Why You Should Get Carpet Professionally Installed
A savvy home renovator knows when to spend and when to save. In the case of carpet installation, we believe it’s best to call in the pros, and we’re not just saying that because flooring is our business! The following are some of the reasons why we think investing in professionally-installed carpet is worthwhile.
Doing the job day in and day out allows our installers to virtually install carpet with their eyes closed. A novice may struggle to achieve the same high quality installation without the knowledge that lets professionals anticipate problem areas and how to work around them. This may not be an issue if you have time to spare, but any little errors will definitely pile onto the hours you spend on this task.
Estimating the right amount of carpet is a challenge in itself, with consideration needing to be paid to minimising seams for the smoothest outcome and how to reduce waste. Professionals will also be able to identify traffic patterns and light direction which affect carpet’s appearance. If an installer makes an error, any extra carpet and labour needed will be absorbed into the cost of the installation. If you make an error, you foot the bill for the cost of any additional carpet.
One thing that enables professional installers to achieve the right tension and tautness when installing carpet is the use of specialist equipment like a power stretcher or knee kicker. These tools are available for hire, but without training in using this equipment, you could be unknowingly using them incorrectly, resulting in a poorly-installed carpet. Poorly-installed carpet will ripple and slacken, which means further work for you down the road. Inexperience using the equipment could also increase your risk of injury, especially if you have a bad back or knees.
Manufacturers’ warranties usually only cover faults caused during the manufacturing process. If you install carpet yourself, you could be left out of luck and out of pocket if any issues arise. Andersens, on the other hand, offers a Life of your Carpet Installation Guarantee*. This guarantees the workmanship and installation materials for the lifetime of your carpet, so you can have the peace of mind of knowing your flooring will last.

What Our Customers are Saying
Jared and Cassandra are hard working, cheerful, honest business partners. They made my experience of choosing carpet and then laying 5 rooms of it simple and convenient. I also had plenty of choice of colour and style from their extensive range. The measure and quote was done in a timely, efficient manner and Jared is very personable. They even quoted, then organised, the shifting and replacement of furniture on the day. I am very impressed with Andersens at Burleigh Heads. Sincerely, thank you both.
