How Do I Install Carpet?

Carpet is often best installed by professionals, but

it can still look good if you take your time to install it correctly and properly.

Once the old carpet is removed, go ahead and remove the old tack strip around the room. More than likely, it is worn out as well, so let’s start over with new. Be sure to not install tack strips in front of doorways. It is best to leave about a half inch of space between the wall and the edge of the tack strip. They will need to be tightly fitted against each other in the corners.

For the underlay, lay it down in strips that lie next to each other, but do not over lap them. Once you have the floor covered, tack the material down with stapes of tacks, and put duct tape on all the seams.

To install the carpet, start with a strip of carpet that is longer than the room by four to six inches. If you need more than one strip of carpet to fill the room, make sure that the pile runs the same direction. Then, stretch the carpet across the tack strip, and then stretch the carpet down the room until you get to the other end, and then cut the other end to fit the room.
