I'm having carpet and vinyl floor installed by two different vendors. Which
one should I have done first? Does it make a difference?
One consideration is that I have a fridge, washer, and dryer on top of the
old vinyl floor, so they'll have to be moved during the installation. If I
do the vinyl floor first, then the appliances can be put on the old carpet.
But then I would have to wait 5 days for the floor to cure before moving the
appliances back, which means I have to wait 5 days before installing the new
carpet. If I do the carpet first, then I can have both installed on the same
day because I can leave the appliances on the new carpet. The disadvantage
is that I might get the new carpet dirty.
Any similar experiences out there? Thanks!
