If the room doesn't need to be perfect then this method would work just fine. This is a diy video and a power stretcher would be a rediculous purchase for a homeowner. Why waste so much money on a professional if this would work fine enough

Anyone who streches carpet in like this will highly regret it, I give it a month and the whole room will be an ocean with bubbles. As a carpet layer for over 10 years haha please take my advise and dont copy this hahha.

Good job, mate. As for those saying he needs a strecher, yes the carpet will wear and eventually have wrinkles. HOWEVER by the time that happens (15-20 years down the road ) the room would be ready for a makeover.

thanks for the video. Could you please provide the name of edge bar with the nails upright? and the installation layer? Thanks!
v8trauma (8 months ago)
Xiaofeng Li in the UK it's called gripper rod/bar and in the US its called tack bar. Amazon ship it in about 600mm /2ft lengths in a cardboard box. Alternatively the pros buy it in 3 and 2 M lengths.

Jeez the comments below are hilarious, people ready to kill each other over how to lay carpet. Maybe its time to start Carpet Cage Fighting, you have try and lay carpet while at the same time trying to beat the shit out of the other carpet layer who uses a different technique to you.

This is the most ridiculous and unprofessional way to install flooring! I've been doing brood loom for 26 years. We'd kick this guy down to the sweeper guy. Know what you're talking about before you post a video.

If you think this is how to do flooring... Call professional help. I'm a certified flooring installer and doing that take you all day I get that in a hour. For one you cut carpet in the room, for second carpet needs a better stretching.

If this guy was the most qualified carpet installer they could find I would be very worried about getting any advice from them or follow their videos. The smooth edge was good, if not a little big, and with no explanation on what to do around doors etc. Also, if kicker is in you right hand, don't kick with your left...

Sebastian Vanderboon (2 years ago)
Oh good lord. As a professional Trade Certified Flooring installer for over 10 years, watching this video made me cringe. Sub par tutorial gives little information on the actual process and theory behind stretching carpet, force needed in order to obtain required tension, and process for successfully stretching out a room of carpet to avoid future rippling/ bubbling issues. Do yourself a favour and get a professional to install your carpet. 99% of retailers offer a warranty or guarantee against faulty installation.

u aint shit bitch
Dylan H (1 year ago)
Maybe if you knew how hard of job flooring is you would understand why the price is high. good luck doing it yourself and having to re-stretch and it looking like shit. Call a professional if you want it done right.

+WILLIE WATKINS I hope you atleast rent a stretcher so you don't have to pay a pro to restretch it in 6 months

Kicks like a pussy
Awoken Dread (2 years ago)
i normally dont comment on videos but someone who has done carpet and other flooring installs for almost 20years this is a complete joke on how do install carpet. you NEVER just use a knee kicker (only on steps or a small closet). you HAVE to use a power carpet stretcher or it will never hold us to daily use. it will wrinkle and will wear bad. it really is best to have someone do it that has experience and even some of them are a joke. you will get what you pay for. you wouldnt build your own house unless you know what you was doing.
kegelmetimbers (2 years ago)
+anthony ketcham he did alright with the pad and tack although he wasted alot of pad. The carpet install was a joke though.

Just a quick tip if your working on a wood surface it's better to staple the underlay in before you trim in to prevent shifting and UN-needed frustration
RememberToday4ever (3 years ago)
Thanks for creating and uploading this very helpful video !
Joehan Ewen (3 years ago)
karl stewart (3 years ago)
That underlay would of moved on a concrete floor regardless of duck tape down the joints .Try using a blast of spray adhesive to secure it , just ring a reputable carpet fitter up and save yourself a bumpy ,lumpy ,saggy carpet that hasn't been stretched properly in the first place ! Talking 30 yrs in the trade here !!
Dylan H (1 year ago)
yep! you got to at least glue around the edges of the padding or it will move around...
karl stewart (2 years ago)
LegendLength (2 years ago)
Thanks for the quick help, will pick up a can.
karl stewart (2 years ago)
Tin of spray will secure it better then anything .just a blast of it to secure it .Tube glue drys hard .
LegendLength (2 years ago)
+karl stewart Does it have to be sprayed? I have some plain old adhesive in a tube and was going to try just smearing it lightly onto the concrete (hebel panel) floor.
mark howkins (3 years ago)
Wow fort your supposed to kick the kicker to stretch the carpet not tap it lol and one tip when you underlay don't let it bubble else your cut it to short
