** Beware of carpet dealers who only recommend subcontract installers to install the carpet that they sell to you. You pay for the carpet and pad at one company, then arrange to get the carpet to your home, then arrange for another dealer-recommended company to install it, whom you have to pay separately. As a result, you end up paying sales tax for the carpet, and if the carpet is damaged, or any problems occur during the installation, or afterward, both companies may consider servicing your carpet a hassle. The store may blame the installer, the installer may blame the store, and you're stuck in the middle. Don't even think about filing a claim for a warranty issue! The dealer who sold you the carpet, if they even bother, is only responsible for providing you with new carpet. No padding, no carpet removal, no new carpet installation. You would have to pull out the defective carpet on your own, transport it to a loading dock, pick up the replacement carpet, then hire someone else to install it again.
