Hey all, where do savvy Slickdealers go for new carpeting? I'm looking for apx 1000 sq ft of decent quality nylon carpet and installation.

Reps for helpful suggestions.

It depends on how high end you want to go, but In my experience with rentals and flips, you just can't beat Home Depot for carpeting and installation. They usually easily beat everyone else, esp. when you factor in you can usually get a bulk discount by joining their contractor\Pro Xtra service and\or getting one of their credit cards depending on what deals they are running at any given time.

Thanks Yanks. I am considering home depot, but it just kind of feels like that's something everybody does. I figured some slickdealers would know a few tricks. Any other suggestions?

It is carpet, so there is nothing special about the process imo. HD has their own installers\contractors and basically gives you free installation most of the time while offering competitive prices on their carpeting (fyi...get their high end padding as it is worth it and makes a mediocre carpet feel like a high end one). The tricks tend to be on how to get a further discount from HD via one of their promos or as a contractor.

To me and most people I should think, carpeting <<< hard wood flooring so by the very nature of it you are not usually looking to spend huge and not looking to go high end as if that were the case, you likely would opt to get hard wood flooring put in not be installing carpeting. Of course everyone's tastes are different, but given their price, free installation and wide selection, it is almost impossible for local installers to compete with HD in my limited experience. They will claim all sorts of things like their carpet is better (generally nonsense as you can get the same stuff at HD) and try to add on some extra services (like painting for example) in order to try to work out a deal with you, but generally they simply can't beat HD on the bottom line if all you want is the carpeting.

Plus, when you factor in their credit card promos and\or Pro\Xtra service, you can potentially get a discount on top of their already low price. Of course they are not always running a promo that helps you in that regard and not always willing to give you a discount as a contractor (and anyone can claim to be a contractor by the way), but usually they throw you a bone.
