This will be useful in protecting the floor from the stiff backing of the carpet, and also work to hide the seam tape. We receive the soft backing material in bulk. what is seen is the bulk roll. We will roll out the soft backing material and cut off only what we need. This way the rest can be put away before we start to bring out the adhesive.
