This: Most two-bedroom homes need about 100 yards of carpet or so.
If you were to select a carpet that cost $20 per
square yard, installed with pad, for 100 yards your total price would be about two
thousand dollars. A little more if you have a difficult job or have stairs or
other extras fees and charges.
When the salesperson measures your home, all
they have to do is say you need 110 yards of carpet, your total price would be $2200.00, a difference of $200! It's that easy to overcharge you, and it is
so common! The problem is, you have no way of knowing if you are being
overcharged unless you get informed.
How to get informed? That means you have to
get more than one estimate, preferable three or four, and compare. Then you
might need to consider hiring
an independent carpet installer to measure your home for a small fee.
An experienced carpet measurer can save you a lot
of money by efficiently and strategically measuring your home. They can use
waste from one area to fill in the needs in other areas, thus saving you
is your wake up call!
BIGGEST secret to saving money on new carpet is to make sure you have as
little material waste as possible. Only a seasoned and well trained
carpet salesperson can help you accomplish this!
In contrast, an
inexperienced salesperson can mistakenly and cost
you hundreds more than you should pay!
But even worse, a
sly or unscrupulous carpet salesperson can easily
over-measure you and intentionally over-charge you hundreds more than is
necessary for materials and labor, and you may never become aware of it.
Any homeowner could easily be over-measured by 10,
20, 30 yards
or more and
never be aware of it.
This could easily cost you hundreds or even thousands more than
necessary unless you take the time to make sure you are not being over-charged
for materials and labor!
