Re-Stretching

The only lifetime stretching warranty in Dallas

Many of my clients ask how & why is their carpet buckling and rippling. For that question, there are several answers but the most common reason for a carpet needing to be re-stretched is poor installation.

Poor installation you ask? Indeed. Unfortunately, too many carpet installers use shortcuts these days and power stretching during installation is the worst shortcut possible. A power stretcher is a heavy tool that requires setting up and breaking down in every room. A step that many installers would rather avoid. At Dallas Carpet Repair always stretch your carpet with a power stretcher, always. Otherwise, we could not offer our lifetime guarantee.

The other reasons for buckling aren’t as common but they include things like allowing your home to exceed 85 degrees inside. This usually happens if you rent your home and it sits unoccupied for a time with the AC turned off or too low. The same is true obviously when homes for sale are left in the same condition. Another common cause is making the mistake of sliding heavy furniture across the carpet. Regardless of how it buckled one thing is always true, it’s unattractive and left untreated for very long will only make it worse. After time you will begin to notice that not only are the ripples getting bigger but they’re darker or dirtier and this is because of the fact that rippled carpet is raised above the flat surface of the rest of the room and that creates a rub mark from the soles of your shoes.

The worst potential part of rippled or buckled carpet is the fact that they create a trip hazard and if you have ripples in your business then that is also a potential lawsuit waiting to happen. When you notice ripples beginning to form or even if you’ve been looking at that thing for months or years just remember, we can restretch your carpet in no time and return it to its original glory.

What is involved in re-stretching my carpet?

Well, first we ask that you move those pieces of furniture that are in the rooms that need stretching. Carpet should NOT be stretched with furniture in the room as the furniture will create stress points that damage your carpet.

What if I am unable to move my furniture?

We have that covered too. We have partnered with to provide you with a safe and affordable method of moving your furniture. For $86 an hour they will move your furniture out of the room we are stretching and will move it back when we finish. For most 2 room stretches we can get it done within an hour.

How much should I expect to pay?

Simple and straightforward, $0.75 per square foot with a $180 minimum for any one room.

Is there a warranty?

You bet there is. DCR will warranty your stretching for the lifespan of your carpet. Carpet has a 10-year lifespan according to your manufacturer. To determine our warranty just deduct your carpets age from 10. If your carpet is past its lifespan we will still give you a one year warranty and by the way, our warranty is transferable in the event that you’re selling.
