Professional vs DIY Carpet Installation

Carpet flooring is still a favourite choice among homeowners. Although it’s not the most complicated flooring to install, do you really want to DIY, especially if it’s your first time?

Advantages of DIY Carpet Installation

The primary reason that we would usually ever look to do something ourselves is money!

You work hard to earn your money, so if you can DIY and save a few quid, then why not?

Give yourself a tap on the back.

The other advantage of installing carpet flooring yourself may be the feeling you get from it, presuming it all goes well, I mean!

There is no better feeling than working hard at something and seeing top results at the end. Especially knowing that you have done it yourself. Plus, if you hire a pro, you can’t blow your own trumpet when family and friends say “I love your flooring, who done it?”. 🤩

Disadvantages of DIY Carpet Installation.

Unfortunately, there can’t be pros without some cons, and in this case, there are probably more disadvantages from laying carpet flooring yourself as opposed to calling in the Dream Team.

What if it goes wrong?

Even Bob, the builder, is an amateur floor fitter. Your wife is going to say, “I told you so,” and if wasting precious time as well as money on materials wasn’t enough, you’re now sleeping in the dog house. Oh, and now you’re going to have to call in the pros anyway, to put things right.

What if it goes well?

Even if it all goes well, has it gone as well as it would go had you called in professionals, to begin with? Sometimes we can be blindsided by our own work, but you want people to notice your flooring for the right reasons, not the wrong.

Did it cost you more money?

Back to my first point, if you waste materials and end up calling in the dream team anyway, then it’s going to turn into an expensive project.

Professional vs DIY, what are you going to do?

Carpet is one of the cheapest floors to install, so why not hire professionals for the peace of mind and quality guarantee? It’s just not worth the risk.
