After you have had your carpet for several years, it can begin to fray and show signs of wear and tear. Fraying is unavoidable if you have carpet, particularly at the seams where the carpet is joined with another type of flooring such as tile or wood. You can cover most of these seam areas with what is called a carpet bar, or a strip of metal trim that finishes off the seam, providing protection from fraying. You can find most supplies for this project at your local home improvement store and can probably complete this project in a few minutes.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Heavy duty scissors
- Measuring tape
- Carpet bar
Use scissors to manually trim the frayed carpet edge to match the height of the rest of the carpet.
Measure the area you need to cover with the carpet bar.
Cut the carpet bar to the correct size.
Nail the carpet bar to the area where the fraying has occurred securing it so the carpet will not become loose.
Make sure there are no protruding nails to injure anyone and, securely tuck in the edges of the carpet.
