    Hi All,

    Coupld of quick questions for you pro's :)

    Would 10mm underlay need taller grippers or can they just be doubled up?

    I am debating on the following carpets:

    First Impression
    Heartlands
    Heartlands Heathers
    Heartlands Ultra

    What is one of the better carpets above, would it be the heartlands ultra? I'm looking for something that's quite a tight pile and wont flatten too quickly.


    Secondly, I need to chose a underlay, something that i can have all around the house and stairs and is dense and will protect from flattening but still feels quite nice underfoot.

    My options are 9mm caviar and crystal

    Or a 10mm connoisseur or super contract by cloud 9 (would this be ok on stairs and would I need thicker grippers, standard or can I double up existing ones)

    Also, have you had any experience with something like a 11mm memory foam underlay. Not seen much about memory foam. Is it dense?

    Heartlands Ultra is the best on that list and with the 9mm Caviar and Crystal would give a lovely job that will last for years.

    Thanks!

    Will it still feel quite soft underfoot?

    It’s a high density underlay so opinions will vary, but my personal one is yes it feels soft underfoot.
