Who is responsible for trimming and adjusting my doors after new carpet or flooring is installed?


Here is a transcription, if you prefer to read instead:

“Door trimming is a subject that often comes up in the discussion when we’re doing estimates for clients. One of the things to take into consideration is the pile height of your carpet and the existing door lengths so that you don’t have doors that have too much clearance nor do you have doors that have no clearance when they go back on. What I mean is sometimes you can pick a long pile carpet. and your doors are not set up for that. So take that into consideration when you’re looking at your new carpeting because the padding and the carpet together, the new ones that is, could be so tall and your doors may be so long that you may have to have a professional carpenter come in or maybe a handyman come in and trim them.

Conversely, if you have a short nap carpet and a low padding, a thin padding, and your doors are set for longer pile, you could have a pretty good sized gap underneath that door. So please take that into consideration whenever you’re looking at flooring. Along with that, whenever people have bypass doors, what we call bypass doors, there are guides on the bottom of those doors that are often missing. We will point those out if they are and if you’re so inclined and you want to put new ones on, just let us know. We’ll take the existing ones off, we’ll put the new ones on, and that way you’ll have new ones whenever the job is complete.”
