Judging by the court in the name you have bought from Carpet Court.Each retailer may have the same underlay,though different badging.As long as it is foam in your home it will last longer.Always worth getting the best you can afford,u'lay shouldn't cost too much to get a top upgrade.

I have an Epson TW-1000 1080p.Quite pleased with it actually.Only does its best work with the x-box 360 HD DVD player though.The inferior format won again.Blu-ray's are great,but the HD just edges it.I got the free screen and globe deal.Waited 3 months for the screen and when it arrived it was crap....

If it is a solid timber,it would generally be laid on directionally opposing batons on top of the slab.Much better idea than an engineered floating timber floor.And it would be "secret nailed" rather than glued.

The down side to a floating timber floor is the thin veneer and limited re-finishing opportunities [generally 2].It sounds like your sick of vinyl,but bear in mind that the worst part about a vinyl installation cost wise is the sub-floor.If you have vinyl down,chances are thats about 16-20 bucks a s...

Have you tried explaining your position to the builder?As long as the carpet is not already down,you may well be able to negotiate upgrades to other things such as tiles or appliances etc.This leaves a little of his expected carpet profit in his pocket,and a little bit back in yours.You will need to...

gday, firstly glad you are steering away from laminate ! Although the formica ones are some of the better out there, they are still adversely affected by water ! What i would highly recommend, and do to everyone who asks me about flooring for kitchens (and bathrooms) is vinyl planks. The two major ...
Exactly right.Planks are perfect.Check each products wear layer thickness,try and get something with a commercial ratin...

Well,I stand corrected.I have given up looking for the "made in" brand,as most products don't show you anything,not iust in flooring,I was also told it wasn't made in China :( Sometimes you wonder how people educate their salespeople,if I recall correctly it was Swiss made.Although the quality and e...

Time to put this question to bed.I like Bridgestone more than Dunlop.Why:Bridgestone have bought me dinner twice as many times as Dunlop,Bridgestone have given me tickets to far more events than Dunlop,and more sporting goods and merchandising than Dunlop. Hell,bridgestone is much easier to lay than...

RE:Timber Impressions questions. Apparently this product is w/proof,only if it is sealed.Which means you would have to glue ALL edges,exposed or otherwise,during installation. That would be a laborious experience,and defeats the purpose of a "click system" as you would be unable to replace boards if...

Western Dist. are easily the cheapest in Melbourne,however laying quality is notoriously hit and miss.{good layers won't work for that money} Pugh's used to be the benchmark of quality and service in Melbourne,but now use a laying sevice called Carpet logistics.I have some experience with that compa...
