Due to size, shape and style differences, carpet suppliers will offer the customer an estimated time in which they can complete the carpet-fitting job only after they have measured the room or rooms to be fitted and ascertained any fitting problems.
CBL Floors say that, based on experience, the average time to fit carpeting varies from job to job and depends on the size of the team; however, a team can generally lay approximately 15 yards, or 14 meters, of carpet, including underlay, within one hour.
Expect the job to take as long as it takes, as it is not speed but the quality of the fitting which is important. Ask the carpet suppliers to give you an estimated time for fitting the carpet. As a rough guide, you can expect 15 yards of carpet to be laid within one hour.
