Not unlike siding sales and installations, carpet sales andinstallations have been going strong for more than 50 years. The mainrequirement for this type of home improvement business startup is tohave the ability to properly install carpeting or have access toqualified installers. To be competitive in this industry and keep youroverheads low, your best bet may be to stay away from a traditionalcarpet and flooring showroom and stick to a mobile showroom via yourinstallation van. The business is very inexpensive to set in motion,and you can expect to make a comfortable living once you’ve establisheda client base and referral network.
Your customers will be people looking to replace old carpet or install new carpet.
