I have never put down carpet before in my house, but I don’t think it could be that hard. I have torn it up a few times in my life, and I have also watched people install it at my last house, and when I was growing up in my parents’ house. I am going to give it a shot though myself, because I am really big into DIY and I also like to save money. Currently I am buying supplies and looking to buy carpet padding that is for sale on the Internet. I have not been able to find any for what I consider to be a good price in local hardware stores, and other places that I have looked, which is why I have decided to turn to the internet.
I know I wn’t be able to get it for as cheap of a price as the company’s that regularly install carpet. But that is obvious because I am just buying enough of it for a single project, and not in bulk to use for multiple customers, as companies that specialize in this sort of thing will do. As such, I am definitely going to have to pay more for it, but that is okay, because in the end, I am still going to save a lot of money by doing this all myself, as opposed to hiring someone to install the carpet for me.
I am trying to go through my supply list and see what I still need to buy in order to start the project. I think I am almost ready to get started. Of course, I have to find a good price on the carpet padding and then purchase it and wait for it to be shipped to my house. Other than that though, I am almost ready.
