I hired them never showed up ,the owner gave excuses, tried to reschedule just unprofessional, not honest. Extreme poor customer service.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: I checked our records as far back as the beginning of the year and I show no appointment listed with you whatsoever. I am certain you have the wrong company. Occasionally other appointments take longer than anticipated and I call with an option to arrive late or reschedule, but I do not show an appointment with you anywhere in our records. Please recheck your information.

Project: Install Vinyl or Linoleum Sheet Flooring or Tiles
My five rooms of new flooring, absolutely beautiful. Excellent and professional installers did a great job. Love the new look I now have in my home. Desy V
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you very much for sharing your positive experience with other Home Advisor readers. I am so happy that you decided to continue the grey/taupe luxury vinyl plank into the kitchen and hall, as well as the living room and dining room. It expanded your entire home. And I am sure you are happy to get rid of that carpet on the front porch. Now upon entering your home, you see the beautiful wood-look vinyl that is 100% waterproof and easy to clean, and you have continuity all the way through to the kitchen. What a transformation! The floor is commercial grade, so you will have it for decades. It is also one of the very few vinyl plank floors that is made in the USA. My very best wishes to you. God bless.

Review by in Shrewsbury, NJ
Project: Install Carpeting
Sue is great, very attentive to our needs and budget and since we were moving, she didn't try to upsell us. The stairs were done beautifully and even the realtor made a comment how nice they looked.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you so much for your kind comments. I try to tailor our selection to the various needs of our clients. If someone is selling his or her home, it is key to have a carpet that looks great, but it doesn't need to be a tight, dense pile. It is better to have a greater concentration on pile height in such cases. The lower density has less yarn so is less expensive, but the higher pile, when installed over an ultra-thick, soft padding gives the home a luxury feel. It also absorbs sound, so conversation and other noise when the realtor shows the home will be more quiet and intimate with less echo. It is vital that the carpet is a neutral color, but, ironically, "neutral" consists of a broad spectrum. Today's color choices most often lie in the cool palette, which is the taupe-grey range. Taupe will also accommodate warm colors, so it is what I often recommend for resale. It is definitely today's perfect neutral. Changing the carpet is not very expensive, but it will definitely help sell a house quickly and possibly at a higher price. The potential buyers see a fresh, clean, move-in look and can easily visualize their families living on clean carpet, not matted and stained carpet that gives the impression of neglect. I work with many realtors and they agree that this is a very good strategy. Best of luck to you in the sale of your home in Shrewsbury, and warmest wishes for your new adventure in my hometown of Freehold.

Easy process, but would have liked to get more than one company to choose from.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you for your review. Home Advisor sends customer leads to 3-4 contractors in the requested category. Carpet Centers of NJ was one of them, and I responded quickly as I always do. I cannot control the response of the other contractors. I'm glad we were chosen, even if by default, and that you are happy with our work and easy operation.

Review by in Toms River, NJ
My overall experience with Tony was good; however, there was a mix up with my appointment time. The office told me he would arrive at 8:30am, Tony thought it was 9:30am, and he arrived at 9:45am.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you for your review. I am sorry for your inconvenience regarding the start time of your carpet repair. I am happy that you are satisfied with the workmanship.

Project: Install Carpeting
Susan was very congenial and understanding when it came to setting me up with Tony who installed my carpet in a timely fashion and without any problems. The entire process went along without a hitch and it is nice to see there are still some craftsmen in this world.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you very much for your kind words. We try to tailor our services to your needs, which is a great advantage of dealing with a small business with 36 years experience. We are knowledgeable and flexible. Tony has been with us a very long time and has his heart in his work. The skill and dedication of the installer is key. I am so happy that you acknowledge his talents. I will pass your comments along to him. Please call us if you need anything else. Best wishes to you!

Project: Install Wood or Stone Laminate Flooring
I'm happy with the work that was done but working with the owner was very frustrating. She did not follow up with me regarding the installation date which kept getting pushed back and I had to reach out to her three times to see when it would take place. Then there was an issue regarding the delivery of the material and she was very ambivalent to the whole matter. Once the flooring was installed the carpet guy had to come to finish where the flooring and carpet met and she did not call me to tell me when he would be coming and he showed up at my house when we weren't there. Overall, I am satisfied with the work that was done. The installers were thorough and good at what they did but working with the owner was a very frustrating process.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: I am very sorry for your inconvenience. I could not give you a definite answer as to the installation date because it was back ordered from the mill. They were out of stock and it was in the production process, so the delivery date was unclear. We installed it as soon as it was delivered. We usually schedule the carpet installer to come out the same day as the hardwood installer is winding down, but I did not want to delay your installation any further than was absolutely necessary. On the rare occasion that a product is back ordered, we prioritize that job. I had it installed immediately regardless of the availability of the carpet installer so it would be 99% complete. Then I had the carpet installer stop by after another job to kick in the carpet to the transition molding of the wood. Delays from the mill are rare, but completely beyond my control. I am very happy that you love your floor and the workmanship, and wish you luck in the sale of your home.

Sue was great. Installers were awesome. Entertaining as well
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you so much for your outstanding review. The carpet you selected was perfect for your basement. It has a nice soft pile that is much more comfortable than the commercial carpet, and we are able to put plush carpet over our 1/2" padding, the thickest available. Both provide optimum insulation in the cold, winter months so your family will want to use the rooms all year round. Of course, it is 100% continuous filament nylon with lifetime soil and stain resistance and superior crush resistance so it will look beautiful for a very long time, despite the low cost. The subtle darker flecks in the pile give the rooms a laid-back, casual look which is great for the pool table, adult or family parties, or the kids hanging out with their friends. Glad you enjoyed our complimentary entertainment from our installers! lol. I wish you all many happy years in your "new" family room.

Project: Install Carpeting
Provided many more carpet samples. Responded quickly, professionally. Work done quickly and professionally.
Response by Carpet Centers of NJ, Inc.: Thank you so much for your outstanding review. I am so happy that we found a carpet that worked well with every room, given the variety of wall colors and decor. That is often a challenge! It also went perfectly with the adjacent tile so there was no visual break in the middle of the house. It flowed right through, giving a feeling of expanse and non-restriction. Your carpet it 100% continuous filament nylon (of course) with superior stain and soil resistance so it will last and last, despite the bottle-necking in your traffic flow due to the furniture and room placement. The super-thick padding will be very comfortable and provide warmth over your concrete substrate. It was very nice working with you and I wish you many happy years ahead with your new carpet!
