Hi, this is my first post here so I hope I'm in the right area
I am looking at putting in a floating floor (or laminate flooring - still getting used to all the terms!) and I have read on a few sites that it is OK to put it over existing carpet (so long as the carpet is fairly thin).
Has anyone had experience with this?
If it's ok to do, does it mean that there is no need for the underlay because the carpet is already there, or would the underlay need to be put over the carpet.
The room I am wanting to do is a little less than 24sqm - not sure if it makes a difference, but thought I'd mention it
Today I saw some products that were as cheap as $12/sqm - going by other prices I have seen on the net it seems very low. What ball park figure should I look at for something in a budget range, but will last a few years at least.
There is just the two of us, our dog and our cat. But at a later date we hope to rent this place out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
