Much has been written about the importance of quality carpet cushion. Good or better carpet padding provides both acoustical and insulative properties as well as adding longevity to your carpet investment. Some carpet cushions will go a step or 2 farther by increasing your carpet manufacturer’s warranty.
Stainmaster carpet cushion (when used under stainmaster carpet) will add years to the Stainmaster carpet wear warranty. It will add 3 years wear protection to carpets made of Stainmaster nylon and 5 years to the wear warranty of carpets made of Stainmaster Ultralife nylon.

If you use either of these carpet pads under a Shaw residential carpet, Shaw Industries will double (that’s double) the wear warranty of that particular carpet. Shaw apparrently has great condidence in both their carpet and carpet cushion.
