Different types of underlay:


Rubber carpet underlay

PU Foam carpet underlay

Foam carpet underlay is relatively light to move about, easy to cut and fit and can give a real quality feel to your carpet. Often it is cheap to buy. And this is because it is usually made from recycled materials, so this has cost savings at the manufacture stage. The prices and thicknesses vary we favour this type of underlay due to the value for money and durability
