Flooring Protection Underlayment and Subfloor

Subfloor and Underlayment are important things to consider when it comes to purchasing flooring for either your residential or commercial property. Floor protection is also worth using to anytime renovations are being done in your home.

SUBFLOOR:

The subfloor is the material installed underneath an interior floor (hardwood, engineered, vinyl or laminate) It is the structural material that will support your new floor. The subfloor helps provide a stable, flat and solid surface across the flooring joists. Homeowners typically never see their subfloor unless they are installing the flooring themselves.

UNDERLAYMENT:

Underlayment goes on top of the subfloor and can also serve as a protective and sound reducing barrier below the flooring material. Depending on the type of flooring you choose, there are many options to consider. It is important to choose the appropriate underlayment that will suit the floor you install over top.

  • Eliminates minor subfloor imperfections
  • Helps to reduce noise
  • Assists in keeping your floor warm
  • Underlay can act as a moisture barrier to your flooring
