A qualified carpet installer will have the experience it takes to do the job right the first time, along with the tools needed for carpet installation to move quickly and handle any unexpected situations.

If you have the experience and know the key steps to carpet installation, this process is certainly something you can tackle on your own. However, there are some downsides to DIY carpet installation. For starters, you'll need to check with your retailer and possibly the manufacturer to make sure the carpet is covered under warranty for a home installation. You'll also need the right tools including tackless strips, a knee-kicker, a carpet stretcher, and a seam roller. Finally, you'll need to be prepared to deal with any unforeseen complications. It's a huge job and there are stressful challenges to carpet installation!

During and after installation

A member of your household who is at least 18 or older should be available to greet the installation crew and show them the work area. For everyone’s safety and to help the project go smoothly, keep children and pets away from the work area until the job is done. Feel free to ask your lead installer any questions about carpet installation you might have.


Understanding the carpet installation process begins with removal of your old flooring. Then, carpet padding is placed down to make the carpet feel softer when you're stepping on it and to help absorb noise. Next comes the actual carpet. The carpet should meet each wall snugly with no edges showing. It should lay smoothly without any bumps or ripples, and none of the seams should be obvious.
