Underlay in Caterham, Kenley, Whyteleafe and the Surrounding Areas

Having a new carpet fitted can make a world of difference to the look, feel and even the warmth of your home. Whether you have your eye on something from our range of luxury carpets, or you plan to refurbish your home on a budget with one of our cheap carpets, make the most of your new purchase with the proper underlay. At Cut Price Carpets, not only do we supply, deliver and fit carpets and vinyl flooring, but we also provide gripper rods, door bars and underlay for all new carpet fittings in the Surrey area.

If you have carpet throughout your property in Caterham, Kenley, Whyteleafe or the surrounding areas, the chances are that you’ll also have underlay. However, did you know that older underlays, such as ones made of rubber, can become hard and turn to dust after several years? This causes premature wear spots, wrinkling, and can result in carpet fibres breaking down more quickly.

That is why our carpet suppliers suggest installing top-of-the-range underlay with any new carpet fitting in the Caterham, Kenley and Whyteleafe areas.

The benefits of this include:

  • Meets the current British Standards
  • Increases sound insulation
  • Improves underfoot comfort
  • Absorbs the pressure of heavy foot traffic
  • Reduces general wear and tear
  • Improves warmth and thermal insulation
  • Reduces flattening, crushing and matting
  • Will last for the lifetime of the carpet
  • Corrects sub-floor imperfections like uneven floorboards

Underlay from our carpet shop in Caterham can add a touch of luxury to your home, even underneath cheap carpets.

Underlay from Our Carpet Suppliers

When working with gripper rods during carpet fittings in Kenley and Whyteleafe, it can be difficult to use an underlay that is too thick. Our carpet suppliers and fitters tend to use underlay with a maximum thickness of 12mm, all the way down to around 7mm thickness. In general, the thicker the underlay, the better the quality should be. Stair no sings and rooms with heavy footfall, however, require a denser, thinner underlay.

There are many different types of underlay available from a range of reputable brands.

Some of the varieties we stock at our carpet shop include:

Polyurethane Foam – The most popular underlay on the market, this material offers exceptional comfort and performance levels. It is lightweight and easy to handle, comes in a range of thicknesses and densities, and it is also suitable for recycling after use

Felt – Our fitters use this traditional and environmentally friendly underlay when installing woven carpets, especially due to its thermal insulation

Rubber Crumb – Due to its density, this offers less comfort than some of the spongier alternatives. However, it is a great choice for rooms with heavy footfall, such as hallways, and for stair no sings in particular

Sponge Rubber – A popular choice among homeowners in Caterham, Kenley and Whyteleafe due to its comfort and durable spring retention. This type of underlay comes in flat or waffle textures and is available in a variety of weights for different uses

Combination – Some underlays consist of a rubber crumb base covered by a layer of felt on top. This provides a decent level of comfort, durability and protection

At Cut Price Carpets, we always use the most appropriate type of underlay for the situation, whilst being mindful of your budget.

  • "I started using cut price carpets for the lower end of the Carpet market to use in my properties in and around north London and student housing.... They offer great range of samples and it's never a headache when wanting some ASAP for a new client or project. I find them value for money and for what I need I will always be using them, there vinyl flooring is the most hard wearing I have seen and in the long run saves me money by minimal replacements."
