Karastan recently hosted a woven and patterned carpet installation workshop at Star Flooring and Design in Wichita, Kan. At the end of the two days of hands-on, intensive training, the 13 installers on hand received Karastan certification. The designation shows that the installers have “the skill and knowledge to provide the ultimate in customer satisfaction,” said Jim Walker, director of installation training for Karastan, and president and CEO of Certified Floorcovering Installers.

During the event, Walker explained the different weaves in the Karastan line and showed how to perform the seaming techniques. Ed Braile, a Karastan instructor, demonstrated ways to identify and correct bow, skew, pattern elongation and edge deviation.
