More and more I receive calls from customers that own rental property that are looking for away to lower cost to fix up units to rent for the first time or in between tenants. Here is the question I get a lot. Do you think carpet tiles would be a good solution for me? It is not just a good solution, but it is a wonderful no-nonsense solution. The best part about carpet tile is it can be a cheaper cost than Broadloom (wall to wall carpet). It is a DIY job so you do not have to hire an installer and pay out a lot of cash for labor and materials. We know that contractors and installers most of the time mark up the material they use. With carpet tiles that money can stay in your pocket and that is a good feeling.
How easy are carpet tiles to replace? Well, say your tenants move out and as you inspect the place you notice that in the living area that there is a big grape juice stain on the floor (everyone’s worst nightmare). All you have to do is pull it up and put another one down in its place. That simple, thanks to the releasable adhesive. No need to replace the whole thing or stretch it again like with wall to wall carpet. That keeps money in your wallet for a longer period of time and that is what we all need. Carpet tiles are very durable and long lasting and have moisture and vapor barrier as well. This keeps your rental property safer from damage to the subfloor due to spilled liquids penetrating down to it. Less money you have to spend on floor repairs.
Over all carpet tile is perfect in most situations, like in the rental property business. They are cheap in price, easy to install, durable, long lasting, and a great DIY money saving project for most everybody including home owners, and small business owners. So if you are one of those people who like to save money and do it yourself then carpet tile is for you. Good luck and we will see you on the job.
