I'm planning to hire some area kids (20's) to help me pull up a wall to
wall carpet 12'X20'. Roughly how long do you think it'll take for two
boys to do this? I'm trying to plan the costs ahead of time. Thanks
I watched an installer do it at my previous house. He cut the
carpet into 2' strips (used a straightedge to make them square),
then rolled each section up and ran a line of duct tape around each
roll. He then made a "handle" out of the duct tape so he could
carry two at a time. Pretty slick.
I'm planning to do the same in the next few weeks, but about 6x the
floor of the OP (five rooms plus stairs and hall).
My guess is that it'll me more work moving the furniture around.
The kids will come in handy there!
If a standard carpet, one-half hour. That includes removing the tack-strips
(provide goggles) and filling in the holes.
If it's a glued down floor covering, I'd burn down the house before I
Actually, I just checked after my response. It doesn't appear to be
glued down. So I guess this won't be a problem. All I need to know is
if I can use the existing pad. It appears that it may have one there,
but pretty worn or a cheap one.
