Engineered for Easy Installation
ECF Underlayment is engineered for easy installation with a built-in 6 mil vapor barrier and self-sealing tape. ECF is made from a proprietary process that merges FSC-certified cork with cross-linked polyethylene foam to create a product that is thicker and stronger than the competition. ECF is easy to cut but won’t tear or rip during installation. As the only underlayment with a built-in vapor barrier, ECF eliminates the need to purchase a separate barrier and avoids added installation costs.
Another great resource is our blog, where we provide technical information and answers to all your questions. Check out our Installation FAQs for answers to questions like these:
