How Much Should You Spend on Carpet Padding?

If you are shopping for carpet padding prices, there are some things that you should know before you buy your carpet padding.  How much you spend on your carpet pad depends on several factors, most importantly what the carpet manufacturer recommends for the padding should be the first consideration.

Carpet manufacturers have specifications for particular carpets that must be followed in order to maintain a warranty, and also to provide the most appropriate padding for the chosen carpeting. The type of carpet padding that you purchase must match the carpet in terms of specifications and long lasting durability.  If you want your carpet to last for fifteen or twenty years, then your padding must also be designed to last that same amount of time.

There is a big difference in price between carpet padding that will last five years versus padding that is made to last fifteen or twenty years.  A higher quality of carpet padding will have a higher price tag, but if is the appropriate padding for the job, it is a necessary and good investment.  You’ll want a quality padding to pair with your quality carpeting, providing the most durability especially in high traffic areas.  

The most common type of carpet padding used in residential settings is Rebond, which is made of recycled material giving it it’s multicolored look.  An average price for Rebond carpet pad is usually between $3.00 – $5.00 per square yard, but this is just the price for the pad itself.  

You will have to add for material and any labor involved.  A standard sized room would not be too much additional, but for an odd shape or size you could pay more for labor.  You can avoid additional charges if you have all of your furniture out of the room so that that room is clear and ready to go.
