Why Choose Us
When you call in a professional carpet installer to lay your carpet, you know that the job is going to be completed to the highest possible standard. The benefits of hiring a professional carpet installer far outweigh the risks in laying it yourself. For instance, even if the worst-case scenario occurs and your new carpet begins to lift away from the walls, or starts to ripple and buckle – you will be able to rest easy knowing that, when working with professionals, you will not have to pay for the repairs. But of course, the best way to avoid these mistakes is to have them installed properly the first time. At All Hard Floor and Carpet Installations Canberra, we will guarantee that your carpet is installed without any damage to your carpet. Your carpet will meet the walls perfectly, without any edges showing, and with no bumps or ridges – all hallmarks of a job well done.
When it comes to carpet installation there are two main methods: glue down carpet installation and stretch in carpet installation. However, glue down installations have two variations, direct glue down installation and double glue down installation.
Direct Glue Down Installation
Direct glue down installation is the most common method of carpet installation in commercial settings. With this method, the carpet is glued directly to the floor. This means that any imperfections on the floor will be visible on the carpet. This method is appropriate for commercial installations as it is suitable for large areas, makes the carpet more solid with minimal movement, and is suitable for ramps. That being said, this also leads to less comfort, less insulation, and less durability due to the lack of underlay.
Double Glue Down Installation
Double glue down installation is similar to the aforementioned but, rather than gluing directly to the floor, we first glue underlay to the floor and then glue the carpet to the underlay. This leads to more comfort and insulation, while also extending the life of the carpet due to the shock absorbency of underlay. Nevertheless, this method is more expensive than the direct method. A replacement of a double glue down carpet is more difficult to carry out than a direct glue down carpet, the underlay itself leads to higher costs, and double the gluing leads to double the installation as it takes longer and requires more resources.
Stretch in Carpet Installation
A stretch in carpet installation is the most popular method for home installations. For this installation, strips of woods are nailed or glued to the floor around the edges of the room. These strips hold hundreds of nails that are angled towards the wall, underlay is then laid down in the centre of the room and the carpet is attached to the nails around the room. The carpet is then stretched tightly across the room. This method is perfect for homes as it is quick, comfortable, insulating, and will last longer due to the underlay. Furthermore, this type of installation is also easier to replace than a glued down carpet and allows the installer to work with patterned carpets. This method, however, is not recommended for large spaces due to buckling or rippling concerns.
