Rubber Underlay – The Why

Thinking about installing Laminate flooring? But did you know it’s not just about the flooring its also about whats underneath.

We suggest installing a good rubber underlay when doing so. Why . . .

  1. Sound Reduction: A rubber underlay can significantly reduce noise transmission, making the floor quieter to walk on. This is especially important if you live in an apartment building or have a two-story home.
  2. Moisture Protection: A rubber underlay can protect your laminate flooring from moisture damage by acting as a moisture barrier.
  3. Subfloor Protection: A rubber underlay can provide a protective layer between the subfloor and the laminate flooring, reducing the risk of damage from any imperfections in the subfloor.
  4. Comfort: A rubber underlay can provide extra cushioning, making the floor more comfortable to walk on.

While selecting a rubber underlay for your laminate flooring, we suggest to choose one that is specifically designed for use with laminate flooring. This will ensure that the underlay provides the proper support and protection for your floor. Additionally, make sure that the underlay is compatible with the type of laminate flooring you are using, as some underlays may not work well with certain types of laminate flooring – but don’t worry we at Ballator are hear to aid you every step of the way. Should you choose we can install too – taking the stress out of your new flooring!
