Forum Title: Kane carpet question?
We were recently called to repair a job on some Kane carpeting. It was in a theater room upstairs with a stage and two upholstered stairs. The original installers butchered the seams and the stage was loose as it could be without falling off. They ran the room and the stage in one piece in the width and the crease was nowhere near crisp and clean as it should appear. The two upholstered stairs were put back together at an angle on the side instead of a straight line! One of the worst I've seen in my career! We removed the stage and used it to repair the bad seam. Problem with Kane is that it does not row cut. We flipped it over and marked the pattern at every repeat, straight edged, and did the same with the other side. Seemed no matter how careful we were it still didn't turn out perfect. The rows are all bowed in the width so my question is:How in the world do you get a perfectly cut pattern in this stuff? Ours passed and she was thrilled but I am a perfectionist and it was not acceptable to me. We have worked with Kane a few times in the past and it's always looked fantastic

Kane is a very tight weave. Kane wants you to cut from the back following the chain link thread, seal and then seam with the Kool Guide. You can go to their website and watch the installation video. Robert Varden is the installer showing it. If you do have a length wiggle you still need to get it together and then stretch it out.
