Finding a Carpet Installer

By Michael Hilton

Most carpet installers that work for carpet retailers in your area are not employees of the retailer. They are subcontractors. Out of the $7.00 to $10.00 that you pay for carpet installation, $3.00 to $5.00 finds its way back into the pockets of the retailer. In essence, the installer does not receive all that you pay for the carpet installation.

Installers have not had a substantial pay increase in more than 20 years. This could be a part of the reason so many carpet installation-related problems exist. Many installers may be forced to rush through a carpet installation in order to get a second carpet installation completed that day. It may pay dividends to search our your own installer and pay the entire fee to the installer.
