What causes carpet to wrinkle?

Carpet wrinkles are the result of your carpet not being stretched in tight enough to prevent wrinkles from forming over time. All carpet installed over padding must be stretched in tightly from one wall to another using a mechanical tool called a “Power Stretcher” this tool is uses leverage instead of knee force.

How much does it cost to have your carpet stretched?

Your carpet stretching cost will depend on the age of your carpets and whether more than one room’s carpeting will require stretching. In most cases though, you can expect to pay anywhere between $40 and $80 for a single room and between $120 and $350 if all of your home’s carpets require stretching services.
