We didn't get a 2nd or 3rd estimate - which one should ALWAYS get. My husband liked the owner of Atlas Rug & Design Centre Inc., who was very charming. The quote given was $7683.00 (taxes included). We had no idea if that was reasonable or not, but it was within our budget. My husband was impatient and he thought in order not to waste time - he went ahead after just one estimate with Atlas Rug & Design Centre Inc.
However, after the deposit was paid and the rug was ordered, the salesman phoned and told us he MISSED calculating one entire room! That was another $1273.19 (taxes included) additional!
Workmanship was alright - that was another team.
Anyhow, my husband still gave this company another chance, when we wanted hardwood floors put in in another house. This time, I insisted on obtaining other estimates in order to compare - now, their estimate was some $3000+ more than another company which we eventually hired to do the job.
Just thought to share this experience with others ...
