Home Depot Informative - Be Careful With Home Depot Carpet
CALGARY -- Thought I would check out Home Depot for their $199 install price. I received their quote and the install price was $1585. (all the extras they charge for) They measured and said I needed 35 square yards more than what Deerfoot Carpet measured. I have used Deerfoot carpet for 25 years - honest people, fair price. Home Depot came up with $4100 to do the job, while Deerfoot came up with $2300 for similar carpet quality and $2700 for slightly better carpet quality.
Note: Both measure the exact same suite. Carpet quality comparable, underlay quality comparable, but a huge difference in price and amount of material required. In fact the difference in amount of yardage at Home Depot would be enough to do 2 more bedrooms.
Be careful and get more than one estimate before making your choice.
