Product Overview

The Roberts SVS Silicone Vapor Shield is an underlayment that is in a class by itself. Our SVS is made of 6 mil wet strength paper and has a baked silicone coating that won't allow moisture to penetrate though to your hardwood and engineered wood floors. It is ideal for staple and nail down installations. The proprietary manufacturing process produces a strong product that will not fall apart like red rosin, craft and wax papers do. Our SVS has been vigorously tested under multiple conditions for moisture permeability and is proven to be far-and-away the best rated underlayment paper for moisture protection. SVS also meets the recommended perm guidelines as set forth by the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA). The two sides of SVS make it easy to install with the matte finish down and the smooth surface up which allows installers to easily mark chalk lines and slide wood planks easily into position. Radiant Panel Association lab tests have confirmed that SVS is also suitable for use on radiant heated floors and has achieved accolades from the Radiant Heat Association. Our SVS is made in Canada with 100% recycled contents.

Answer: 
The product just lays flat, there is no adhesive and you're not supposed to staple it down. I started out stapling it and it made it worse because it could move slightly when I was stapling down my engineered hardwood and it caused "popping" sounds when you walk on the floor. Recommend buying a better product.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Have to use it and easy to install. was real easy to install and it has to be used. Great value. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Underlayment for Hardwood flooring We installed new hardwood flooring in two rooms of our home and used the Vapor shield as underlayment for the flooring. It rolled out easily and we had no issues at all in securing it to the sub-flooring with staples as recommended by the manufacturer. The underlayment cut quickly. A much cleaner product than the old roofing felt type underlayment products. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Deal Perfect product for under hardwood floors and very easy to install. May 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive, but effective vapor barrier Used as an underlayment for installing nail down, tongue and groove bamboo floors. Comes in rolls and cuts easily with scissors. August 18, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not a very good product This vapor shield was cheap in price and quality. I personally didn't like the product because no matter how hard you tried to get it perfectly flat, it would sometimes bubble under the wood. This causes popping sounds under the wood. I'm guessing it bunches up slightly when the wood is nailed through the tongue. Probably would be ok for a floating floor. I would recommend doing more research and finding a better product. February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than felt, more durable. I just followed the instructions, the underlayment went down easily, staying flat without any folds or creases. April 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Product This was so easy to use nothing else out there that compares to it. It made installation super fast because you could slide the planks across it. I would highly recommend to use this product and its environmentally friendly too! July 15, 2014
