SmartCushion pad or other? 8 or 10 lbs?
Sorry if this has been asked to death but my searches didn't come up with much.
My question is regarding carpet pads with a SmartStrand carpet. The flooring store has a standard 8 pound pad included in price. Then there's a Mohawk 8 pound w/moisture barrier for .25 cents per square foot and an 8 pound SmartCushion w/moisture barrier for .50 cents per square foot. The Mohawk versions has something like a "memory foam" in it. The store person says it's "harder" but I can't see why. He said going to 10 lbs would make it even harder?? Is this true?
If you were choosing a carpet pad under your Smartstrand frieze carpet which would you choose? (we're talking about 1,600 square feet, great room & bedrooms)
