is this to be installed primarily over concrete? Or is over linoleum ok? What is the thickness of the pad?

Do I need the underpayment if I install vinyl floor in the basement?

Asked by: Katrina
After reading tremendous articles about basement. I would suggest you purchase a underlayment. Your basement has a cement floor which is very porous. With that being said the moisture from the soil will breathe through your cement and will create mold if you don't let it breathe and give it space to dry. What the underlayment allows is that moisture to escape and dry underneath your floor. I use this DMX product in my basement. I can't tell you its the best thing yet because I just installed it about a month ago and won't know the long term advantages until about a year a two and really figure it out. But with all the reading I did, this is the route I chose. Good Luck

I know this is far from the intended use BUT can I use this on concrete patio under an outdoor rug to prevent mold etc?

Asked by: Kate
Im not entirely sure, however, I will say that i put this down on my concrete basement floor and before i was able to put the flooring down on top of this I ended up getting a bit of water in my basement. This was the first time i ever had water in the basement and it wasn't much, but i soaked it up, and ran a dehumidifier. I then put the underlayment back down and within two days had mold growth underneath it. My basement is not yet finished, and i don't have the walls up, so airflow was not an issue. I am not convinced that this product does what it says it does. As a further precaution i painted the concrete with a mold barrier paint purchased from the home depot, and even with that and the DMX on the floor i had small areas of mold growth. I am actually kind of disappointed as this stuff isn't cheap.

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.

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 142.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from good product but some drawbacks ordered and put down 1,000 sq. ft. of this when refinishing my basement. Put 10mm luxury vinyl plank right on top of it. Did days of research on floor underlayments; whether I needed one or not, what type - OSB or vapor barriers like this, competitive products, etc. I settled on this because it allows water to run underneath it in case there ever is a leak in the basement, it has the foam attached so there is no clicking noise when walking on it, its a vapor barrier, makes the floor softer to walk on, its very thin profile, and of course its ease of use and transport versus using OSB. While it does virtually everything it claims to do there is one major drawback and one really insulting factor. The drawback is that it comes in 40 foot rolls rolled up really tight. I unrolled it and let it sit for 4 days until it looked like it was as even as it could get but after putting it down, it was still wavy and made laying the floor very difficult as it would bubble up all over the place. This ended up leaving a couple of hollow spots under the floor and trust me I did everything I could to flatten the stuff out, it just wouldn't flatten. I'm sure when the manufacturer uses it and makes claims about it they're taking it right out of production, not after it's been rolled up for a month or two in a 1 square foot box.This brings me to the insult - they make you buy their tape to tape the seams together at $10/ roll with only a hundred feet of tape per roll. I needed 7 rolls of tape. That is ROBBERY for some plastic tape. And I'm sure if you try to use regular box tape ($2/250 ft roll) they will void the warranty. It's a small, crafty way to milk pure profit out of you that damages the experience. Like a car dealer charging you $100 for a gallon of gas to drive the car off the lot.
