You’ll need it when installing luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP), and luxury vinyl tile. So, it’s a must-have option to install products like Mohawk Vintage View Butternut Birch and Wildwood hickory. It is designed to help reduce noise, prevent moisture buildup, and provide insulation, particularly with concrete floors, to help keep the room warm in cold weather. Vinyl flooring underlayment comes in a variety of materials, including foam, cork, and rubber, each with its own unique benefits and features, such as sound absorbing underlayment. It is easy to install and helps extend the lifespan of the luxury vinyl flooring by providing an additional layer of protection and stability. It also improves the comfort and longevity of waterproof vinyl flooring. Whether you're looking for a comfortable and quiet flooring option for a residential space or a durable and practical flooring solution for a commercial space, self-leveling underlayment can help create a comfortable and functional environment that lasts for years to come.
