Carpet Padding: Why Does It Matter?

Carpet Padding: Why Does It Matter?

You spend a lot of time and energy deciding on the perfect carpet for your home, and the same attention should be given when choosing your carpet cushion.
Carpet cushion provides maximum warmth, comfort, and noise control. It adds to the luxurious feel of your carpet. But it also helps your carpet PERFORM better.
A quality cushion extends the life – and often the warranty – of your new carpet:
  • Keeps your carpet cleaner, allowing greater air flow and dirt removal during vacuuming
  • Protects the flooring beneath the carpet from moisture and staining
As a Shaw Flooring Network Retailer, we carry a wide range of Shaw cushion. Each meets the requirement for warranty coverage and in some cases can actually extend the carpet’s warranty. Here are some of your options and their benefits.
  • Triple Touch – the ultimate in luxurious cushion
  • Eco Touch Crush Resister – our preference for eco-friendly rebond  
  • Visco Touch – our elastic memory foam carpet cushion
  • Eco Fiber Touch – the ultimate in synthetic fiber cushion
  • Select Rebond – the choice for comfort and value
  • Shaw Cushion for St. Jude: Between 2% and 3% of the suggested retail price is donated to St. Jude Children’s Research
