Austin Carpet Repairs

It'd be nice to think that club soda or the sprinkle carpet cleaning solution from your local store could take care of every carpet stain or burn, but the reality is there are a number of instances where the damaged carpet itself will need to be removed and replaced. Fortunately, even irreparable carpet damage doesn't doom your entire carpet installation. Austin carpet repair professionals have made an art out of replacing sections of carpet. Plus, simple time and use can wear a carpet out, causing age wrinkles. When this occurs, it's time to get your carpet stretched.

Austin Carpet Repair: Re-stretching
Getting your carpet re-stretched isn't the most difficult project, but it's typically more than the average homeowner wants to deal with by him or herself. Naturally, the furniture must be removed, and the carpet must be detached from the baseboards, stretched in both directions, cut to length, and re-fastened. This process is similar to carpet installation. Re-stretching will prolong the life of your carpet, and increase its performance and safety. If you're wondering if your carpet needs re-stretching, go to the middle of the room and pull the carpet up from the ground. Similar to the difference on the skin on the back of a 30-year-old hand and a 70-year-old hand, if the carpet doesn't immediately tightly spring back to place, it's probably time to get your carpet re-stretched.

Austin Carpet Repair: Cut and Plug
Specific carpet damage, such as stains and burns, must be removed and replaced with a new section of carpet. Many areas can't be practically covered with a creative rearrangement of your furniture. Even Austin homeowners, who elect to take this approach initially, usually want a more permanent fix somewhere down the line. Hopefully, you have some spare carpet from your initial installation. Otherwise, you should be able to find something that's reasonably identical. In some cases, where older carpet is no longer available, you may need to put new carpet in an inconspicuous space and take a section of old carpet to replace the damaged area.

Cost of Austin Carpet Repair
Like many inexpensive installations, carpet frequently needs repaired; but these repairs don't cost as much as repairing, say, a hardwood floor. HomeAdvisor tracks all the home improvement projects we process, including Austin carpet repair and re-stretching services. Our tracking data shows the national average for carpet repair services is $215. Our numbers for Austin carpet repair are a reflection of this average, showing a range between $100-$400, depending on the nature and size of your project.

Project Length
Project length is something homeowners are concerned with no matter the size of their home improvement project. Be it six weeks for a full kitchen remodel or a single day for carpet repair, homeowners want their home looking its best now. Fortunately, no carpet repair project takes long to complete. As long as you're able to provide an accurate description of the carpet damage or wear, it shouldn't take longer than a few hours to make the repair. On the other hand, if budget is a bigger concern, you may take an extra few days to shop around for an Austin carpet repair contractor. Another great way to reduce cost is to offer to move the furniture yourself for carpet re-stretching, or at least mention that you can help move furniture so that only one contractor is needed to complete the job.
