That sums up our philosophy. While we pride ourselves on being affordable, we don’t take shortcuts or sell inferior products, but there are ways to keep the costs down. We want every customer to have a positive experience.
1. They look at the big picture when it comes to cost, not just the initial cost of the product. A good installation and proper maintenance makes all the difference in how it looks and acts, and they know it! Right now there’s a DIY craze going on, but don’t try it yourself. Professionals always have the right tools, know how to prepare the subfloor and work with the padding, and they know how to measure a room for carpet. Few rooms are perfect squares; there are stairs, baseboards and closets to work around. Measure incorrectly and you’ll end up with rolls, bulges, wrinkles, and worst of all, carpet that just doesn’t fit.
2. They consider fiber. Most automatically associate nylon with carpet, but there are other less-expensive fibers. Polyester is a fashionable, durable, stain-resistant, mid-priced material that comes in a wide range of colors and styles. Olefin is the least expensive, but its durability depends upon the style; if it’s cut-pile, it’s not terribly rugged, so it’s best for low-traffic areas; however, If it’s in a looped style, like a Berber, it becomes ultra-durable and even as close as possible to being stain-proof.
3. They choose a style that’ll be long-lasting. Berbers are pretty rugged and, as you know, the fiber is Olefin. That fiber is inexpensive, but so is the production process, because Berbers are fairly simple to make. The strongest part of the fiber ends up being exposed after construction, so that’s the part everyone walks on.
4. They can shout, “There’s a carpet warehouse near me!” Why is that important? Because you’ll often see large rolls of inventory, and the price is usually discounted, since the retailer buys in bulk for their carpets warehouse.
