Questions & Answers

How does this material allow water to evaporate if it is water-proof on both sides? Would it not just trap water?

Asked by: Katie
This material lets air circulate beneath the floor level to allow concrete and the earth below it to interact as it normally does in construction. It is probably not suitable if there is active water involved or very damp locations. It makes a great underlayment on concrete floors. Helps add a soft feel to the installed flooring.

My basement floor is cold. Does it help to make the warm?

Asked by: Katrina2018
Yes: This product helps somewhat with minimizing a cold floor radiant in preventing direct contact with the sub floor and the top flooring, but that's not the main function of this product.

Can you use this over old vinyl flooring then new laminate floor? No plan to take old vinyl floor due to asbestos in it.

Asked by: Ja
My experience with this product has been very good. My application involved laying product on slab floor then covering with 1/4" exterior grade plywood then vinyl sheet on top of that. I think that as long as your base vinyl is flat and not too soft this product should work great. You may want to consider tacking it down with patches of sheet glue to keep this underlayment from lifting off of existing vinyl substrate. Good luck!

100 sq. ft. 3.67 ft. x 27 ft. 6 in. Unique Air Gap Underlayment Prevents Mold and Mildew is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 123.

I have used this product under two types of flooring so far. I laid it, filled the top with thinset, then troweled a one inch thick pebblestone floor over the top for the first room. Next time I will not bother with the thinset for a pebblestone floor. In the second room I laid a carpet pad and carpet over the underlayment. Might be the softest floor I have ever walked on. I have a large area I need more protection than the 3/8 inch you get from one layer, so I am planning to thinset and put down a second layer. I tested a small area and that seemed to work well. I also tested the product with the epoxies I use for pebblestone floors and got no reaction. Tuff stuff.

Apparently they void the warranty if you carpet over the plywood laid over the 1 step. Said the nails on the tack strips would pierce the membrane (which is only around the edge) Even though you push hundreds of screws all over it securing the plywood. It doesn't mention this anywhere that I could find. You can only put flooring on this that snaps together. Also, the customer service was less than helpful.

I cut it into 14" strips and placed it above drain pipe and footer. It's very easy to work with and was able to get a nice even 90 degree bend or crease to make it meet the wall.

Very easy to deal with and my only recommendations I'd have given anyone: Use large shears to get a clean cut, instead of a box-cutter and maybe let the product relax overnight before cutting (I ended up having my children sit on it at both ends to try to keep it down and flush, while cutting).

Except for UPS losing one of my rolls and having to wait almost a month to get it, my experience was good the customer service credited some $ back and was helpful. Product is amazing absolutely happy with the research I did to find this for my basement. Easy install and pretty dang quiet.

It takes some time before I can say that wetness is not accumulated underneath the liner and i don't detect the smell of mold. I wish it would be sold as a 50ft option. I needed only 144sq ft but I had to buy 200.

Since the surface is rigid, it also made the installation of my flooring easier. ( I was able to mark the dmx with reference lines and shift my flooring when necessary. ) Will use again on next below grade install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product It's really a nice product but why it is rolled the other way? It made a little harder to lay it down. Is it supposed to be the white face is exposed so when you roll onto the floor, the blue will be on top?
