We strongly recommend that you’re home when the installers first arrive. This allows the installers to review the materials with you and confirm the installation area and address any questions regarding carpet placement, seams, or furniture. Also, the direction of patterned carpets should be reviewed and confirmed prior to the installation.
After reviewing the specifics with you, the installers will move furniture and remove old flooring material as agreed upon. Then, the transformation begins! The installation team will lay the carpet pad first and then lay your new carpet.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as an invisible seam. The lighting and style of a carpet has an impact on seam visibility, but the estimator/installers will lay the product in a way that doesn’t interfere with the overall look. Also, you may notice the carpet appears a bit different in color texture from being rolled up. Your new carpet will “relax” once installed and vacuumed a few times.
