GLORIA I.

The job was completed in two days, Monday and Thursday. I requested the two days between to be able to have time to pack and move all items not furniture from one level to another. Michael Ignoffo, the owner, was very accommodating. He came out to measure and within 3 days sent me a quote. In less than a month the job was completed. Two men came (it was the same two both days) to do the job and they were very respectful and courteous asking me to be sure they put the furniture back in the right position.

Description of Work
Moved furniture, including a console piano. Removed and hauled away the old carpet and pad. Installed new pad and carpeting throughout split level house on three levels and also two flights of stairs, approximately 1275 square feet.

Everything went very well from the assistance in choosing the right carpeting for the stairs to the installation of the carpeting. We were kept up to date on when it would be installed and the crew who did the installation were very professional and courteous and when the job was completed everything was cleaned up very well. We would definitely do business with Carpet Central in the future.

Mike first came to provide us with a quote. He was on time, easy going and a really nice guy. We were renovating at the time and told him that it'd be about 3 months away till we install the carpet. He said no problem and was able to give me a quote the next day. Mike was always responsive through email and Luba from their store was just the nicest lady you will meet. We went there a few times to look at the carpet and was able to take samples home to compare. After 3 months when it was ready to install, Mike was able to fit me within his schedule right away and they did an awesome job. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again (probably soon as I will need to fix up the condo that I currently live in for rent). Don't hesitate, call them or email them.

A perfect experience. We wanted to have hardwood floors throughout our main floor, stairs and second floor hallway. We chose Mike based on his great ratings and we were not disappointed. He came out quickly to give us a quote and offer solutions. We scheduled work within a few weeks and the results are even better than we hoped for. And the price was very reasonable considering the dramatic difference the new floors have made in our home. We'll be calling Mike again as soon as we're ready to tackle our next flooring project.

Mike L.

The wood flooring and carpeting were all that I anticipated and more. Both groups of installers were very professional, doing their work efficiently and expertly. The wood floor in the main room makes the area look so much more appealing. The carpeting in the bedrooms really complements the wood floor- and feels so plush under foot. I also really cannot say enough about the installers helping me move my furniture all over the place. The real "litmus test" was having my fiancé evaluate the work. She also gave it rave reviews!

Mike was great- We have beautiful new carpet. Only wish we could have afforded hardwood... We had numerous flooring people out- Glad we chose Carpet Central. Very nice 2-day installation job. The pad was a quality, 8 lb padding and we appreciated that all was included- Furniture moving and carpet/pad removal. Only took 2 days. Very happy with their work and would use their services again.

Description of Work
Replaced all carpet in house- Total of 8 rooms on 1st and 2nd floor, plus stairs and upstairs hallway.

From start to finish this company was a pleasure to work with. Luba, the salesperson, Mike the owner and the installers were are helpful and professional. The store is fairly small, but the products are varied, both in type/style and pricing. Luba was very helpful by showing me a number of options based on my description of what I wanted. Once we decided on a carpet, Mike came out to measure very quickly. The carpet the was installed by two very nice and helpful installers. They didn't hesitate to show me options for installing against a curved tile floor. And the seam in imperceptible. Overall, I could not have been more pleased with the entire process.

I obtained quotes from 3 companies on Angie?s list. I chose Carpet Central based on the service provided. The showroom has a vast selection of carpet. They were very knowledgeable and explained to me about the different carpet materials available. I was able to take a few samples home and Mike came a few days later to measure and provide a quote. I ordered the carpet and it was installed 8 days later. The installers arrived at the planned time and did a nice job of cleaning up when done. I had a few questions for Mike after the install and he was very prompt at addressing my questions. The carpet looks great!!! I would use Carpet Central again.

Recently bought a home and needed to re-do all floors on first level. Choose finsh in place wood for all except sunken family room, which we wanted to carpet. Looked at the big box stores and large flooring retailers, and saw a lot of forgettable carpeting. Found Carpet Central on Angies list, and were very pleased with the selection and service. They have a relatively small showroom in HIghliagn park, but have very interesting colors, patterns, and material choices. We were able to take home a lot of boards without a lot of fuss, and found a carpet that we really were not looking for, but was perfect in our room. MIke came out and measured, he was resonable on proicing (and gave us credits for removing the old carpet ourselves and moving the furniture), and his installers were detail oriented and did a clean job all around. Excellent product choice and service - thanks Mike!

