I am in the process of installing carpet in the basement. I am using a carpet that has an attached pad, yeah not the highest quality stuff but it will do the trick.
When it comes to cutting a seam, laying one piece on top of the other and cutting them both together is nearly impossible because the thickness of the 2 pieces is about 1.25 inches.
Also, this stuff cuts really sloppy when you cut it from the top down. I am having better luck flipping it over and cutting it from underneath. Still when it comes to seaming the stuff, I'm not getting the best results because I have to cut the 2 seams separately and then join them.
The 2 doorway seams I have done so far turned out OK but you can still see the line no matter how much you try to hide it, and I do have the joining pieces turned the same way so the knap is consistent.
Can anyone offer any suggestions? I have one 8 foot seam in the middle of a walkway that I would really like to hide and I am holding off on that one hoping for a better way. Thanks.
