Why use an accredited carpet fitter?March 5, 2019
Fitting your new carpet? Why we recommend using a certified expert
Upgrading your carpet is a big step- it can cost a lot and make a difference to the feel, appearance, and even price, of your home. Getting your carpet fitted by an accredited expert can easily feel like an unnecessary additional expense- and the temptation is always to attempt to fit your own, cutting down on the hefty price of the carpet itself. Perhaps you’re keen to buy the best looking, highest quality carpet possible and to absorb the additional expense you’re hoping to dust off your DIY handbook and tools and fit it yourself. Perhaps a friend or relative, or someone in your area, is a bit of an odd jobs man or woman, and has offered to do the job for less. It’s natural to want to save money, so why not explore the options available?
This is an understandable train of thought, and one shared by many homeowners- including all the ones who end up regretting their cost-cutting decisions. Some experienced DIY-ers can fit a carpet in a few days with the right experience, instructions, tools and equipment. But botch jobs are common and with something as expensive as a new household carpet, a single mistake could be a really, really expensive one. Fitting underlay adds a second more complex dimension to the process, and can easily be done sloppily- which will affect the feel of the flooring that will sit on top. The presence of air bubbles or creases, laying the wrong way up or poor fitting and inaccurate measurements and cuts.
The reason we always recommend using an accredited carpet fitter is that this uncertainty outweighs the extra cost. A mistake while fitting can cost a lot to undo, and it’s not one you’ll want to risk twice. By using an accredited carpet fitter you can trust that your carpet fitting will be completed quickly, efficiently and to the high standard we all want in our homes. Using professionals might sometimes feel like an extra expense- but the cost is worth it.
