How to remove and replace baseboards - Capell Flooring and Interiors


Justin Phipps and Matt Capell with Capell Flooring and Interiors give some quick tips and advice while removing and baseboards to make that process a little more successful for you on your next project.

One quick note - if you have finish nails stuck in your base, it is best to pull the nail all the way through the baseboard rather than go back the way that they originally went in.

How wide do carpet rolls come from the mills? Capell Flooring and Inter...




Hi, Matt Capell here with Capell Flooring and Interiors here in the Boise, Idaho area. Hey, so we had a question come up last month, and I thought I'd address it in another FAQ. So the question was, how wide does carpet come when you purchase it? And so if you look here, I wrote how wide does carpet come? So I would say with carpet, the standard roll size is 12 feet wide. And so I would say, I'm guessing just from my experience of doing this my whole life, I would say probably close to 98% of carpet made in the USA comes in 12 foot wide.
You can get carpet 12 foot wide by any length, up to a certain point, because if it was 300 feet long, sometimes that works, but it can get really heavy. And so usually a standard carpet roll is 12 feet by anywhere from 150 to 200 feet long. Okay. So that's a standard roll. Now carpet, sometimes you can get it in either a 13x2 width, sometimes a 13x6, and sometimes a 15 foot by your length. Now, most of the styles that come in width like this, usually are foreign and made like in Turkey or other areas. If you have a 15 footer, usually some styles that are like plushes or berbers that are harder to seam, sometimes you can get those carpets in 15 foot, but it's really rare.
But there is a few styles that we have here that you can get like that. But you're very limited on selection, because 15 foot rolls are, one, they're going to get really heavy and then they're harder to transport. And so it's just something to be aware of and because of the nature of it being standard 12 foot. So if you have a room that's like, Oh, I don't know. Let's say 16x20, you are going to have to put a seam in that room. There's no way around it. They're not going to custom wide the width for you because that would make the manufacturing process a tedious, slow. And it would up the cost significantly if they were just making little pieces.
So like in the case of this room here, just to combine thoughts, basically with carpet math, you'd need a 12x20, and then you're left over there as a 4x20. So there's a couple of ways around that, but basically what you do you'd need seems to do that. And so that's one thing we discuss with you is how many seams and what you want. If you did 4x20, if you were to draw this out in a room, basically you'd have your 12 foot piece here. And then you just have to decide how many seams you want in it. But with most carpets that are like long and have movement to them, it's not a big deal. These are called T-seams.
And with a carpet installer who knows what he's doing, that's not a big deal. So then you would just take this amount here, and divide by three or divide by two, depending on how many seams you want. Add that to your total and then you'd know how much carpet to order. So, but yeah, it's just kind of interesting. So this question came up, so we wanted to put it on our FAQ page. Most, if not, I don't want to say all, but most like a high, high percentage come in 12 foot width. But that's something we can definitely talk to you when we do one of our design audits or things like that.
If you have more questions on layout, we can tell you exactly where the seams are going and why. And if you want more of them or less of them, just depends if you want to buy more carpet or not, and have a higher waste factor. So, but yeah, you can get these widths, but it's really rare, and you cannot custom do your width. It's just one of those things with the manufacturing process. So hope this helps. If you have any questions about it, please comment below, and I'll definitely answer them for you. And appreciate you taking time to watch this and have a wonderful day.

Advice to Your Younger Self | E-Neighborhood Advisor


When author Mark Manson turned 30, he asked readers age 37 and over what advice they would give to their 30-year-old selves. He received more than 600 responses and the same pieces of advice came up over and over again. Here are 3 of the most common replies.

Start Saving for Retirement Now, Not Later.

The most common piece of advice — so common that almost every single email said at least something about it — was to start getting your financial house in order and to start saving for retirement… today.

There were a few categories this advice fell into:

• Make it your top priority to pay down all of your debt as soon as possible.
• Keep an “emergency fund” — there were tons of horror stories about people getting financially ruined by health issues, lawsuits, divorces, bad business deals, etc.
• Stash away a portion of every paycheck, preferably into a 401k, an IRA or at the least, a savings account.
• Don’t spend frivolously. Don’t buy a home unless you can afford to get a good mortgage with good rates.
• Don’t invest in anything you don’t understand. Don’t trust stockbrokers.


Start Taking Care of Your Health Now, Not Later

We all know to take care of our health. We all know to eat better and sleep better and exercise more and blah, blah, blah. But just as with the retirement savings, the response from the older readers was loud and unanimous: get healthy and stay healthy now.

Don’t Spend Time with People Who Don’t Treat You Well

After calls to take care of your health and your finances, the most common piece of advice from people looking back at their 30-year-old selves was an interesting one: they would go back and enforce stronger boundaries in their lives and dedicate their time to better people. 

People typically struggle with boundaries because they find it difficult to hurt someone else’s feelings, or they get caught up in the desire to change the other person or teach the other person to treat them the way they want to be treated. This never works. And in fact, it often makes it worse. As one reader wisely said, “Selfishness and self-interest are two different things. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.”

Here is an example of why you should NOT buy flooring/color from a Monit...




Hi, Matt Capell of Capell Flooring and Interiors. Hey, so I got a quick tip for you. So with flooring, sometimes people try to shop online and purchase online or from a monitor, from a computer or from a phone or a tablet or something, so that can be problematic. So here I got some commercial samples here.

Here's the actual physical sample, and it was an older style, and so the Carpet Mill sent me a picture or a photocopy, and if you look here, this kind of simulates what happens when you buy from off a monitor. The monitor and the pixilation and different things in the settings can make it look way different than what it really is so if you look really closely, you can tell that these are supposed to be the same, but at the end of the day, when I got this paper copy of the actual thing, it does look way different.

This darker color looks a little bit more charcoal, and this one, it looks a little bit greener. And I saved these because I thought that this showed a great example of why it's really hard to buy flooring from a monitor. It's always best to get the sample from the store.

Here's another example they sent as well. If you look here, basically, this kind of lighter color's way more dominant in the paper version than on here. And so my suggestion would be, is to make sure to go to the store itself. You know, if you're here in the Boise area, come see us. And if not, yeah, you'll avoid a lot of headaches if you try to avoid buying from a computer monitor versus in person. Thanks.
