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.

The product served its purpose. I am happy with the quality. Now, our basement is warm enough for the winter. Pick up is easy as 123. I am happy with the assistance given by home depot in loading this item to my car. The app is very good all I need is to wait in the car, 5 mins the least. All in all, I am a satisfied customer.

too thin. Should have gotten thicker. I was told 8 LB density was better. Wrong.

Thank you for your feedback. If the store stocked the Step Ahead with Nike Grind, that would have been the upgraded 8lb product. The 8lb 5/16 thickness is designed for Berber type carpets. FutureFoam

Not too "spongy," but that is what we were looking for. Easy to cut to size with sharp household scissors. Does not ship on vinyl floor. Carpet on top does not slip. Recommend.

Cheap feeling. Noisy when walking on - the sound of plastic. Harsh feeling, I did not & don’t like it or would recommend it. Try something different. It’s really a 1 star

Response from FutureFoamSupportAug 26, 2020
Thank you for your feedback. The 5/16 inch thickness doesn't offer much of a cushion feel; this product is normally used for under loop/Berber carpets. The sound of plastic is not normal and we will address with our manufacturing team. FutureFoam

First time that we used carpet padding. Love the feel of it. The size of the roll was only 5ft. long - easy for us to pick up with our station wagon. The pattern on the back was off a little - leading us to miscut it slightly (a little out of square), but we made it work.
