Getting some laminate flooring fitted in my bedroom.
It's a grooved floor so slots together.
The guy who is fitting it told me to leave my carpet down as that could be used as underlay.
The carpet is quite thick and is worn more in some places and like new in other places (e.g. under the bed).
Is he right to leave the carpet down as I would imagine that the carpet would have too much "give" (if you know what I mean) and therefore the floor would move as you walk over it and maybe break.
I've never put down a floor before so don't know. Has anyone ever put their floor over carpet? Or is it best to get underlay?
