Case Study | Installing Carpet in a Fargo, ND Home.

LaValle Flooring Success Stories

There are a lot of factors that go into installing carpet that ensure it’ll look beautiful and last a long time. Installing carpet is part of our bread and butter, we hope this post helps see why! 

Prepping for Carpet

Floor Prep Was Crucial

A lot of installers like to say that carpet does not require prep, as it hides many imperfections. That can be true, depending on the project. However, these clients wanted Cali Floors Redefined Pine installed besides their living room, but they didn’t want a visible transition strip. They also wanted a unique curve instead of a straight line, therefore prep was crucial.

Floor Prep Steps: 

✅  Install a 1/4″ plywood subfloor underneath the luxury vinyl plank.

✅  Install luxury vinyl plank, tackstrip, and z bar metal.

✅  (Not pictured) Use cement to slope up to plywood floor to avoid having uneven spot in carpet. 

The prep was a little time consuming but as you’ll see, this lead to amazing results and very happy customers.

The Finished Carpet Install

Once all the floor prep was done, we could proceed with the carpet installation in this Fargo, ND home. 

What makes this carpet install unique?: 

✅ Most carpet stores in Fargo do not require their installers to use Z Bar as a transition. 

✅ When clients want a custom curve, either the installers tell them to change their floor to sheet vinyl and use a brass metal transition OR they simply staple the carpet to the subfloor. 

✅ Stapling the carpet to the subfloor voids your warranty and doesn’t give your carpet the best stretch possible. 

✅ Everyone’s furniture layout and areas of use are unique, these Fargo homeowners got more carpet in the areas near their tv and less near their couch. The areas near their couch is next to their dining room area, so it was nice having a larger walkway in vinyl plank. 

Installing this carpet turned out great, the customers were amazing, the products were good to work with, and we feel comfortable warrantying this job for as long as these Fargo homeowners live in their home.
