We just had some nice carpet installed, purchased from a smaller local company. They did a good job except for one thing... the HT room has what I can best describe as "semi-plush" carpet... it was about $4/sq ft and has swirls that are a different feel than the rest of the material. It is soft to the touch. The problem: at the very end of the room, there is a line, about 1/2 " wide, running the entire width of the carpet. WHhen I asked the installation crew what it was, he said it was because the carpet was probably from the end of the roll and that is where it was folded/tucked to keep it gripped. I thought this should not have been delivered (to me this sounds like 'seconds' quality). When I called the salesperson she said that ALL softer carpets show this mark. Firmer ones like Berber have them also but they are not as obvious. She said vacuuming and finger-roughing should get rid of it, else steam-ironing should. If all that fails, then they would come by and see if it needs replacement. My thing is, I do not want to go through the hassle of replacing it, as I have started to fill the room with stuff. I would guess that, if indeed seconds quality, then the seller got a discount from the mill, which I would want them to pass along a substantial portion to me. Another point is that the salesperson knew that this part of the carpet (it is just under the screen, about a foot away from the end of the room) would be covered by a stage as she saw it in the room when doing measurements. However, I may or may not use the stage as it did not look quite the way I wanted it. Am I just being over-picky? The carpet appears ok in other ways. It's just that it was kinda expensive (to me anyway) and I wouldn't mind getting a break on it if I got less than I paid for.
