Installation Services

As a busy home or business owner, you likely don't have time to do flooring installation work on your own.

Here at Universal Carpet, we have a dedicated team of trained, knowledgeable, and seasoned professionals who will be able to take care of all the installation work for you when it comes to getting your new floors installed. The same crew will take care of the set up from beginning to end so that you have the comfort of knowing that the same team of professionals will be in your home or business at all times, should you have any questions or concerns.

  • Tiles
  • Laminate flooring
  • Luxury vinyl
  • Area rugs
  • Cork flooring
  • Bamboo flooring
  • Other specialty flooring

Carpets

Our team has installed numerous carpets in homes and businesses all over the area. That's to be expected after over 20 years in the business! When setting up your new carpet, we will tear out the old materials and install new carpet tack strips a slight distance apart from the wall. The edge of the new padding will be kept inside of the strips. If carpeted tiles are being used, we will be sure that they are all going in the same direction. When installing from a roll, we will be sure that if there are any seams, they are properly disguised and hidden so that your family, employees, or customers don't notice them. Measuring and cutting mistakes are common for people who try to install carpet on their own, but we make sure that we are accurate and precise when making measurements and doing any cutting so that we can quickly get the new flooring installed in your location.

Hardwood

Traditional hardwood flooring can last for over 100 years with proper care, so getting a new floor installed properly today can help to save you a lot of time, hassle, and money in the future since you won't need to worry about getting new flooring for awhile. This is a very meticulous job that requires expert carpentry skills. Before installation, it will be necessary for us to come out and take measurements of the room(s) that will be worked with. This helps to ensure that enough materials are ordered for the job. Prior to installing the actual hardwood materials, a subfloor will also need to be installed to protect the wooden materials from beneath.

Tiles

Tile floors are a very popular option for home and business owners alike. The materials are typically very easy to maintain, and there are a wide variety of styles available for purchase. Installation from our team will include accurate measurements of the areas where the tile will be set up. This will help to ensure that we have enough materials to finish the job. We will also be sure that the tiles are all going in the same direction so that nothing stands out and becomes an eyesore in the room. There are a variety of tiling options available, including vinyl and ceramic. Both are unique when it comes to installation, but we will be sure to discuss the process with you before starting any work.

Laminate Flooring

This laminate material is typically made from dense, pressed wood or particle board. There are some options available that even have a textured surface. This kind of flooring often comes in rolls, and our team of experts will know where to make cuts and where to seal the flooring so that there are not any noticeable seams or areas in the pattern that are "off." Following installation, we will also be sure to put everything back in place, and this includes baseboards or anything else that had to be removed prior to installation.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Often times, this is the flooring material of choice for bathrooms and kitchens. It is composed of a polyvinyl chloride material, and it can be sold in sheets or tiles. There is some misconception that vinyl flooring and laminate flooring are the same thing, but they aren't. Vinyl is made from synthetic materials whereas linoleum is made from organic materials. It takes the help of a professional to get your new vinyl materials installed properly. We will be sure that we accurately make measurements and cuts so that the flooring project can be finished quickly.

Area Rugs

We have a wide variety of area rugs, in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns available for your home or business. We can deliver the rug to your property and set it in place where it belongs. This may involve moving furniture out of the way, such as couches, desks, or tables.

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is made from bark that is taken from cork oak trees. It can be installed in tiles, and is made available in many different stains and colors. If you are a home or business owner trying to go "green," then this is the perfect option for you since cork is a naturally renewable resource. The cork in the trees will eventually grow back so there is no harm done to the tree itself. Prior to installation, we will need to be sure that we have a level surface to work with, and we will also need to be sure that the proper subfloor is in place.

Bamboo Flooring

There are special installation procedures that must be followed when working with this material. It is an environmentally-friendly flooring option and is incredibly durable. Installation is somewhat similar to the processes used for hardwood flooring installation, but there are some special procedures that need to take place to ensure that this bamboo looks great and continues to look great a week, a year, or a decade after installation.
