Have 420 sf of carpeting I needed done. Lowe’s quoted me $1,700 for the carpet and pad I wanted.
They measured for 560sf and when I contacted them to tell them they measured wrong, they said the installer needs at least 2 extra inches on every side to install and that they have to go by what the installers say. I would have thrown over $350 in the trash can had I gone ahead with the project.
Do your homework ahead of time and save yourself time, money and hassle. Don’t shop at Lowe’s.
