Seam Peaking

Another inspection of interest this week

Brand new build in Trigg, complaint of colour variation. Sure enough, when I get there you can see a massive difference from one side of the seam to the other

To the layman’s eye, it’s a colour issue

To my eye, it was a laying issue known as “seam peaking”

A seam not perfectly flat will cast a shadow on the side away from the light source, but you can change the “dark side” by changing the angle of light

So not a carpet fault, but a laying issue. Win for the manufacturer, groans from the layer who now has to redo the seam!

Got a carpet issue to report? Franco is your man!
