Why You Need A Carpet Installation Company

Carpet patching

Installing new Carpet Fitting is an exciting time for any homeowner. Carpets improve the look of the home, the feel of the floor, and reduce foot traffic noise. However, as with any home improvement project, the decision to put down a rug, or the actual decision of who should do it, rarely fills residents with such joy. There are three options: you can install the carpet yourself, use the services of the retailer you purchased the carpet from, or contact an independent installer and purchase the carpet separately. Read on to learn about the (dis)advantages of each option.

Carpet installation for the average homeowner

If you’re a proven handyman, have experience with Carpet Fitting, or just want to keep costs as low as possible, you can certainly lay carpet yourself. But don’t think it’s as simple as rolling out a new rug and hammering it into the strips without ties. There’s a reason most residents choose to hire someone else to do the job. You’ll need to follow precise fitting procedures and learn how to use everything from knee kickers to stretchers.

Downside: extra equipment rental costs and gas for trips to the hardware store, wasted time and poorly installed carpet. If you don’t stretch and secure your carpet properly, very soon you will have to call a professional to re-stretch and secure it.

Most large carpet retailers employ a small army of Carpet Fitting. There’s certainly nothing wrong with taking care of the entire business, from purchase to installation, with one easy stop at the carpet store.
