Important Buying Info

Buying carpet is one of the most expensive purchases the average homeowner will make. While most people consider the current condition, anticipated life, anticipated repairs, the cost of maintenance, resell value etc. in the purchase of a home or new automobile, the primary decision in the purchase of new carpet typically rests with color and whether it will match the sofa or wallpaper.

For most consumers, carpeting is a blind item in which the purchase decision weighs heavily on the salesperson's recommendations. Little does the consumer know that the salesperson may have been selling TV's or washing machines two weeks prior. In addition, most retail carpet salespeople take the path of least resistance during the sales presentation. They tend to lead the consumer to products that other consumers have purchased in the past or they search for a product with a color line that offers the specific color that a consumer is seeking.

This web site has been designed to educate the consumer in the differences between perceived and actual value. It will guide them through the selection process and inform them of carpet installation traps.
