“If you work hard in this country, and you are honest, you can reach whatever you want." — Hedayat Mukhtarzada
Carpet dye can cover stains that you can’t remove.
There's more to picking carpet than choosing style, color and manufacturer. Here's what to know to be sure the installation goes well and you avoid hidden fees.
Carpet with pad purchase cost $10-20 for really economy cheap stuff, $20-30 for normal brands, and $30-50/SY (square yard) for high-end carpet, to $100 or more for custom or gold thread and such.
Installation cost does not change much depending on what varpet is installed - generally about $10-20/SY.
So, for normal medium-range carpet I would assume $30-50/SY.

Carpet Installation reviews in Columbia
I was told the work would take several hours and, because I was in the way, I was encouraged to leave while the carpet was being installed. When I came back, after about five hours, the head of the the installation crew was also returning to haul away trash from the job. At that point there was still some installation work, and a lot of clean up, to do. I assumed the boss would be back for the promised walk through when the job had been completed but he, and two of the four workers, left soon thereafter and did not return. The remaining two workers seemed surprised that they were expected to replace the furniture that had been moved. I had to essentially walk them through replacing all the furniture, doors a screen they had removed. They said they could not replace the closet doors, so that was not done. I showed the worst wall damage to one of the installers and asked about having it repaired. He emailed a photo to his boss, and I also sent a lengthy email to him, but I never heard from him. I had to do a LOT of cleanup after they left. There was carpet dust and carpet debris everywhere, including on my furniture. I even found a piece of my bed frame when I removed an HVAC vent to clean out the carpet debris. I also learned when I tried, unsuccessfully, to hook my television back up that the cable wire had been damaged so a cable person had to come the next day and replace it. All-in-all a very unprofessional job.
When I did not hear back from the installer, I tried contacting my sales person but she said she couldn't help and told me to call the 800 number. I called and explained the situation and was told someone would get back to me within 2-4 days. I said that was unacceptable and that I was considering withholding payment. So they said someone would call within two hours. Three hours later I called again and, after being on hold for 20 minutes, went through the whole thing again. I was put on hold two more times while they tried to contact someone who could help. There was no response so I was told they would have to call me back. It was suggested that I just email some photos of the damage but I said I wanted to talk to someone who could address my issues. Several hours later, the third person I talked to was finally able to set up an appointment for an installer to come inspect the work. The person who came to do the inspection agreed that the work on the stairway was unprofessional and that the walls needed to be repaired, but he couldn't tell me when. He also managed to easily replace one of the 'un-replaceable' closet doors. I am now waiting for a call to set up a date and time for the stairs to be re-done and the walls repaired.
I had to pay the entire amount before work began (which I will never do again), but I never received a receipt for my payment nor did I receive any warranty information for the carpet. I noted this when I called and was told both would be mailed to me within 15 days, later amended to 7 days when I pointed out that that time frame was ridiculous. I don't know if
