Your New Carpet: Visiting Our Store and Installation Day

Published: August 3rd, 2015

If you are thinking about buying new carpet, you might be wondering what to do first. Do you take your own measurements and bring them to the store? Or do you pick your carpeting first and then take measurements? How long does it take to get new carpeting installed anyway?

When you visit our store to browse through our selection of carpets, we will gladly walk you through the steps to get your new carpeting selected and installed. You don’t need to take measurements before you come in. We offer free in-home estimates so we can visit your home and take the measurements while we are there. We can also talk to you about the type of carpeting you want, and we can tell you about your options and which ones will best meet your wants and needs.

Either before or after the measurement, you can come down to our store and make your selection. Our carpeting experts can talk to you even more about your options, and we can work with you to stay within your budget.

From there, we will schedule your installation day. Generally speaking, this could be a couple of days from when you first come in to select your new carpet, but it could take a few weeks depending on how long the carpet takes to ship from the mill and how busy our installation team is.

On installation day, our team will take care of pretty much every aspect of the carpeting installation. The team will pull up your old carpeting and haul it away. The existing tack strip will stay where it is unless it is loose, discolored or damaged. Our team can replace some of this tack strip for free if need be, but there might be an additional charge if the team has to replace all of it. However, this is usually not the case. Usually the tack strip is just fine and only a little bit of it will need to be replaced.

After that, our team will install your new carpeting room by room. We can help you move furniture around if you need some extra sets of hands.

Most of our carpeting installation jobs are done in a day or so. One bedroom only takes a few hours, depending on its size. But multiple levels of new carpeting might take a couple of days. We give you time in between to move furniture and other belongings around if you need to.
