Carpet installation in a Rockwall, TX home

How is carpet installed?

Carpeting is often installed in bedrooms as well as family, dining, and living rooms. Stretch in carpet installation is the most popular installation method. It is quick and efficient, and it makes it easy to remove the flooring when it becomes worn. CW Floors & Lighting provides a team of experienced and qualified installers who can install any type of carpeting in your home. We have two spacious showrooms in south-central Texas. One is located in San Antonio and the other is in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in the city of Rockwall.

A job for the pros

Specialized equipment, knowledge, and skills are needed for carpet installation. A good installer must be able to work with patterned carpets, seamlessly join carpet to flooring in adjoining rooms, and line up any multi-color carpet. Carpet must be stretched properly so it doesn't buckle or ripple in future years. The installers use a carpet stretcher to pull the carpeting across the floor. Not only will the carpet be smooth when the installers finish the job, but it will also meet the walls snugly and edges will be hidden. Seams between sections of carpeting will not be seen.


Padding, or underlay, is placed under carpet to make it more comfortable to walk on, dampen noise, and provide insulation against heat and moisture. It?s important to select the right padding. If the wrong type is installed, the carpet?s lifespan is shortened. This spongy material that acts as a cushion keeps the carpet backing from wearing against the floor. It also absorbs the impact of furniture and footsteps. Rebond padding, made of foam scraps from other industries, is popular. For many homeowners, the best pad is a 7/16-inch thick, 8-pound rebond pad.
