Okay, having a semi long haired 80lb dog, I am really wanting to get the carpet out of here and am seriously leaning toward linoleum. Since I couldn't talk my friend into it while I was hanging around my home town, looks like I might be doing it my self.
I have never done anything like this before, but I remember a thread of a woman who did her own. I have read about the difficulty in removing the carpet...do I need special tools, if so, what kind?
I also read about the stretching effect, I believe, I need to know all about that I figure.
What parts do I need to remove from say the door frame, the metal stripping under the side dinette, etc?
Is this too big of a job for someone who has never done it and considers herself mostly helpless in these situations?
OR...is there someone on here willing to do it for me
? Okay, probably not, but I had to ask.
I have kind of priced the linoleum and besides the work involved, if I mess it up the materials are very inexpensive, so I figure if the rest of the job isn't too complicated, I might be willing to pull it off. (though I am still open to someone doing it for me of course
Any help would be appreciated very much as this carpet is thoroughly getting on my nerves...thanks to all who take the time to reply. MM
