Now, installing your carpet as a DIY project can seem like an attractive prospect at first, because cutting out the cost of labor would equal a savings, no doubt. However, the simple fact of the matter is that there is a lot that could go wrong, that could end up costing more than simply hiring some pros to get it done properly. If the extent of your carpeting experience doesn't go much further than Googling "carpet warehouse near me", you might want to reconsider going it alone.
A quality carpet install requires more than a few specialized tools that the average homeowner is pretty unlikely to own. Some of these tools are extremely expensive to buy, and renting them presents problems of its own. Rental tools are not always in the best condition and are far more likely to malfunction, or act quirky in some way. Without the experience of how to deal with this sort of problem, things could go South really quickly.
Even if you are comfortable paying to acquire the tools needed to get the job done, you might not have the knowledge of how to use them properly. Even simple things like a tape-measure are useless, in the hands of someone who doesn't know how to measure a room for carpet.
Safety is also a concern. A quality carpet installation team has the knowledge to operate some of these rather dangerous tools without getting hurt. Things like rollers, carpet stretchers, and heated implements, can be very dangerous if not handled properly. Which brings us to our next point...
Considering all of the things that can go wrong on a job, even ones performed by professionals, it's a good idea to have yourself covered legally. In all likelihood, you're going to need a little help from friends or neighbors to accomplish the job yourself. What happens if there is an accident and somebody gets hurt? What happens if part of the job is botched? Will you be covered in these eventualities?
Hiring a professional team offers a layer of insurance in the face of such events. If a worker is harmed on the job, they have workman's comp. If the workers botch something, you have legal recourse. The importance of these factors cannot be overstated.
