What to Ask During your In-Home Carpet Installation Consultation

Maybe you’re trying to turn that new house into a home; or perhaps your comfortable old residence is in need of a touch up to help it feel new again. No matter the reason, you know that new flooring is a must. Hiring a carpet installation company is an important step in this process, but how do you know you’ve found the person for the job? Ask the following questions when shopping around for the perfect carpet installer and you’ll have a better idea about who you are hiring for this important task.

  • Why can’t I install the carpet myself to save money?
    • A carpet installer that is honest and knowledgeable will recommend that you do not try to tackle this job by yourself. Even though it may seem like you will save money, in the long run, it will most likely end up costing you more. This is because you will have to factor in the cost of equipment and properly installed carpet will be easier to clean and generally last longer.
  • Why should I consider a premium carpet instead of a value-priced carpet?
    • Remember, you get what you pay for, so the cheapest option is not always the most economical in the long run. Additionally, premium carpets come with so many additional features and options. While a value-priced carpet may be fine for some applications, if you want true style and elegance, premium carpet just makes sense.
  • Are there any ‘hidden’ charges to be aware of?
    • Will I have to pay extra for carpet padding? Is there an extra cost for carpeting stairs or corners? Do I have pay for you to remove my old flooring? These are important considerations and something you don’t want to neglect. A good carpet company will be happy to help you answer those questions so you aren’t left in the dark.
  • How long does installation take? 
    • Whether you are a homeowner or operating a business, you probably don’t have too much time to devote to carpet installation. Luckily, with the right flooring installation team, the process is quick and painless. Your installer should be able to give you a rough estimate of how long you can expect the process to take, allowing you to plan accordingly.
  • Are there any post-installation instructions?
    • Ideally, after installation you can go about your day-to-day business with no major changes–other than your new beautiful floors off course! However, you may want to prepare for issues such as doors not opening and closing properly, a carpet that sheds, and other small issues that pop up after installation. If you are ready for these ahead of time, they will make less of an impact on your day-to-day life.
