Carpet Laying Recommendations

By 19 February 2014 11

Hi,

Can anyone recommend any businesses/tradies who can supply and install new carpet in a three bedroom plus study house? Most of the recommendation threads appear to be on tiling/floorboards.

Thanks,

Ashley

Lemon’s in Fyshwick did a great job and a great deal for us.

Hi. We’ve had carpets laid in two houses now. In the first house we used Endeavour Carpets and I would recommend them highly. For the second house we went with Walker’s Carpets out of Belconnen and it was terrible. We laid the carpets right after the fires at Mitchell and found out later that the warehouse where they store the carpets was two doors down. No mention of this and still don’t know if the carpets are 100%. Not only this but the carpet layer they hired was terrible. He took a seriously long time and I even had to kick him out of our empty house at 2 am as he was sleeping there. We had to get someone back to fix the carpets 4 times as the job was done poorly and they kept sending the same guy. We finally got the job tidied up but now a couple of years later and the carpets are bubbling up at the edges of the room.
We only went with Walker’s as they had bamboo flooring and Endeavour didn’t stock them at the time. Next time I’ll stick with Endeavour regardless. You don’t know how good something is until you truly see how bad someone else could be. After two renos now my motto is if they did a good job for you before then stick with them and don’t try someone new just to mix things up.

I’ve used Lemon’s for several renovation jobs over past few years, mainly in investment properties but once in my own home, and I found them really good. Well priced, well organised, and they take direction well. A number of builders I know use them as well.

Hello RiotAct minds,
Has any one used B.M.S Floor Coverings 0401256721 or All Hard Floor & Carpet Installations 0404158489?
Care to share any feedback?

@mummy

Sounds like a terrible experience and not dissimilar to our own. Do you remember the carpet layer’s name? Were you ever able to remedy the situation or are you now stuck with poorly laid carpets?

Thanks :)

Hi Have had to do a bit of carpet laying lately. I have used J and M Floor Coverings in Weston Creek We have also had them lay laminate wood flooring in a few rooms of our own house . They did a great job. Lovely people. Only had one issue the guys that lay the carpet last time left a lot of carpet and underlay fluff and bits all through the area , 4 bedrooms and a hallway . I did complain , they were good tho’ and came straight way to check ,apologized and offered to send some one to vacuum the next day but I had tenants moving the next day so at 6pm I was vacuuming. I couldn’t wait to give them time to come back . Ron Firth in Yass is supposed to be good but he doesn’t do Kambah. I am currently getting an extra quote, for a property in Kambah,from Endeavor because interestingly, Ron Firth recommended J and M or Endeavor. I’ll try to remember to come back here and post how I went with this job for others.

We’ve just had 3 bedrooms, hallway, dining, and lounge carpeted. We took Genie’s recommendation and used Carpet One at Mitchell. They were fantastic and our house great. Brett, the carpet layer, did a wonderful job – he was so fast and we couldn’t fault his work at all. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
