There is usually an additional charge for removing the old carpet and pad, installing carpet on stairs, special transitions, and custom work. 

 

 

5. How long do you guarantee your work?

 

Most carpet layers will offer a one-year warranty. Better installers will offer two years and some will even offer a lifetime warranty. 

 

If your carpet comes loose or develops wrinkles it is nice to know you can have it fixed or repaired at no charge. Be sure to get....
