How Do You Glue Carpeting To A Concrete Floor?

0

Laying carpet on concrete is a straightforward project that will add comfort and flare to any room in the house. Because the job requires very little carpentry and basic math, there is no need to hire a professional to do the job. Allot a day or two for the project and keep the concrete completely dry for two to three days before you begin the process. Laying your own carpet–if done correctly–will give you a professional result for an amateur price. All you pay for is the carpet and other materials. Evenly coat the concrete with waterproofing paint. Give the paint about 24 hours to dry and begin working, or more if it is humid when you start the project. Place several large fans around the room for effective air circulation. Cover the entire water-proofed floor with the plastic sheeting, using the duct tape to seal the plastic seams and tape around the border of the room. Make sure the duct tape doesn’t cover any trim because it will be visible when you lay the carpet. Split the room
