Lots of people have asked,
“Why would underlay be needed for your wood flooring?”
Underlay has loads of benefits for your brand-new floor. Here we will explore the benefits of underlay.
– The first benefit is comfort. Underlay comes in different thicknesses. This allows the flooring to feel softer under you. You could have a 3mm barrier that feels firm to the floor, or You could have a crumb 3.5mm underlay that provides more thickness and comfort to your flooring.
– Underlay can also provide more insulation to your home. Underlay can reduce warm air escaping through the floor, or it can act as a barrier from cold air getting in.
– When walking around the house, sound is important. Underlay can provide good sound insulation. Our standard underlay has a 20dB impact on the sound reduction on laminate or wood floors.
– Underlay is also a protector of your flooring. It can extend the lifespan of your flooring. It can add extra protection to flooring across heavily trafficked areas such as stairs, hallways, landings…
