I just took out the old carpet and carpet padding, there was wood under both.
I'm having hardwoods installed in one big area, about 900 sqft. It's an engineered pecan hardwood that can only be glued down. No nailing or free floating. I have hired it out and will be having it installed soon. I already have the flooring. What should I watch for with the installer to make sure he's doing a good job and doing it right?
He will be removing carpet and some tile that's in the space now. He may have to level the slab depending on how level it is. I want to make sure I get a good job. What should I watch for?
I was wondering how much money you can make an hour installing carpet. Where do you get training? I heard you need a license? Where would I get one? Does installing tile or hardwood pay more?
How much to install carpet in a 300 square foot room with everything included (cleaning, dispose of old carpet etc)?
There are very sharp nails popping up, dut to carpet being torn away by a cat. How can I fix this to make it safe?
I'm trying to hire someone to install carpeting in my basement (about 1100 sq. feet). The job would include removal of existing carpet.
I was quoted for a supposed midrange carpet (polyester type with 32 oz weight per sq foot - whatever that means) $3100 for the whole thing - is that a good quote? If not, how much can I expect to pay by breakdown (carpet, install, padding, removal)
Thanks greatly appreciated!
I will leave a best answer for your effort!
I have terrazzo floors and I just moved in. Is this something I can do easily by myself? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

I need to pull up a section of wall-to-wall carpet to put a layer of polly over some dog p*e stains on the sub-floor and I'm looking for tips on how I can be sure to lay the carpet back down as tightly as it was when the installers put it in.
My carpet was installed about 18 months ago. It looked fine then, but now has a couple of "bubbles" in it, so that it doesn't lie flat on the floor. What causes this and what can I do about it?
I recently pulled carpet from my living room and underneath the padding the installers used some type of glue and nails to keep it down. I cant contact the installers cause the carpet was down when i moved in. I have tried hot water and scraping. Id prefer not to sand but I think i may have to.
I have Laminate Floors throughout my apt. No carpet just laminate. How do I keep them cleaned?

About how long do you think ripping up carpets, putting down hardwood floors, painting a room, and getting furniture in will take? We are re-modeling three bredrooms in our home over the summer, and we have a very tight schedule.
p.s. we are hiring people to do this...

I was told the double sided tape would not hold up in this area but, there are NO INSTRUCTIONS on how to iron the HEAT BOND TAPE without melting the carpet. It's just a small area so I don't want to pay carpet installers prices to fix it. Any suggestions?
My brother has been doing sheetrock and painting work, mostly residential and bids the jobs by going in and measuring each wall space that he has to do. He has the chance to do 4 commercial jobs, finish the sheetrock and paint, each between 20,000 to 40,000 sq ft but can't figure out if he's supposed to bid on the floor space sq footage or the wall space sq footage. This could be his chance to really get going on his own and he's afraid of not bidding right, but we already know that a bid of 1.00 a sq foot is expected, just not if that means the sq footage of floor space or wall space. I hope this makes sense and someone can help really soon.
I am doing a remodel job on a8'by22'bedroom;and the carpet installer put carpet and padding down without tack strips,or glue;just loose fit laid it in there and told the homeowner to just put shoe moulding down to hold it in place.will this work,or was he being lazy?he said he couldn't get the nails into the old concrete.
Small room. Who are the people called that specialize with that?
My mom's basement recently flooded and now she wants me to remove part of her carpet. She claims that the only tool I'll need is a razor knife. It's basically just a carpet laid over the cement basement floor. I don't know whether the installer attached it to the floor with an adhesive substance of some sort. I doubt it, personally. I have to remove the section of the carpet that is soaked. So, will a razor knife suffice? Or, do I need a stronger cutting implement?
My fitted carpet (Broadloom) shows waves at several places. How do I get rid of these?
