How to Order:

When figuring out how much underlayment is needed, add an additional 5-10% to the area of the room to allow for wastage while installing. Choose from our 5 thickness options of 3mm, 5mm, 6mm, 10mm and 12mm. Available in roll form, 4' wide and 25' feet long (2mm and 3mm thickness is 50' long.)

Prep Work:

Underlayment and the flooring material must acclimatize, in their sealed packaging, in the room where they are installed for at least 48 hours at temperature of at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Before starting installation make sure the sub floor is permanently dry and free of dirt, dust, grease and other foreign matter. Concrete must be free of efflorescence and not subject to hydrostatic pressure. Sub floor moisture percentages should not exceed the manufacturers recommendations of 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet over 24 hours.

Wood Floor Construction:

Sub floor should be properly leveled, structurally sound and clean. Plywood sub flooring should be of a good grade. Variations in floor level over 18" within 3 feet span should be leveled before installing underlayment. Any nails or other protrusions should be pounded flat or removed. Sub floor should have L360 for deflection.

Concrete Slab:

Inspect concrete sub floor for any open cracks and fill with a high grade patch. Remove any excess concrete lumps or residue that may interfere with the installation of underlayment. The concrete slab should be permanently dry. A good quality concrete waterproof sealer may be required if moisture in slab is too high.

Hardwood:

When installed under glue down hardwood, underlayment needs to be adhered to the sub floor. Recommended adhesive: PU350,  Chemrex CX-941 or Bostick Best. Use 1/8" x 3/16" V-notched trowel (check for 100% transfer of adhesive and adjust to a larger trowel size if conditions require it.)  Install underlayment in opposite direction to the hardwood floor. Start in a corner and roll out rubber underlayment, installing it flush to the walls. Roll up the roll halfway and apply adhesive on exposed area, roll back over adhesive and flat trowel any air pockets. Repeat directions on the second side. Continue rolling out and gluing down underlayment in the same manner until the entire area is covered. Make sure the edges are tightly butted together, both side by side and end by end. Use a 50-100 lb roller to fully bond the underlayment to the sub floor. After 8 hours or when adhesive is cured install glue down hardwood flooring using the same adhesive as the bond coat and follow manufacturers written instructions. Install baseboard slightly off floor to avoid flanking path.

Installation Under Floated Engineered Hardwood:

Install underlayment in opposite direction to the hardwood floor. Start in a corner and roll out underlayment, installing it flush to the walls. Continue the next row in the same manner until the whole room is covered. You can tape the seams but it is not necessary. Install the floated engineered hardwood per manufacturers written instructions. Install baseboard slightly off floor to avoid flanking path.

Installation under Ceramic Tile:

Underlayment needs to be adhered to the sub floor. Acceptable bond-coat adhesives: PU350, Silka T-55, Silka T-35, Chemrex CX-941 or Bostik Best. Use 1/8" x 1/8" x 3/16" V-notched trowel. Start in a corner and roll out underlayment, installing it flush to walls. Roll up the roll halfway and apply adhesive on exposed area, roll back over adhesive and flat trowel any air pockets, continue with other side the same way. Continue rolling out and gluing down underlayment  in the same manner until the entire area is covered. Make sure the edges are tightly butted together, both side by side and end by end. Use a 50-100 lb roller to fully bond the underlayment to the sub floor. Install perimeter isolation strips vertically on walls or leave a 3/16" gap around all perimeter walls (this gap can be filled with a latex caulk but NOT grout). After 8 hours or when adhesive is fully cured install tile/stone flooring using a latex modified thin set (we recommend Laticrete 254). The thin set must be burned or keyed into the underlayment to insure proper bond. Grout and trim isolation material flush with floor, hold trim board 1/16" off floor to avoid flanking paths.
