Its time to replace the contractor grade carpet in the upstairs of our house. Its 10+ yrs old and really showing its age. The upstairs rarely gets much traffic, so we plan to put some cheaper stuff up there. Also we plan to rid of the house in 5 yrs or so, so thats about as long as it needs to last. When i had a "reputable" local company put carpet in they did a horrid job, and i had to file a complaint with BBB before i got a fix, which really wasn't a fix at all
Anywho, we went to lowes last night and looked at some of their stuff. They had the cheap contractor grade stuff (under $1 per sqft) to expensive stuff. There prices were as follows:
- $97 to install whole house
- $5 per stair
- $.30 per foot to remove old carpet
- $.13 per foot to remove furniture
- $.50 per foot for padding.
Any of the stuff we liked was around $2 per ft with padding and 10yr warranty.
Where have you guys gotten your carpet?
