What type of carpet padding and thickness do I need?
Carpet pad is extremely important. If your carpet padding is too thin, your carpet will wear faster. Then again if your carpet padding is too thick, it will allow ripples to occur over time. The best way to select good carpet padding is from the style of the carpet.
Valvano Carpeting always make sure that the carpet padding that we put down works for the type of carpet that it is going to be installed into and we will explain why we are going with a certain pad. We would never lay new carpet padding over old pad and make sure that the padding is the right thickness.
