So, I had another carpet company over to quote the theater today. Was a bit weird...
1. The rep insisted that the carpet be installed from front to back in the theater, instead of left to right, even though I pointed out if installed left to right, there would be no need for seems.. Carpet comes on 12 foot rolls. The riser is only 7 feet deep. The concrete slab is about 10.5 feet deep, and then the stage is about 4-5 feet deep. Could there be any truth to this? Seems like more work and more carpet if done the other way... hrmm
2. At the end, after he had priced the job (either $1650 for a mid-level carpet or $2150 for a more plush carpet), I asked him how many square feet he figured and he wouldn't tell me... he said "Thats a secret". At first I thought he was kidding, but he was serious. He finally did say I need about 40 yards of carpet...
