and they can advertise that they have the lowest prices around.

KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING

Many people come in to my store after getting a quote from another business with little or no information. Customers will feel the carpet and say " This is the carpet I saw at another store." I will then ask the following questions :

Q: Who is the manufacturer ?
 A: I am not sure.

Q: Is it Polyester or Nylon ?
 A: I do not know.          

Q: What is the ounce weight ?
 A: They did not tell me.

Q: What kind of pad are they selling you ?
 A: I did not ask.

Q:What are the warranties ?
A: I don't know

Q: Who is installing your floor covering ?
A: They did not say
        

Armed with the right knowledge businesses will not be able to take advantage of you.
