The carpet company is charging so much per yard for the carpet, and labor included. A 10% waste factor is added on. That means I'm paying 10% more for the labor, right? Is that normal? I'm told by the company, 'that's how everyone does it.'
Similarly with a small tile job they will also do. The job measures out to almost exactly 2 boxes of tile. I have to pay for a third box of tile because of waste. Understandable. But the company also wants to charge labor for the whole box of tile.
I'm about to back out of this deal.
