Good/Bad brands of carpet


My wife and I recently bought our first home and desperately need to recarpet it. Are there some brands/carpet retailers that I should absolutely stay away from, and others that are exceptional?

I don't really know where to start...but I figure this would do! Thanks in advance for any advice.

CarpetOne is supposed to be the best full service floor store around.
Along with FloringAmerica.

Don't make assumption that a retailer is good everywhere. CarpetOne around here is the absolute worse place to go for anything.

I actually decided to go with CarpetOne, and so far, so good... They install the carpet on the 9th, and hopefully my opinion won't change.

Incidentally, I asked the sales rep if his crew could restretch my upstairs carpet when they install the carpet I bought, and he suggested I just "pay the guys on the side." I have about a 20' long hallway and two empty rooms (roughly 10' x 12') to restretch and he said that $100 should be plenty. Has anyone else have experience with this? I don't want to insult the people putting my carpet in....

CarpetOne has the most extensive training in the industry for salescrews and the best negotiated pricing.
But the store is individually owned and operated, and it also depends on the Manager and Salesperson.
You usually will have the best chance of success although you cannot assume anything about any store.
