Most people think carpet installation is one of the easiest things to do. Measure the area where you want the carpet, lay down some padding, and then lay down the carpet. If you cannot use a staple gun to secure the carpet to the padding and wood underneath, then you have to use a certain type of adhesive or nail pad where the pad sticks to the material underneath and then you staple the carpet to the pad. This doesn’t sound so hard.
And it is not hard – if you have a perfectly square or rectangle room and people to help you move everything out of the room, and then back into the room. When you add stairs, odd shapes, different corners, or rounded anything, it becomes infinitely harder. If you have children, pets, a job, or something else that will distract you from your task, it is also difficult. This is when it is time to hire a carpet installer for your home.
Luckily, most carpet stores offer discounts on installation and some even offer free installation. Since you have to buy your carpet anyways, you should use one of these stores where installation is included or discounted for people who buy carpet there. Then you save on the installation while still making sure you get quality carpet and padding because you are making the decisions. Professional carpet installers have all the right tools, and the experience, to do the job quickly and efficiently.
When you have other things to do, and when the room is more complicated than a square or rectangle, it is time to hire a carpet installer for your home.
