Hardwood over carpet?


I was wondering if there is a way to install a Hardwood Floor or Fake Hardwood Floor over carpet without permanently damaging the carpet? My company is fixing up our new office and we want to make a hardwood lobby. The only thing is that we are not allowed to take out the carpet or install anything that will be permanent. The carpet is really ugly and we have to do something to hide it. Any ideas?

Hardwood over carpet?


If the existing carpet is low level loop commercial glued with no pad, then you can install a floating hardwood over the top of that.
it will not damage the carpet.

Yeah, I think that is what I will do. The floor is commercial carpet and really thin.

Hardwood over carpet?


should be easy enough. I put laminate floor over kitchen carpet and have had no issues. the carpet acts as the pad you would normally have to buy.
