Home improvement projects can turn into really costly affairs, with spending on home renovations expected to reach $327 billion in 2017. It makes sense that you’d want to do as much by yourself as possible to avoid spending money on professionals. There are parts of big renovations, however, that aren’t worth the risk or the stress of going it alone. Replacing old carpets or swapping wood or laminate flooring for carpet is a big undertaking.
Let’s look at a few reasons why you should hire professionals for installing replacement carpet.
A job well done
If you don’t have much (or any) experience with carpet installation, then a lot can go wrong. The last thing you want after spending time and money on renovations is to have an end result you’re not pleased with. By hiring a professional, you can relax knowing that the job is in good hands.
Save money on tools
You can’t get through a carpet installation with the regular tools you have in your shed; it requires specialist tools like a knee-kicker, tackless strips, and a seam roller. Buying or renting these tools for a one-off occasion is expensive. When you hire someone to install replacement carpets for you, you know they have the right tools for the job.
Save your time
What’s worth more, your time or your money? Sure, you may save a bit of money by going full DIY, but you’ll spend a lot of time and energy on completing the job. Professionals can get the job done more efficiently, saving you the time and hassle of doing it yourself.
How to keep costs down on professional carpet installation
If you’ve decided to hire a professional but are still working on a budget, there are a few things you can do to keep the costs down.
- Remove furniture – The room will need to be cleared before the carpet can be replaced. By doing this yourself, you can save money on having to hire professional movers or relying on the carpet installation team to do it.
- Dispose of your old carpet – Carpet installers may charge an extra fee for removing and disposing of your old carpet. Do this job yourself first to save some money.
