Different Types Of Carpet Installations To Help You Choose Better
Posted by Michael Griffin on September 26th, 2019
Carpets in any setting or location enhance the aura and appeal of a place, be it commercial or residential. Thanks to a variety of options being available on the market today, once can pick and choose whatever carpet they want to according to their needs and requirements. Evergreen carpet variations are one to look out for and also in other places as well. Apart from carpets, their installations have various types as well, below are some of them detailed out for you.
Glue Down Carpet Installation
There are two sub-categories in this variant which are direct and double glue down carpet installation.
This is the most popular option when it comes to commercial installations. The carpet is directly glued to the floor although needs to be very smooth for this installation to be possible. Amy imperfections if any will be visible through the carpet and this may lead to the carpet being worn down.
Also referred to as double stick installation, this installation is similar to the direct glue down installation, the only difference here being that first glue a pad to the floor and then glue the carpet to the pad. The pad for this type of installation can not be any carpet pad, but a densified pad made specifically for this type of installation.
This particular installation type is the most sought after installation method. In this installation, strips of wood are nailed (or sometimes glued) to the floor around the edges of the room. These strips have hundreds of nails that are angled in towards the wall. Padding is secured to the floor in the middle of the room. The carpet is attached to pins afterwards throughout the room. The hired professional then stretches the carpet tightly across the room.
A cut-to-fit carpet installation is not exactly a verified and accepted form of carpet installation. The installer will cut the carpet according to the room's measurements, although it won't be attached to the floor. The Evergreen carpet is put down over the floor just to check the fit. A fitted installation can be put down directly on the floor, or maybe over a pad if needed. If a pad is used, it should be a firm dense pad to minimize the possibility of buckles or ripples.
