Cove Base Installation

Another service we offer is cove base installation. We can install or remove any cove base whether its one room or an entire building Rob and his crew can get the job done at an affordable price.

What is cove base?

Cove base is a type of trim that is installed along the base of an interior wall where the wall meets the floor. It is primarily made of rubber or vinyl and is used to protect the base of a wall from damage and to provide a finished and more aesthetically pleasing look where it is installed. Vinyl and rubber molding is often selected over traditional wood baseboards because it is typically less expensive and is generally easier to install. Extremely versatile, cove base is manufactured in a variety of colors to match most interior color schemes. It is sold in rolls or cut pieces of differing lengths.

Carpet Restretch

One of the services we offer to the southern Connecticut area  is known as a carpet restretch.  Over time carpet may become loose and begin to wrinkle and create what appear to be waves where the excess carpet has least resistance. Using our set of special tools and skills we are able to stretch the carpet and remove the excess carpet, allowing the carpet to relax.  Below are some examples of a carpet restretch.Robs carpet service retretch b4Robs carpet service st afRobs carpet service re-stretch b4 2Robs carpet service re-stretch after 2Robs carpet service re-stretch b43Robs carpet service re-stretch after 3

Carpeting after flood prevention

    Our customer in this job was having problems with water seeping into their basement so they have a flood prevention system installed but this system ruined their tile floor around the perimeter. Making the best out of a bad situation our customer decided to have carpet installed. The only problem was they wanted padding underneath and since that requires nailing tackless strips around the perimeter (which would damage the flood prevention system) our customer thought they could only have a carpet glued down. We explained to them it was possible to have padding we just have to glue the tackless strips down a few days before installation of the carpet.

        A few days later we returned to complete the installation. First we installed a special water resistant padding, this helps stop any moisture from rising into the carpet.

Of course after the padding came the carpet.

This job did have a seam so after one side was completed we moved the furniture and began work on the other side.

     After the seam was complete Rob finished the rest of the carpet installation.

Water damage repair work

In this case a busted pipe decided to try to turn our customers basement into an indoor pool luckily the water was stopped before it soaked through the entire carpet. We started the job by folding the carpet back up to where the water reached and removing the padding underneath which held most of the water.

Once the carpet was fully dried (usually within a couple of days) we returned and replaced the padding which was removed earlier.

With the padding replaced we began the re-installation of the now dry carpet.You’ll notice that the carpet has ripples in it from the drying process, this is where Rob’s expertise comes into play. Using one of his specialized tools called a “mini stretcher he is able to stretch the carpet as tight if not tighter than the day it was first installed.
