rough-in radiator pipe height above floor

what is the typical thickness of carpet and/or hardwood flooring that is calculated in on top of subfloor when determining the length of final radiator nipples rising from the floor? is 3/8-1/2" safe to calc in on top of 3/4" of the subfloor.

laying a lenght of fins on a 2x4 for the wood floor, and (2) 2x4s for carpeting add up for both wood and carpet the double will be clear enough...better off soldering the nipples on the element runs and drop them down if you have a crawl or basement.pipe it to a mounted sections without the covers on
