    Anyone know about carpet underlay?

    Hey All,

    Looking to replace master bedroom carpet.

    Found a decent carpet from carpet right on sale but the best underlay they had was some rubber underlay which looked pretty firm but not convinced it's any good.

    I'm looking for something that will be soft and last as well. Anyone have any recommendations?

    When we were carpeting our new house we used Cloud 9 underlay - apparently it's the "best" feels nice underfoot but we've only been in 22 months so time will tell.

    +1 Cloud 9

    Go for cloud 9

    Seen this online sales for cloud 9 appear on quite a few forums before. Probably a lot cheaper than buying from the carper shop.

    Go for a rubber underlay, if it calls itself foam then it won't last.
    The only underlay to outlast a carpet is felt but it will flatten under heavy traffic, woven carpets sit better on felt so ideal compromise is to get the rubber backed with felt.

    Tredaire Red, apparently its better than the cloud 9

    Anyone any ideas for best acoustic underlay?

    Was the underlay black and solid? i had some fitted to the stairs and the rubber was reycyled material. but seeing as the stairs are in use all the time it needs to be firm.

    All I know is the sponge stuff is in my experience not good at all. Gone flat in 5 years. I wish I'd gone for the Tredaire which I believe is rubber.

    ​It was red the one they showed me. Salesman had no clue about differences between the underlays he had.

    Thanks to all for Cloud 9 suggestions, I had Cloud 9 originally but after 3 years it has pretty much lost all life.

    ​Does Axfelt smell too? A friend recommended that to me as well.

    Try these guys carpet-underlay-shop.co.uk/ they make it and supply some big brands. Go for the thicker (feels nicer, lasts longer) PU Foam Underlay stuff, Cloud9 is a big brand name but if you give them a bell I am sure they will tell you which is the best in their opinion.
