  1. 1. CHECK BEFORE CUTTING – Is the carpet the correct style, color, size, pattern, texture? Compare it to the sample and look for obvious errors.

    Ask the end user to check the material for a possible error in any of the items listed above.

  2. 2. All carpet must be cut with SHARP CUTTING EQUIPMENT to assure a clean cut and a smooth edge for seam sealing.

    All carpet edges (especially loop textures) must be sealed with an appropriate seam or edge sealer to prevent raveling. A non-sealed edge will eventually ravel causing the yarn to come out and the secondary back to delaminate.

  3. 3. After trimming the carpet for seaming, examine it carefully to be sure that you can make a good sealed seam that will perform.

  4. 4. Pad – for maximum texture retention, we recommend installation over a proper underlayment or pad such as a flat rubber (Tred-MOR 2580, 1562-2, or equivalent) or fiber cushion (synthetic felt) with a minimum weight of 40 oz/sy.

If there are any problems with the carpet that will prevent you from making a good installation, STOP the installation and report the problems to the Stanton Carpet Technical Department. 706.624.9385.

NOTE: All warranties and performance guarantees require proper installation and maintenance of the carpet. Claims against carpet cut and/or installed with obvious errors or defects will not be honored.

For more detailed installation instructions, refer to publication CRI-105-2002 STANDARD FOR INSTALLATION OF RESIDENTIAL CARPET or CRI-104-2002 STANDARD SPECIFICATION OF COMMERCIAL CARPET.
