Craftsman fitting carpet onto floorBig home improvement projects that require professions like carpet installation are exciting — but they can also be stressful. 

When it comes to the carpet in your home, there is little room for error. Your home is one of the most important things to you and your family, so you want to hire someone that you know will carry out the vision you have for the end result. 

When looking for a carpet installer for your home, make sure you are picking the best of the best! Check out these five points to help you choose a top-rated carpet installer and feel confident that your home is in the best hands possible. 

1. Free consultation offered with an estimate before you commit

Any top-rated carpet installer will always offer a free carpet consultation before you make any sort of commitment to using them as your carpet installer. In a consultation, experts should physically come to your home to get the chance to measure, see, and judge which carpet styles and installation methods will work best with your house. 

Depending on the area you are carpeting, the type of carpet you are interested in, and a collection of other variables, the carpet installers will provide an estimate of how much the entire carpet installation will cost you. You should always be given an idea of the price of the project before being asked to commit.

2. Samples for examples

In order to decide which carpet looks, feels, and works the best, samples are a must. Top-rated carpet installers will provide tangible samples of the carpets that they offer to give you an opportunity to get a clearer idea of how the carpet will fit your needs.

3. Prepared to repair the subfloor

The subfloor is the unfinished, first layer of floor laid down in your home. Your carpet will be installed on top of the subfloor (or, more likely — on top of underlayment laid on top of the subfloor). It is important for the subfloor to be secure and undamaged to provide a solid base for your finished flooring. 

If a company does not include subfloor repair in their standard carpet installation, find someone else! Top-rated carpet installers make it a priority to ensure that your carpet is installed on a sound subfloor. 

4. Can clearly explain to you what is happening

It is crucial that you understand what is happening and why when it comes to your home. You should be aware of each step of the carpet installation process and how it affects your house. 

A high-quality carpet installer will willingly walk you through the carpet installation process, explaining the details in an understandable way and answering any questions you may have. If a company is reluctant (or unable) to do this, you can do better for yourself — explaining the process is an expectation.

Like any robust home project, carpet installation requires some moving parts. The best carpet installers treat your home like their own even when the project is at its peak. This means that they will take care of all clean-up and putting any moved furniture back in its rightful spot. When you hire a top-rated carpet installer, you should not be left with the work of cleaning up the mess of a professional.
