Serving Raleigh, NC and Surrounding Areas
The carpeting throughout your home is not only functional, providing a soft, comfortable surface to walk on, it’s also an important part of your home’s decor. You want your carpet to look attractive for as long as possible, as well as provide a safe area to walk on without worrying about tripping. So, if you begin noticing the carpet is showing some wrinkles or there are significant buckled areas of carpet, you want to get it taken care of right away. Fortunately, you don’t have to replace your floor covering – we provide professional carpet stretching in Raleigh that can restore it to a like-new appearance.
When Is Carpet Stretching Necessary.
When its first installed, carpet is stretched tight across the room and is secured to a tack or adhesive. Professional installation is very secure, but over time, through daily traffic, age, and even temperature and moisture changes in the home, the carpet can either pull away from its tack strips or adhesive or the seams that connect carpeting strips can separate. Other times, simple wear and tear can cause the fibers and the backing to stretch out.
When this happens, the carpet, once flat and smooth, may look rippled, wrinkled, or lumpy, or it may look loose or has pulled out from the baseboards. This not only creates an unattractive aesthetic, loose carpet is more prone to additional wear and damage, and it also creates a dangerous tripping hazard in your home.
The good news is that if you call a professional when you notice the problems with your carpet, you most likely won’t need to replace your carpet. Instead carpet stretching is a fast, affordable solution that will restore your carpeting to a smooth, even, neatly tucked-in appearance.
How Does Carpet Stretching Work?
After inspecting your carpet, a professional carpet repair company in Raleigh, like ProGreen Carpet can determine the best course of action. If the problem is that the seams have come loose, we can easily re-seam the area and have it looking great quickly.
If it’s come loose from the tacking strips, we can lay down new strips, then use a power kicker or a Power Stretcher to stretch the carpet tightly across the floor, trim the excess, and anchor it to the new tacks. Then, we’ll tuck it under any baseboards, making sure it’s snug, smooth, and looking fantastic.
Benefits of Stretching Carpet over Replacement
If you’re seeing wrinkles in your carpet and aren’t sure if you should choose carpet stretching or replacement, consider the benefits of having it stretched:
Having all new carpet put in can cost thousands of dollars, even just for one room. While the cost of carpet stretching varies depending on the severity and extent of wear, it’s still a fraction of the cost of having all new carpeting installed.
Having new flooring put in requires the old carpet to be removed, new padding, tack, and carpeting laid down and stretched, then everything needs to be cleaned up. Depending on the size of the space, this can be a time-consuming process taking place in your home. With carpet stretching, we can often get the project done in just a few hours, at most.
Instead of hundreds of pounds of perfectly good carpeting ending up in a landfill, having it stretched and reattached often only leads to a few strips of carpet trimmed away and maybe some wood tack strips that get replaced. This method leads to significantly less waste and trash.
No Need to Pick Out New Carpet
If your carpet is a unique color or texture, it can be difficult to find the right replacement. Instead of trying to search out the exact match that goes with your home or choose a suitable replacement that you like, you can keep the carpet you like, only now it will look so much better.
