Lowe's - Beware of Wrong Carpet Measure
SPRING, TEXAS -- I had Lowe's come out and give me a free carpet measure. Their installer measured 87 square yards. I wound up going with a different company. They came out and measured 69 square yards. That's quite a difference.
I don't know if the installer was having me buy extra for his own house (I would hope not) but the measurements were off by quite a large margin. Do the math and it adds up to a lot of money. I'm not sure how a buyer is to protect themselves against this other than having a couple of companies come out and measure to make sure before you make a carpet decision.
