Empire Carpets charged us too much money. For what we paid, we should have gotten high quality carpet and a thick pad. Instead we got carpet that didn't hold up one year and a very thin pad.
They also put the carpet in wrong. It is supposed to be folded over by tile, but it was just cut to the edge and nailed down.
We only went with them because we needed carpet in a hurry. Other places provide better carpet and pad for the same money at a fast turn-around. Now I am paying double to replace it. Do NOT use Empire Carpets!!
