Questions to Ask a Carpet Installer

Having carpet installed doesn't have to be a difficult process, but before you call a contractor, it's best to keep some key questions in mind.

  • What kind of carpet should I buy?
    Carpet fibers are not all alike. Wool carpeting is valued for its durability and aesthetic qualities, but it is also quite expensive and can deteriorate if exposed to strong sunlight. Nylon, the most popular type of fiber, is considerably cheaper and can replicate many of the qualities associated with wool, but it is prone to staining. Also, you need to consider that high-traffic areas of your house, such as hallways, will probably require more durable carpeting than other places. The use of runner rugs may help to reduce wear and tear on your carpet or floor. In certain places you may be tempted to opt for hard tiles, such as wood, stone, or ceramic, but with these you should be careful. Small children are more likely to be injured on wood or ceramic flooring than on relatively soft carpet.

  • Should I hire an installer or do the job myself?
    Certainly, you can save money if you install carpet yourself, but there are a few reasons why this may not be a good idea. An improperly installed carpet may pose safety hazards due to unevenness, which can cause people to trip. Also, if you do it yourself, you are liable for all damages if the job goes awry, while a professional installer should be insured (but you should definitely check to make sure). A professional can also advise you on the correct types of rugs, tiles, and other floor materials to use in various spots.

  • Is the installation under warranty?
    Carpet installation is usually covered by a one-year warranty. Beware of an installer who refuses to offer a warranty.

    Before a wholesaler or retailers sells you carpet, there are steps they take. First, they come to your home or office to measure the area. If you order too little material, the job can't be completed. They will insist on the professional measurement. Next, they need to discuss how the room is used. If the room sees a lot of foot traffic, the flooring needs durability to withstand the amount of traffic it sees. In entry ways and mudrooms ceramic tile or wood laminate are popular choices.

    Prices and final quotes depend on your choices. Thicker piles, like shag, tend to cost more and can be difficult to clean. Berber is easy to maintain. Find colors that match your current d├ęcor. If you are going for a whole new interior design, complementary throw rugs help customize a design.

    Shop for bold colors and check out the different piles in the store. Darker colors can hide dirt and stains, but lint and hairs are apparent. Add throw rugs and runners to add contrast or cover areas nearest the entryway where muddy boots and shoes are placed.

    The old flooring must be removed. This means pulling out old pads, staples, and tack strips. Most companies charge extra if the contractor has to do this part first. The same additional fees are charged if the company has to move the furniture out of the room. You can save money by taking care of these steps before the contractor arrives.

    Padding is installed first. Carpeting goes over the padding. At the end, the worker cleans the entire area. Do not sign the work order until you are completely satisfied.

    Shop for ceramic tile and carpeting at retailers that offer installation. Find wood laminate and runners that complement your overall design, while adding protection to high traffic areas.
