Is rubber underlay essential?

Underlay is frequently overlooked as an ‘optional extra’ – but it’s actually the foundation for your flooring and will have a significant impact on how your flooring looks, wears, and feels underfoot.

Rubber underlay has a sponge-like feel which provides extra cushioning.

When laid properly, it can make your carpets feel softer and much more comfortable to walk on.

Something else worth noting about rubber carpet underlays is that they can retain up to 15% more heat than other types, and they also provide a barrier against sound – keeping unwanted noise out.

A rubber underlay will act as a shock absorber, ensuring your carpet suffers less wear and tear over time.

On top of this, it will protect the carpet pile, making it easier to clean.

How long will rubber underlay last?

Rubber carpet underlay can last anywhere up to 25 years depending on the quality and thickness of the product, the amount of foot traffic it receives, and how much heat and moisture it’s exposed to daily.

Here at British Flooring, we find that the older underlay gets, the less effective it becomes. This is why we recommend investing in new underlay when you fit new flooring.

Before you lay new rubber underlay, be sure to give the subfloor a quick sweep to remove any dust, dirt, and debris. This will ensure the underlay sits nice and smooth, eliminating any bumps in your carpet.

How much will rubber carpet underlay cost?

It’s difficult to provide an exact figure for rubber underlay, as it typically depends on the manufacturer and quality of the product.

As with most things, a luxurious underlay is likely to cost you more, but it will perform better – offering unrivalled comfort and protection for your carpet floors.

The good news is, here at British Flooring, we supply rubber carpet underlays to suit every budget and are confident you’ll find something suitable.

No, not at all!

If you need rubber carpet underlay in a hurry, make sure you order before the 2pm cut-off. Orders received after this time will only be processed the next working day, and dispatched the day after that.

Which is the best rubber carpet underlay?

Here at British Flooring, we supply some of the best carpet underlays on the market, including Plushwalk 12mm which is a luxury PU foam underlay.

Although this underlay provides unrivalled comfort underfoot, we are also proud to offer a variety of rubber carpet underlays – each offering superb durability and excellent sound insulation properties.

One of our most popular rubber underlays includes the Royal Supreme, available for £98.46. This is a thick and heavy rubber waffle underlay that is guaranteed to provide a luxurious feel underfoot. Reducing noise levels by 46dB, it’s a fantastic choice for noisy environments and can be used with all types of surfaces (i.e. wood, concrete, asphalt, etc).

If you’d prefer a cheaper alternative, we recommend the Duralay Gold 65lb. This rubber carpet underlay has a stitched backing that helps to increase longevity whilst improving the thickness and performance of your carpet.
