Whether buying carpet online or from a neighborhood carpet retailer, in most cases, the carpet installer is not an employee of the carpet seller. Most local carpet retailers employ the use of subcontractors for labor. Every retailer typically claims to "have the best carpet installers", but installers must work for a number of different retailers to earn an adequate wage. If a retailer does not have work for an installer on a particular day, the installer earns no wage for the day.
Since the installer is self employed, installation problems are usually referred back to the installer. The only leverage a carpet retailer has is to tell the carpet installer that they must repair a problem in order to get more jobs from the retailer. However, since carpet installers are in such limited supply, it is the installer that holds all the leverage.
Quality Discount Carpets can refer a certified carpet installer in your area. These installers have been trained and certified nationally by Certified Floorcovering Installers (CFI). In most cases, of the $5-$7 you pay for carpet installation, only $3-$4 finds its way into the pockets of the installer. The local carpet retailer keeps $2-$3 per yard as additional profit. In paying the carpet installer the same amount you would pay for the retailer for the installation, the carpet installers will be able to take their time, earn a decent wage, and provide a better product, than an installer who is trying to rush the installation in order to complete a second installation on your installation day.
