Carpet Question...


I am trying to find a black burbur for the stage in my HT. No luck so far, but HD has that really think outdoor carpet my wife says to use due to the price. This is just for the stage, but does anyone know if with this really thin stuff you can use a pad?

And whats the best way to secure it?
I wanted to use regular tack strips, but I dont think I can with this thin stuff.

Thanks
Kirby

That's what I used for my riser (interior/exterior carpet from Lowes) ....you can use flooring glue or there's a tape too

Why do you want to use a pad under the carpet??? ...I think that if you glue it on top of the wood is enough.

I wanted to use a pad for comfort but also to make the rolled edge thicker and more gradual.

Applying it direct would be easy but will it look as good?

That will depend on how pick you are

I don't have a good picture of the riser (just the one below), the rolled edge was not a problem to me
