Carpet Installations require more than just laying the carpet. The carpet installer first must inspect your floor and correct any imperfections that may show through your carpeting or create uneven wear. The installer must then take exact measurements of the room to insure perfect fit. Then a tackless strip is installed to the floor next to the wall. Your carpet installer will then install a carpet pad that he/she has cut to fit your room. Now your carpeting is laid out and cut to the exact measurements taken earlier. A knee kicker is used to position the carpet, then stretch it to fit evenly. Any excess carpet is now rough cut. A power stretcher is used to stretch the carpet so it can be hooked to the tackless strip. Finally, a wall trimmer is put down to finish the job. For large areas, carpet can be "sewn" together using heat activated plastic tape.
