Do It Yourself Carpet Installation

I'm often surprised to see experienced do-it-yourselfers shy away from carpet installation jobs. They'll take on ceramic tile and hardwood flooring, even pour their own concrete floors and then hire a professional to install their carpets. In reality, in comparison to some other types of flooring, carpet is a relatively easy flooring to self-install, granted you have the right installation tools, a little muscle, and the knowledge to get the project done correctly. Though muscles are not FindAnyFloor's expertise, they can help with the other two parts. FindAnyFloor.com has created the Advanced Carpet Installation Guide to walk you through successfully completing your carpet installation from step A to Z.

This guide will first help you identify suitable subfloors for carpet installation including instructions for moisture testing, inspecting, and leveling your subfloor. Then the installation guide helps you identify the right tools and other materials that are needed for your carpet installation. Once preparation is complete, you can then use this guide to walk you through installation of the carpet padding and the carpet itself (whether it is rolled carpet or tile carpet squares). The installation guide also has a section for completing carpet installations with special circumstances. This includes installing carpet around vents and fireplaces and installing carpet in doorways and on stairs.

As long as this carpet installation guide is carefully followed, I'm confident that most DIYers can successfully install their own carpet. However, before taking on any carpet installation, you should check with the manufacturer's instructions to ensure that you do not void your carpet's warranty.
