Underlay is an essential component of carpet fitting, providing cushioning and insulation and extending the carpet’s life.

Polyester carpets are soft, comfortable, and available at a more affordable price point. They offer good stain resistance but may not be as durable as nylon carpets.
Olefin carpets resist stains, fading, and moisture. They are most effective in outdoor or high-moisture areas. Olefin carpets are less expensive but may not be as resilient as other types.
Fibre carpets come from renewable materials such as sisal, jute, seagrass, or coir. They have a distinct texture and provide a natural and eco-friendly flooring option.
Synthetic fibre carpets, such as nylon, polyester, and olefin, offer various colours, styles, and price points. They are often more affordable than natural fibre carpets and provide durability and stain resistance.
Patterned carpets feature intricate designs, textures, or geometric patterns. They can add visual interest and enhance the decor of a room.
When considering a choice of carpet, think about factors such as durability, maintenance requirements, stain resistance, comfort, and the specific needs of the area where the carpet will sit.
Underlay plays a crucial role in the carpet fitting process. It offers several benefits, including extending the carpet’s lifespan by up to 50%, providing insulation, reducing energy bills, minimizing noise, and enhancing the overall comfort and appearance of the carpet.
The fitting underlay cost varies and is typically priced per square meter (m2). It generally ranges from £1.50 to £4.50 per m2, including the cost of the underlay and installation. The specific cost depends on factors such as the quality and quantity of the carpet, the location of the property, and the ease of access.
CARPET SUPPLY FIT specialists will present various carpet fitting option solutions to match your budget.

Carpet underlay, or carpet padding or cushion, is placed beneath the carpet to provide added comfort, insulation, and support. Several types of carpet underlay are available, each with its characteristics and benefits. Here are some common types of carpet underlay:
Foam underlay is one of the most popular types made from polyurethane foam. It is lightweight, affordable, and provides good insulation and sound absorption properties. Foam underlay comes in various densities, ranging from low-density to high-density options, with higher densities offering better durability and support.
Felt underlay is recycled fibres and compressed wool. It is known for its excellent insulation and acoustic properties, providing a warm and quiet environment. The Felt underlay is relatively dense and provides good support and durability.
Rubber underlay is a natural or synthetic rubber material. It offers exceptional durability, support, and sound insulation. Rubber underlay is often used in high-traffic areas and is resistant to compression, making it suitable for heavy furniture or constant foot traffic.
CARPET SUPPLY FIT’s carpet fitters are dedicated tradespersons delivering all carpet fitting solutions.
Waffle rubber underlay features a unique waffle-like pattern that enhances cushioning properties. It provides excellent comfort, support, and insulation. The air pockets in the waffle design help to distribute weight evenly and reduce the impact on the carpet.
Fibre underlay is synthetic fibres such as polyester or nylon. It is affordable insulation and moderate comfort. Fibre underlay is resistant to mildew and mould growth, making it suitable for areas with high humidity.
Cork underlay is made from natural cork and is an eco-friendly option. It has excellent insulation properties, providing warmth and sound reduction. Cork underlay is also hypoallergenic and mould-resistant.
Combination underlay, as the name suggests, combines different materials, such as foam and rubber, to balance comfort, support, and insulation. These underlays often have multiple layers with varying densities to offer a combination of benefits.
When choosing a carpet underlay, consider factors such as the level of comfort desired, the amount of foot traffic in the area, the carpet type, and any specific insulation or soundproofing requirements.
When our fitter lifts your current carpets or flooring carpet fitting process, underlying issues such as broken floorboards or an uneven floor. If your carpet fitter has experience in floor repair, they can handle the leveling or repairs for you.
As a general guideline, floor leveling typically costs around £12 to £17 per square meter for downstairs floors. If a staircase requires leveling or repairing, you can expect to pay approximately £40 to £55.
The specific cost of floor leveling or repairs can vary.
The time it takes to fit carpet per square meter (m2) can vary based on several factors. However, as a general guideline, professional carpet fitters can typically install around 14 meters of carpet per hour, including the underlay.
It’s important to note that the time required for carpet fitting can vary.
By discussing the estimated time for fitting the carpet with your carpet fitter in advance, you can plan accordingly and better understand the project’s completion timeline.
The time required to fit a carpet in a living room can vary depending on various factors. While it’s challenging to provide an exact timeframe without specific details, here is some general information:
Size and Shape of the Room
The dimensions and layout of the living room play a significant role in determining the time required for carpet fitting. Larger rooms or rooms with complex shapes may take longer to complete compared to smaller, more straightforward spaces.
Nooks, Crannies, and Odd-Shaped Walls
If the living room has intricate architectural features or irregularly shaped walls, it may require additional time for precise cutting and fitting of the carpet.
