Question Carpet install

I am undecided as to installing carpet myself or hiring out the job. I have two rooms to do; one is rectangular and the other is odd shaped and will need seems cut and fitted. Each room is @ 12 by 15. Who are the best people to hire, if that's the way to go. Thanks for any help.

you should hire this job out .. I install flooring and have been on some jobs where people say oh i did this room myself ....and it's really hard to do,but i try real hard not to smile when i say" yeah that looks good" it's not as easy as it looks there is more to seaming a piece of rug that going to the rental mart and getting an iron and a role of tape..... and if you don't stretch the carpet right it will wrinkle cant just kick one wall then kick the next wall........hire it out or you could ruin your rug and then it will end up costing you twice as much......and yes get a profesional flooring installer that is insured

Click on find an installer, then fill in your zipcode.
Look for at least an R-2 installer. R-1 are apprentices.
