Home depot carpet


Sure hope Home Depot does a good job installing carpet. They beat the crap out of the local carpet stores price on the exact same carpet. Padding and everything is equal. Price was almost $1500 less. Quote their measure guy did is very professional and shows how it will all be laid and seamed. Hope they do a good job installing it. Local reviews and people I spoke with are all pleased. Plus they honored a $100 coupon. Basically 1000 sq ft basement full install, tack strips, 2 rooms, 3 closets, padding etc.... For $2700. Plus the older women who helped me was great, wanted to hug her when I walked out of there.

Good luck. Like everyone else, they have good and bad installers.

Hope that basement is dead dry and they use the proper padding with a vapor barrier.
Carpet in a basement makes me cringe.

Yes on all counts. New house built 1 year ago. No sump pumps to fail, high elevation with good run off. Rubber membrane on outside foundation. Padding with water barrier. I don't think I have anything to worry about. Appreciate the comment though. thanks

"No sump pumps to fail" already has me worryed.
No pump, no way to relieve the hydro static pressure under the slab.
1, year old house, would anyone now what water issues are going to be need to be addressed?
Reality sucks.

Thanks for the concern. Wasn't questioning the build of my house. It's got drainage for water on inside foundation and outside foundation. I'm high enough with enough pitch where drainage flows to the sewers. I don't need a sump pump to get the water up and over. Anyhow, not lookin to debate the design of my home. All is good. Thanks

As a tile guy I rarely have reason to complement any of the Big Box stores. In general they have a poor selection, low quality tiles and employees that don't have a good level of knowledge on the proper materials and methods for a good installation.

However, carpeting is much easier to sell. I had a very good personal experience at Home Depot earlier this year for carpeting in my basement. I caught a sale and am very pleased. The secret is where you are and which installation company they use in your area. The work was done in a very professional manor, I give them a "10". Hope your experience will be the same who ever you choose.

Note: Just saw this disturbing article tonight, may want to consider who you give your $$$ to.
