Laminate flooring is now widely used and is widely used for many reasons. It is economical, durable and has many resistant properties. However, before you install laminate on your floor, you have to make an underpayment. The laminate underlay is a material that is placed under the lamination to provide additional properties.
WHY DO YOU NEED DOCUMENT?
Laminate is thin when you live in dwellings or not on the ground floor, and if you do not install laminate flooring, you will be transmitting noise to the floors below. To give your floor sound absorption properties, you need a base.
Another reason why laminate flooring is important is the padding, otherwise the floor feels too hard when you walk on it. The base gives your lamination solidity and strength. It also prevents your lamination from being ruined by the underlying floor. It will also provide isolation. Some underlays absorb moisture.
The type of backing you need depends on the environment in which you live. If you live in a place with a lot of noise, noise reduction should be your primary concern when choosing the underlay, or if you live in a damp area and there is one. The moisture may ruin your lamination. Then choose a pad that absorbs moisture. Another factor to consider is the type of floor space you have under your lamination.
