A: FloorMuffler is not designed for use in a flooring system that includes multiple underlayments. It should be installed directly over a plywood or concrete subfloor. It should be installed directly under laminate, hardwood, or engineered wood.
A: Yes. But then ask yourself what is the flooring going over this new sound barrier? If you are laying a simple engineered floor that literally floats on the underlayment, you will not be a happy camper. Your need to secure your new floor to the subfloor with a fastener like a 1" staple or a flooring nail. Laying down classical 3/4" thick hardwood flooring and nailing it in with 1 1/4 to 2" flooring staples will give you the most solid floor feel.
A: FloorMuffler UltraSeal can be used under Rigid Core flooring only if the plank is 5 mm or thicker. Always adhere to the rigid core flooring's installation instructions. The warranty will apply if these conditions (and those expressed on the warranty document) are met. FloorMuffler also offers the FloorMuffler LVT on homedepot.com for luxury vinyl tiles and planks that do not have a pre-attached pad.
A: FloorMuffler has not been tested for its ability to inhibit odors. The underlayment is not designed to prevent odors from traveling through flooring systems. It is unlikely that the underlayment will have an affect on the odor.
A: Yes. I used this on my flooring for the 2nd floor of a two family. Testing showed good noise and impact absorption with no noise being carried to room below.
A: It will have a minimal effect at best. Mike
