I'm a local flooring installer. I install carpet, vinyl and VCT for residential and commercial clients. You buy the materials and I will install it at a fraction of the cost it would normally cost you.
I have recently moved back to my home town (Lufkin, TX) from Dallas, TX due to family health issues. I have a small privately owned company, Turner Carpets. I have the materials there if need be. I can get carpet so cheap directly from my dealer at a fraction of the cost that it would blow your mind. It is a bit of a drive, but it could save you hundreds of dollars. Trust me; it's well worth it.
All your major shops charge a fortune. There is no way they can touch my prices. I can install 30 oz. first-quality carpet (brand new) with 6 lbs. 1/2 pad and labor for $1.30 per sq. ft. I can install 45 oz. carpet, pad and labor for $1.55 per sq. ft. I can install 60 oz. to 64 oz. with carpet, pad and labor for $2.00 per sq. ft. - turnkey cash, no tax!
I have several referrals and references available. There is a deposit required if I have to go and pick up the carpet in Dallas. If you already have the materials, you pay when the job is completed. I have all basic colors in stock, and some others.
