Reviews of Baltimore Carpet Contractors

Project: Install Carpeting
Baltimore, MD

Robbie was very professional. He came out and measured the basement and gave me a fair price for carpet and padding as well as leveling the basement floor where there were several low areas. His quote was about $500 less than other estimates. His crew (Steven and Dave) came out a week later, leveled the floor, laid the carpet with no issues. Both were very friendly and professional. Robbie called me later in the evening to ask how things went. I told him how pleased I was with the carpet and will have Forever Carpet come out to give me an estimate on another project later this summer. I recommend Forever Carpet for new carpet installation.

 
Project: Install Carpeting
Hanover, MD

Sebastian was extremely knowledgable about carpet and padding, not to mention he was totally up front about the best selections to fit our budget... and had a fantastic personality! Although Sebastian did not do the actual install himself, he did follow up with a call to make sure we were satisfied with everything. If he does have other contractors come out to do your install, I would recommend that you check out the work along the way to ensure it meets your level of quality and satisfaction. I did have to ask them to rekick the carpet tighter in our master bedroom. Because the master is so large, it had to have a seam that appeared to have a slight pucker in one spot along the seam. Also, the TFS contractor who installed the carpet on my wood stairs was going to install it on the first step begining on the riser, right where it butts up against the floor. That would have been a filthy carpet over time as we had the wood floors cleaned. I had to ask him to start it just above the wood strip along the floor and stairs. They took care of both issues as soon as soon as I pointed them out with no problem. In the end, we were extremely happy with the final carpet and installation. I would absolutely use Total Flooring Solutions again and highly recommend them!!!

 
Project: Install Carpeting
Glen Burnie, MD

This is Sebastian's company, and he is awesome! kind and courteous. When you meet him, he explains everything to you, What will work in this region and what won't work in this region. He gives you his opinion about tile vs hardwood floor vs carpet vs linoleum . His workers are very hardworking professional and they know what they are doing. They had my hardwood floors and carpeting done in 1 day. I thought it would take 2 days for them to complete the hardwood floors, but they were very systematic in the installation. It was also very nice to see how they all worked together and knew what to do as a "TEAM". Another group of worker came and installed the carpet to my steps. They also had the "TEAM WORK" going and got the steps done with ease. I am so impressed with the workers who again had great team work going on among themselves, and Sebastian coming to my house making sure everything looked great and making sure I liked the work. I didn't like it ...I LOVED IT!!!! and my neighbor's were so impressed that 1 has already had Sebastian's team install carpet for their house . It is beautiful!!!! My other neighbor will be contacting them also for carpet. Thank you Sebastian and crew for a FANTASTIC job you did for me. My hardwood floors are simply beautiful and my carpet on my steps I love so much, I am going to have them install the same carpet downstairs in Sept. I feel like I have a new home for way less then a quarter of the price of a new home. From my heart, smiles, Patty A. I would like to post pictures of the floor and carpet later when I get home from work.

Ideas & Inspiration from Baltimore Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Baltimore Carpet Installation

When it comes to carpet installation in Baltimore, you're going to be faced with the decision of whether you want to do it on your own, or whether to set out in search of a qualified carpet installation contractor to perform your installation for you. Carpet installation can be done by a DIYer, though for reasons we'll get into in a moment, if you don't have any prior experience with carpet installation, your best bet is probably going to be hiring a professional.

Why Proper Installation is so Important The carpet problem that keeps more Crabtown carpet repair companies in business than any other is loose carpeting, which manifests itself in symptoms like rippling, buckling, and bulging. If you doubt that fact, take a look at the carpet repair section in the Baltimore yellow pages and see how many entries you find that specialize in carpet re-stretching and re-fastening, the industry terms for pulling your carpets tight again and reattaching them properly to the tackless strips. What's to blame for the majority of those loose carpets in Charm City? You guessed it: poor installation.

Extends the Life of Your Carpeting While the day-to-day life of a carpet is probably the last thing on your mind, it's worth considering the fact that your average carpeting encounters some pretty taxing situations over the course of a lifetime. Multiple carpet cleanings using powerful steam vacuum cleaners, homeowners dragging heavy furniture from one spot to another, and the accumulative stress caused by years of foot traffic, all stretch your carpeting to the limit. A carpet that's been properly installed, using the right techniques and tools, like knee kickers and power carpet stretchers, can take all those beatings and more for a minimum of 10 to 15 years without showing any adverse effects. A carpet that has been installed poorly, however, will give under the pressure in a fraction of that time.

Basic Installation The right way to install carpeting in Baltimore is actually a pretty straightforward process. First, the old carpet needs to be removed, and the area will have to be thoroughly cleaned—you'll be amazed at how much dirt and dust has escaped your regular vacuuming. After that, tackless strips need to be installed around the edges of the room, followed by the installation of your carpet padding. The carpet is then rolled out, cut 4"-6" longer than necessary at each wall, after which the tough part begins. Starting at one end of the room, the carpet needs to be trimmed straight and to the right length, attached to the tackless strips using a tool called a knee kicker, and then a power carpet stretcher is used to pull the carpet tight to the opposite wall, where it's attached and trimmed on the other end. In poor carpet installations, this is where things go wrong. If the carpet isn't attached and stretched properly, it won't be too long before signs of a sub par carpet installation in Baltimore begin to surface.

Costs With all that being said, if you're not completely confident in your abilities to install your carpet correctly, it's a good idea to hire a pro. Carpet installation in Baltimore averages about $1,900 per job, based on data that HomeAdvisor collects from the thousands of contractor referrals we provide Baltimoreans every year. Like any home improvement, that number can vary quite a bit. The cheapest job we have on record ran just $700, while the most expensive in our books topped out at $7,000. Why the huge range in prices? There are a lot of factors that influence how much carpet installation might cost. For example, that $700 price tag was likely for a single family or bedroom, while the $7,000 job was for high-end carpeting installed in a (very!) large home. Purchasing your carpet separately, shopping around for a competitive bid from a carpet installation contractor, and not being talked into purchasing carpet that's more than you need, are all ways to cut your costs if you're looking for ways to save a few pennies along the way.

When it comes to Baltimore carpet installation, it pays to get it done right. If you've got the know-how, the tools, and the time, by all means tackle this one yourself. If not, hiring a professional carpet installer to do the job will guarantee new carpeting that's going to last, problem free, for years to come.
