About: Alan Fletcher

 

Why should you trust my carpet buying information and advice?

 

First of all, I don't sell or install carpet anymore. I don't have employees, I don't hire subcontractors or use commissioned salespeople. I just have me and my wife, our websites and a passion for helping nice folks like you choose new carpet wisely, save money and avoid getting ripped off.

 

I have over 33 years experience in the carpet business both selling and installing. My father was a mill rep for 35 years, my uncle owned a carpet store for 40 years. That's over 100 years of family experience.

 

Since 1977, I have sold and installed virtually every type of flooring product including carpet, linoleum, vinyl tiles, ceramic tile, laminate, bamboo, cork, hardwoods, marble and more. 

 

Through the years I've developed working relationships with thousands of homeowners, landlords, builders, and investors who have counted on me for honest and accurate flooring advice. In 2005, I decided to become a consumer advocate full time and stop selling or installing carpet and flooring forever. 

 

I'm a homeowner just like you, and I want to have unfettered access to accurate, honest and complete product information for anything I might need to buy. In my many years in the flooring business I've witnessed a lot of sneaky and sly flooring dealers that hire strong-arm salespeople and encourage them to lie and cheat to get the sale.  I've also seen tons of deceptive advertising where you need a magnifying glass just to read all the fine print! 

 

I find that many flooring retailers don't provide accurate, honest or complete product information to their customers because they don't want you to know the truth! This is exactly why buying carpet or flooring today is so confusing. Every flooring store you visit and every salesperson you encounter will tell you something different. How are you supposed to know who is telling you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

 

I believe that every consumer deserves to know the whole truth about the flooring products they are considering, not just the positive attributes, but all the negative aspects too. That's the problem I see with many flooring dealers, including those who advertise and sell on the internet today. They only tell you the positive aspects about their products and they conveniently forget to tell you about the negative aspects of the flooring products you may be considering. This makes it nearly impossible for homeowners to make wise and informed decisions.

 

Consumers deserve to get a fair & square deal on new carpet. 

 

That's why I have created my own special hand-picked list of carpet retailers. If you choose to visit from one of my preferred carpet dealers be sure to print up my coupon and take it with you. I don't make a dime from your carpet purchase, no matter who you choose to buy from so don't worry about that. I check out my dealers very well before I recommend them to you. 

 

I have a strict set of guidelines they must pass before they get on my list. When you visit, see if they treat you well, are helpful and provide you with a fair & square deal. Then and only then should you decide if the dealer I recommend is worthy of your business. 

 

  • In 1998 I wrote my first consumer carpet  buying guide "Carpet Buying Secrets Revealed" and my desire to be an active consumer advocate became a reality. Response was good to the release of my 32-page carpet buying brochure.

  • In 2000 I started my first website Abccarpets.com. I then wrote "The Quick and Easy Guide to Carpet Shopping" and released both books to Amazon.com for distribution.

  • In 2002 I wrote a book for landlords called "Landlord Floors-Carpet and Vinyl management for rentals." and launched my second website LandlordFloors.com. I began development of The CFM Solution, a strategic way for landlords to reduce their flooring replacement costs. The Landlord Flooring Management Guide was completed and offered as a key resource for rental property owners and property managers.

  • In 2003 I launched HowToBuyCarpet.com and I began offering a free service called "Ask the Carpet Expert" where homeowners could email me their carpet questions. Since then, hundreds of common carpets buying questions & answers have been posted on my websites for my readers to freely access.

  • In 2006 I closed my flooring installation business to work full time as a consumer advocate. I wrote The Complete Carpet Buying Guide and now offer it as an instant download.

  • In 2008 Because so many of my readers wanted to know who I recommend they buy from, I decided to build a very special list of locally owned carpet dealers that I would feel confident referring to my readers.

Now in 2013 I have more than 350 locally-owned dealers listed in my Preferred Carpet Dealer Directory and growing. I receive lots of emails from happy customers who have been able to choose wisely, save money and get a fair and square deal on new carpet.

 It doesn't get any better than that!
