Many people install their own tile but dont know how to finish the job with the carpet to tile transition. Often professional tile installers dont know how to finish their job with a proper carpet to tile transition. There are several good ways to do a carpet to floor transition that I will explain in the carpet to tile transition article. When people refer to a Berber carpet theyre referring to a looped carpet with rows. Its not really a Berber carpet but for our purposes here its okay to call it Berber. For an interesting read on the history of Berber carpet click here. Berber carpet repair is often needed due to a snag in a Berber carpet or a pull in a Berber carpet. A pull in a Berber carpet happens when one or more threads get caught either in a vacuum or some other way. Often times its the family pet or a child that pulls Berber carpet and creates the snag or run.
Few things can make a house feel more inviting or add a dramatic flair to a room than carefully chosen carpeting. Today its something most of us take for granted but that hasnt always been so. Before the 1950s wall to wall carpet was considered an expensive luxury reserved for the wealthy. That all changed with the post-war building boon in the middle of the 20th century. With new advancements in carpet fibers manufacturing methods and an expanding market wall to wall carpeting was suddenly within reach of a growing middle class. Sixty years ago fiber texture pattern and color were limited and vacuum cleaner technology was in its early stages. As a result carpet life was short. Today choices are nearly unlimited. A wide range of price points and carpet exist for nearly every room and application. Even moderately priced carpet can bring years of enjoyment to your home.
If you have a stain that you cant get out or you have damaged carpet due to a burn (not the good kind) or your bad dog or cat thinks that carpet is a food group then a patch may be the only solution. Patching isnt as easy as it looks. The patch needs to be exactly perfect. If theres any overlap or gap at the seam (at all) youll be sorry. You can use a leftover piece of carpet from the original installation or steal a piece of carpet from a closet to do your carpet patching. One thing you probably cant do is go to the carpet store and buy a piece to match. A carpet to floor transition is anyplace where the carpet ends and the floor begins. If its at a tile floor we call it a carpet to tile transition.
Removing replacing or installing new built-in furniture walls floor heaters toilets cabinets and other fixtures are just a few reasons that a carpet installer will need install the carpet properly into the room. This will require some new tack strip and possibly some new carpet and pad to add to the area. Many times the customer will have some carpet left over from the installation. If not we can often take carpet from the closet. Removing carpet and carpet pad is simple but sometimes strenuous. If we are trying to save the carpet to use in a different room or to re-carpet the hallway or stairway we will want to try to keep it in one piece. If the objective is just to remove old carpet and old carpet pad we will make it easy on ourselves by cutting the carpet into strips approximately two feet wide.
