Make Underlay Your Second Priority!

Underlay is the most overlooked aspect of purchasing a new floor. "I've already got underlay" is a common thought or "it doesn't make any difference".... but think again! Old underlay is prone to crumble or collapse especially in high traffic areas which may cause your new carpet to ridge or appear uneven. Old underlay also harbours dust and dirt which can seep through to the surface, ruining the appearance of your beautiful new carpet. There are also many other benefits to installing a new underlay, including sound proofing, insulation and most of all superior comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

"I've already got an underlay so I don't need a new one"

Old underlay won't protect your new carpet properly and may cause ridges and marks.

Existing underlay may have crumbled or collapsed in high traffic areas or under heavy furniture.

"The carpet has built-in underlay"

No carpets have built-in underlay, but some do have a thin secondary, or felt backing. This type of carpet will quickly lose its appearance without an underlay.

"It's too costly"

By protecting your carpets with underlay you will not have to replace your carpet as frequently.

Underlay provides better heat insulation and therefore your energy bills will be lowered by up to 15%.

"Underlay doesn't make any difference"
