Carpet Installation Done Right
There’s much more to professional carpet installation than owning a staple gun, and knowing what’s involved will help ensure your carpet installation is done right. Poor installation can result in an uneven appearance, and it can also cost you in wasted square footage. It takes years to develop the skills needed to be a top-quality carpet installer, which is why all of the installers for Sloane’s Carpet Secret have a minimum of 20 years’ experience. Also, don’t be afraid to ask about your installer’s qualifications. It’s better to ask before it’s too late!
No matter how good you are at math, it pays to have a professional carpet installer measure your space before finalizing your carpet order. An experienced installer knows how to deal with irregular-shaped spaces and stairs and will eliminate the pain involved in having ordered the wrong amount.
Powerstretching tools and techniques are used by professional installers to create the right tension when laying carpet to ensure a long-term, super-smooth look. When stretched appropriately, you won’t have those pesky wrinkles show up after two or three years and you won’t have to move all your furniture to stretch it again.
Solids vs. Patterns
It’s important to know that one-size does not fit all when it comes to carpet installation. Patterns require different installation techniques than solids and less experienced installers often fail to match seams correctly. Purchasing patterned carpet may also require you to buy more square-footage so the design can be perfectly aligned.
