Q:Do I have to glue this product down first or do I just roll it out and begin laying my vinyl flooring?
by|Jul 3, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The Air Guard underlayment is used for laminate and engineered floating floor installations. We do not recommend using the Air Guard for vinyl floor installations. For vinyl flooring, we recommend our Sound Barricade model 70-197 which may be used as s double glue down installation with our Roberts 7350 adhesive. Customer Care

          This product worked very well as underlayment for LVP installation. I loved the built in tape! This was also very economical compared to other brands names. I would recommend!

          Works
          Got this after reading reviews from the cheapest and expensive ones. I got this to prevent mold and mildew but not sure if this works. The cushion was felt when I stepped on the new flooring vs just hardwood and the footsteps are not obvious so it delivers. The subfloor was prepped to reduce or eliminate the squeaking noise prior to application and the areas that we can’t do anything more was fixed by placing this underlayment.

            Used two of these Roberts Airguards for the concrete floor in my finished basement as placed underneath new Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring installed to replace carpeting when the house was built in 2015. . Lining up and connecting the sticky-taped seaming from section to section was extremely easy to install and work with and, while the plank flooring has padding of its own, this extra seal and protection works well for my basement floor.

            Easy to install. Like the features. Gives the floor the exact cushioned feel that we were hoping for. With AirGuard the laminate on the concrete floor doesn't feel like boards on cement.

            Worked
            We did a small room for my wife (she shed) 12x20. We used this product to place under vinyl floor. Works but were not able to find red color only blue but after calling company I was assured color does not matter. Did not giving 5 stars due to how easy it tears.

              This stuff is awesome. I typically use the cheap one and it’s a pain to work with. This ones more money but actually lays flat and you get something for your money, unlike the cheap one. I will always use this in the future

              Really easy to install, and doesn’t move once you put it in place. Definitely buy it again.

              This floor underlay was very nice. It lays down easy and has a flap at one edge to use for overlapping rows without adding anything but minimal thickness. This was so easy to work with while installing. The 2mm thickness was just fine. One must be careful when installing as it can be torn easily if you slip with the hammer or lay any power tools on it. I mainly was attracted to this material over the others because of the 5 in 1 properties. It was not the most expensive nor the least expensive, but somewhere in the middle. For my needs I would certainly use it again. I purchased the larger roll to reduce the overall square ft cost and eliminate the need for multiple rolls of material. The only complaint was that about halfway thru my roll I found it had been spliced by the manufacturer and it was a very messy splice which had to be removed to allow it to work correctly. All in all a great product and worked well for my laminate flooring.

              Great product. Easy to work with and the adhesive strip to bond sections together is clutch. However, for two pieces of plastic bonded together with some styrofoam balls in the middle, it’s pricey. Consideridering per roll there’s probably $5 in material.
