When you purchase flooring at Southside, you can also get the accessories you need for installation. That includes our carpeting. We have the tack strip, the heat sealing tape, and we also have the carpet padding.
Carpet padding is measured by density which equals the firmness of your carpeting. We have padding to fit every home and budget! Our padding is made from recycled materials and it’s available in 6 pound, 6 pound with mesh and 8 pound with Scotchguard. Based on the different density, pricing ranges from only $.35 to $.65 per square foot so, what’s the difference?
Simply put, the more dense the padding, the longer you can expect your carpet to last. A denser padding, like the 8 pound, won’t bottom out when you step on it and doesn’t wear out as easily from dirt and grit over time. Some of our padding includes Scotchguard which acts as a vapor barrier. This is especially useful in homes with pets or children and makes it easier to clean.
If you’ve been thinking about carpet for those cold winter mornings when your feet hit the floor, stop by Southside and let our experienced staff help you pick out everything you need to get started today!
