Karastan Carpet Installation Techniques

This is an almost fifty minute, ten part video produced in the early 90’s. It was originally distributed on VHS and has been remastered for the internet by FindaFloorGuy.com. It is an overview of the Karastan Professional Carpet Installation Certification and includes tried & true techniques that are still relevant today. The CFI certification program and those that followed sprung from this program. This piece of history has been preserved to guide future generations of carpet craftsmen and it is yours for no money when you join the movement at FindaFloorGuy.com.
