By Alan Fletcher - Nationally recognized Carpet Expert & Consumer Advocate


"Buying new carpet today is a daunting task! Homeowners need to be very careful to choose wisely to avoid making costly mistakes and major headaches. 

Over the past 18 years I have helped thousands of homeowners choose new carpet wisely, save hundreds and avoid common carpet scams. I can help YOU make wise and informed carpet choices too!" 


I've been in the carpet business for over 30 years, but I don't sell carpet anymore. I'm a carpet advisor, an author of several books about Carpet & Flooring and a nationally recognized Consumer Rights Advocate. 

I am proud to say that my carpet buying articles, advice and opinions have been published in major newspapers, magazines, trade papers and newsletters worldwide. My passion is helping homeowners like you learn how to choose the right carpet & padding that is capable of meeting your needs, goals, lifestyle and budget - 

To help save you hundreds by teaching you how to negotiate your best carpet deal, To explain what must be done to ensure you get qualified installation, And how to recognize and avoid common scams & rip-offs by sly carpet salespeople and unscrupulous carpet retailers. 

Let me start by saying that there are plenty of reputable carpet retailers out there, but it's very hard to know the difference between a "Reputable" Carpet Dealer and a "Ruthless" Carpet Dealer until it's too late! After 30 years in this business I have learned how to recognize those wolves in sheep's clothing. That's why I've created my own special list of recommended carpet dealers all across America.

I'm a homeowner just like you and I surely don't want to overpay, be ripped off or be scammed on the products or services I need. One thing I know for sure...Scams are everywhere, especially in the carpet and flooring business! It's sad, but consumers must be on guard constantly, we must be well informed and take the time to educate ourselves before we make any major purchase. 

Over the past ten years I've helped countless homeowners choose carpet wisely and save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on their carpet purchases. I can help you save time and money, avoid scams and make wise carpet choices too. But you have to be willing to take the time to get educated. 

Buying New Carpet Soon? I freely provide dozens of pages of carpet buying information consumers need in order to buy new carpet wisely, avoid scams and save hundreds. 

If you have the time, you can search through my website and take notes, but the best way is to download my Complete Carpet Buying Guide. You can print it out, save to your hard drive or read on your home computer as often as you wish. 

You'll also get my special money-saving information and advice not available on my website! I've kept the price low at $14.95 so everyone can afford it. You'll also receive special bonus materials and my special "Preferred Customer" email address so you can email me your carpet questions and get the fastest and most detailed responses!

Most homeowners don't know how to buy carpet today - even if they have purchased carpet many times in the past. There used to be only about 8 basic grades of carpet available: apartment grade, builder grade, three grades of residential and three commercial grades. Not anymore. There are dozens of varying carpet grades and qualities available.


What is a Carpet Grade? 

How do I know what grade to buy? Which grade is right for you? That's the $64 question. Choose to low a grade and your carpet will wear out too fast. Choose too high and you will spend way more than you need to. 

You need to know how to choose the carpet grade that is just right for your needs, goals, lifestyle and budget. Sounds easy but it's not. Where to start? What Grade of Carpet Should I Select?


Homeowners often trust a carpet salesperson to steer them in the right direction and suggest the right grade or style of carpet. This can be a very big mistake. Why? Because many carpet salespeople are not qualified or don't take the time to ask you about your needs and goals to advise you wisely. 

Carpet is a major home improvement purchase, you need to follow the advice of a seasoned professional who has your best interests in mind. You need to choose the right carpet based on your needs and goals. I can help you sort it all out. That's why I wrote my ebook and have created my website -  A totally free Consumer Carpet Information Network.


Padding & Installation

Consumers who select the wrong grade of carpet stand to lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars. But choosing he wrong carpet padding can ruin even the best quality carpets. Carpet installation done improperly will void the carpet warranty and can easily cut the life-span of any carpet in half! How do you select the right pad? How to you make sure your carpet is installed properly? You need the answers to these questions and many more.

Let's not forget about all the carpet scams. In my Complete Carpet Buying Guide ebook, I reveal how you can avoid carpet scams, choose the right pad, get qualified installation and lots more. It will help you save a ton of money as well as give you peace of mind knowing you have a carpet job well done! 

If you have carpet buying questions, send me an email: 



Important Note:

Is your Carpet Installer Licensed, Bonded & Insured? Check Now to see if you carpet or flooring installer is subject to your State Licensing Regulations. You should always call to make sure who you hire is properly licensed, bonded and insured according to the State and Local Laws where you live. You can also check to see if there have been any prior complaints filed against the contractor in question.
