Pad is one of the key elements to your carpet's longevity. We recommend 6 lb rebond for the average use in the home under a cut pile. While berbers are typically denser they need more support, so a 7 lb or 8 lb rebond pad is generally used. Commercial fiber pads should be used under all commercial carpets that require pad.
Myth ... The softer the pad the better quality it is? Wrong, the firmer the pad the more wear you will experience from your carpet. Soft pads may feel good but allow more movement between your carpet and the pad and therefore experience earlier signs of the backing breaking down on your carpet. Firmer pads lessen the constant movement.
