Send it out for testing??? Maybe they don't have high tech devices like tape measures. But that snide remark is not to mean measuring one spot of the pad is the only thing you have to do. Some pad isn't manufactured to tight tolerance levels. Some flaws just get by the inspector on the line. So yeah, the pad can be measured by anyone with a tape, but it needs to be measured in several places. Equally troubling is the ease with which the carpet lifted off the tackless. If stretched tight, that would be difficult to do with the average vacuum, even if it wasn't tucked in like it should be. But that problem just makes it easier to pull the carpet back enough to check the thickness of the pad. If the pad is flawed in that area only, then cut out the thin section and replace it with 7/16 8# pad, then restretch the carpet so it doesn't come up with regular vacuuming. Jim
Yeah, that's what I thought. But maybe they would send it out for testing to confirm that it is 8-lb., under the premise that if we got the wrong pad, the thickness might not be the only problem? Any one have an idea how long it takes to receive such test results? We would like to move furniture back into the space.
The test is really this easy; ...Go into the shop, and ask them to show you their different pad grades. Odds are very very good they are not the same color.- in 20 years I've never seen the same manufacturer make two different grades in the same color - That's to remove the 'dummy factor'. Then check the color of that pad you payed for against the color of your installed pad. -If it doesn't match up, you either got hoodwinked or their warehouse guy was hung over that morning. If it does match up, then ask for a lab test.
