The price of Cloud 9 Carpet Underlay depends on the thickness that is required. The average price per square metre of the 7mm is å£1.86, whereas the 10mm thick underlay is approximately å£2.98.
To the best of my knowledge Cloud 9 underlay is only available in Great Britian. Underlay is also called carpet padding in this country. It's a must for insulation quality, and to keep your carpet from wearing out faster.
The most expensive roll of Cloud Nine underlay, containing fifteen square meters of carpet, retails for around eighty dollars on Underlay For You. Bought separately, one square meter is around nine dollars.
Without extensive consumer research it is impossible to tell the quality of the carpet underlay each carpet installation company uses. A reputable consumer reviews site would be able to provide more accurate information.
To install a carpet underlay follow these five easy steps. 1) Prepare the subfloor, 2) install tackless strips around the perimeter of the room, 3) Cut the underlay in strips long enough to cover the tackless strips, 4) staple underlay to the subfloor and trim to the inside of the tackless strip, 5) make sure seams don't overlap and finished with carpet tape on all seams.
I was thinking about buying new carpet. How much, on average, would a carpet installation cost me?
It depends on the carpet that you are installing. If the carpet is a hessian or action backed carpet then traditionally it is installed over a separate underlay with grippers around the edge of the room. Grippers are the nasty spiked things that everyone catches their foot on! The carpet is attached at one side of the room and then stretched across and attached to the grippers on the opposite side. If the carpet is felt or foam backed then it should be installed directly to the subfloor provided it is of a reasonable standard. Felt or foam backed carpets are traditionally fixed on double sided tape or spray adhesive. Should you be installing a carpet in a contract location then the carpet and underlay should be installed using a double stick method. The underlay is stuck to the subfloor and then the carpet stuck to the underlay.
A fitted carpet means that the carpet covers the whole of the floor area. An underlay may be laid first and the carpet laid on top. The carpet is not attached to the floor.
It depends on how big the carpet is.
It shouldn't be done. Carpet underlay is usually to thick and flexible and won't provide the needed support under the laminate. It will flex too much causing it to break apart. you should check on the box what type of underlay is recommended for that specific product. There are as many types of underlay as there are laminates.
It depends on where in the world you are buying the carpet.
