In order to properly install carpeting, you'll need a number of expensive tools, such as a seaming iron, knee kicker and carpet stretcher, to name a few. Unless you're going to install a lot of carpeting over a long period of time, it makes more sense to rent the tools to save money. Home improvement stores, such as The Home Depot, along with rental stores, such as RentalMax, will rent you the tools as long as you have the proper personal identification.
