Forum Title: Looking for pad recommendations for Fabrica carpet
I am replacing carpeting in the bedrooms and on the stairs and hallway of my home, and am in the process of deciding between two Fabrica carpets--Power Point (Fabrica Carpet & Rugs - Power Point - Violetta) and Denali (Fabrica Carpet & Rugs - Denali - VIOLETTA). I am looking for help choosing the best pad for these carpets and locations to maximize the life of the carpet. I have learned so much reading the forums here at The Floor Pro, and would appreciate any recommendations from the community. I am especially concerned about wear on the stairs. An aside question: Would the pin-dot texture of Powerpoint wear better than the simple cut pile of Denali? Both are relatively short and dense weaves. What pad would be best to minimize wear on the stairs? Thank you so much for any advice or experience you have to offer. I am hoping to order the carpet this month.

On the stairs I would use a hair/ fiber pad. And also make sure the installer goes over the nose of the step. You could use a good 8 lb.rebond type pad for the rest depending if you want comfort and softer feel. Daris

Do you have any specific recommendations for the hair/fiber pad? What density? Composition? Anything else I should know or watch for? Also, would there be any advantage to going with a denser 9# rebond pad for the bedrooms and hallway?

That is better than 8lb pad and is ok. Look for a fiber pad that is 1/2 thick, some have like a 10lb rating.
