Carpet Flooring Installation

Bold, Alluring Options from William French Home Improvements

Other than seeing and enjoying the final result, one of the most exciting parts of replacing carpet is choosing the color and style of carpet you like best. There are many different fibers, thicknesses, styles, colors, and designs, and like all home improvement materials, the cost of carpeting varies. Our team of carpet flooring specialists can help you sift through all the options and find the best choice for your family and your budget, whether you are looking to renovate your home or add on a brand new room.

Benefits of Carpeting

If you’re considering new flooring for your home, carpet may be a wise choice. Whether you want a new type of flooring in certain rooms of your home or it’s time to replace worn, stained carpet, knowing the pros and cons can help in your decision process.

The decision to carpet a room instead of going with hardwood, engineered wood, or another type of flooring, takes a lot of consideration. You have to think mainly about what the space is used for and who is using it. Also, you have to look at your total home renovation costs to determine your budget for flooring.

Carpeting offers these benefits:

  • Comfort
  • Noise reduction
  • Warmth
  • Variety of types (nylon, polyester, wool, etc.)
  • Variety of pile types (cut pile, loop pile)
  • Variety of colors and designs

Consider alternatives to carpet in areas that are:

  • Very high traffic
  • Wet (bathrooms, kitchens, entryways)
  • Where pets sleep and play

Consider how to care for your carpet to extend its life:

  • Vacuum regularly (based on the traffic and use of the room/hallway)
  • Spot clean as needed
  • Professional deep cleaning as needed or annually

What Are the Steps for Installing Carpet?

Installing new carpet typically involves several steps, and while most of these steps are best left to professionals, you will need to prepare your home for carpet installation. Here’s a general overview of the process:

  • Preparation: Clear the room of all rugs and furniture. If you cannot do this yourself, we can handle it for you.
  • Thoroughly Clean the Subfloor: Once old carpet is removed, the underlying surface should be cleaned of all dust, dirt, and debris.
  • Measuring and Cutting: Measure the room, acclimate the carpet, and cut it to fit.
  • Tack Strip Installation: Install tack strips along the room’s perimeter.
  • Padding Installation: Lay out and secure the carpet padding.
  • Carpet Installation: Stretch and trim the carpet, ensuring a snug and sure fit.
  • Seaming (if necessary): Seam together sections of carpet.
  • Finishing Touches: Press edges into tack strips, trim excess padding, and clean up.
