rolls 6.5ft wide and over 8.5ft Long will need to be sent via freight at approx $150 (13ft wide by over 8.5ft) If shipping via freight it must be sent to a commercial address. Not a home business or home office. Must be commercial! otherwise a $85 fee will be charged by the shipper.
Q. Which way should the lines run?.
A. Typically the lines on the boat run lengthwise, from bow to stern. As you'd see decks made out of teak. Although this is not mandatory, totally optional.
Q. I have an old carpet i need to replace, how can get a quote?
A. Just measure the widest section of your existing carpet, across the boat from side to side. Then measure the length. from stern to bow. multiply them and times by $5.95. need help? email us those dimensions along with the approximate linear ft around the outside edge that will be bound. A picture or sketch is also very helpful. Once you're ready to order, send in your template or old carpet to our address provided on the estimate.
Q How do i get my three pieces of carpet I'm sending in to be cut and bound to all line up once installed?
A. Simply stick 3 strips of tape on the carpet or template in the direction of the lines along all three pieces then cut it at each edge. We'll line up the three pieces as close as possible to have continuous lines once installed.
Q. I have a large area of deck with table posts and deck hatches, how can i make a template to send in?
A. If your template is very intricate we may not except it. We will instead direct you to one of our recommended installers. This way the carpet is installed precisely and less chance the carpet needs to be returned to be adjusted.
Q. Do you install Snaps?
A. No the snaps must be installed on the vessel to ensure they line up. But we can provide them at $2 each
Q. Can the carpet be glued down in the interior of my yacht or does it have to be snapped down?
A. Yes, Teak carpet can be glued using carpet glue, if it is laid down wall to wall it may not need glue or snaps. Snaps are only necessary in windy locations or where it may slide. try velcro first if unsure about drilling holes
Q. I see there is no rubber on the back do i need to apply a rubber backing?
A. No, Teak Carpet is designed not to need rubber, It dries quicker as water can run through it. It also prevents mold not having rubber. There is also no rubber to peel away over time as you've probably seen in low quality carpets. There will also be no rubber mess stuck to your deck to clean off later.
Rubber backing can be added to cut and bound pieces at an extra cost. Its sometimes preferred for interior glossy floors or to add sound protection when installed over engine hatches. also adds weight to lighter small mats.