The estimator and estimate was extremely professional. While we didn't use this provider, it was nothing against the company. I would recommend them based on the estimation process.

We are new to the Chicago area so we relied completely on Angie's List recommendations for contractors to work on our home. Our experience with Mike Ignoffo and his crew at Carpet Central could not have gone better. Both the hardwood and carpeting crews were fast, efficient, and very professional. We also appreciated the assistance provided by Luba in the showroom who helped us make our carpet and stain color selections. Mike was very quick with the quote, kept us updated on the scheduled work, and was easy to reach whenever we had questions. We are very pleased with the results and would highly recommend this company to anyone needing carpeting or hardwood in the north shore area.

I called three companies and Carpet Central was by far the most professional. Michael came with samples and was apologetic about being 5 minutes late. I received an e-mail estimate within hours. I had to beg the other two guys to give me a written estimate and one suggested I drive to an inconvienent location to view samples. The installation date was set and the guys showed up and did a beautiful job. They even had enough trim to do a small extra project at no charge. I highly recommend Carpet Central.

The service was fine. He even let me take a look at stuff after business hours as I live kind of far away from their facility. He really worked with me as it took a long time to find what I wanted. Everyone comments on the work and how nice it looks. They are easy to work with. The selection was limited so that was the only issue but other than that they did a great job.

Description of Work
They did laminate flooring installation. They installed amount of carpet as well. They had to level the floor as well because of foundation issues.

DEBORAH C.

We found Carpet Central on Angie's list and based on the excellent reviews and nearby location, decided to go to their showroom to select new carpeting for my daughter's bedroom. My daughter, who recently graduated from college and is now working full-time, had no clear idea what she wanted. The salesperson in the showroom was very patient and showed us several types of styles. We decided on plush in a very neutral color. Even within that category, we were shown several different types of plush with various price points. Once we decided on the carpet we liked, we were given the color sample card to take home so we could view the colors in the room and make our final color selection. I emailed the owner, Mike, to confirm our selection and get a final price quote. He was very responsive and once we approved the estimate, told us that we would have to wait a week or two for the carpet to come in as it was being ordered from California. It ended up coming in sooner than expected and we were able to set up installation on the Friday after Thanksgiving, which was perfect for us as we didn't have to be at work that day. The installers showed up on time and did an excellent job. They moved out the furniture and then put everything back when they were done. They even went above and beyond, moving a computer hutch that we no longer wanted in the room to our garage. They cleaned up after themselves, vacuuming the new carpet and sweeping the hardwood floors in the hallway and also the stairs. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them for future flooring projects.

Carpet Central & Hardwood Flooring was very responsive, gave us the best estimate, the best price for the work done, and I felt confident that he was going to do an installation that would coincide with the manufactures specifications and warranties. He was really nice, efficient, and for follow up he had samples sent out to us. The guy is great.

We had a great experience with Carpet Central and Hardwood Flooring. My phone calls and emails were always answered or messages returned within 24 hours. The crew was EARLY which never happens and finished the job before the expected date. They treated our home like it was their own, and even took pictures of each room so that when they moved the furniture back in they could place it exactly where we had it before. We would definitely recommend Carpet Central and would use them again in the future if we need anything done.

Description of Work
We had the carpet ripped up and the hardwood floors refinished on the entire first floor of our house.

Mike was able to schedule our job at the time we needed, which was important to us. Once we saw how great the floors looked upstairs we asked him to come back and do the downstairs. Mike was easy to communicate with by phone and email.

Description of Work
We hired Carpet Central and Hardwood Flooring to re-finish the parquet floors in the home we recently purchased. We had six rooms refinished, a set of stairs, and a hallway. Some of the floors required a little repair since carpet had been installed on top of it.
