I bought my house brand new a couple of years ago and now i have
several areas in my den, living room, and parts of my master
bedroom)have bumps or wave-like lines in my carpet. I tried placing a
Yellow Page book on top of it for like a day or so, but it won't stay
down. What happened here? How do i smooth it out? Here is a pic.
Strange that this would happen to a relatively new house. Before i
bought this house, i lived in a 20yr old house for like 11 yrs and not
once did the carpet do this. I'm going to ask the builder to get this
corrected since they obviously didn't do a good job of stretching
this. Either that or i should send the bill to the builder. I'm not
too happy right now. Thanks for info.
Actually, I'd expect it to be more likely to happen in a newer installation
rather than an older one. The new carpet stretches... the old one has stretched
as far as it can and won't any more. Make sense?
This isn't all that uncommon and it's not hard to fix. Just get some carpet
guys to come out and restretch it. The next time ought to be the charm.

This indicates that the house is twisting, which is almost certainly
bcause the earth below it is twisting. Your city is due for an
earthquake, and it's good that you have this early warning.
Either that or what Charlie said, and he's a lot smarter than I am.
I'm sure he's right about ways to find a guy who will do it also, but
I wonder if you call the original carpet company, if they'll do if for
less. I"m curious how this works. The original owner here hired the
guys who did the carpet and kitchen floors, but I guess he bought the
house before it was finished. Other times, I guess the
builder/developer arranges for carpets, but even then, I'd ask him who
did the work. That way the guy might do it for you for cheaper, or
you'll know who not to hire when your parents need carpeting.
Once thing for sure. I'm not going to recommend this builder to any of
my friends or family if they decide to buy a new house in the future.
My mother also noticed some small cracks in the bathroom sink. Damn!!

The builder might have chosen a cheap carpet guy on purpose, but the
uncertainly about this would just pique my interest all the more, to
talk to the carpet guy and see what he'll do for you, and for how
If the builder installed the carpet, you don't have privity of
contract with the carpet guy. You don't have a legal relationship
with him, but that doesn't mean he won't want your good will (if he's
still in business, that is.)
There are actually cracks IN the sink? What is the sink made of?
Sorry, i'm not too familiar with sink materials, but i've captured
some pics. My photography isn't all that either. That's why i took
several pics with and without flash. One with flash and bathroom light
on. I wanted for you to see the cracks not just close to the drain,
but you can see it spread out further though not too noticeable in
pics. In person, much more noticeable. I know it can't be made of
porcelain, but some cheap material obviously. Any comments? Thanks
Those are stress cracks and they are usually caused by overtightening the
I don't know if they will get worse, but they shouldn't be there in the
