I understand you should use a hammer stapler to fasten down carpet padding. Is this a specialty carpet tool I should rent, or do they sell them at home depot? How much should I spend if I buy one? And do I have to worry about the size of staples? The old staples I am pulling out look small.
Also should I bother to get a carpet knife? All the carpet installer I've seen just use utility knives.
I will probably be installing carpet maybe twice a year
should be able to buy hammer tacker most places and I like to use a carpet knife...alot just use utility knife which will work.. prices vary I think mine was around 24.00 which i use for other purposes good investment...
