Making Sure Your Carpet Installation is Legitimate

Since professional installation of your carpeting is so important, we’re going to share some things you want to be sure to look for, no matter who you choose. For instance, a proper professional installer should be able to provide proof of insurance. This is important, because it covers any damage that might occur to your flooring or your home that might happen.


Another important aspect of a professional carpet installation is the written warranty. While verbal warranties might seem appealing in some situations, having it in writing is a bit more insurance for you in case anything were to go wrong. It should cover, for example, issues that could occur with seams and stretching, and should be offered before the job ever starts.


References can be a very important aspect of the process as well. It should be noted, though, that anyone can create a list of references. If you are using an independent installer for your carpet installation, make sure to verify at least one or two of the references listed, to see what kind of review they are given.


You should also discuss, before the job is started, such things as where seams will be placed (they should never be placed in the main flow of traffic), who is responsible for furniture moving, and the removal and disposal of the old flooring. You should also discuss any particular concerns you have about the job before the work ever commences.
