Carpet Flooring | Maple Ridge, BC, Canada

Six questions to ask about carpet flooring--at the store!

You?ve decided to get carpet flooring. That?s a wonderful choice because it not only adds warmth and elegance to a home, but it is also functional.

Carpet floors protect against hard falls, reduce noise and have thermal inertia which will make it hold onto heat and save energy.

Question the following:

How much experience do you have in the industry?

Of course, any store can still be both very good and very young; after all, someone may have been working in the industry for many years but just decided to go out on his or her own.

Keep in mind, though, that "industry" can be vague because you want to know how many carpet floors have been installed.

All companies, but especially those who are already established, are concerned with repeat and referral business. A dissatisfied customer will tell at least nine to 15 people about a negative experience, and there?s a 91 percent chance they won?t do business with that company again.

What does the quote include?

You don?t want to be surprised when you keep getting several bills, so ask if the price includes padding, installation, old carpet disposal, furniture moving, measuring or anything that affects the new flooring.

You want it in writing as well, so ask for a detailed estimate.

Also, inquire:

?Will I need subfloor repair? If so, how long will that take, and is there a charge? What will it entail?

?How long before I can walk on the new floor? How long before I can move the furniture back in? (These are often two separate timetables.)
?Can you give me references and are you bonded and insured?

Now explore your lifestyle

This should be done even before you go to the store. The more information they have, the better they can guide you to the right carpet for your floors.

?What is your lifestyle? Do you have a large or small family? Are there kids, pets or elderly residents?
?What is your style?
?What is your complete budget?
?In what room will it be placed?
