Carpet Tile (by GA [GA]) Posted on: May 12, 2019 7:38 PM
Message:

What is the best method to install carpet squares when you don't know the specific brand/type of the carpet squares, and want to use one of the tape and/or "dots" methods?

Most of the tape or dots are specifically for a certain brand of carpet, and I cannot figure out what brand I have. I came across a deal on "used" carpet squares out of minimally used office conference rooms for $0.25/sf. The number printed on the back give no clue on the brand.

The unit will be empty this month, so I need to figure out the installation detail. I don't want to do a full glue application on the plywood as that will be a mess in the future if I need to replace the carpet or install a different flooring. --73.106.xxx.xxx

GA,

No carpet in rentals. Has saved me THOUSAND$$$, faster turnover, fewer repairs, no odor, and less stress.

How will you clean that for the incoming tenant? I don't do things like that since I want to get higher rents with new carpeting. I put some carpet tile in my foyer in one of my units. Just look for a grain and lay it out but it will curl if you don't glue it down and could be a tripping hazard. --173.61.xxx.xx

Have you tried googling carpet tile plus the number. It might come up. --98.146.xxx.xxx

@ BRAD: Its a condo that requires carpet in the bedrooms. Hall and LR can be something else but the carpet keeps things quieter.

@Ally: Carpet really looks brand new. Carpet tile can be cleaned after installed. I do plan to fasten the corners so it is not a tripping hazard but just looking for suggestions on a method that is not 100% glue of the entire carpet tile. If the corners are fastened it won't curl.

@Oregon: Yes - tried that before I posted - got nothing and am surprised, but nothing. --73.106.xxx.xxx

I have never taped them together. Just sqaured them off and been done with it. --99.203.xx.xxx

GA,

Is your condo above other condos?

Do they inspect the interior? Is there a fine?

I'd install a smooth flooring and buy an area rug to meet the HOA's demands. Carpet is the highest maintenance item in a home.

@ Brad: yes, above others, and yes they inspect. The "fine" for LL's is losing the right to rent. Not going to even poke that pig.

I'm going to just lay them in tight and see how that works. It will at least get them all cut and laid out and the place looking good. I think that is how they were originally installed as there is no evidence of glue on the back of these things - so much so if I did not know better I would have thought they were brand new.

If loose laid and tight to each other does not hold them down, I'll get some of the non brand name tape to tape 4 tiles together at the corners - I can do that quickly between showings. --73.106.xxx.xxx
