Answer The padding is simply stapled to the subfloor in most cases. If it is stapled down, just rip out the padding in pieces as large as possible. There will be small …pieces of padding still stuck to the staples. Now you can either pull up the staples one by one using a staple remover (this will take a long time) or there is a scraper tool you can buy at home improvement tools that you can scrape along the floor to remove the remaining staples and padding.
plan on a range of about .50 cents per foot for something decent up to $1 per feet for the premium stuff with all the bells & whistles
It's a little bit of incomplete question. In general carpet pads are available in custom sizes, thus the cost of it varies according to their use. If you want to know the …exact cost of a carpet, please share the size of your area rug or you can directly take an expert suggestion at any rug and carpet retailer like: 1800getarug.com, rugsusa.com, shrug.com etc.
not for my use but have seen it used in public bathrooms in all you can eat buffets.
When used with area and Oriental rugs, carpet padding is used to provide an extra cushion beneath your feet, to prevent the rug from sliding all over the floor, and to promote… even wear on the rug's pile. For flatweave and antique rugs, carpet padding is a must!
You would be better off buying a rug or a large piece of carpet remnant if you don't want to take the original carpet up. The peel and stick won't stick and you would en…d up with a tripping hazard.
This will depend on what substrate you have. Generally a high grade pad is 10lbs or higher and 3/8th of an inch but no taller then 1/2".
No. There would be far to much movement, and it likely would never stick.
Carpet tiles are moderatly high tech flooring, the install instructions are available from the manufacturer & that will include the allowable & recommended adhesives. Withou…t any specifics, I can tell you that almost all recommend a "Pressure sensitive" adhesive, rolled on with a paint roller & allowed to dry to the touch before putting the tiles in place. Look in the yellow pages for "carpet installation supply" store & ask them for a price & spread rate. Expect to pay 30-100 per gallon for this wonder goo. It isn't cheap but it goes on thin.
contrary to what the salesman will tell you cushion is about comfort not wear. Pick the one that gives you a great feel & you will be happy. 7/16" 6 pound density is a good pl…ace to start. 9/16" will feel more soft underfoot.. density is more important long term than thickness. alway pick 6 pounds or greater..
Probably not, but tell me what kind of cushion you have & how long you have had it & I will get you a specific answer
No, carpet pad is both taller and softer then pads meant for floating laminate and wood floors. No pad of any kind should be used on any other type of wood installation.
When putting c and a carpet over a wood floor with old glue on it do you have to scrape the old glue off the carpet we are using is the peal and stick with the blue primer?
You should scrape the old glue off if you expect a flat surface.
Carpet is not supposed to be glued to the pad, and I really can't imagine what advantage that would give you.
Permanent glue should always be used so that if you spill liquids on the tiles they won't come off. Along with permanent glue you should use wood glue so that the carpet tiles… are firmly glued to the suitable surface.
Carpet pads can be found in almost any local hardware store (Home Depot, Lowe's, etc). Prices can vary with different types of carpet pads, and the thickness of the pad itself…. To find the best suited pad for your situation, talk to a sales assistant at the hardware store.
A flat rubber carpet padding may weigh 22 pounds per cubic foot and a prime urethane carpet cushion may weigh only 4 pounds, but the ultimate performance factor is how man…y pounds per footfall area will it take for the carpet cushion to bottom out.
