What's the best type of underlay to place over tiles? the previous owners had rubber waffle underlay, but is foam better?
3 Answers from MyBuilder Carpet & Lino Fitters
Why? Rubber deterioates overtime and even quicker over uneven tiles!
Foam has a high tog rating so will be warmer in the winter. Tiles are notoriously cold.

a rubber crumb would be better such as treadmore from duralay
