What Type Of Carpet Glue To Use ?


I am getting ready to lay down some indoor/outdoor on a slab in a screened in porch. I have read some horror stories about glue removal after the fact.
If I anticipate replacing in 2-3 years, is there a more forgiving glue to use so removal is easier down the road.?

No, all the glues will hold for years,macinging berg duncan made one way back but appearantly it did not hold up. Depending on the type of carpet you can stretch and staple it if you are going to be replacing in a couple of years. Have done many installations like this on sun porches and exterior installations. Works great!!!!!!

Re: What Type Of Carpet Glue To Use ?


dont know how weather protected the porch is..but what about installing a overlayment and just throwing in a few tapcons or anchors and then putting the adhesive over there..if you wish to get rid of it in a few years just pull up subfloor. Im sure you would have to use a vapor barrier between the slab and sub. Tranistions would also have to be used..but im sure you would of ended up with a form of a transition anyways. Just thinking outloud

I would just use double-face tape. If/when it comes loose, just put down some more.
