Factors that Might Affect Patterned Carpet Installation

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
A successful patterned carpet installation requires a thorough understanding of patterned carpet characteristics by designers, specifiers, and all others involved with the carpet selection and installation process. Carpet is a textile fabric subject to inevitable processing variations. These variations are more critical when patterns are introduced. Most manufacturers provide established tolerances and specific installation instructions for their patterned goods, although most do not guarantee an exact pattern match. Skilled, responsible, and competent craftsmen experienced in the installation of patterned carpet can effectively make adjustments within the manufacturer. s tolerances to provide a successful installation. To assist this process, the manufacturer. s tolerances should be clearly understood, communicated, and agreed upon by all parties prior to the specification, bid, purchase, and installation. There should also be an understanding about the additional carpet that must be allowed for pattern match.

Factors affecting an acceptable pattern match on the job site include, but are not limited to, the method of installation, the condition and levelness of the subfloor, and the type carpet backing system selected. It is imperative that realistic levels of expectation be clearly agreed upon between all parties before the carpet is installed.

Installation of patterned carpet requires more time and expertise, often requiring the use of power stretchers and additional staffing, thus affecting the cost of installation.

Patterned carpeting can really liven up a room, but installing it can be very challenging and requires preparation. The difficulties come from bowing, untrue edges, bias and repeat pattern variation. Manufacturers make pattern carpeting to acceptable tolerances but they may not be exact. When you purchase your carpet, be sure and buy extra carpeting so that when you cut the master pieces, you will have sections to work with to insure a pattern match.

Bowing and Bias

Bowing occurs when the carpeting has ripples, causing the patterns to not lie true. Bias happens when the patterns are not perfectly square. If you measure the distance between opposite edges of the carpet all the way up and down the edges, they will not be the same. And variations from one pattern to another occur because of imperfections in the manufacturing process.

Installing the Carpet

Begin by unrolling the carpet and laying it out in the room where it will be installed. Allow it to sit there for 24 hours to let the gravity and humidity help to resolve many of the problems. You will have to use a carpet stretcher to get the ends to be true and to get out all of the bowing. Now you need to figure where you will have to make cuts in the carpeting to have it fit in the room properly. Sometimes you may have irregular walls or there may be an obstacle that the carpeting must fit around. Overlap the pieces of carpeting where the cut will be made so that the pattern matches exactly. Use a carpet knife to simultaneously cut through both carpet pieces. Put the cut pieces together so the pattern matches and then glue them down to the floor. Allow the glue to completely dry. After you have done this for all of your cuts, glue down the rest of the carpeting and you are finished.
