What to Do Before You Buy New Carpet...
What to Do During The Carpet Buying Process...
Take your time choosing New Carpet
If you can... Keep the original carpet sample you selected and ordered from, until after your new carpet has been installed, use for comparison purposes. Many homeowners often forget exactly which carpet style and color they ordered, especially when it takes several weeks for the carpet to be delivered and scheduled to be installed. This is not always possible when dealing with smaller retailers. They may not be able to leave the carpet sample with you for an extended period of time.
These Key Carpet Buying Questions... Before you sign off for new
You have the right to ask your installer for an Insurance Rider to be issued in your name and mailed or faxed to you prior to having any work performed in your home.
Discuss this with your carpet retailer prior to ordering your new carpet. This can provide you with added protection in some circumstances. Seek professional advice from an attorney if you need more information.
If your installer has helpers, ask to see his Worker's Compensation Policy Rider that lists all the names of his helpers. Check the policy dates carefully to make sure they are current and all premiums have been paid.
