Question Does anyone install new carpet anymore?

The old orange carpet in my PT needs to go. I'm thinking the living room forward should be carpet and the kitchen all the way back into the bedroom can be hardwood. I think to do the hardwood up front (steps and all) would be a larger job than I want tackle, but seems more easily doable with carpet. I've seen soooo many half-baked wood flooring jobs in RVs over the past year and I just refuse to do something like that.

Actually, I have! And I'm not looking for someone to do the installation for me, I just never see anyone do anything but wood/laminate anymore.

I personally like carpet in the front area and bedroom. Kitchen and bath other materials.

Mine is a good example of a half baked job. My choice of engineered flooring did not hold up well in the 120 degree outside, 130 degree inside, 5% humidity conditions. Hopefully, the wood will swell back up once in "normal" conditions. Just make sure regional weather is considered before spending the money.

Alcoholic implications, poor syntax, punctuation and grammar don't make good sales tools, just say'n...
