    Carpet Replacement 4087

    This past off season I decided that I was going to replace my flooring throughout my 4087. What I thought was going to be a 3 - 4 day project turned into a 7 day project! Ugh. :unsure:

    Given that the original carpet was old and tired, as well as the galley floor was delaminating due to some water damage from an unexpected refrigerator death I embarked on the process of tearing out all of the old carpet and flooring. The biggest part of the project was pulling out all of the old carpet, as it is heavily stapled and glued. In the end though, I won the battle and the Admiral couldn't be happier! (win in my book).

    Here is a before / after side-by-side of the old carpet / new carpet.

    Here are the pictures of the finished product. Added a small laminated floor section in front of the Master stateroom vanity as well. If you're wondering, I used 2' x 2' carpet squares from Home Depot and a box of laminated flooring from HD as well. The carpeting installs pretty easily, but you have to pay attention to the flow of the nap. There is an arrow on the back of each square that helps, but you'll want to mark up the back with a sharpie for your cuts so you don't lose track of the direction.

    FYI - while the 2x2 carpet is self-adhesive, you'll want to use glue and also have a good staple gun.

    Looks great!

    One of these days I will do this on our 3587, our carpet is still in reasonable shape.

    I do like the flooring done in front of the vanity in the aft cabin, that is a big improvement. It seems like it should have been that way from the start.

    Nice job.

      Agreed!

        Looks great. I didn't know there was such as thing as pre-glued 2'x2' carpet squares that fit together. I assume that is Home Depot's Simply Seamless line? I don't see any seams in your pictures either. Did you glue and staple everything or just at edges and stair nosings? Did ripping out the old carpet or installing the new carpet take the most time?

          You are correct. It is their "Simply Seamless" line of carpeting. The carpet butts together nicely and as long as you ensure you have a good tight fit, it really doesn't show. Ensuring your carpet nap is all going the same way is very important for this as well. I stapled at various stress points and used glue otherwise. The stair nose took staples and planning for squares / seams. Most of the time was spent on pulling out old carpeting and prep. There were places where I stapled at various areas in the field of carpeting, depending on location. I have an air stapler, which has a depth setting, which is very helpful.

            Great job Hooks and the stair steps look professionally done. Really like the color you selected as I'm sure it hides the normal smudges boats incur. Another great thing about using squares (like tile flooring) is to buy ample spares in case you need to replace a section due to a heavy spill or discoloring. A friend of mine with a 4087 had a local carpet company replace his original carpet and company certainly underestimated the labor involved of the removal since it was many man/hours. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

              Great job!

              When you removed the old carpet, did you sand or otherwise prep the floor for the carpet squares? Did you install carpet over any hatches? If so, how did you do it?

                Hey, sorry for late reply. Was locked out of the forum for a bit after the change.

                Anyway, the hatches on the boat are essentially the floor boards that pull up. Each one had to be stapled around the edges and trimmed. It was definitely a process. Many fit better now as well, as the old carpet was quite tired.

                As for prep, yes, I had to scrape and sand the floor in many places. The forward stateroom was the worst (ugh!).
