Top Carpet Laying & Installation related questions

No, you don’t. One of the reasons people hire someone to install their carpets is because of their tools. Compared to DIY projects, carpet installers already have what they need. This means you don’t need to spend over your budget to get the correct tools required for the project. 

It is best to have a carpet installer measure and inspect your home. You can quickly put up a task and indicate what needs to be done. However, measurements are best done by the installer in person. This ensures that the correct numbers are taken for when the carpet needs to be cut and made for you. 

It is not required for all homes, but there are many advantages to having an underlay installed along with your carpet. The underlay and carpet work together to create better flooring for your home. It provides you with better comfort and a longer lifespan for your carpet.

You should always pick a carpet installer with experience. This assures you that the Tasker you hire is trained and equipped with the knowledge needed for carpet installation. A Tasker’s experience is easy to see on our platform as you browse through their profiles.

Not necessarily. Some carpet installers may offer you choices for your carpet. It is also best to consult with an installer before buying a carpet. They make sure that you buy the correct amount of carpet to avoid going over or under in measurements. 

It takes about a day at maximum to install your carpet. Some will take as short as two to four hours. On the other hand, installing a carpet in an odd-shaped room will take longer since specific cutting may be required during the installation process.

What do carpet laying and installation services include?

Adding in a carpet to your home can be that final touch when designing your interiors. However, installing a carpet is no easy chore. The best carpet installers near you can measure, cut, and lay your carpet correctly. No need to go through all the hassle of doing it yourself! Here’s what you can expect when booking carpet installations near you: 

Preparing for carpet installation

Before getting your new carpet installed, there are a lot of preparations that need to be done by local carpet installers. First, the floor space is measured. This makes sure that you’ll only purchase the right amount of carpet and that it is cut accurately.

Some Taskers may even offer same-day carpet installation near you. Before rolling out the carpet, they make sure that there are no loose nails and wooden boards. Some installers also help move aside furniture you had assembled to keep everything clear and ready for carpet laying.

Glue-down carpet installation

The glue-down method is the most common method among installers. Here, the carpet is glued directly to the floor. This is ideal for floors that cover larger areas. That is why it is used for commercial carpet installation. It provides solid support, especially for buildings that wish to have carpeted ramps. It is certain to not budge, even with things rolling over the surface daily. 

The best carpet installers make sure that your floors are smooth. This ensures fewer mistakes during carpet laying. When not done correctly, the areas not glued down properly wear quickly. That’s why it’s best to leave it to an experienced Tasker. Once rolled out and secured, you can always have your carpets cleaned and stains removed to ensure a fresh, brand new look.

Stretch-in carpet installation

Most homeowners may opt for a stretch-in carpet. Here, strips of wood containing nails are nailed around the edges of the room. Padding is installed in the middle of the room for the carpet to lay over it. The carpet is then attached to the pins on the strips of wood. From there, your carpet installer will stretch it across the room. A plus to this method is the extra padding underneath the carpet. It provides added comfort and extends the lifespan of the carpet itself. 

Adding a carpet underlay

An added service that is offered by many independent carpet installers near you is carpet underlay. This is a thin cushion put under your carpet. It is made of materials like sponge rubber and foam. A carpet underlay provides extra comfort to your flooring. It also provides your room with acoustic and thermal installation. Be sure to ask your carpet installer for the best underlay for your carpet and its installation method.

I've added a new wall to split a large room into 2. Prior to installing the new wall, we cut the carpet/underlay, so as to lay the beams direct onto the timber plate. I now need someone to please cut the edges of the carpet/underlay on either sides of the doors to perfectly line up with the skirting that has been installed on both the external and internal side of that new room. In total just 4 lengths, each 1400mm long. These are all straight lines going from the room corners. towards the doors, then also necessary around the door frame. See attached image for your reference. Supply and install of the smoothedge carpet edge also required.
