March 2 Marks 181 Years Since Texas Declared Independence 

tile installation - Houston, Texas At Carpet Giant in Houston, TX, we like remembering our history. We also like the whole idea of independence and freedom. For us, being able to own your own home is one of the most significant acts of freedom and independence any person can make these days. We read recently about an historic act that will be marked in a few days. Here is the first part of this story as told in a local editorial:

“The other states just don’t get it. But 181 years ago, a group of men gathered in a Texas town called Washington-on-the-Brazos to adopt a Declaration of Independence. Modeled on the United States Declaration, the document chides the Mexican military dictatorship under Gen. Santa Anna.”

The story continues with the declaration itself, which is interesting reading if you have not read it in the past. We encourage all residents to take a look at it, and to pass it along, especially to younger people who may not have a clue about this bit of state history.

As for homeowners having freedom and independence, we stick by that. When you own your home, you can do things that renters can only dream of. One thing you can do is pick out your own flooring to suit your own desires. As a leading flooring store in this area, we would caution that when you buy new flooring, you should also arrange for professional flooring installation services. Keep in mind that a poorly installed flooring system can cause homeowners a lot of trouble that they do not need.

When customers come to our showroom in Houston to buy quality flooring, we offer them the best flooring installation services in Houston. We do this because we know that improper installation can cause their new flooring product warranty to be voided if something happens to that flooring. Some homeowners in our area have elected to have their new flooring installed by third-party crews, or people they know, who say they can install flooring, often for less money. However this usually ends up causing one problem after another, and the loss of their warranty protection on top of that.

When buying new flooring of any kind, keep in mind that all major flooring manufacturers have certain criteria for installing their flooring. If you have questions about this, come by the Carpet Giant showroom and we will be happy to tell you more about our flooring installation services and how manufacturer's flooring warranties work.
