Why choose underlay?

Though frequently overlooked and dismissed as an unnecessary expense, flooring underlay acts as an insulator that can help you to save money on your energy bills whilst providing underfoot comfort and cushioning.

On top of this, it can provide an extra layer against noise – ideal for upstairs rooms or if you live in a flat. And because it performs like a shock absorber, it impacts the longevity of your floors.

There are various types of underlay for use with different flooring and different rooms. For example, carpet underlay helps carpets to bounce back from heavy wear and foot traffic, whereas laminate underlay protects the joints in the wooden planks and reduces the risk of flexing.

How to choose underlay

Choosing the right flooring underlay will ensure you get your money’s worth and, ultimately, prolong the lifespan of your floors. But to make the correct choice, you need to consider:

  • The type of sub-floor (i.e. concrete or wood subfloor)
  • The room where it will be fitted
  • How much sound and heat insulation you want
  • Your budget
