All Carpet dealers listed in my directory are locally-owned and are hand-picked by me personally. They must pass my own special set of strict rules and requirements to be listed in my directory and inclusion is by invitation only.  Over the past 23 years, I have found that on average, just 1 out of 10 Carpet Dealers are able to pass my "Preferred Carpet Dealer" requirements! Why? Many Carpet retailers use sneaky sales tactics to try to cheat and deceive you.



Why Do You Only Recommend Locally-Owned Carpet Dealers?

I receive and answer thousands of emails every year and hear plenty of horror stories from unsuspecting homeowners who have bought carpet from the big box stores or those nationally-advertised shop-at-home carpet retailers. The list of consumer complaints is too long to list here. You can search the internet yourself and find plenty of complaints to read if you like. Buying carpet is a major expense and you deserve to get treated fairly!


That's why I only support and recommend only a select few honest and reputable, locally-owned carpet dealers. These are your neighbors who have been in business for a number of years, have a good reputation, provide first class customer service have a vested interest in your community. They pay state and local taxes that help support your local schools, maintain your roads and so much more. They stand behind their products and workmanship and will be there for you, from start to finish, to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase!

Unscrupulous carpet retailers hire "strong-arm" salespeople that come to your home to show you samples, provide a free measure and estimate and then do everything they can to convince you to buy "right now" before you have a chance to comparison shop. Never agree to buy from any salesperson who pressures you. There is no such thing as a "Today Only" price. Take a few days to make your final decision and compare with other locally-owned carpet retailers near you.


You need to make sure you select the Right Grade of Carpet that will meet your needs and goals, get honest measuring, get a fair and square price and not become the victim of a Common Carpet Scam! You should always get several free estimates and only buy from an honest and reputable, locally-owned carpet or flooring retailer. Print out several copies of my Free Carpet Shopping Form and use them to comparison shop. My Free Carpet Shopping Form is a great way to gather all the key information you need to compare carpet you are interested in and help you make wise and informed choices.

Buying new carpet is a major expense for most homeowners.

You can rest assured that no carpet or flooring retailer can buy their way onto my Preferred Carpet dealer Directory at any price. I don't receive any sales commission or "kickback" from your carpet or flooring purchase, no matter who you buy from! I use all my 30+ years of carpet & flooring experience to locate and identify the absolute best of the best Carpet / Flooring dealers to recommend to my readers.

I am confident that you will recognize that the Carpet Dealers I recommend are honest and reputable and will go the extra mile to earn your business and treat you right!


Where You Buy New Carpet is Important.

The simple truth is... even if you make all the right choices, you still need to buy from a Reputable Carpet Dealer who will treat you right... before AND after the sale, provide honest measuring, have reasonable prices and provide quality installation services. If any of these aspects are less than excellent, then you stand to lose more than just time and money...

The Lowest Carpet Price?

If you shop around and get several bids from various carpet retailers, don't automatically buy from the dealer with the lowest bid. While getting the absolute lowest price is important, the lowest price isn't always the best deal if you end up getting low-quality carpet, padding or shoddy installation.


Carpet Prices Too Good to be True?

Many unsuspecting homeowners are lured in by television commercials claiming huge discounts on new carpet and carpet installation or getting two rooms of carpet for the price of one. Folks, The sad fact is, in today's carpet business you get what you pay for! There is always a "fine print" catch to these advertised TV offers. It is commonly known that they tend sell you inferior carpet and flooring products and then overcharge you (nickel and dime you to death) for each and every little detail your job requires to make up for the discount they gave you on the flooring. If it sounds too good to be true then it likely is.


I firmly believe that first-class customer service and qualified installation are just as valuable and important as the carpet and padding you select. It doesn't matter if you get the lowest price on materials if the installation is done poorly. It also doesn't matter if you get the lowest carpet price if it is poorly made and doesn't last as long as you hope. Buying carpet is confusing, complicated and frustrating. That's why I created this website, to help homeowners make wise and informed carpet choices.