Any existing flooring issues, such as broken floorboards or uneven subfloors, must be addressed before the fitter can lay your new carpet. The time required for flooring repairs will depend on the extent of the damage.
Removal of Old Carpet and Furniture
If the fitter needs to move old carpet or furniture, this will add to the overall time. The process of ripping up old carpet, preparing the subfloor, and clearing the room of furniture can take some time.
As a general guideline, straightforward living room carpet fitting jobs typically take no more than a day, with half a day being more common. However, it’s essential to consider the specific circumstances of your living room, including any additional factors mentioned above, as they can influence the overall time required for the carpet fitting process.
When it comes to uplifting and removing existing carpets, here are the general steps involved:
Prepare the Area
Clear the room of any furniture or obstacles that may obstruct the carpet removal process.
If any electronics or appliances are in the room, disconnect them from power sources and move them to a safe location.
Cut and Remove the Carpet
Cut the carpet into manageable sections using a utility knife or cutting tool. Carefully cut along the room’s edges, ensuring no damage to the underlying flooring. Roll up each section of the carpet as you go.
Remove Tack Strips
Tack strips are narrow strips with small nails or tacks that hold the carpet in place around the edges of the room. Use a pry bar or pliers to carefully remove the tack strips, being cautious to avoid damaging the subfloor.
Remove Carpet Padding
Carpet padding is the cushioning layer underneath the carpet.
CARPET SUPPLY FIT offers high-performance carpet fitting solutions.
Clean the Subfloor
After the carpet and padding have gone, thoroughly clean the subfloor to remove any remaining debris, adhesive residue, or staples.
Dispose of the Old Carpet
Properly dispose of the old carpet, padding, and other waste materials following local regulations. You can contact local waste management services or check if there are specific guidelines for carpet disposal in your area.
It’s important to note that carpet removal can be labour-intensive and may require specialized tools and skills.
A new carpet is often thicker than the old carpet. It may mean the fitter will have to adjust the door.
Some carpet fitters may offer door adjustment services as part of their carpet fitting package. Adjusting each door ranges from £25 to £35.
It’s essential to communicate with your carpet fitter or seek the services of a professional carpenter or handyman to ensure that the doors are correctly adjusted to accommodate the new carpet.
CARPET SUPPLY FIT offers a complete carpet fitting service.
The total cost for a fitter to install your carpet will depend on several factors.
The Size and Shape of Your Room
A larger room will need more carpet and more fitting than a smaller room. Therefore, a larger room will cost more than a smaller room.
The carpet installation will be much easier if your room is a standard square or rectangle. But if your room has many tight corners, then the installation will be much more difficult for the fitter to install the carpet.
The Amount of Furniture to Move
If the room where you want the installer to fit the carpet is empty, the installer won’t have to move any furniture, and the cost of your new carpet will decrease. However, if there is a lot of furniture, and the fitter has to move the furniture, then the price for the new carpet will be much more.
If the room or rooms have furniture or belongings, the carpet fitter may charge an additional fee to move them because it requires extra time and effort to clear them.
Clearing Old Carpet or Flooring
If you’re replacing an existing carpet or flooring, you may need to remove and dispose of it. Carpet fitters may offer this service, but it could involve an additional cost.
It will be much easier for our installers to fit your new carpet if your property is easily accessible. However, if the property is difficult to reach and our installers would have to climb a series of staircases, this would impact the price of carpet fitting.
The Need for Underlay
Underlay is a cushioning layer placed beneath the carpet to improve comfort, insulation, and noise reduction. It is typically sold separately from the carpet and adds to the overall cost.
Often floors will need underlay before fitters can lay carpet.
Gripper rods keep the carpet in place around the edges of a room.
If the new carpet is thicker than the previous one, the installer may need to trim or plane the doors to ensure they can open and close correctly.
Old Carpet Disposal
If you are replacing an existing carpet, you may need to arrange for its disposal. Carpet fitters can handle this for you, but it could involve an extra charge.
If you have carpeted stairs, they may require additional labour and materials for fitting. Stair carpets often have special requirements, such as fitting carpet runners or creating custom shapes.
Depending on your preferences, you may need additional accessories such as carpet edging, threshold strips, or stair nosings.
It’s important to discuss these additional costs with your chosen carpet fitter to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of the total expenses involved.
Communication with the Carpet Fitter
It’s essential to communicate with your chosen carpet fitter the cost and any extra services you may need. Discussing these details in advance allows you to understand the overall expenses and make arrangements accordingly.
Remember that the specific charges for furniture removal and old carpet disposal may vary depending on the carpet fitter and the project’s scope. It’s advisable to get quotes from multiple carpet fitters and compare their offerings to make an informed decision.
Carpet Costs Average Price
