Area rugs are a cinch to lay down and it’s most often a one person job. However, wall-to-wall carpeting is another story all together. Not only does the padding have to be laid first, but there are other particulars to think about as well. Seams, for instance, are sometimes hard to manage. All seams show in some form or another, with some carpets disguising them more than others. There is also a certain amount of stretching that has to be done in order to make sure the carpet doesn’t eventually bunch up in spots.
By the time you go out and purchase all the specialty tools needed to install your own carpet, you’ve doubled what you would have otherwise spent. When it comes to carpet, it’s definitely more beneficial to leave it to the pros.
