Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to prepare for my carpet installation?
If you have contracted Con Carpet to move your furniture please have all breakables and electronics removed, beds stripped, closet floors &
under beds cleared BEFORE installers arrive.
If you are doing your own take-up and moving your own furniture this
should be completed BEFORE installers arrive.
If I am tearing out my own carpet do I need to remove the tack strips?
Unless the tack strips are damaged leave them and the installers will re-use them. If some are damaged the installers can replace as needed.
Does Con Carpet offer financing?
Yes! Please ask your sales associate or designer for current promotional

Does Con Carpet bind rugs?
Yes! While we do not sell premade area rugs we offer custom made rugs. Pricing will vary depending on the material and binding selected. The binding process usually takes 2-3 weeks.
What about my warranty?
Each manufacturer will carry it's own warranty for the material itself.
Industry standard labor warranty is one year from the date of installation.
How long will my new floor last?
This depends heavily on how the floor is cared for. Always refer to the
manufacturer's specifications to keep your warranty valid and to keep your
floors looking their best. Walk-off mats at entry doors, taking off your shoes,
regular maintenance/cleaning, vacuuming, professional cleaning, cleaning up spills quickly and properly, keeping animals nails clipped, using felt pads on chairs and plastic mats under rolling chairs will extend the life of your new flooring.
How do I pay my balance after installation?
We require a half down deposit at the time the order is placed. The balance is due upon completion of the job. Con Carpet does not save credit card information and will not mail a final invoice. Please call or visit our showroom to pay your balance. We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, Cash or Check.
Do I need to seal my tile and grout?
That depends. Most floor and wall tiles are glazed and do not require a sealer. However, if you have natural stone it is recommended that you regularly seal the material with a penetrating sealer made specifically for natural stone. This is an easy process and will need to be repeated depending on where the tile is located and how much traffic it receives.
For grout, this will depend on the type of grout.
