How Much Does Carpet Stretching Cost?

Over time, your homes carpet is sure to see plenty of wear and tear, especially in the rooms with high traffic areas. The carpets pile can be worn down, and you can also expect to see staining. While these issues can easily be remedied with runners and decorative area rugs, when your carpets become unfastened or wrinkled, it can be a more difficult problem to disguise.

It is highly recommended that you compare at least 3 estimates from professionals in your area and then check their references if you require some carpet stretching to be done. This will ensure you have a chance to weigh up your options and make an informed decision.

How Much Will It Cost To Stretch My Carpet?

  • On average, your homes carpet stretching can cost around £77. This will include the labor for your professional to complete your project. You may consider trying to complete your carpet stretching yourself, but it is important to consider that this will potentially end up costing you more money than it would if you were to hire a professional.
  • This is because there are special tools that are required to complete this project properly. These tools can include a power stretcher as well as a knee kicker, tack boards, and more.
