New Year, New Laws for California...And Lots of Them

For California residents, the new year will bring in many new laws. In fact, there are over 800 new laws getting ready to hit the books, and they cover a myriad of issues from carrying concealed weapons to consumer protection actions. From where a person can ride a hoverboard in LA to getting new Long Beach carpet installation, there is, at least, something for everyone.

The Los Angeles Times ran a lengthy story on some of the new laws, but not even they could cover them all. With more than 800 new rules coming onto the books, California may top the list of states in terms of how many laws are being enacted in a single year.

In part, the Times story said:

“Californians face new restrictions on carrying guns, protections from warrantless searches of their emails, immunity from city fines for installing artificial turf and higher pay if they earn minimum wage under laws that take effect with the new year.

Many of the 807 bills signed into law touch on broad aspects of California residents’ everyday lives or address major issues like voter participation, and life and death.”

In terms of Long Beach carpet installation, new consumer protection laws will make it harder for scam artists to cheat homeowners. These new rules will apply to many industries where consumer fraud has been a problem, not just with flooring products. Roofers, landscapers, and general contractors will have to provide quality work or face the consequences.

Bixby Plaza Carpets with showrooms in Huntington Beach and Los Alamitos, CA has long known that consumers can be at risk when they hire non-professionals for their Long Beach carpet or other flooring installation needs. It is no secret that many of these non-professionals will talk a good game, often stating that they can install Long Beach carpet at lower rates than those charged by reputable flooring stores. The truth, however, is that while they may be cheaper in terms of cost, the work results are often disappointing. It takes skill and experience to install carpeting in Long Beach homes and businesses, and without the proper training and tools, superior results simply cannot be achieved.

The best course of action for Long Beach carpet installation is to work with the flooring store that sold the carpet. The vast majority of reputable carpet stores will also have access to experienced experts who can install the carpet at a reasonable price, and guarantee satisfaction with the end result.
