I debated about whether to buy the Premium, Superior or Durable carpet pad offered by Overstock. I assumed that the more expensive pad (Premium or Superior) was better quality than the less expensive (Durable) so I chose the Superior which was middle-of-the-road in price. The Superior is fine, but I recently ordered another rug pad (9 x 12) and decided to try the Durable instead since it was cheaper. I was shocked by the fact that for less money, the quality seemed so much better. The Durable is the Safeviah brand and it is noticeably thicker than the Superior pad. In my opinion, it is a much better value unless you prefer a thinner rug pad. Hope this helps you in your decision-making.
Great pad for your expensive tufted or hand knotted carpet. Will make it feel softer, thicker, and preserve its life. will not allow any slippage on your floor even without furniture on it. Highly recommend and the price is better than what you will pay at a carpet store for same. The precut on the 6 X 9 is about 3/4 to 1 inch less in measure than actual all the way around which is exactly what you want, no cutting required before laying.
Product is as advertised. It is between 1/4" and 1/2" thick with a rubber side for hard floors and a fabric side for carpet. The pad holds the rug well such that it does not slip, however it doesn't add much padding or cushion. There are 3 minor issues with the pad:
1) The pad is folded and rolled for shipping. The creases created by folding the pad cause some "bumps" in the overlayed rug. I am hoping these will flatten out over time, but am uncertain they will without specifically laying a heavy item on them for an extended duration.
2) The pad is not cut straight. It was not a perfect rectangle and some edges needed to be trimmed. However, it was easy to trim and this was minor.
3) There is a minor smell to the pad that likely comes from the manufacture process. It is not heavy but it is noticable. As with the creases, I am hoping the smell will dissipate over time as the pad airs out.
Overall, the pad does what is advertised and it was worth the price paid.
This pad is the type I would buy for indoor/outdoor carpets where a thin pad is desirable. I would have preferred a thicker pad although this one is OK. It would be helpful to include the thickness in your description and possibly state that it is a low-profile pad.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color looks same as the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the pad is dense enough and has the rubberized backing but is very thin
How accurate was the on site description of the product? the picture makes the pad look thicker than it actually is
Using another rug pad, my rug kept moving incrementally, requiring 2 people to readjust it every week. With this new pad, it never moves. The pad is not super thick, so doors open over it, but it gives heft to the rug and is certainly non-skid.
