What, precisely, is a "jack-leg installer".
Sure, my younger-than-me landlord hadda knee kicker and installed new
front-room carpeting, for me, but I failed to notice if he had any
kind of leg infirmity. Yeah, the carpet evententually became loose
and had "rolls", but I can't kick. He came thru when I asked and it
didn't cost me a cent. ;)
The installer is the one to look for in the quality department.
I have not had any carpet installed in a while,but did have some
laminate flooring installed by Lowes. Two Mexicans showed up and were
in and out in a couple of hours layind down about 300 sqft in a room.
The job looked good and a year later still looks the same. I would hire
tham again if I needed any more installed.
They even layed a streight edge across parts of the floor and planed
down a couple of high spots.
A few years before I went to a place that only deals with flooring and
the install job in another part of the house looked ok when done,but
shortly after it had a few places where it had buckled somewhat. Also
had a room of carpet installed and was not happy with that either after
a year or two.
This was two of the local men that did that job. Did not think of them
when I wanted the second area done.
