can carpet be installed directly on concrete floor?


Or is some form of subflooring needed?

Thanks

It is always installed directly on a concrete floor. Glue down or stretch-in over pad. Been doing it for 40 years.

I'm providing a link to a web page that has warranty, carpet care info, and installation guidelines for major carpet brands. Maybe you will see something that voids a warranty for installing directly on concrete with the carpet brand you have decided on. But I agree that it's done commonly. Jim
