I install laminate flooring for more than 5 years. So far the best underlayment I used was LessCare underlayment. I live in Philadelphia so I usually shop in their local showroom which is called AAA Distributor.
When you decide to put laminate flooring in your home, you might be surprised that you need to worry about more than the laminate itself. The laminate is the pretty part, the colorful, shiny showpiece of all your hard work and hard earned money. But under that shiny floor, you’ll need to check on the issue of underlayment.
Underlayments create a softer subfloor under the laminate flooring which can definitely be felt when one is walking across the floor. Thirdly, most underlayments for floating installations will feature an attached moisture barrier .
Underlayment is a necessary component of any laminate flooring or floating engineered hardwood installation. This underlayment is suitable for a wide range of flooring including laminate, hardwood, bamboo, & engineered wood.
One of the reviewers at Pro Tool Reviews bought a rental home with a large tiled area. The tile occupied both the living and dining areas. Trouble was, the former owners used two different tiles, and the job was definitely sub-par. Fortuitously, The had just started carrying the new Pergo Outlast laminate flooring (actually it’s called Outlast).
Nothing pairs better with a Pergo floor than Pergo Gold underlayment. Not only does this simple fan fold underlayment making cutting and installing Pergo even easier, it also increases the quality of your Pergo flooring.
