Vinyl Flooring Underlayment
Luxury vinyl planks (LVP) have become a top choice for homeowners, taking the flooring industry by storm. This material is water-resistant or waterproof, affordable, and available in a wide range of styles to best meet your needs and design preferences.
Eco Cork Foam is here to provide complete protection for vinyl flooring systems at least 5 mm in thickness, delivering the support needed for a long-lasting, comfortable surface. Modern advances in the category mean that vinyl flooring durability has improved over the years. Most notably, the thicknesses have increased from 2mm to 6mm, plus. In addition, the core of the vinyl flooring is much more rigid. Click-lock vinyl flooring utilizes an innovative locking system that is similar to laminate flooring systems, creating a high-quality floor system that is easier to install and beautiful to look at. Our product relies on the perfect balance of cross-linked polyethylene foam and FSC-certified cork, delivering unmatched quality and durability for a variety of flooring installation projects in any level of your home.
Do I Need An Underlayment To Install Vinyl Flooring?
One question Eco Cork Foam receives a lot is whether or not a flooring underlayment is needed for luxury vinyl flooring. An underlayment is highly recommended for your new floors if:
- Your vinyl flooring does not come with a flooring underlayment attached.
- You plan on installing new flooring over concrete subfloors.
- Your subfloor is not perfectly smooth.
Eco Cork Foam underlayment cannot be used with all vinyl flooring products. ECF is only approved for use with vinyl flooring 5mm or thicker in residential applications. In addition, please consult with the Flooring Manufacturer’s Installation Instructions prior to starting your project. Improper use may cause poor performance and will result in voiding the ECF underlayment warranty.
