Carpet Seaming

Seaming carpets can be done for a couple of reasons:

  • You're creating an over-sized area rug or carpet runner from the same roll of carpet.
  • You'd like to put end-caps on a runner to complete a border on two-ends.
  • You have a unique floor shape to fill with a custom shaped carpet.

When seaming carpet, the general procedure is to make the cuts where the carpet will be seamed, latex the edges where the carpet will be seamed, then using seam tape and a seam iron, making the carpet seam. Seams are not represented as being invisible. If you are concerned about seeing a seam line, DWP Carpet Binding reccomends that you opt to buy enough carpet for your space as needed without a seam.
