I got my first quote today for replacing our carpet upstairs. Approximately 750 sq. ft., quality pad, carpet just above builder's grade and installation was $2,230. Definitely plan on getting a 2nd quote...would really like to cut that price by $200-$300. Does anyone have any advice on getting a good deal on carpet? I tried asking if it would cut cost if we tore out the old carpet and they said it's included in their price already.
