The Power Stretcher vs The Knee Kicker

Problem carpets must be restretched with a power stretcher, otherwise the waves will reappear within 6 months. In fact all carpets over underpad should be installed with a power stretcher. If a knee kicker is used for restretching and installations, only minimum stretching is attained. A power stretcher gives the maximum stretch output in order to provide a maintenance free carpet. Today's materials require power stretching because the backings are no longer made with jute (a natural fibre); instead they are comprised mainly of synthetic materials and as a result extremely stiff when new. After we come into your home with the Power Stretcher your carpets will finally have the stretch they should have had in the beginning!

A Few Words From The Owner

Why hire us and not our competition?


1st REASON: "You don't just want anyone in your home do you? Your home is your comfort zone and your security blanket. Who can you trust these days? "Us!" We are old-school in a lot of ways. We are a family-run-business with a high regard for values. When we enter your home we treat it as if it were our home; with a lot of respect. We don't hide behind a company name. We use our family name for our stamp of approval! We take great pride in the confidence and trust people have put in us over the years. All of our customers love us after we've been in their home."

2nd REASON: "The experience gained and the training received over the years. I was trained by an old-school European tradesman at a time when (a) you had to "hand sew" all the seams on carpet, and (b) when carpets were made out of wool; these rugs were very difficult to install and seam. I was taught it all—from the 70's shag rugs to plushes to berber. If you didn't do it right you were kicked off the job site. We have kept up with all the new trends of carpet materials. I have laid and fixed carpets from Ottawa to Vancouver Island. I've even installed rugs on boats, from runabouts to million dollar yachts. In cars, trailers, on walls, on ceilings, and circular suspended hollywood staircases. I have done it all and for a long time. You would think I would be sick of carpets after all these years but the fact is, I love this trade and get great joy out of seeing the happy faces of our customers when we repair/install their rugs. All our staff are either family or family friends. Like I said—we are old-school. Hire us and we treat you like family. I am looking forward to hearing from you."

Client Testimonials — Don't Just Take Our Word For It!

“We had to remove and discard a fairly big, irregular piece of the carpet and underpad in the basement due to damage from a sewer clog. Patrick did a wonderful job with the carpet repairs. Even though we didn't have enough material he went an extra mile and came up with creative solutions to ensure that the repair was as good as possible. The results absolutely exceeded our expectations and we were able to save quite a bit of money by not having to replace the entire carpet in the basement. We would recommend Patrick and The Carpet Repair Guys to anyone without hesitation. Thank you!”

“My dog ripped my carpet and Patrick was able to restore it to look good as new and for a fraction of the price as it would have been to replace the whole carpet! I am so pleased with the hard work and professionalism that was offered. Very friendly and I would recommend his service to anyone.”

Lisa Larocque
Barrhaven/Ottawa, ON

“I approached The Carpet Guys because we needed to have our carpets stretched in hopes of making it easier to sell our home. The Carpet Guys were very responsive and took care of everything – explaining the process and even arranging for furniture moving. The result was spectacular – we wish we had done this several years ago so that we had longer to enjoy it. It was like having new carpets. I found the experience to be extremely professional, and the price was really reasonable. I would recommend The Carpet Repair Guys to anyone who needs carpet repair.”

Georgina Coleman
Gatineau, QC

"When I called The Carpet Repair Guys there was an immediate answer by Mr. Pat Defazio, the owner of the company. This was a pleasant surprise, because my previous two calls to other carpet repair companies, I had to leave messages. He made an appointment to come and give us an estimate. Not only was he on time, 8:30 a.m., but after he looked at what had to be done and gave us an estimate, Pat asked when would we like the work to be completed. I explained to Pat that we were selling our home and our first showing was at 3:00 p.m. that day. I could not believe our good luck, because Pat said that he could do the job and have it done by 12:30 p.m. Well not only did Pat get the job done before 12:30 p.m., but he also found a couple of ways to save us more money. I would definitely recommend Pat Defazio to family, relatives, and friends. Thanks again Pat!"

Ray Crampton

"When bleach was dripped on our almost new carpet, we thought we were going to have to replace the entire carpet. Carpet Repair Guys came and replaced the spots with remnants from the carpet we had kept and it looks like new again. You can't even tell the difference. We wouldn't hesitate to use their services again!"

Jayne and Reg Milne
Orleans/Ottawa, ON

"Dear Patrick, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you did in repairing my carpet. Not only was the quality of the repairs outstanding, but you were also so professional and pleasant. I would highly recommend your services to anyone. I wish you all the best going forward with your business; you certainly deserve it. Thanks again."

"Dear Patrick, I am writing to let you know how happy we are with all the work you did in our home today! We were very impressed with the replacement of the carpets on our stairs, stretching, fixing of carpets in the rooms as they meet the hardwood and the spot in the basement that my VERY picky husband is now happy with. I would highly recommend you! Thank you!"

Terri & Scott Doucette
Stonebridge Estates, Barrhaven/Ottawa, ON

"Dear Mr. DeFazio, I wanted to thank you for a job well done. Dealing with you was a pleasure. I could not be more happy with the results of my carpet repair. You can't tell where the carpet was originally damaged. You exceeded my expectations with your outstanding level of service and professionalism. I would recommend your services without hesitation."
