Manufacturing Tolerances

Most manufacturers provide established tolerances and specific installation instructions for their patterned goods.


Factors affecting pattern match on the job site include, but are not limited to:

method of installation

condition and levelness of the floor

type of carpet backing system selected.  


Alignment of patterned carpet typically requires the use of mechanical stretching devices (i.e. power stretcher, mini stretcher, etc.).
