Carpet Installation: Professionals vs. DIY

You’ve chosen an amazing carpet design from Signature Flooring & Interior. Now all that’s left to do is hire us for carpet installation in your NY home and you’re good to go.

While hiring us for carpet and rug installation isn’t exactly expensive, you feel your DIY senses tingling and you want to take this opportunity try a hand at it.

But before you decide that this is what you want to do, let’s discuss some key factors about your potential choice and whether it’s a good idea or not.

What to Know When Installing a Carpet in Your Home

– Room Design

This is one snag in your otherwise perfect DIY adventure. While it’s not as difficult to install your carpet yourself, not knowing how to work around the edges can cause problems. Irregularities in the floor plan, the corners and such can make the carpet look uneven and shoddy, something you won’t have to worry about if you instead ask a professional to help.

– Cost

Of course, one of the greatest benefits of going DIY with your carpet installation is costs. However, you’re forgetting that the money you save on labor might end up getting spent on equipment and supplies. While a professional would have all the tools in their arsenal for a quick and snappy carpet installation, you’ll need to buy specialized equipment to perform the installation. It won’t help that you’ll probably need to rely on Google to tell you what to buy.

– Experience and Skill Level

Unless you’re yourself a professional in the field, you will hit a few snags along the way. Flooring installation is technical work. Improper or amateur work will not only potentially ruin the look of your carpet; it might just end up costing you time and money if you have to call a professional anyway. Having a professional do the job will assure you that it is performed correctly.
