Four facts about carpet installation

Four facts about carpet installation

On the day your carpet is installed, it's 'out with the old, in with the new,' which is always exciting. Shortly after installers arrive, you'll walk onto a comfy new floor and admire how good your 'new' home space looks.

A smooth installation day is effortless

We take care of all the basics, like accurately measuring the space and determining how to minimize waste. A work schedule and all details are discussed beforehand. You must remove all small items, clear a path to the work area, and have a workspace ready for installers.

The subfloor may need to be repaired

After removing your old flooring, the subfloor is cleaned, cracks and minor imperfections are repaired, and the surface is leveled, if necessary. However, the carpet installation team may find more extensive damage, and additional time will be needed to complete the job.

Experience and special tools are needed

This flooring installation is not a DIY project since wall-to-wall stretching must be done precisely so the carpeting does not ripple or bunch up. Instead, installers bring a power stretcher and a knee knicker, which helps them get a tight fit in corners, stairs, and closets. 

Underlayment is essential

Underlayment, or padding, is a must-have since it keeps the carpet from rubbing against the subfloor and quickly becoming worn. While underlayment is best known for providing underfoot cushioning, it also muffles sounds, stops drafts, and provides thermal insulation.
