Step 1

“gripper is the most important part of the job” Alans favourite phrase and he’s right the distance of the gripper from the skirting board is relevant to the carpet being installed how many times do fitters leave gripper down from a previous and different thickness of carpet – not a practice we encourage. Remember gripper is what holds your new carpet in place and keeps it under tension.

Step 2

Like gripper correct installation of underlay is paramount as Alan is NICF trained everything is fitted correctly. In this picture we see the correct preparation of a staircase underlay fitted fully from gripper to gripper most fitters fit underlay on the stair pads only which not only is incorrect but would affect a manufacturers guarantee should a problem occur.

Step 3

Perfect preparation makes for a perfect finish the carpet is under even tension looks neat and ultimately will last longer.
