Carpet Installation Guide

A house becomes a home when the interiors reflect your personality. Besides the furniture, the furnishings and the fittings, so much depends on you choice of carpeting. Carpeting exudes an ambiance few accessories can compete with. Today, there is a large variety of carpeting available in an equally large variety of material, texture, designs, colors and of course prices. They come under exclusive banners as well as local brands. Once installed a carpet is in for a long haul and your choice should be one which will be durable and able to withstand the wear and tear of time.

Installing carpets, especially the wall-to-wall kind needs professional execution and it is best to contract a specialized agency to do the job for you. If the retailer does not have the option of installation they will have agencies with whom they regularly conduct business and they will be the best people to guide you. Problems, if any, can be sorted out by going through the seller. If the budget is a constraint then look for independent services but be sure to check for credentials, experience and maintenance services post-installation. You don’t want a rush job that ends up being a mess. The standard procedure for installation of carpets in homes is CRI105 and this should be adhered to.

Certain things need to be kept in mind before the installation is carried out. Ensure that the professional agency you choose is aware of these minor details. It is essential for the carpet to be power stretched to avoid wrinkling and rippling during the installation. Rooms need to be accurately measured and the old carpet should be vacuum cleaned prior to removal so that the dust is taken away and cleaning is easier before the new one is installed. The edges of the new carpet must be trimmed and sealed with hardwood to ensure a good finish and to avoid peeling at a later stage.

Good installation will ensure long term use without any maintenance costs and hassles so ensure that you are fully satisfied with the job done and check closely for any possible problems. It makes sense to spend a little extra for installation rather than keep spending for refitting at a later stage.

For a complete look, invest in some research about carpets and look for something that suits your requirements, then find the carpet with your choice of design, texture and colors. Get a good installation agency to do the job for you and you are all set to have the world at your feet literally!

Things To Consider Before Hiring A Home Improvement Contractor

All of us desire to lead a great life. In this pursuit we tend to make alterations to our surroundings so that they adapt to our changing lifestyle. When we talk of making an improvement in a part of our home or the home itself as a whole, then we think of hiring the services of professionals who are specialists in their respective fields. In other words, we give a contract to a contractor who undertakes to carry out a specific task of remodeling a segment or home improvement in general. We pay a particular price that includes his fee as well as the charges that are required for completing the work.

Different types of contractors are available for different purposes. It is very important to get the right contractor for the purpose we wish to hire them for. Research has to be done on your proposed project before hiring the services of a contractor.

For instance, for plumbing work you have to look out for a contractor with plumbing experience. Inquire with your friends for referrals, see online customer review sites, ask at your local home hardware store, check with a local licensing agency or try the yellow pages when looking for contractors. Calling at least three potential contractors to interview helps in making comparison. When asking for quotations, give every contractor the same details so your comparison is consistent.

When it comes to interviewing the contractor, following are the questions you have to bear in your mind:

1.Is the contractor licensed in this city/state? If yes then you should call up the local building department’s licensing office for the validation of the license. As a part of consumer awareness also call up your state’s consumer protection agency the better business bureau meant for grievances who know more about securing license in your state.

2.Check out three references from jobs done the previous year. That helps you track the contractor’s history, find how reliable he is and his ability to stick to the budget and schedule.

3.Whether or not he is insured. He should be insured in order to save you from getting into any kind of legal hassles as well as financial burden should he meet with an accident at your place. Always ask for a copy of his insurance. The contractor should have general liability, workman’s compensation, auto insurance, and property and personal liability.

4.Check out the no. of years of experience he has got in this field. If he’s into this business for over five years then it’s an indication of him being reliable.

5.Has the contractor got a portfolio to showcase his work? This would give you an idea of what sort of work he undertakes.

6.Ask for a detailed estimate that’s itemized and includes labor, materials, overhead and a schedule. Compare it with the estimates given by other contractors.

You have contractors available for various purposes like plumbing, construction, home improvement, remodeling of bathroom or kitchen or toilet, installation of shower, etc. Select your contractor according to your proposed project.
