Underlays and Acoustic Underlays for Wood Flooring

Here at The Solid Wood Flooring Company we only recommend and supply the best underlays for your floor.  To highlight, wherever possible we recommend you glue your floor directly to your subfloor (fully bond).  However, there may be some circumstances wherein you’ll need to ‘float’ the floor. This is where these high quality underlays come in.  It is important to note that when floating a wood floor you should always glue the tongue and groove edges of the boards together using high quality D3 PVA glue such as our recommended Sika D4 adhesive.  We can supply either of these options from our stock range:

TimberTech2 Silver Plus Underlay

Suitable for hardwood or laminate floors.  This foil backed underlay suits the vast majority of floating floor installations and can be used with under floor heating.

Please note, even foil backed underlays do not provide a ‘DPM’ (Damp Proof Membrane), prior to installing your floor you must always check the moisture content and humidity of the room to determine if you require an additional sealant or DPM.  For more information see our technical page: Damp Proof Membrane Sealants for Subfloors.
