Why underlayment is required for laminate flooring?
Why underlayment is required for laminate flooring?

Underlayment is not optional. If the laminate planks don’t have it already attached, rolls of underlayment on which to install the laminate floor is recommended.

Underlayment does two critical things: taking out any minor deviations in the subfloor and delivering superior acoustical performance. Since laminate is a floating floor, it must be evenly distributed across the subfloor. Underlayment is what allows the floor to float, gives it support, noise reduction, stability, and supports the locking systems in between planks to assure the sturdiest flooring project.

Proper selection and installation of underlayment and subfloor is crucial to the proper wear and stability of any flooring. Hunter Au 3mm Grey Foam Acoustic Underlay is a specialist hard flooring underlayment that provides unsurpassed acoustic performance. Combined with a 0.2mm black PE (Polyethylene) Barrier, it offers superior moisture protection. This product includes an incorporated tape seal on the end of the rolls for increased water vapour resistance.
