How to Install Wall to Wall Carpets Yourself

Installing wall to wall carpets not only enhances the beauty of a room but provides sound control,  insulation, and a comfortable surface to walk on.

Here we are discussing how to install wall to wall carpets yourself. Step by step methods are here.

Determine the Area of the Room where to install wall to wall carpets

Measure the longest dividers in your room. Increase the length and width, and separation by 9 to decide the square yardage. Add 10% to consider mistakes, inconsistencies and pattern matching.

Clean the Subfloor

Ensure the surface to be covered is smooth and clean. Scrape up any paint or joint compound and clear and vacuum the floor completely.

Remove the Doors

If possible,  remove the doors from the room so you will not need to work around them. Having the entryways far removed will likewise make it simpler for you to remove the bottoms of the door frames if fundamental.

Install the Tackless Strips and the Carpet Pad

Cut the tackless strips to size with a strip cutter or heavy snips. Nail the strips 1/2" from the wall. Tackless strips come in a variety of widths, thicknesses and heights. Make sure you're using the correct size. If you're installing carpet over a concrete subfloor, use epoxy adhesive or masonry tacks to hold the tackless strips in place. Then lay out the carpet pad perpendicular to the direction you plan to install the carpet, and staple it near the tackless strips with a staple hammer

Staple Any Pad Seams

Staple the seam of the pad,  substituting staples so they aren't next to each other. Stretch the padding so that the pieces are butted tightly together.

Trim the Pad

Feel through the padding to find the tackless strip, and utilize a utility blade to remove the padding along the interior edge of the that all the tacks are uncovered

Notch Corners for Trimming

Measure the room at its longest point, and add 3" to the measurement. Take the carpet outside if possible, and notch the back on both sides at the appropriate length. The carpet will be easier to handle outside. You might want someone to help you.

Trim the Carpet to Size and Trim the Excess Carpet

Roll the carpet with the back facing outward until the notched areas show. Then run a chalk line from notch to notch. Cut the back of the carpet along the chalk line, roll up the carpet, and take it back inside.

Roll out the carpet into the room. Keep it as straight as possible. Cut away excess carpet, but leave about 3" extra next to the walls. Lay out any additional carpet needed to fill the room

Glue the Seams Together and Trim Around the Obstacles

Dry-fit the carpet, butting one end against a wall. Use a carpet knife to trim the carpet to fit around obstacles.

Attach the First Edge of the Carpet and Trim the Excess from the Edges

Attach the carpet to the tackless strips at one end of the room, using the knee kicker. Place the face of the knee kicker against the carpet about 3" away from the wall, and forcefully strike the padded end to stretch the carpet over the tackless strips.

Trim excess carpet with a wall trimmer, which rests against the wall and provides a straight cut at the correct spot. Use a stair tool to press the cut edges underneath the baseboard trim 

Stretch the Carpet

Use the power stretcher to attach to the strips on the other side of the room. For corners and alcoves where the power stretcher can't reach, use the knee kicker and stair tool.

Use the Binder Bar

Nail a binder bar to any areas where the carpet ends without abutting a wall such as a threshold. Stretch the carpet with the knee kicker to link to the hooks in the binder bar then use a wooden block or scrap piece of lumber to close the binder bar onto the edge of the carpet.
