Installers pull it across the floor with a carpet stretcher, then match patterns, join seams, and apply transition strips, as needed. Proper installation by an experienced team and a brand of high-quality carpeting are essential for durability. The longevity is also determined by the padding used between the subfloor and flooring. The manufacturer's warranty is often void if padding is not used since it absorbs the shock of footsteps. The correct thickness and density of the padding vary according to the type of carpet that is installed. A 7/16-inch pad is typical, but a short pile may require a thinner pad. Pad density is usually 3 to 10 pounds.
