Q:We removed old 1'x1' vinyl tiles from the subfloor which has left some (very thin) adhesive residue. We plan on putting Lifeproof lvp over the floor. Could this product be placed directly on top of the subfloor with residual adhesive?
by|Mar 8, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for this very important question. As there is no way of knowing what the "old 1'x1' vinyl is made of in addition to the adhesive you will need to use a 6 mil. poly moisture barrier over the sub-floor prior to using LifeProof Universal Underlayment.

    by|Jan 28, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  QuicPrep may be reduced because it is being discontinued and being replaced by Lifeproof Universal Underlayment. It is the same with all the same features and benefits.

          QuicPrep 100 sq. ft. Universal Underlayment can be used for multiple floating floors. I put mine under LifeProof. It comes fan folded, accordion like. The package had directions displayed on it. There are directions at HD Online. There is a HD video on YouTube to view too. The moisture barrier protects against moisture vapor. The 1.5 mm foam density enhances the floor performance, and protects against imperfections in the floor. It helps reduce sound transmission too. The high R-value does help keep the floor warm. I just placed one end down and walked backwards and it unfolds itself. It lays flat. Once it was down I taped both ends, and the edge against the wall. I butted the second row against the first. I taped the ends of the second row. I taped down the middle of the butted edge. It is extremely easy to layout. It is just as easy to cut with the cutting grid. The only tools needed are scissors, or a box cutter, and tape. I had no trouble laying the floor on top of the QP. Walking on the LP with the QP under it has more cushioning. Not a lot like a carpet pad. But, I could definitely feel the difference between the LP with QP, and the LP on concrete. It does add more warmth than just plan concrete. It supports the joints too. This will be nice when heavy furniture is placed on a joint. I didn't plan on using underlayment. My floors passed the moisture test, and the LP has a built in underlayment. But, I have an area in a BR and the closet that are always cold, damp like. I wanted something for these areas. The floor feels so much better with this under it. I wish I had used this on all the rooms. All underlayment is pricey. But, I would recommend budgeting the QP into the job. The ease of use, and no real time lost from the job to lay it out. And the added support, comfort, and warmth it provides makes it worth the cost.

          Thanks for your detailed review. FYI for you and anyone reading look for LifeProof Universal which is launching at the Home Depot very soon! It will provide the same great features and benefits under the powerful LifeProof brand! https://www.instagram.com/lifeproofuniversal/ Pak-LiteFlooringUnderlayment

          I am using this underlayment for a basement remodel project under vinyl plank flooring. This product comes in a fan-folded up form - it is a 100 sq. ft. package. It unfolds nicely lays flat and is only 1.5 mm thick. The product has a grid on top and is helpful for measuring and cutting. If you use more than one package, the seams should be taped (sold separately). It is XPS foam so it has some R value and sound deadening and it has a built in moisture barrier, which is great for my basement project. It is fast and easy to lay down and work with.

          The main advantage of this Quickprep underlayment for laminate and LVP is that it is very easy to use. It cuts easily and unfolds easily. I like that it has a grid imprint so you can make exact cuts. The thing I didn’t like is that it is awfully thin. I’ve used a few different types of underlayment, including the foam type and the one with the little foam balls, and those two are much thicker and give a nice feel to the floor. This one is just very thin, so technically you’re using an underlayment and it is a moisture barrier but I don’t think it will provide much in terms of sound absorption or cushion. I had to layer it in several high traffic areas to try to provide better cushion.

          I really do love these grid underlayments, they make jobs so much easier. The cost is higher than a typical underlayment but it really does save time and waste in my mind when you're able to more accurately cut and use your material. The QuicPrep Universal Underlayment is a versatile and easy to install product, and you don't have to worry about material binding up or folding as you're laying your floor. This material cuts super easy with a blade and you can lay it two different way, you can lay it down and press it against a wall while cutting the seam, or you can you measure ahead of time and cut. I prefer this product over typical vapor barrier installs. Aside from this being a versatile and easy to use product, I do have two cons to share. The first is that there is no included tape seam, you have to buy the tape separately, when other products come with it installed. The second is that it's listed as a sound dampener and in all of my installations I've had to use a product twice this thick to get any noticeable sound dampening improvements from upstairs levels. This product is not quite 1/16" thick, and all sound dampening that I've installed prior required at least 1/8" thick to make a noticeable difference. You could probably fold it over and double up on it if that is a concern of yours, but that makes it twice as costly to install. Overall, I will continue to purchase this product for downstairs applications or upstairs areas over a garage or outdoor living space, but for upstairs I will be purchasing a thicker material.

