Tired of having stains come back after you’ve cleaned them?  This carpet is made in such a way as to prevent that from ever happening again.  The manufacturer, who has used this technology for some time in commercial situations like assisted living facilities, has made a water tight backing for this carpet collection.

Porch.com (upcoming review announcement)

Share

Hello Everyone!  I thought I’d check in and let you know that in the next couple weeks I will be reviewing the new start-up website: Porch.com.



Why?  I received this not too long ago…

Katlin of Let’s Talk About Floors,

It is because of this (me being an influential blogger) that I would like to offer you an exclusive sneak peak of Porch, a new Internet start-up, that is creating a home improvement marketplace and social network. We connect homeowners, renters and design enthusiasts with over 1.4 million professionals. With $6.25M in funding under our belt and big guys from Facebook behind us, we are gearing up to launch in September. With our launch date fast approaching, we are starting to seek out key influencers in the blogger community to share early access of Porch, in hopes that you will use the site and give us any feedback you might have. 

Are you interested in trying out Porch? Let me know, I would love to give you early access to the site! 

Take care,
Lauren K.
Join us on the Porch!

So, it was very cool to get that.  I’m glad that so many people enjoy my blog, but when I received that I went ‘Really? You think I’m influential? Cool!’

But that isn’t the only reason, it also sounds like a potentially helpful website for those who are looking to work on remodeling projects of all sizes.  Per their ‘About Us’ page, Porch.com is “where neighbors and friends meet to share home professionals and projects they love.”  Sounds kinda like a social Angie’s List, which makes a lot of sense to me.  Paying for a membership to write and share reviews never computed with my brain.

Until I’m ready to post the review, have fun on their Pinterest Page!

As always, if there are any questions give me a shout at Katlin@nullMercerCarpetOne.com!

Blog Spotlight: Kathy’s Remodeling Blog

Share
Tweet

I recently stumbled upon this gem.  What really caught my eye is Kathy’s seemed frustration (that I share) with the cheep contractors and other ‘so-called professionals’ that we run into on a regular basis.  And she pulled together a helpful ‘quiz’ to help showcase the best choice.

So how do  you decide what to do? Ask yourself a few questions:


1. Is saving money the most important thing in life without exception?

If yes, choose Contractor Cheapo
If no, keep asking questions


2. Is having a high-quality project the most important thing in life without exception?

If yes, choose Contractor Artisan
If no, keep asking questions

3.  Is complaining about the faults of contractors a favorite pastime?

If yes, choose Contractor Cheapo
If no, keep asking questions

4. Is having a warm feeling from having the most considerate, thoughtful contractor important?

If yes, choose Contractor Artisan
If no, keep asking questions

Bottom line…”


This might be funny to watch, but do you want these guys working on your home?
I’d love to know your thoughts on this.  Do you have any stories you can share about your experience with Quality, Artisan work vs. Cost Focused work?

As always, if there is ever anything I can help with, give me a shout!

Warm Wishes,

We’re Expanding and Need Your Help

Share

I’ve got great news!  We have big plans for 2012 and need additional personnel to help us achieve those dreams!  We’re looking to build upon current locations and expand to new ones.


We’re looking to fill all positions including sales, management, and administrative.  We’re looking for the right mix of people with enthusiasm, integrity, and creativity who would like to become apart of a flourishing team.  So if you could help spread the word (or apply yourself), that would be fantastic.


Now, for a bit of background.  The available positions are for multiple locations throughout central Maryland including Carroll, Howard, and Baltimore Counties.  We are a small, family business that values drive, honesty, imagination, and a desire to help others.  Our employees and clients come first, because without either of them we wouldn’t be here much less double the 53 years we’ve been in business so far.


Please send all resumes and cover letters to ExpansionProject2012@nullgmail.com.

I don’t mean to freak you out or anything, but we have ONLY 8 DAYS TILL THANKSGIVING!  Halloween is always a good heads up that the Holiday Season is coming, but even then you’re relaxed thinking that you have plenty of time to get everything done (at least I know that I’m that way).  But Thanksgiving, now that’s the real start of the Holiday bustle with December only 6 days away!



Now, with that warning out of the way, here are some gift ideas that might help you check off the person (or people) on your list that is…
  • a first time home owner
  • in the midst of a remodeling project
  • about to start a remodeling project
  • recently purchased in a new home
Or something similar.



Gift Idea #1: Welcome a Cure walk off mats
  • charitable (100% of the proceeds goes to Breast Cancer Research)
  • simple (we have a wide array in stock now)
  • functional (great for indoors, outdoors, kitchens, bathrooms, entries, etc)
  • cheery (we have beautiful, cheerful designs available)


Gift Idea #2: Floor Care Gift Basket
  • highly customizable
  • simple
  • functional
  • unique (who else would think of a gift like this?)


Gift Idea #3: Area Rug/Runner
  • customizable (you can help design their rug!)
  • beautiful
  • functional
  • long lasting (a quality rug is like buying a piece of art they can use for many years to come)


Gift Idea #4: Gift Card

  • flexible (the recipient can decide on exactly how they use their gift)


Does this help?  If there are any questions, please email me at Katlin@nullMercerCarpetOne.com.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Have Fun,

Katlin Farrell
