Common Questions

What do I need to consider when laying Plus7 on stairs?

Tretford Plus7 broadloom is unusually hard-wearing. Use tretford stair profiles to protect edges that are subjected to extreme stresses. For further information, please consult the carpet laying guidelines for Plus7.

What do I need to consider when laying carpet over underfloor heating systems?

When laying tretford continuous carpet over underfloor heating, make sure the entire surface area is glued down. Observe the supply temperature of the heating system.

An electric underfloor heating system, for instance, has a supply temperature that is too high, which is why tretford carpet is not suitable for use with this type of system.

Ensure that there is sufficient relative humidity during the heating period.

Please note, that the Plus 7 tiles are not suited for underfloor-heating.

What do I need to consider when laying PLUS 7 carpet tiles over larger areas?

For larger areas (over 30 sqm), we recommend using a suitable fixative. Please observe the respective processing guidelines of the manufacturer.

Are the seams obvious when several carpet webs are laid side by side?

It is not possible to prevent a slight seam when laying several carpet webs. In principle, the webs can be laid side by side along their factory cut edges. Superior results can be achieved by laying each carpet web in the opposite direction. A double seam cut creates a particularly neat seam. As a rule, it is virtually impossible to perfectly align the individual ribs in two webs because the carpet shifts slightly as the glue dries.

Usually the seam is quite noticeable right after laying when the room is still empty of furnishings. In our experience, this appearance soon diminishes due to the traffic on and use of the carpet. With time, the ribs "settle" and the individual fibres become overlapped. This conceals the seam somewhat so that it is less noticeable. It is, however, not possible to make the seam completely "invisible".

What do I need to consider when laying the carpet tiles?

tretford carpet tiles were specially conceived so that they can be laid in a checkerboard pattern.  Owing to its surface structure, it’s not possible to achieve perfect crosshairs for alignment in the middle where the 4 tiles meet.

The tiles are self-laying and are laid wall-to-wall. They should not be glued in place and adhesive tape must also be avoided as it is not possible to count out a reaction between the tile backing and the adhesive tape.

Does tretford have to be glued down?

The entire surface area of the continuous carpet should definitely be glued to the sub-floor with a suitable carpet glue in order to guarantee the full 5 year warranty. Careful preparation of the sub-floor is essential for optimum results. Please also observe our detailed carpet laying instructions.

Why is broadloom carpet only available in a width of 2 metres?

Owing to production factors, it is not possible to manufacture tretford carpets wider than 2m. The  advantage is this width is that the carpet rolls can be transported more easily in stairways, for example.

Can tretford also be used in cellar rooms?

Prior to laying tretford carpet, regardless whether carpet tiles or continuous carpet, ensure that the sub-floor is absolutely dry, level and free of all grease and dust. It is essential that a moisture barrier be added prior to laying the carpet in damp cellar rooms to prevent the carpet from warping.
