Q:Installing this engineered hardwood over tile. Do I need to use the underlay?
by|May 16, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  This engineered hardwood plank flooring is specifically designed without a pad, allowing for versatile installation over various existing surfaces such as tile, wood, concrete, and vinyl. However, if concerns persist regarding moisture or sound, we recommend utilizing the provided additional Abatec underlayment with the flooring. For personalized guidance tailored to your project, consulting a professional installer is advisable to determine whether additional underlayment is necessary for your specific project needs. Thank you for your interest in Lifeproof Arctic Gates Oak 0.27 in. x 6.5 in. W Engineered Hardwood Click Lock Waterproof Flooring. Good luck with your project.

          Do Not Buy This Flooring
          We did a lot of research and choose to go with Lifeproof Waterproof Engineered Hardwood Flooring because of their description. DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD "... great choice for areas of high-traffic due to the hardness of the wood..." Not a hardwood. Very soft and scratches often from anything. Not for high-traffic or any traffic for that matter. Manufacturer claiming installation faults for not covering the warranty. Installation has nothing to do with a faulty product that scratches so easily.

            Beautiful and timeless
            I picked it up myself so there was no delivery. This floor is beautiful and has been in about a year and is holding up well. I soaked a sample in water for days before buying it and noticed no degredation. The only thing I can fault it for is the finish is a little dull and dust seems to cling to it. I used a cleaner on it that adds a little gloss and that seems to be helping. There are no repeats and it has such lovely variation. The advantage of real wood.

              White Oak 7 Lookalike
              We have 7 inch solid wood white oak floors in a matte natural finish throughout our entire home. We recently finished our all season sunroom and wanted something that matched closely. For this project we selected the Shenandoah Lifeproof floor and it is a near dupe for our Bona matte finished White Oak floors. The average person would not know the difference and we love the waterproof durability in that space. Highly recommend.

                Arctic Gates - Great Product for Basement Makeover
                We used the Arctic Gates for our basement makeover. The product is genius - the ease of LVT with the beauty of hardwood. We were really happy with the quality and the ease of installation. Very DIY friendly. The only downside was a few of the single boxes that were delivered to our house had crumpled corners. We weren't able to use those pieces unfortunately but we had enough that it didn't matter. I recommend buying from the in store stock or purchasing a whole pallet and returning leftovers.

                  So many knots, not like online pics
                  I loved this flooring in the store, yet once installed, there were so many imperfections and knots which look unrealistic. The knots in full light appear grey, as if someone painted them or smeared clay in the center. The advertised pics show mostly knot free- which is certainly not the case unfortunately.

                    Very nice flooring
                    Have had this flooring in our living room for a few months, so far we are very happy with it, seems to be durable and have received many compliments on the look. Only slight negative I would say is some of the pieces look very fake, like weird wood grain attempt but for the most part this wasn’t a problem and I just put those pieces where our furniture would be, also keep an eye out for small chips on the corners and put those somewhere out of the main routes.

                      Beautiful and durable
                      I was skeptical, as we were installing in our master bath, but it could not be more beautiful. The varying size planks, the rich depth of color and how well it stands up to daily water makes this the best choice we could have made for our master. It smelled a bit odd for a couple of weeks after install but ultimately settled in and no more odor!
