When purchasing any Solid, Engineered Wood or Laminate Flooring one of the most important things to consider is a suitable underlay - however, this is often overlooked. A good quality underlay will often prolong the life of your new flooring by up to 10 years.

Our 2mm Foam Laminate and Wood Flooring Underlay is our low cost underlay which is suitable for all types of wood and laminate flooring. It is also suitable for use on wooden and concrete subfloors.

Each roll covers 15m² (15m x 1m) and has a thickness of 2mm. It is also suitable for underfloor heating.

Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring Installation:

1) A “floating floor” is an extremely popular fitting method, this is where you run a PVA wood glue along the groove and slide the tongue back into the groove creating a strong bond. This method then allows the floor to naturally breathe as it is not fixed to one position. Underlays are often used when this installation method is used.

2) Fixing the flooring directly to the sub floor is equally as popular as a “floating floor”. You can either stick the flooring directly to the sub floor with an adhesive or secret nail the flooring to a wooden sub floor. This is the preferred method when installing solid wood flooring.

Laminate Flooring Installation:

Laminate flooring is one of the easier installation methods as it comes with click joining system. This means two planks simply just click together. Most people opt to use an underlay when installing laminate flooring.

Here are a few important tips:

  • Don’t forget to leave a 10mm expansion gap.
  • Allow 48 hours for an engineered floor to acclimatise
  • Allow 7 days for a solid wood floor to acclimatise.
  • Allow 24 hours for a laminate floor to acclimatise.
  • Try and install on a level sub floor
