I wanted to let you know that I found someone locally (via Craigslist! I know, eek!) to come to my house
and re-stretch the carpet in my master bedroom. His name is George Phillips (Phillips Flooring) and
he's located in Watkinsville, GA. 706/224-6469 Not only was he fit me in on short notice (2 days)
he was courteous, knowledgeable, on time, and cost me half of what Dalton Carpet One quoted me.
I also want to note, I called 4 other professional carpet installers in Athens, based on the recommendations
of Home Depot, Lowes and the good old Yellow Pages, and he was the only one who returned my phone call.
My husband said he was professional, thorough and explained to him why the carpet wrinkled and how often one
should expect to have to stretch carpet. (Mr. Phillips likened it to jumping on a trampoline. Over time,
the material gets slack and it sags.) I would definitely use his services again, but I'm hoping I won't
have to for a while! ;)
