    Hire a Carpet Fitter Near Me

    Need a carpet installer in your area? MyJobQuote has hundreds of carpet specialists nationwide making it quick and simple to find the best carpet fitters near you. You can then compare quotes to get the best prices.

    Experienced carpet fitters can prepare the flooring area for you and fit the carpet, ensuring that any seams or joins are minimal, leaving a professionally laid carpet in your home or commercial building. Carpet fitters usually also fit sheet or vinyl tiles, plus lay laminate or solid timber floors. A typical carpet laying job in a domestic home would entail measuring up floor space and estimating the amount of material needed, before proceeding with fitting your selected carpets. Quotes are often given based on the size and shape of a room.

    Domestic Carpet fitters will also clear the work area of furniture and taking off doors, removing old flooring, cleaning and levelling the bare floor, gluing or nailing the new carpet into place, stretching carpet over spiked gripper rods, then replacing furniture and trimming and re-hanging doors. Commercial carpet layers also will liaise with the main contractor and other trades and work with a wider team and contracts manager. When decorating your property choosing a new carpet can have a major impact on your home.

    New carpets can revamp an entire room and are great for young children who will spend time a lot of time crawling or playing on the floor, being warmer, softer, and easier on their knees than other types of flooring such as hardwood or laminate flooring. Fitting a carpet can also save you money on heating bills in the long run as it will insulate your floor, plus is less expensive to install than other flooring types such as hardwood or tiled floors.

    Carpet Fitters Cost And Price Guide

    Carpet fitting costs usually work out from £3 to £6 per square metre of material. However additional charges apply in certain circumstances, for example where the carpet needs fitting across awkward shaped surfaces or hard to reach corners. Curved stairways, internal window bays, and some hallways or landings will often attract a higher price. In addition to standard carpet fitting costs, there might be extras or surcharges for fitting tasks such as uplifting the old flooring (around £1 per square metre), room clearance at around £20 per room, door easing usually charged at £10 per door. When getting quotes it is important to check that these additional tasks (if necessary) are included in the price quoted by the company, to avoid any last minute surprises!

    These are of course simply average costs as a rough price guide, to find the best deal in your area you will need to compare fitting prices and additional charges from a number of different companies and carpet fitters. The simplest and fastest way to do this is by using the free quote service on this site, simply enter your details into a simple online form and then get 3 or more local recommended carpet fitters get in touch with you to provide quotes with no obligation.

    Choosing a Carpet Fitter

    Fitting a carpet may seem like a straightforward job, but like many DIY tasks, the devil is in the detail! Badly laid carpets look bad, are more susceptible to damage and will decrease the life expectancy of the carpet. That's why, for the majority of us, it makes sense to hire professional carpet fitters who know what they are doing when laying carpets! The National Institute of Carpet and Floor Layers is an organisation that has approved members and you can check the carpet fitter you are hiring is registered and approved. When hiring a carpet fitter it is important to find out what exactly is included in the price they have quoted. For example check that subfloor preparation, installation costs, removal of existing flooring, moving of existing furniture and appliances, all necessary materials and insurance is included on all quotes to ensure you are comparing like for like.

    Be sure to get all quotes in writing and check any references supplied. A good carpet fitter can also give advice on the best type of carpet to lay, as choosing the right type of carpet is as important as getting it fitted correctly. Professional carpet companies can consider factors such as the amount of human traffic the room gets per day and whether the room will be used by kids or pets.
