estimating carpet

slide2

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
slide3

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
slide4

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…

slide5

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

slide6

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
slide7

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
slide8

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

slide9

estimating carpet

problem 1 problem 2 problem 3

slide10

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

slide11

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
slide12

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
