Carpet Buying Guide by Consumer Advocate

Free Carpet Buying Information and Advice by Consumer Advocate Alan Fletcher, a 30-year veteran of the carpet business.

I’ve read virtually all the free  Carpet Buying Guides  and brocures that are available on the market and on the internet today and I find that they seem to lack something that is very important to any homeowner  in the market for new carpet or flooring products.

What do they lack you ask?

As helpful as they might seem at first glance, there is only limited information provided to help consumers make wise and informed choices. They point out all the positive qualities of the various types of carpet and carpet styles but fail to point out all the negative aspects that homeowners really need to know about.

For example, did you know that looped Berber styles can be a wonderful choice for many homeowners if chosen wisely, installed properly and the correct padding is selected. But what they don’t tell you is that children and pets can easily snag the loops causing them to come loose and easily ruin the carpet very quickly. This type of carpet damage is difficult and costly to repair and the carpet warranty does not cover snagged or pulled loops.

But there’s more…

There are dozens of ways for dishonest carpet retailers to cheat homoweners and overcharge them by hundreds or even thousand of dollars. Most homeowners don’t have a clue how to recognize them or avoid carpet scams.  None of the carpet buying guides I’ve read mention anything about avoiding common carpet scams and rip-offs, but I do and it’s all free on my website.

On my website I expose the carpet industry for what it is,  and help unsuspecting homeowners gain enough key information to choose new carpet wisely, how to get a fair and square deal and how to make sure your new carpet is installed properly.

With thousands of carpet types and styles to choose from and limited access to  accurate carpet specifications, buying new carpet is not as easy as most folks think.  This is why it is absolutely critical that homeowners have free and unfettered access to honest and complete carpet information.

So how do you go about learning the truth about selecting the right carpet? As a 30-year carpet expert and consumer advocate, I recommend you check out my free website and learn what all homeowners need to know about how to buy new carpet wisely and avoid making costly carpet buying mistakes.

I discuss all aspects of carpet selection, carpet padding, carpet installation and how much you need to spend on YOUR carpet project. You’ll learn how to measure carpet yourself, how to negotiate you best carpet deal and make sure your carpet is installed correctly.
