Although carpet padding is largely out of site and out of mind, it is the unsung hero of any carpet install. The right carpet pad protects your carpet from wear, adds unmatched comfort to any room, acts as insulation, and can even extend warranties. Carpet Express also stocks many inexpensive pads that are equipped with moisture barriers that prevent spills from reaching the subfloor.
Our general recommendation is to use a 7/16" 8 lb. rebond pad for residential cut-pile carpet, a 3/8" 8 lb. rebond for berber and a 1/4" 8 lb. rebond for commercial carpet. In many applications, it's best to glue commercial carpet directly to the floor. If you have any questions about which pad is right for you, please give our experienced sales staff at 800-922-5582.
