When I arrived at this carpet repair job, the customers were a couple of seasoned citizens. The wife took great delight in showing me where her husband spilled ink all over the carpet.

I explained to them that because the carpet was right in front of the window, that it may have faded a little bit and because of that, the patch of carpet that they wanted me to use to do the carpet patch with would be a slightly different color.

The backing of the carpet needs to meet up exactly. No gaps, no overlaps, no problem.

Some final trimming and then I'll be ready to glue it all into place using my Pam Glue Gun and seam tape.

I always leave the glue gun on top of something that won't be ruined if it happens to drip.

There's more than one way to cut a patch to fit, this is my way.

The first three sides have been attached and there's just one side to go.

Here I am using my carpet tractor to push the glue into the back of the carpet.
