Thanks for your review, Ann. We base the price of carpet installations on the square footage of the project. Since you indicated on your request that the area is 500 - 1000 square feet, I gave you a much lesser price because the total amount you would have paid would have covered the labor price already. After we spoke by phone, you said the area isn't 500-1000 sq. ft. but it was actually 144 sq. ft. Since the total amount would no longer cover the labor, I had to increase the price to make sure my employees are also well-compensated. While I thank you for your feedback, this confusion would have been avoided if you provided the correct project details from the start.
