Carpet Padding

Carpet padding facts you need to know

Once you choose the perfect Carpet flooring, the next step is a professional installation. Along with that installation, you'll need quality carpet padding as well. This product adds so much to your carpet experience with benefits that will serve you for years to come.

Why choose carpet padding?

Padding is not something you see once the installation is complete. But it plays a crucial role in the performance of your flooring, no matter what kind you've chosen. Here are a few key benefits of this unseen flooring force:

  • A softer, more comfortable step
  • Added noise suppression
  • No premature wear or balding
  • Less bunching or rippling
  • A longer lifespan

Carpet pad options vary based on the flooring you choose and your specific needs. We recommend Shaw Courage and Mohawk Smart Cushion in most installations. These products have a history of success in a variety of spaces.

Thick pads are not recommended for thinner, short-pile carpets. Bedrooms are perfect for adding a soft, thick carpet pad for fantastic comfort. Thinner carpet padding is better in high-traffic areas or spaces that often take on heavy loads.

We proudly offer Shaw Courage carpet padding, a go-to for comfort and functionality.

If you're interested in a premium feel but don't want to sacrifice durability, this antimicrobial, water-resistant, ultra-padded option is a fantastic route to go.

Special carpet padding features

Some carpets feature pre-attached carpet padding that can speed your installation. Since half the work is already done, it saves time and effort. The result is the same plush experience you expect from high-quality padding.

You might also find a vapor barrier necessary in certain situations. This can include both subfloor issues and spills or accidents from the surface. Be sure to ask about eco-friendly flooring options with outstanding results.

Special considerations for carpet padding

Be sure to ask about your carpet's warranty on padding materials. Some carpet brands require a specific carpet pad to maintain the warranty. You'll have much more peace of mind when you ensure this necessity.

It's also important to remember that the "squeeze test" is not a good way to choose padding. Softer is not always better, especially in certain areas. Take the time to speak with our associates about your specific needs.
