Remove old carpet from the table that is to be recovered. For ease of removal use a utility knife to cut the carpet into 6 inch widths by scoring across the width of the table. Carpet strips can then easily be pulled away. Repeat removal of 6 inch wide strips until the table is free of the old carpet.
If your table is equipped with air check ball/chambers then remove the chambers before installing the new carpet.
Your new carpet will be supplied slightly oversized for ease of installation. Layout your carpet and precut to your desired size making sure to leave excess material to overhang each edge. Be sure the carpet is smooth and wrinkle free.
Using a scraper blade clean excess old glue or carpet debris from the table top surface. Failure to properly clean your table top will result in your new carpet being installed with lumps or bumps underneath the carpet covering.
Using a serrated tooth trowel spread a light even coating of Perfect Score Low Shear Adhesive on to the wood top of your table.
After spreading the adhesive over the wood table top position the carpet for the desired overhang on each table edge. Apply pressure to the carpet to make sure the adhesive becomes in full contact with the carpet. Pressure may be applied by hand, sliding a smooth heavy item over the table carpet or by rolling with weighted carpet roller.
When the carpet is smooth and snug to the table top then weigh down the carpet to allow the adhesive to cure. Weighting can be achieved by placing glass sheeting, particle board or sheet metal on top of the carpeted surface.
When the adhesive is cured cut out the openings for the ball check chambers and reinstall the chambers. To handle the excess carpet around the edges wrap the carpet underneath the table edges and staple.
