Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dilinger Good stuff.
I've installed laminate flooring before with foam underlayment. This was my first time using cork. The laminate doesn't feel bouncy or sound hollow AT ALL. I'm sold on cork under laminate.
I didn't have any problems putting this down. Others reported having trouble keeping it flat, but for whatever reason mine stayed flat (I did tape the edges down to make it easier to work with).

We laid 12mm laminate over a concrete slab in our family room. We wanted a quality underlayment to keep the laminate quiet, add insulation and insure a nice 'feel' when we walked on it.
After a thorough cleaning and laying and sealing a 6 mil vapor barrier the cork went down quickly and easily. I rolled it out, cut it and taped it without any help.
I purchased 300 square feet for a 250+ square foot family room, so I'll be ordering more when I am ready to lay the laminate over a wood subfloor (no vapor barrier) in our living and dining rooms. I am even considering laying it under the ceramic tile we'll be laying in the kitchen.
I recommend this product to anyone who wants a quality underlayment.

First 3 rolls ordered were continuous rolls this one is 4 x 50 foot sheets. Not exactly what I wanted, but need to finish the job. Wish the specification details stated this or would have gone to a different distributor. Roll was also a bit torn up from shipping. Don't have time to wait for another one if returned it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sooksook Cork underlay is exactly what the doctor ordered
Our apartment required some stringent noise-supressing underlay for the hardwood floor installation and we struggled to find the 1/4 inch thick requirement at local stores. Luckily Home Depot had some online that we were able to have shipped relatively close that worked out great. The price was right, and the QEP200 fit the bill perfectly. Install overtop of the concrete and underneath our laminate was relatively easy and it really is quiet now when we walk on the flooring.
Just make sure to take care when you're carrying and transporting it! The cork rips easily so handle gently.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CJMatt Mostly easy to install
I purchased the cork underlayment roll to put in our living room underneath Millstead click together engineered hardwood. It was very easy to unroll, cut, and tape sections together. Working around things like our fireplace hearth was very easy as the cork broke/cut with a little bit of pressure. The only problem with it is that since it is from a roll, it is hard to get the ends to lie down flat. I set boxes of the wood flooring along the edges for a few hours to try to uncurl it, but it didn't do much. It was difficult to get the wood floor started because we were battling the underlayment curl as well as trying to line up the floor tongue and groove. Now that the floor is installed, we are happy with the cork cushioning and noise reducing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dae Keep This Product Manufacturer! - Made in Portugal - Beautiful Cork Underlayment
Delivery of the cork underlayment rolls was fast and the products arrived in well-suited containment packaging. The cork was a full quarter inch thick and beautiful from end to end. This is an excellent product that provides a moisture barrier and sound damping for a below-grade concrete floor on which a large rug has been installed. I will be using this product again as I replace carpeting throughout my home.
