Can I get a Price Over the Phone? - Capell Flooring

Can I Get A Price Over the Phone?

Matt Capell here again.  Today we continue with the topic of
Common Costly Misconceptions About Flooring

By knowing about these, you can help insure that you'll invest in the best flooring for your taste and lifestyle.  And that you'll get years of enjoyment from floors you love, rather than have to live with a decision you'll regret. 

Misconception — Any honest floor dealer should be able to give you accurate prices over the phone

No.  Here’s why. 

There are four items that must be reviewed before a dealer can give you an accurate price quote:

1.  Kind of flooring. 
2.  Size of the rooms.
3.  The shape of the rooms.
4.  Any “special needs” that can affect the installation.

Any dealer who does not review these four items is basically guessing at the price.
At Capell Flooring and Interiors, we review all four items before giving you our written, guaranteed, “No Surprises” price quote.

This means that the price we quote is the price you get.  Period.  If we make a mistake and underprice something, WE pay for it, not you. 

If you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a free Design Audit, please call us at 208-288-0151.

One of the best places to find anything you need to know

Did you know that the world’s largest search engine – Google – actually owns the second largest search engine? While you might not think of it this way, YouTube is actually the second largest search engine. It's also a great (and often overlooked) resource to learn, discover and improve upon skills you already have.

Keeping with our theme of 'Reliable news for healthy living, saving money, and having fun,' we provide some useful resources below. But first, know that we have no affiliation with the YouTube channels provided. These individuals simply offer great tips.

On Clean My Space, Melissa Maker focuses on helping you love your space even more! On her channel, she shows you how to create the ideal environment through decluttering, cleaning better and doing more in the least amount of time. You may find ideas and tips that you've not seen anywhere else in the areas of DeclutteringFolding, and Kitchen Cleaning.

There are many Great Home Ideas on a channel of the same name from Australia. It provides videos on DIY, food, garden, lifestyle, how-tos, pet, and home makeover ideas and hacks.

If you enjoy arts and crafts, search for any media that you choose – paint, yarn, clay, etc. – and you will find tons of videos with tips and techniques.

Similarly, for help with tech tips on new phones, computers, applications, software, social media platforms and more, you can find great information when you search on YouTube.

Whatever topic, skill, language, or business lessons that you want to learn, you can find a video to help. Plus, there are many fun options too. 

And, if you've ever wondered who the most popular YouTube stars are, a quick search of Google will help.

Why you may or may not want to choose carpeting for your home

Searching for new flooring among all the available options can be daunting. After all, you want to be sure you make the right choice for your preferences and decor within your budget.

Common types of floor coverings are carpet, hardwood, and tile, and each option has advantages and disadvantages. For now, let’s focus on carpeting.


Cost-effective: When compared to other available options, carpeting can be a cost-effective choice. Good quality carpet can be over 50% less expensive than hardwood flooring.

Aesthetics: The variety of colors and designs allow you to match the d├ęcor in your home more easily.

Insulation: Carpeting is insulation and a sound absorber that can be boosted by the installation of a thick under pad or by choosing a carpet with denser fiber styles.


Maintenance: Carpets require a high level of maintenance to keep them looking clean and fresh. You need to vacuum regularly, and it's recommended to have them deep cleaned at least once every year.

Damage and Stains: Over other available flooring options, carpet is more susceptible to damage and stains. In extreme moisture conditions, they are also prone to mildew, which can be harmful to people.

If you, or someone you know, are considering new flooring options, come on into the store. We will provide you with expert advice to help you narrow down your options so that you can make the right choice for your home and budget.

Creating a Survival Kit

How well are you prepared for an emergency? There are some things that it can be very helpful to have on hand in case of an emergency. Here is a list to get you started:
  • First-aid kit – Include supplies like iodine, gauze pads, medical tape, band aids, alcohol wipes, antibiotic ointment, scissors, scalpel or knife, aspirin, sunscreen, bug repellent, emergency medicines like epi pens and inhalers, matches, safety pins, flint, lighter, and scraper ... all in a waterproof container.
  • Emergency food – Non-perishable foods like salt-free crackers, protein bars, dried fruits, and nuts, plus lots of bottled water, can be a literal life-saver in an emergency. In survival situations like camping and hiking, and in the case of an emergency at home, keep foods that don't require refrigeration and have quick preparation times like whole grain cereals, rice, beans, peanut butter, canned meats and other foods.
  • Cooking supplies – cup, can opener, and heat resistant pan.
  • LifeStraw or another powerful water filtration device that will allow you to clean dirty water to make it drinkable.
  • Tools – A good survival knife is a strong, sturdy and multipurpose that can be used to help cut food, clear paths, build shelter, or start a fire. Depending on your needs, it may make sense to include basic tools like a wrench, hammer, crowbar, or pliers.  
  • Wilderness gear – Map, compass, tarp, and flares.
  • Electronics – A hand-cranked radio and a flashlight are great for when you don’t have power. It’s also a good idea to include some spare batteries and device chargers (for times when electricity is available).
  • Toiletries – Soap, razor, toothbrush, and toothpaste. Don’t underestimate the importance of hygiene in an emergency situation.
  • Notebook and pencil to record any important details and emergency plans.
  • Extra clothes that are suitable to the climate you are or will be in.

Keep your survival kit together in a dry,  easily accessible location, so if an emergency happens, you know exactly where to find it.
