As I have never done it before my questions are:
- How far from the skirting should the wooden gripper rods be fitted? The new carpet goes in two rooms - one with "normal" skirting and the other with skirting that was fixed around 3/4" above the floor (not sure why, was there when I got it), so I fixed a quarter round/circle bidding to the bottom of it to cover the void. Should the rooms be treated differently as a result - i.e. should I fit the grippers further or closer to the skirting? - Can I assume that once the gripper rods are in place I simply unroll the underlay in the space in the middle, butting it against the rods? Also, stupid question, I know, but which side goes up? The underlay I use is similar to this one http://www.underlayuk.co.uk/luxury.php
- Does the underlay need to be fixed to the wooed floor once laid? i.e. carpet tacks, etc.
Many thanks in advance.
PS: the carpet is a cheapish felt back one if that makes a difference.
