Messed up and installed the wrong pad in two rooms. 15 miles out of town and I got to the point of unrolling the carpet and fill piece. Got a text from the customer that the pad was the wrong one and she had ordered in some "good" pad. The pad I installed was some Karastan 7/16" #8 pad. It's a really nice rebond. Anyhow, that carpet is a bazzillian ounce nylon carpet and I can barely shake the long 27 foot living room run sideways. Too heavy to shake air under it. In order to salvage the pad, I needed to remove it and wrap it up carefully so I wasted most of the day doing the pad R&R. I cut 1 1/2" from the seam edges so there weren't any staples or staple marks in the pad I was rolling up. It's about 69 inches wide now with better than factory edges. I used a pad knife so the cuts were straight and clean, then I wrote the length on each roll and wrapped them up in shrink tape. They look so professional. and purdy. 99% of the pad sold by this Carpet One store is the Karastan 9/17" 8lb rebond pad. They don't even stock the lighter weights.............. not even for apartment contracts. I made the mistake of hauling out this 8lb pad to the customers house without stopping at the shop for a work order. No money in this job in the first place. Makes my week a total waste.............. Grrrr at myself.
