RC Willey has pretty good sales, and if you're just doing a small room you can get a remnant that is quality carpet for cheaper.

Stainmaster has sales and RC Willey, Home Depot, Lowes all reap the benefits by offering free basic installation when you purchase Stainmaster carpet.

When we finished our basement prior to selling our home earlier this year, we used these guys:

Factory Flooring Direct. 435-833-0203 or 801-250-0799

http://www.factoryflooringdirect.com/

They are out in Lakepoint, on the way to Tooele, but they came to Murray no problem. I think they have a SL county contact number, and may even do UT county too.

We told them on the phone what we were looking for and the price range - they brought us out a whole bunch of samples to our house, took measurements and called us with estimates. When the price was higher than what we could do, they worked with us to get it down. They were awesome!!! We were thrilled with the carpet - ended up being way cheaper and way nicer than the stuff we had paid triple for from Lowe's for the rest of the house! The installers did a fabulous job - no damage to baseboards or paint.

They were a referral from our neighbors a few doors down, who had their entire house recarpeted (1900 sq ft) for about $2700.

Thanks for sharing this. We are in Tooele and I have wondered about them. We will be looking for carpet soon for our basement. Good to know. THANK YOU!

Agree with Wards!!!! I shopped around to EVERY carpet place in the Salt Lake Valley, and they were by far the best quality and the best price. I loved working with them. They were awesome!!!!!

Do NOT buy carpet from RC Willey--we had a terrible experience with them that lasted for over a year (I could give you the whole story but it would take me an hour--let's just say they bid us a price, we paid in cash, then they "claimed" that bid was incorrect and we still owed them almost twice what we paid AFTER the carpet was already installed.) Found out after the fact that they have a reputation for over-measuring.

We have bought carpet through Georgia Carpet Outlet and they are FABULOUS. We got a great remnant for a great price and the owner himself delivered it to get it out to us fast.

We also got our most recent carpet through Carpet One and that was a good experience. The salesman was honest and didn't try to oversell us on stuff we didn't need. We found the same carpet at another store and they not only matched the price, they BEAT the price by $2/yard. They also gave us a price guarantee so when we go back to get new carpet for the upstairs we will be able to get the same carpet for the same price if the price goes up in the meantime.
