Laminate Flooring - Padding Attached
Laminate Flooring Padding Attached - The following products have a pre-attached underlayment or padding (they are the same product, they just can be referred to by both names) There are considerations to make when buying laminate flooring with pre-attached padding. First if you are installing over a concrete floor, you will need to lay down a separate moisture barrier. Typically visqueen is used. Since concrete always wicks up moisture... pre-attached padding is cut into strips to be applied to the flooring, and it is cut slightly short so it doesn't get in the way as you install the flooring. Therefore even if the pad itself has a moisture barrier built in it is not sufficient for a concrete subfloor since there are gaps in between the strips under the flooring. We test ALL our flooring before we sell it, we recommend you ALWAYS test samples of the flooring you want to purchase BEFORE you buy to ensure quality.
