When it comes to the installation of commercial carpet, it seems like production is always the first thing on the agenda for many projects. It seems more often than not that the flooring installers are the ones who have to make up for the delays of a project, and they in turn get a shorter window of time to do their installations.
When a patterned carpet is being installed, the time it takes to match the patterns is often considerable versus non-patterned carpet. The need for educating the general contractor or end user to understand the time it takes to work with these types of products needs to be brought up prior to the installation of the carpet. If the type of carpet is already specified at the bidding stage, those bidding the work need to put the verbiage of the time it takes to install these types of carpets into their estimates and contracts. That way it’s been documented and can be addressed.
