Updated: Oct 24, 2019

A proper, professional installation is crucial to the life and performance of your carpet. Because of this, it is important to know what to expect during your carpet installation.

What to expect:

We'll take care of the basics. We will send out an estimator to measure your rooms and determine how to minimize waste to maximize your carpet. we will also suggest a local professional installer who is familiar with your carpet and has the necessary experience to install it in your home.  It is important to speak with the installer prior to the installation to determine exactly what they will be responsible for and to set a schedule for the work. The installation team will need to use your electricity to power their tools as well as an area to work.

Some installers will move smaller furniture as part of their installation; however, you will still need to move many times (especially breakable) before the installer arrives. If you have any larger items, oversized furniture or appliances you may need to arrange to have this moved by a third party, but check with your installer first, they can tell you just what to expect. Your overall goal is to move any items that could get broken while making your installer’s job as easy as possible. This will speed up the installation process.

Before the work begins, you can choose if your installer will be responsible for removing and disposing of your old carpet. They will remove any moulding or trim in the room and prep the subfloor for installation.  Moulding and trim can be fragile and despite their best efforts, your installation team may break a few pieces. If this happens, it is typically your responsibility to replace them.  At some point, your installer may need to remove your doors to complete the installation. If the new carpet is thicker, your doors will have to be trimmed before they can be reinstalled. Most carpet installers do not perform carpentry work so it will be your responsibility to either trim them yourself or hire a professional to reinstall them.
