Installation of your flooring is as important as your floor itself, and while many products can easily be installed by a handyman - carpet (other than foam back carpet) should really only be installed by a professional. Please don't attempt to install it yourself.
That being said, for those who are interested in understanding how a carpet is to be installed, here is the full document from the Carpet & Rug Institute. Please note that you NEED to use a Power Stretcher for a carpet to be warrantied.
And here are the requirements as per our different suppliers.
