We recommend that new underlay is bought with every new carpet. The reasons for this are:
- Underlay is vital for the new carpet to sit properly and wear evenly.
- It improves the feel of the carpet underfoot and helps with that "luxury" feel.
- It increases sound insulation and reduces energy costs.
- It reduces pile compression and so enables a carpet to retain its appearance for longer.
- Noise insulation. Acoustics are considerably improved with carpet & underlay while impact noise is reduced.
- New underlay can increase the life of your carpet by 60 %
Types of underlay available:
Duralay, Ball & Young (Cloud 9) and Gates Rubber.
