First of all - installers are paid per sq/ft and rates depend on the product they're installing. I've been an installer for 10 years and I've never earned less than 75,000 a year. and I know guys that earn 150,000 a year. 10-20% goes to supplies. and the guys that make 150,000 a year often have one …or two apprentices working for them that they pay about 20K a year. Right now laminate installers earn about 2.00/sf and they install about 600 to 800 sf a day. I don't know any installer that installs less than 1500 sf a week. and the guys that do that, only work two or three days a week. Top earners are Tile guys. most of them earn +90K if they keep a 9-5 work day, 5 days a week. It's one of the lesser known trades. if you don't believe me, go to your nearest flooring store and ask them. it is a 2 year apprenticeship with an experienced installer, or there are some trade schools that are offering the training formally. this is not necessary, but if you can't find an installer to take you on, this is the way to go.

A ball will bounce higher rebounding from a hard surface like tile that from a carpet.
A tile floor affect sound transmission by making it loud. This isunlike a room that has a carpet which will adsorb sound and therebyreducing noise.
\nCheaper to install and has insulating features for heating, cooling and sound. Easier to change if you get tired of the pattern.
A tile installer is a laborer who installs tile. This can beceramic or linoleum or some other form of tile
Interlocking floor tiles are not preferable used over carpet. The best surface to lay tile or any other flooring product is on a firm and solid surface that out give. Carpet goes down when you step on and makes it so the interlocking tiles will eventually come unlocked by stepping on it. I would not… recommend that you install any type of flooring until your carpet is taken out. However if your looking for a good interlocking floor tile I would recommend Swisstrax. They have a great product. And they are great to work with. Sources: www.swisstrax.com www.bigfloors.com www.racedeck.com (MORE)
Scrape off carefully with a very sharp craft knife with blade held almost parallel to the floor.
I was once told passing a damp mop over a carpet clean as well as a vaccum cleaner. I never believed it until i tried. It rubs off trapped dust, brushes off bits of larger particles and gives a better smell to the carpet. However, I don`t know if this method,used on carpet tiles, would give the same… effect. (MORE)
Tile is better for 'wet' areas (kitchen, bathroom, laundry, entranceway) but carpet is better for 'dry' areas (dining room, lounge/living room, bedrooms, hallways).
It is possible to do but not a recommended practice Carpet tiles are designed to be installed over a stable surface. Even if you use one of the solvent based outdoor adhesives there will be some movement of one carpet against the other. This abrading will result in premature separation of the lay…ers and you will be constantly trying to re adhere sections of the floor as they come loose. The best procedure is to remove the existing carpet, prep the surface & then install the tiles. (MORE)
We have installed carpet on cermic a few times. Please be aware your grout lines will most likely show through into the carpet. The best option is to stretch the new carpet in over cushion. In order to do this the tackstip will need to be glued to the existing ceramic. Keep in mind you will want… to glue this tackstrip and let it dry for at least 24 hours prior to stretching in the carpet. (MORE)
not something you really want to do will be a big mess easier to pull them up then put the new carpet down so you have some concrete or plywood to put the glue on will be hard work to pull the tiles up but your new carpet will stay down longer
It depends on where the house is and who own it. In the northern Arabic areas tile is common. But most people in Africa are poor and floors are compounded dirt. Wealthier people can afford whatever they want
Yes you do or the new tiles may not adhere to the floor properly. After removing the glue, mop the subfloor with a TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) solution and allow to dry before putting the new tiles down.
I don't think folding is the right way to approach this transition. My carpet has a tack strip installed next to the tile and the carpet is cut so it lays right next to the tile edge. The tack strip holds it secure. There are also different joint transition trim pieces you can use if the height vari…ation is to great. Check out Home Depot or Lowes. (MORE)
Tile since loss of energy due to collision will be less compared to that on carpet.
It depends on what carpet or tile you're using. However as a teacher, my experience is, as far as efficiency and maintenance, tile is a much better option. It's much easier to keep clean and more sanitary.
Not really...for tile to be properly set it must be on a hard surface. A carpeted surface will not provide the hard surface needed for tile to properly bond.
