M Lynch Contracting- Carpet layer

I've had over 40 years off and on in the carpet laying trade, so use the tried and true "Old School" methods- a power stretcher is always used to ensure no wrinkles after installation, and seams are pre-sealed before joining for a strong result. I guarantee my work, I'm not the fastest but you will be happy with the result.

My speciality is rental property installations, I can supply carpet, underlay and accessories at good rates, free measure and quote. I like smaller jobs around 25m broadloom total or less, and can also do garage carpet supply and installation direct stuck. I can show you samples of budget to mid- price carpets and can usually complete the job within 2 weeks of notice, but not always possible. 

I have just purchased a Kool Glide Iron for small repairs, this enables me to make very small patches in the middle of rooms that would otherwise be difficult. (see pics). I also specialise in relaying carpets in flood restoration jobs where the shampoo companies "float"  the carpet to dry it. 

My main areas are Hamilton, Huntly and surrounding Waikato/King Country/Thames areas, I don't work in Auckland north of Pukekohe. I  do many re-stretches, seam repairs and damage repair jobs, but large relays of second hand carpet are not preferred. I will lay supplied materials or you can purchase through me, see some prices below.

Sorry, I don't do any vinyl laying, planking or major floor prep or sanding.
