Have you checked to see what’s under the carpets? We had ours pulled because we discovered we had lovely hardwood. We had it refinished and stained a darker color and it looks fab.

I second the lovely hardwood, If you don’t have them in good condition- get some Pergo laminate (mock hardwood) from Lowes or HD. Then you can always change a room by switching up throw rug colors and textures to warm up or space out a room.

As far as replacing as In like you want to keep carpet due to kids, pets or rental property whatever- the only negative I have heard is the estimates they give for the installation can be misleading, but Im sure its dependent on your specific Lowes/HD. You can purchase it then just hire a local trusted and rated installation company. Or Get estimates from everyone, and choose the best contract for you price range.

We used Home Depot.  They were fast and did exactly what they were supposed to.  We aren’t too excited about the 99cent/sq ft carpet.  It is cheap and sheds alot.  But Mother-In-Law paid and we didn’t have a say.  I’d rather spend a little more on something that would last longer.

We used Home Depot and we were really happy with them.  We had to replace the carpet right when we bought our house so we were on a serious time crunch. (We didn’t want to wait a long time to move everything in to the bedrooms) I forget the name of it but they have a certain number of options which have a quick turn around of 7 business days for ordering and installing.  It turned out that after we placed our order they found out that they were out of stock on the color we selected.  They ended up upgrading us to the next level of carpet so we could get the color we wanted and still be all set within 7 business days.  They were really great to work with and installation was only $97.  We also opened a HD card and got 12 months interest free financing.  One thing I will suggest is you pull up and haul away the old carpet on your own.  It will save you a TON of money.

Try a local independent company. Our best quotes have come from a local to us company.

@julies1949: That’s interesting!  Any before and after pic?

@Moose1209: How much was the total? 

I second the finding local co. opinion, they are usually cheaper from my experience (15 yrs ago)
