Measuring for Carpet

By Alan J Fletcher - Carpet Expert and Consumer Advocate

 

Regarding the subject of trusting a carpet salesperson, whom should you trust to accurately measure your home to determine how much material you need to buy? 

 

If you were to trust a dishonest or inexperienced retail carpet salesperson to determine the proper measurements you could easily be overcharged for the amount of materials you need. 

 

In fact, it is very common for consumers to overpay for the amount of material they need, and are easily overcharged by hundreds of dollars!

 

What is Over-Measuring?

 

Consider this: 

Most two-bedroom homes need about 100 yards of carpet. 

 

If you were to select a carpet that cost $20 per square yard installed,  for 100 yards your total price would be two thousand dollars.

 

When the salesperson measures your home, all they have to do is tell you that you need 110 yards of carpet, your total price would be $2200.00, a difference of $200! 

 

It's that easy to overcharge you, and it is so common!

 

Note:  Accurately measuring for carpet is an learned ability. An experienced carpet measurer can save you a lot of money by efficiently and strategically measuring your home. In contrast, An inexperienced carpet salesperson can mistakenly over-measure and charge you hundreds more than necessary! 

 

 

But even worse, a unscrupulous carpet salesperson can easily over-measure you and intentionally over-charge you hundreds more than is necessary for materials and labor and you may never become aware of it.

 

Any homeowner could easily be over-measured by 10, 20, 30 yards or more and never be aware of it. this could cost you hundreds or even thousands more than necessary. You need to know how to avoid this common carpet scam, and many others.

 

In the next few pages, I reveal the most valuable information and hard-to-find carpet buying secrets you need to know to save the most money on your new carpet.
