"We hired Hudson Carpet and Flooring and we were very happy with them. If we had an issue, they were out doing whatever they could to make it right. I would recommend them to others! We have worked with other contractors at our business that weren't so great to deal with. "

"Mike and his crew were amazing. This was actually about the fifth company I called to have our carpet restreched. Two companies blew me off, and another wanted so much money I could have bought a brand new carpet. Mike was easy to work with, responsive, and actually showed up early with about 5 other guys to help with the job. The quality is awesome and he gave me a fair price. I would definitely recommend him and would absolutely hire him again!!"

Ideas & Inspiration from Boston Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Boston Carpet Installation

Besides regular carpet maintenance, proper carpet installation in Boston is the best way to ensure you'll get long life and good performance out of your new carpets. But is this a do-it-yourself job, or is it better left to professionals? With a major home improvement like installing carpet, the quick and easy answer is almost always to hire the job out. A poor installation simply leads to too many problems down the road to make saving a few dollars worth the risk. That's not to say that this is a job that can't be done by a persistent homeowner with the right tools, however. That being the case, it's worth looking at what a good carpet installation entails, so that you can make the best judgment possible as to whether this is a job you want to tackle on your own.

The Cost of Hiring a Pro First of all, let's start with cost. Obviously the biggest reason to do it on your own is to save money. A basic carpet installation in Boston is likely to run in the neighborhood of one tenth to a third of your total cost, if you purchase carpet that wasn't in the bargain bin, but isn't a luxury line either. With an average carpet installation in Boston running $1,275 based on data that HomeAdvisor collects from post-project surveys, those are savings worth taking a chance on for some homeowners; though don't forget to add in extras such as equipment rental or purchases, and the cost of gas for getting around town. On the other side of the spectrum, spending several hundred dollars extra is worth every penny for many residents of Greater Boston, especially when you calculate in the time saved, frustration avoided, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing a professional did the job right.

The Process in a Nutshell A basic carpet installation in Boston is the same for contractors and home handymen alike. You'll start by tearing out the old carpet and cleaning and prepping the room. This includes installing the tackless strips, followed by laying down the carpet padding. Once your underlayment is down, you'll need to roll out your carpet, cut it a little bit larger (4"-6") than the room itself, and start the installation. Actual installation consists of attaching the carpet to the tackless strips on one side of a room with a knee kicker, then using the power stretcher on the opposite side of the room to pull the carpet tight before attaching it there as well. Throughout this process you'll use a utility knife to cut the carpet edges to the proper length, followed by tucking the remaining edge down under the wall.

Keep in mind that there isn't room in this article to fully detail a step-by-step carpet installation in Boston, or to go into particulars such as how to install seams or how to deal with doorways and transition areas. That being said, if you're going it alone, be sure to do some thorough reading ahead of time to make sure you have all the necessary tools handy, and the process down pat. You'll be more than thankful you took the time to prepare before hand once you get underway. Nevertheless, this information should give you an idea of what you're getting into if you install carpet in Boston on your own, as well as what to expect from your contractor if you choose to hire the job out.

If Not Done Correctly . . . The biggest risk you run in choosing to do a carpet installation in Boston yourself has to do with how long your carpet is going to last before you start seeing the tell-tale signs of a sub-par installation job. If it's done right, you can expect to enjoy 10 to 15 years of good performance from your new carpet without experiencing any problems whatsoever. Vacuum your carpet regularly and schedule a carpet cleaning once a year, and your carpet should look and feel pretty close to new for the duration of that time, as well. If your carpet installation isn't up to industry standards, however, you'll start to see issues like rippling, bulging, and buckling over time, all of which are signs that the carpet wasn't stretched or attached properly. This information is as important for those that hire their installation out as it is for DIYers. It's why finding a quality carpet installer to install your carpet in Beantown is equally important as hiring a pro in the first place. On that front, get at least three bids from different contractors and check references before you hire. It's far and away the best strategy when it comes to finding a carpet installer in Boston that is going to do the job right the first time out.
