I'm planning on placing a half wall in a room that currently is carpeted with berber. Under the carpet is a pad then concrete.
The half wall will be approx 10 feet long and 4 feet from the wall (red in rough drawing below). I don't want to put the wall over the carpet since one end will be free and I want maximum stability. My questions are do I need to put new tack strips around the wall and re-stretch the carpet over them? And are there any tricks that will make this easier and prevent me from messing up the way the carpet is laying?
