Professional & Affordable Carpet, Vinyl, Laminate & LVT Fitted in Essex, FREE Consultation
Our customer required carpets for 3 bedrooms, a hall stairs and landing. The customer required a soft carpet for the bedrooms, and a striped carpet for the stairs and landing. After taking measurements, we went through several options to make sure the customer was happy, and would get exactly what they were looking for.
We priced the job with various options like uplift and disposal of old carpet, moving furniture to save the customer having to do it and the option of splitting the job over two sittings, so it wasn’t such an upheaval for the customer. Once the customer had decided on their carpet choice we prepared and sent them over a quotation. They were happy with our price and gave us the go ahead to carry out the work.
Next we ordered the carpet and underlay, and once they were delivered, arranged a date for fitting which was convenient for the customer.
In our dedicated cutting area at the rear of the shop, we used the precise measurements taken, to design the striped stairs and landing carpet to required size and shape. This process enables a faster, cleaner service on site. We first grippered and underlayed the bedroom, stairs and landing, applying new metals as requested by the customer. Each carpet was then placed in the appropriate area, taking care not to damage wallpaper and paintwork. They were laid out in order to relax and acclimatise before being fitted, and when this was completed, we turned our attention to the stairs and landing. These areas can prove slightly more tricky, especially where stripes call for extreme accuracy. Lines have to run parallel to banisters, skirting and door bars as far as possible – as no room is completely square.
Once the landing was finished we made sure that the stripes lined up perfectly and proceeded to fit the stairs. As always we made sure everything was clean and tidy afterwards. This successful project was carried out with the minimum amount of fuss, and after inspection the customer gave us the thumbs up!
