You need to invest in underlay if you are installing floating floors and secret nailing. Flooring underlay provides a soft cushioning when used with engineered wood flooring.
We carry an impressive selection of hardwood floor underlayment in generic and popular brands. Our products come in different materials and thicknesses to satisfy various requirements.
The Need for Hardwood Underlay
Moisture protection is one of the biggest plus sides of fitting underlayment. Engineered wood floors come with the risk of damp or moisture seeping through.
Underlay with a damp proof membrane protects your flooring from moisture damage. Another reason to invest in underlay for your hardwood flooring is sound reduction. The additional layer absorbs sounds hence decreasing the amount of noise in a particular space.
Underlay is also excellent for thermal insulation. It traps heat, which means that a room stays warmer for longer. If you intend to use underfloor heating, then you need special underlayment.
Easy Floor Installation
Underlay takes the stress out of floor installation. The padding it creates makes it easier to click planks together. In some instances, underlay can help even out the subfloor.
However, this is not the primary use of underlayment. The different types of underlay allow use with various floor solutions. Besides solid wood, we also have underlay for commercial laminate.
Since laminate flooring is thin, underlayment helps pad out the thickness. For a concrete subfloor, get a polyethylene film fitted with a moisture barrier. If you are unsure if your floor needs underlay, and what kind, consult our team for expert opinions.
