Get the Best Value for the Price for Carpet Installation

If you’re searching for the best price for carpet installation, you need to call Great Western Flooring Company, the industry leader in beautiful flooring installed professionally, at the best available price.  

There are things you can do to try to save yourself some money with a new carpet installation, such as clearing the room of furniture, removing your old carpeting or even preparing your subfloor.  You may want to talk with the professionals before doing these things, however, as it might be extra work on your part when you could have the heavy lifting done professionally at a very fair and affordable price.  

If you move your furniture out of the room ahead of time, be very careful with lifting of heavy items such as dressers and beds without asking for assistance.  An injury is not worth moving things by yourself.  

Removing Old Carpet

Removing your old carpeting should be done in a particular fashion for ease of removal with the least amount of contaminants exposed into the air.  If you vacuum your old carpeting prior to removal, it will help to cut down on the amount of dust and air contaminants released into the air you breathe.  

If attempting to tear out your old carpeting, following a few simple tips can make it more manageable.  Removing old carpeting is easier if you cut it into strips, or sections that you can handle.  You’ll need a utility knife with a new sharp blade (be careful not to cut yourself!), and then begin to cut the carpet and the pad in manageable sections about four-foot wide, then roll them up for easy removal.  

Great Western Flooring is experienced at removing old carpet and padding and will dispose of your old carpeting following our green policy and recycling all material.  

Preparing Sub-Floor

Preparing your subfloor includes cleaning, removing any lingering staples, and ensuring that it’s level.  This can also be performed by an experienced carpet installation company, ensuring a nice finish with the result that you are looking for.

While it might be tempting to do some things yourself, and there are things that must be prepared ahead of time, consult with a professional carpet installation company to get the best price for carpet installation, including all preparation, leveling and installing.

What to Look for in a Quality Carpet Installation

Unknown-1-150x150

While it may not seem particularly difficult to do, it actually takes the right tools, the right knowledge, and a fair bit of experience to properly install wall-to-wall carpeting. Most homeowners understand this fact and choose to have it done professionally. Still, there are a few things to look for when getting your carpet installed.

Superior padding – Not only is the carpet itself important, the padding installed underneath is just as important. The best carpet padding is specifically designed to enhance the comfort of walking on the carpet as well as providing a moisture barrier to protect the carpet. Good quality padding also adds a degree of insulation against heat transfer and noise.

Proper stretching – If you have ever seen carpet being installed, you will have noted the tech using his knee and a specialized tool – known as a stretcher – to fine tune the installation of a carpet. This activity is something of an art and takes some experience – and physical effort – to do well. Expect to see your installers spending most of their time getting this aspect of the job done properly.

No visible seams – It is not always possible to cover an entire room with a single piece of carpet. Instead, pieces will have to be butted up against each other which creates a seam. Expert carpet installers can do this with ease and ensure that there is no “peaking” – when the carpet is pushed too tightly together – or “gapping” – where not enough carpet is used.

Debris removal – The job does not end once the new carpet is installed. The best installation companies will also cart away the debris at no additional charge. It is no small matter as a homeowner would otherwise have to store the old carpet in the garage or outside until their next scheduled “large trash” pick-up day.
