Hiring a carpet installation service for your Marietta home is a very big decision that shouldn't be taken lightly. The potential consequences of making the wrong choice can be devastating, both emotionally and financially.

Luckily, there are a few things you can ask before you hire a carpet installation service for your Marietta home that will make the process a lot safer and hassle-free. Here is a quick rundown of questions your potential installer should be able to answer to your satisfaction before you will hire them.

1. How Much Experience Do You Have with This Type of Work?

Obviously, you're going to want to go with a carpet installation service for your Marietta home, that has the experience and know-how to get the job down quickly and properly.

It's important that you specify that you wish to know how much experience they have with carpet installation in particular, not how long they have been in business. This matters because there is the possibility that they have been operating a flooring store for 40 years, but only recently began offering installation services. This level of specificity will go a long way to ensuring you get a straight answer.

2. What is Included in the Estimate?

Different companies offer different services at different prices. Some companies include the price of preparation of the space, removal of waste, and other services associated with the job to be done, but others might not. Be sure to ask what is needed to get the job done, what is included in the estimate, and what you will need to make other arrangements for yourself.

By demanding this level of specificity, you will save yourself the possibility of some pretty extreme headaches in the future and will be less likely to be left holding the bag financially on something unexpected.

3. Do You Have References or Examples of Your Work?

Word of mouth is a great way to get a feel for the company you are considering. Ask to speak with some of their former clients, so you can ask them their thoughts on their experience with the company in question. Even better, ask if there are examples of their work that you can inspect for yourself, to make sure they are providing the level of quality you demand. If you are not knowledgeable enough about how to appraise their work, bring along a trusted friend who is knowledgeable to help you decide if their work is up to snuff.

Just by asking these three simple questions, you can gain a great deal of headway on making the huge decision of who should install your new floors.
