A high-quality installation is going to keep your flooring, whether it’s a carpet installation or something else, looking great, performing well, and lasting for a long time. Some say the installation is just as, if not more, important than the material itself. Read on to get tips on how to get a quality installation from CW Floors, your source for carpet and flooring in Rockwall, TX.
Preparation is vital
This crucial step will ensure that your installation goes smoothly. Have a good idea of who is responsible for what. Find out if the subfloor gets inspected. What happens if repairs are needed; is that already included in the estimate? Who removes furniture? Who is responsible for disposal? How noisy and dusty will it get; should animals be boarded or windows opened? What can I move furniture back in? When can I walk on it? If painting is to be done, find out if they’d instead you paint before or after the installation and, if it's after, what is the best best way to protect the rug? What should I expect afterward, such as shedding? What’s normal, and what's a manufacturer defect.
Have a professional lay the carpet
We all want to save money, so while DIY might seem tempting, it can cost you more in the long term. First, warranties usually come with installation requirements, and, when they aren't followed, protections can be voided. Second, the professionals do this for a living and, since it is their business, they will pay wholesale for tools. You will pay retail for something that you’ll probably only use once.
You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that there is the expertise to spot potential problems and then handle them if they occur. What is simple to them may be more complicated for you, and you could end up with a rug that’s wrinkled, loose, ill-fitting, and has bumps, rolls, and more.
