Before you make your final decision on your new floor, take a quick minute to learn a little more about the different types of underlayment and what they’ll do for you.
It’s amazing the difference underlayment makes in the performance, feel and even sound as your pets scamper across it in the middle of the night. Didn’t think about that, huh? Well, at iFLOOR, we’ve thought of everything for you, and it’s important to us that your 100% satisfied with your purchase. Even the most minor annoyance can lead to a bad taste in your mouth, and nothing’s more annoying than waking up in the middle of the night when someone’s trying to tip-toe through the kitchen or the television from the other room is bouncing off every wall like a symphony. We understand the need to get out of this as inexpensively as possible and that’s why we offer it, but if this is a floor you expect to live on for the next several years, the devil is in the details, and the details are in the underlayment.
When choosing a flooring underlayment, air is the key. The more air in the material, the better it as an insulator and how it absorbs sound. Think about fiberglass insulation. It’s mostly air and most underlayments are foam, which is mostly air. This is why we love cork underlayment. It’s an amazing insulator, absorbs sound better than maybe any natural material in the world and our favorite, it’s born from a sustainable and renewable resource. And coincidentally, you can get it right here. Isn’t that lucky?
