Step 1: Choose Your Carpet

There are countless different styles, patterns and textures available when it comes to carpet. Find one that works best for you and your home depending on where the carpet is being located. 

Step 2: Remove Old Carpet

If you don’t have carpet already then you can just skip this step. But likelihood is you are looking to replace your old carpet with one that's clean and new. To do that, you must first pull up your old carpet by cutting it out carefully. This can be difficult to do which is why we recommend you hire a professional to do so for you. 

Step 3: Apply The Pad

Before you can begin placing your carpet you must first lay the pad. To prep for the pad, clean your floor making sure to get any dirt, pet hair, or dust. This will make the carpet feel much nicer in the long run.

Step 4: Carpet Installation

Once the pad is attached with tackless strips the carpet can be installed. Make sure the carpet is slightly bigger than the area it's meant to cover so you can leave room for overlay. Once it is laid, it's time to trim the edges of the carpet. This can be difficult to cut the carpet properly. Our team of professionals can do the job right, minimizing wasted or damaged carpet. 

Step 5: Attaching the Carpet

Finally, the carpet is stretched using a device called a knee kicker and carpet spreader. Tackless strips are applied to keep the carpet in place. Then all thats left to do is make any last minute cuts and tucks and the carpet is good to go.
