Underlayment for Laminate Floor Installed Over Tile
LESLIE: Elaine in Florida is on the line and is looking for some help with a flooring project. How can we help you?
ELAINE: Yes, hi. I’m in the process of – I purchased some Home Legend wood laminate.
ELAINE: Seven millimeters, I believe it is.
TOM: Elaine, the Home Legend’s people on their website recommend an underlayment with a combination of a 6-mil vapor barrier and a cushioning foam. But that’s only on concrete subfloors. I think because you’re putting this over tile, the best thing to use is just the cushioning foam.
ELAINE: OK, yeah.
TOM: It’ll make the floor lay nicer; it will make it a little bit more comfortable for you to walk on, as well.
ELAINE: Alright. Thank you so much. I appreciate your help.
TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
