These things, if not addressed, can cause you problems further down the road, and we want to help you stay away from that scenario.
Carpet backing is one of the most important facets of your carpet installation. Not only does it make for an amazing underfoot feel, but it also adds to the lifespan of the flooring. Without it, the carpet will wear directly against the subfloor and may need replacing long before its time.
Some people think they’re saving money by leaving this option off, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In the long run, the cost of replacing your flooring earlier than necessary will cost you twice as much. It’s certainly worth it to make sure you don’t leave the backing off.
