Our carpet stretching services are one of the most requested repairs in Toms River. The process of restretching is detaching the carpet from the tack strip. Then stretch from one end of the room to the other, reattach to the tack strip, then cut off the excess carpet. This results in a much tighter stretch, which will remove wrinkles, buckling, and waves. Most importantly, a power stretcher is always used for stretching carpet.
