Went out to estimate for an interesting job. It's not in my
skills set, so I'm not really putting in a bid. But, I'm
Store has some nylon carpet at the front door, which needs
to be replaced. There are about 140 "tiles" which are 18
inches square. Much of the carpet is triangular area of the
floor. The edge of the carpet has black plastic, with
phillips flat head screw every foot or so along the edge.
The screws look fairly solidly rusted in.
So, the job is to pull the trim. Scrape all the old carpet
off. Dispose of the old carpet. Spread on some new carpet
adhesive, and apply the needed carpet squares. A lot of them
will be cut to shape, in triangle shape. Replace the trim.
Any idea what a job like this could cost? Any good web
sites, how to do all this? I suspect that a pneumatic carpet
scraper from Harbor Freight could pay for itself on a job
