This padding has a lot of value for the money. It was easy to lay down and tape two seams together. The waterproof membrane was sturdy enough for our use.

Represented a good choice for us in a basement floor remodel. Originally wasn't going to put pad down, but it really changes the feel of the carpet as well as provide sound and thermal insulation. The floor is cold enough to require heavy socks or more and carpeting was a good solution. Adding the padding turned it into a win. Easy to work with, yet still better than plain foam.
