Seams in floor coverings – whether
we’re talking about carpet, resilient or tile – cause more concern for
customers and more potential complaints for dealers and installers than any other
aspect of a floor covering installation.
In my career as a retailer and an architectural sales rep, I can’t count
how many questions I have had to field about seams. Where will they be? Will they show? Will they last? Whether it’s a homeowner, an interior
designer, architect or property manager, it is a common concern. Seams are
probably where I have seen the most disappointment among consumers in all types
of floor covering products.
