 How To Choose Your Philadelphia Carpet Installer


When it comes time to purchase new carpet for your home, you give the carpet a lot of consideration. It must be of good quality to ensure it will last. It must compliment the home décor. You consider the texture, feel and durability. But how much consideration do you give the carpet installation? Most people just assume, laying the carpet is just part of the deal. However, if something goes wrong, chances are good it will happen during the carpet installation.


There are many Philadelphia carpet installers. How do you know who you can trust to do a job worthy of your new purchase? Here are a few tips to help you choose the right Philadelphia carpet installer:


1. Referrals


Ask your friends, neighbors and family for references of people who did a quality job for them. Ask your carpet dealer for recommendations. It is always a good idea to check with people you know. Check the internet for Philadelphia carpet installers and look for the reviews from their clients. Do the research.


2. Check out the company


Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints are unresolved with the provider. See how long they have been in business. Do they guarantee their work? Do the thoroughly check out their employees?


Most of us would not go to a department store and bring a random sales clerk to our home. But many people will go to a large store to purchase carpet and allow them to send people into our homes, without us knowing anything about that person. Further, we give them information as to when we are home and when we are not. We allow them to tour our home without any thought to what could happen.


A reputable Philadelphia carpet installer is happy to provide you with references, business licenses and will welcome you to their place of business. They will let you know who to expect and when to expect them. Your safety and security is important to them. When you need carpet again, or when your friends or family need carpet installed, they want to be the name you remember. Carpet is what they do.


3. Work with them – ask questions


Most rooms are wider than the carpet rolls. This means they will require seams. Properly installed carpet looks seamless. It is a good idea to have the seams under where furniture will go and out of high traffic areas so the seams will not show as the carpet ages.


The use of a power stretcher is required. You may also see the installer use a knee-kicker as a finishing tool. Ripping and buckling over time is usually a result of improper stretching.


4. Plan your work
