i'm on a concrete slab. My neighbor had vinyl installed and it squeeks when walking on it. Do you install and guarantee no squeeking?
Haven't heard of a squeeking issue regarding vinyl flooring before as it is typically glued directly to the concrete slab. If you are concerned about squeeking there is one brand that is sold with a cork backing which could eliminate that potential problem.

Does SMART carpeting refinish existing hardwood flooring?
Unfortunately we do not perform that service. If you look in yellow pages under flooring installation or flooring refinishing you'll find people that can do that.
does installation of hardwood flooring include moisture barrier and/or sound reduction padding?
We only install a moisture barrier when we are installing engineered hardwood or laminate over a cement sub-floor. The cost of the moisture barrier is included in the cost of the hardwood. It is not proper installation technique to use a moisture barrier over wood as it is not necessary and the nails used to secure the floor would make holes in the moisture barrier. We do offer a sound resistant pad that can be installed over a wood floor and there is an additional charge for that. There is no sound pad install over cement as we need to glue the flooring directly to the sub-floor. Hope we have answered your questions.
Do you move any furniture or is that something I have to do?
SMART Carpet moves furniture at no charge.
What kind of flooring do you recomand for pets?
There are several different flooring types for pets. There are various types of "pet proof" carpet as well as vinyl and vinyl plank options. Probably the easiest thing would be to to set up a no obligation estimate to see what carpet or flooring would work in your home. Just call 1-800-526-7847.
How are your installation charges determined? Per square foot?
Our installation charges vary depending on the product. For Hardwood Flooring there is no installation charges....it is all part of the square foot price. For carpet, laminate or vinyl there is a flat installation fee of $49 whether it is one room or a whole house.
That's great. Is there a place on this website where I can find the price of your different laminate flooring?
We do not post prices on our website. We come to the home and give FREE estimates once you pick a specific product.
How early can you have the laminate flooring installed after the estimate? Can the install dates be on weekends? Or only weekdays? How long does it normally take to install one room? A hallway? What is the approximate cost for ripping up the carpet?
SMART Carpet & Flooring performs installations six days a week Monday through Saturday. The time frame from order to installation varies depending on the product you pick but it can often be done within a few days. The time frame for installing a specific area depends on the issues we encounter during the installation, (sub-floor moldings, door thresholds, etc.) A SMART Carpet Representative could better answer all of these questions once they see the particular job. There is no charge for someone to come to your home, measure the job, show you samples and give you a quote. Just call our toll-free number at 1-800-526-7847 to set up an appointment.
Do you offer commercial carpet options and installation?
Yes, SMART Carpet and Flooring carries a large selection of commercial carpet options including carpet tiles. If you'd like to set up an appointment to see samples and get a FREE estimate just call our toll-free number at 1-800-526-7847. Thank you for your inquiry.
Can you install Laminate over Ceramic Tile ?
In many cases laminate flooring can be installed over ceramic tile. It depends on the condition of the floor and the height of the grout line. It might also affect which padding is put under the laminate. We could better advise you after we look at the current tile floor.
Does Smart Carpet do carpet binding?
Yes, SMART Carpet and Flooring can bind new carpeting for our customers.
Do you "stretch" carpeting???
We do stretch carpeting as a service to SMART Carpet customers as it is part of our lifetime installation warranty. Unfortunately we cannot do this if you did not purchase your carpet from us.
What kind of underlayment is recommended, for hardwood flooring that's going to be nailed down to a subfloor.The goal would be to have a moisture barrier and some cushioning.
Typically we use a product similar to tar paper that goes underneath nailed hardwood. that acts a a moisture barrier but no so much as a cushion as that is not desired under hardwood. A cushioned pad is what's used under laminate. If you would like to set up an appointment to have someone come to your home and show you the options just call out toll-free # at 1-800-526-7847(RUGS)
What type of carpeting do you recommend that is non allergy and pet friendly for my co-op apt.?
The Mohawk Smart Strand line would be an excellent choice for your situation. It comes in various price ranges and has the durability and low allergy rating you're looking for.
I am looking to put flooring in my basement and would like something low in cost and durable to install onto a concrete floor. What do you suggest?
You actually could have several options depending on whether you have any moisture issues in your basement. Typically hardwood or laminate flooring are not recommended for basements but laminate flooring can be used in some cases. Your best bet is probably carpet or vinyl. If you would like to have one of our representatives come to your home and assess the situation just call our toll-free number at 1-800-526-7847(RUGS)
What if we want to install carpeting in our family room and there is a heavy entertainment center that probably can't be moved out of the room? how do you deal with carpeting under it?
The proper way to handle that installation issue would be for us to disassemble the entertainment center, move it and then re-assemble it after the carpet installation. There may be a nominal fee to do that. We could advise you better once we see the actual piece of furniture. It is possible to install the carpet around the unit but that is not advisable. If you would like to set up an appointment to have us give you an estimate just call our toll-free number at 1-800-5626-7847(RUGS)

Is it okay to use Swiffer Sweeper wet mop cloths for finished wood floors on laminate flooring?
Swiffer Sweeper wet and dry cloths are one of the recommended ways of cleaning woods floors or laminate flooring. You do need to be careful to not get the flooring overly wet on a continuous basis as the moisture could eventually damage the floors.
