The Best Flooring Underlayment....Ever

AirGuard 100 sq. ft. 40 in. x 30 ft. x 2 mm 5-in-1 Underlayment with Microban for Laminate and Engineered Wood Floors

When it comes to having a sound and sturdy foundation for your floors, choosing the right underlayment when the new flooring calls for it is extremely important.

In this post, I'll briefly go over Home Depot's newest underlayment system found at your local store's flooring department. 

For any new flooring installation that calls for an underlayment to be placed down before the flooring goes over it (such as laminate and some engineered wood planks), having a quality underlayment is crucial and extremely important.

In fact, a high quality underlayment provides much more protection, cushioning, and even moisture control where it will be placed.

In the case of the Roberts AirGuard 5-in-1 Premium Underlayment, it does just that and even more versus any conventional underlayment we carry!

As shown above, the thousands of spherical polyshims help the new flooring give better cushion and airflow throughout the underlayment. 

This is important for areas where the new flooring can come in contact with water on a regular basis, like a kitchen or bathroom. This airflow coupled with the moisture barrier reduces the chance of any bacteria or mold growth underneath your new floors.

Of course, this technology also makes for a much quieter floor as well. With any new flooring installation, the quieter the subfloor will make for a less noisy new floor. 

No underlayment or floor type will be as effective as making sure the subfloor first will be solid and secured to the floor joists, especially in the case of a plywood based subfloor. 

Ensure that all creaks and uneven areas are addressed before any installation of a new floor. Once this is done, a good underlayment can further make the floors quieter once installed properly. 

This product is also perfect for radiant heated floors, which is great for solving any cold floors you may have. 

And last but not least, another reason what makes this underlayment so incredible is its ease of use.

It has existing 4 inch overlapping seals and can be easily cut to fit any shape or size room you will encounter.

It will literally be a sound investment for you!