          For an extremely thin underlayment this product boasts some impressive stats. It is very light and easy to unfold and lays flat. The grid pattern adds clarity for cutting around obstacles, but don't rely on the dimensions of the squares unless you are working with Metric measurements. They are almost 1/2" squares, but do not measure out over the long run.

          I ordered this universal underlayment for a basement remodel project, and it looks like it'll work fine. We live in the north east, and in the winters our concrete slab basement floor gets pretty cold. I'm planning to finish our basement with updated electrical, a secondary heat source, and framed, insulated, and drywalled walls, I wanted to make sure the space wouldn't go unused because the space was still getting cold, or that people were getting cold feet. I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to put down for flooring yet (self-adhesive carpet squares, or a thin but softer water-resistant laminate), but I needed an underlayment with a moisture barrier, and an R-value for insulation. This stuff met the bill 100% and it's only 1.5 millimeters thick. The installation looks to be the easiest of any underlayment out there as well. Just lay it down with the grid on top, unfold it, and use the grid to cut around obstacles, then tape all the rows of the underlayment together and you're done. No adhesive required. And if you need any help/instruction, the product listing page for this on Home Depot has how to Videos, as well as all the information you'll need to pull the trigger on this product and install it. Great underlayment with moisture barrier and R-value for basement projects, and affordable too.

          i ordered the Quicprep universal underlayment for use with a luxury vinyl plank flooring that i installed in our laundry room. the flooring can with a backing attached to it but there are advantages to using a separate underlayment that serves as a moisture barrier, a sound reducer and gives some insulation value. this underlayment is very easy to install, it lays flat , is easy to trim and has two sets of grid lines to use as guides when making necessary cuts. it is only 1.5 mm thick and the seams must be taped together when it is installed with separately purchased tape. i have used a different brand underlayment from a major flooring manufacturer that is very similar to this product, it contains the same amount of square footage, is twice as thick ( 3mm ) , comes with self attached tape and the price is the same cost. i would only recommend this product if it was all that was available due to the cost being the same as the name brand product.

          The QuicPrep Premium Underlayment comes in a 100 sq. ft. package, measuring 47 inches wide by 25 feet 8 inches long by 1.5 mm thick. This is Universal Underlayment for QuicTile, Luxury Vinyl Plank, Laminate, and Engineered Hardwood. It works well under floating floors. Installation is an easy 4-step process: Unfold it with the grid-side up, smooth it out with no overlaps, trim it with a razor knife using the cutting grid as a guide, and tape the sections together to keep them from shifting. It goes directly over a smooth surface of cement, tile, or any other smooth surface. Now apply your floating flooring material. It is quick and easy. I’ll be using this on my basement hallways and adjoining utility room. Each package covers 100 square feet so measure your total area to determine how many packages you will need. Proudly made in the USA.

          So far I had experience with “sold in rolls” underlayments from other producers. QuicPrep surely have certain advantageous. It does not bend when you put it on the floor. It has square patterns through the whole length, which is good to have to make straight cuts. The latter may help also with directing laminate or other planks and see if with tapping you sift from one side or another (very important in the beginning of the way). Top layer is smooth and filmy (this layer will provide resistance to water), while the other side is spongy. Thickness is only ~1.5 mm. Good product. Recommend to try!

          This is a review of the QuicPrep 100 Sq. ft 3.9 tv X 25.7 ft X 0.059 inches universal underlayment for QuicTile, vinyl plank, laminate and eng hardwood. The underlayment is 1.5 MM thick high density XPS foam. This underlayment is very light weight. It is about 45 inches wide and the floor is folded like a xylophone. Each of the sections stay together, please see my attached pictures. This is a great design and looks like it will create 100 sq ft of a vapor and sound reducing barrier. This is very high dense foam material used. It cuts very easily with a utility knife making extremely installer friendly regardless of your experience. There is tape you can get from Home Depot to attach the rows of this material together, ensuring it’s vapor barrier integrity. This also has an R-value so it helps to retain heat in the room. It helps to smooth out minor floor imperfections. This is a great product and looking forward to installing my new underlayment flooring next month.
