  1. INTD 54 estimating carpet

  2. measuring for carpeting carpet layout/map • saves money and time • shows: • exactly where each carpet piece goes • yards of carpet used • where seams show • what areas covered

  3. measuring for carpeting carpet layout/map • labor charges determined correctly with clear map • show labor-intensive areas • determine carpet coving • pay special attention to seam placement

  4. measuring for carpeting measuring floors • ALWAYS take your own measurements • NEVER assume walls are parallel and of equal length • ALWAYS measure actual area • use rough sketch of room for notations • add a safety factor of 2 inches • carefully measure each wall, opening, door, closet, etc…

  5. measuring for carpeting measuring floors • measure each projection, jog, inset, and cove down to ½ inch • measure at least one half the way in existing doorways for seam • installer generally measures, determines lay-out and figures yardage but you want to have careful conversations about seam placement

  6. measuring for carpeting measuring stairs • easiest way—measure as if straight run from wall to wall • first: measure from hall to end of 1st step • second: measure first tread and riser from notch to notch—multiply this by # of stairs • third: measure width of stairs

  7. estimating carpet carpet rules—ALWAYS • write feet and inches with inches underlined • add 2 inches to each measurement for safety • run carpet grain in same direction • use same width goods • measure every wall, doorway, cutout, etc.. • avoid running seams into a focal point • avoid a carpet layout using multiple seams • avoid putting new carpet over old pad • remember carpet stretches very little—1-2 inches

  8. estimating carpet carpet formula • 95% of all carpet in US is 12 feet wide • never mix different sizes width of cut Xlength of cut /9=sq. yardage

  9. estimating carpet problem 1 problem 2 problem 3

  10. cost estimating materials— carpet, pad, possibly trim strips preparation— furniture removal, old carpeting/pad removal, floor repairs, door trimming clean-up— removing carpet scraps, tools & equipment, vacuuming

  11. time estimating • generally 10 days to 2 weeks • check if in stock & order product • expected ship date • contact installer • actual carpet installation time varies according to scope of project

  12. selecting carpet installer • seek referrals from carpet dealers, manufacturers and other designers • set up appointments—discuss specialties • ask for list of labor charges • request client references • contact references—write & file comments • make sure you visit site and make notes of work being done • pays to create good working relationship with installers
