When it comes to installing a new carpet, preparation is key. This stage can be particularly challenging, but it is essential that you get it right to ensure that your new carpet looks as good as possible. During the preparation stage you should:

  • Clean your subfloor
  • Remove doors
  • Install underlay

While these tips may sound relatively easy, they can be a challenge without the right skills and experience. Fortunately, the team at Joe Walker’s Flooring have years of experience in installing carpets to the highest of standards. Our expert team are more than happy to help with the preparation and installation of your new carpet, ensuring that the final installation looks as good as possible. Having an expert team on hand to help ensures that you do not injure yourself while lifting heavy doors, or while installing tackless strips. Additionally, carpet installation experts will ensure that the subfloor is properly prepared for the installation of your new carpet.

Trimming the Carpet to Size

Again, this is a challenging step because if you cut the carpet too small, you will end up with a patchy looking floor, or wasted carpet! Fortunately, the team at Joe Walker’s Flooring take accurate measurements ensuring that your carpet is cut to the perfect size. By cutting your carpet to fit the room perfectly, you can be sure that the installation will go smoothly, with the carpet sitting perfectly on your floor, creating a beautiful finish.

Securing the Carpet

Properly securing and fitting your carpet requires the right set of tools for the job to ensure that the carpet does not become damaged during the installation process. With years of experience in the industry, we have the best tools for the job, ensuring that every project is completed to the highest of standards. Additionally, this can be a dangerous task, with sharp tools used throughout the process, so we recommend having a professional take care of securing and installing your carpet.
