Well, we got our first bid on carpet. Ouch.
I guess the fact that I am wanting to use a pattern carpet and given the dimensions of my room, there just ends up being a lot of waste. The bid was for Stanton Lake Boden in black and was $2340. I have about 260-270sqft of space to carpet, but have to buy 27ft (which is over 350 sqft). At $4.08 a square foot, thats a lot of scrap.
I called one other place in town, and their price was nearly identical for the carpet itself.
Pad was a 40oz synthetic fiber at $220
Install was $448
Freight was $65
Tax $133

I also checked some of the wholesale places down in Georgia. They were not much better at $3.73 per square foot, but then you had to deal with delivery.

Got a couple of other places to check, but I don't have a good feeling that its going to be much better.

Ouch indeed! 

 

Is the scrap largely the result of a pattern on the carpet and 'roll width'?   I might haven't decided 100% on carpet, but if the patterned dynamic creates that kind of waste, I"ll need to make sure to look at the repeat patterns & roll width in my selection process.

Kevin,
You are correct. The size of the roll (13'2") with respect to my room, and the pattern itself, are what is causing the problem. I've thought about going with something simpler, but I just don't think it would do the room justice. I'm going to see if they are willing to work a bit on the price and hopefully we can come to a deal.
Craig

Another amazing theater! Not sure how I missed it over the last 4 years, but great to see it nearing completion.
