Laminate over carpet?

Postby Ira » Sun Jul 13, 2008 4:43 pm

Hi, I am about to ask an absolutely silly question, but I really have no clue...: Can laminate be layed over a carpet, or I must remove the carpet first? My carpet is the berber loop pile type, really flat.
Thank you for advise,

Ive done it before worked good for me and saves on underlay!!
you need a good tight pile on the carpet the one prob I did have was when clicking lam together bits of carpet can get into joints beware!!!

How long has this lasted ? Is the carpet damaged. Did you glue the edging strips to the skirting ? I am considering this at present and fear that a liquid spill could seep through the carpet and make a right smelly mess !