Carpet tiles are moderatly high tech flooring, the install instructions are available from the manufacturer & that will include the allowable & recommended adhesives. Without any specifics, I can tell you that almost all recommend a "Pressure sensitive" adhesive, rolled on with a paint roller & al…lowed to dry to the touch before putting the tiles in place. Look in the yellow pages for "carpet installation supply" store & ask them for a price & spread rate. Expect to pay 30-100 per gallon for this wonder goo. It isn't cheap but it goes on thin. (MORE)
Some personal opinion here. I like the look of a nicely finished edge, without metal. There are aluminum trim & transition strips that make a nice fabricated edge, you can see them at any flooring store. As an old flooring installer in my younger days we were trained to turn & tack transitions a…nd not use the tacky aluminum trim. Just a personal preference. The turned under carpet takes a bit more craftsmanship, but there is nothing to keep the carpet edge from getting wet when the tile is cleaned. There is also the option of using a wood transition which can look nice too, all a matter of taste. The turn & tack I like is possible but much harder if the floor is a concrete slab, but if your installer knows about Z Bar you might have a good guy. it's an old timers trick. (MORE)
The simple term for it is Schleutter strip. There are several variations, but genericaly that is what its called.
If the tiles are down tight and the added height wont bother you, it is fine to go over the tile with carpet glued down or over pad. The installers will hate setting the tackstrip, but it is part of the job.. you are good to go.
Tile is a ceramic which is a better conductor of heat than carpet which is an insulator. In a very hot summer the tile will feel warmer than the carpet.
Up to 1.50 a square foot if you provide the Tiles and material, 1.50 is national average on the tile installation.
There is more friction on the carpet than on the tiled floor. Friction is a force that causes objects to slow down when moving. It occurs everywhere whilst driving, riding a bike and rolling a marble. On a carpet there is a larger surface area for the marble to rub against and this increases the a…mount of friction whilst the tiled floor has less surface area so there is less friction. Hopefully this answers your question :) (MORE)
A carpet is the same temperature as a tiled floor because the carpet contains air particles and that keeps heat in and tiled flooring does not contain air particles to keep the heat from your body.
i personally believe that snails would move faster on tiles because carpet is a rough surface and tile is a smooth surface... - lexii
If the carpet tiles you are using are the standard 12" square, then multiple your length and width to get the square footage. In this case your room would need a minimum of 196 tiles. CHeck the box for pattern repeat and remember to add tiles for damage and waste.
An average price for carpet tiles is difficult to pinpoint. It would depend on the quality of the tiles, which merchant you buy it from--so many factors are involved. I have seen prices as low as 1.49 from a discount store to over $4.00 at a brand name store .
Yes most carpet tiles available on the market are self adhesive or as the manufacturer's say "self-stick" tiles. They come in a great variety of colors and styles.
Use a thin blade - we used a wall paper scraper - to lift one corner. Once you have done that, grab the tile and pull. the wallpaper scraper also comes in useful in scraping off the leftover adhesive from the surface underneath the tiles.
Yes, there are step by step instructions you can use to install carpet tiles by yourself. You will have to carefully measure against the wall to place each tiles across your floor.
If what you mean by carpet sweeper, is a regular vacuum, then they can only be used on tile floors if they have a selection that is special for bare floors.
The ball receives more energy transfer from the tile than it does from the carpet.
ceramic tiles feel colder because it kind of takes the warmth from you but the carpet doesn't as it can 'store' heat whereas the tiles can't
It varies greatly from product to product and from market to market. The best way to get an answer is to put an ad on Craigslist telling what you want installed, the more detail you can give the better the quote will be... ie.. "3/4 inch, unfinished oak hardwood over wood subfloor, new const…ruction, 400 sq feet, need it done this week, paying cash.". . The lesson here is that the more detail you put in the ad, the better the quote.. You will have to understand that not every installer has Golden Hands, some are thieves & butchers, so you may not always want the low bidder.. (MORE)
carpet tiles are stored & sold flat carpet that is rolled out is called Broadloom & is usually 12' wide
Probably tile. It all depends on how hard you throw it and the weak/strong points of the tile or carpet.
18-in x 18-in = 324 sq in 324 sq in / 144 sq in per sq ft = 2.25 sq ft 2.25 sq ft / 9 sq ft per sq yd = 0.25 sq yd Answer = 0.25 sq yd
Probably Home Depot because they sell cheap carpet for only $3.25 per square feet.They even sell tiles for $2.12! Probably should go to Home Depot to buy flooring.
Permanent glue should always be used so that if you spill liquids on the tiles they won't come off. Along with permanent glue you should use wood glue so that the carpet tiles are firmly glued to the suitable surface.
