Considering this, does carpet padding go over tack strip?
Cut the carpet padding so it covers the entire floor with 1/2 inch of extra padding around the perimeter. Trim away excess padding with a utility knife, making sure the carpet tack strip is clear of any padding. Leave 1/8 to 1/4 inch of space between the padding and the tack strip.
Likewise, can you put double padding under carpet? You'll ruin the carpet, and you'll get big waves in there, like waves in the ocean. So unfortunately double-padding cannot be done, but it is a very frequently asked question. You can put it over any carpet. Even if it's a medium-quality carpet or if it's a low-quality carpet, it'll feel really plush and really deep.
Also question is, what kind of glue do you use for carpet padding?
Roberts 1-Gal. 4002 Carpet Pad Adhesive adheres to bonded foam, synthetic foam and rubber carpet padding in residential and commercial areas. The latex-based formula dries and sets quickly and provides a long-lasting bond.
