What Kinds of Repairs Do CARPET REPAIRS ONLY Do?

Carpet installers install carpets and are not interested in “little jobs”. So I specialize in carpet repairs both small and big that others just don’t want to do.Cartoon Carpet Installer
So often callers to CARPET REPAIRS ONLY say “I have just a little repair”. Little repairs that no one else will do is what I do most of the time, and with a seven year guarantee given with every carpet repair or carpet re-stretch completed – you can be assured they are done very well!
The last thing anyone wants is to have to have the repair done a second time, likewise the last thing I want is to work for FREE!
With one quick phone call you will realize “Making you happy with your carpet” is all about you!

I look forward to talking with you soon,

A Knee Kicker Can’t Stretch Carpet Like A Power Stretcher

Power StretchCarpet Stretching
This carpet might have just been cut and laid down on the floor over the underlay, or the installer used a “knee kicker” utilizing the “bump and tuck technique”. Although the tape measure is not readable in the picture… four inches were power stretched out in one direction and two inches at right angle to the first stretch! There is no way a carpet should need to be stretched that much, and there is no way a knee kicker will stretch that much carpet in a room.
Only the proper tool – the power stretcher – can stretch a carpet properly, and that is exactly why I give a 7 year guarantee on each and every stretch completed. This couple in North Vancouver was very happy with the results and now can use two rooms that they had avoided entering because the carpet bothered them so much.
