How the Pros Install Carpet Padding

Before carpet installation can begin, carpet padding needs to be installed first. Professional carpet installers use several tools to lay padding, which include a razor knife, a pad stapler, pad tape, and a pad stapler—also, pad glue if carpet is going over concrete floors. Sections of padding are rolled out and laid one-eighth of an inch to the tack strip. Each subsequent section is laid flush against the seam of previous ones. The padding is then stapled into place and taped. Finally, padding is cut at the baseboards and excess material is removed. Check out this video to see how this type of flooring installation is done.
