Solid wood flooring is beautiful, and if you want to ensure that it remains beautiful year after year, it's important to start with the right foundation. What underlay you use is just as important as what flooring you choose - it's kind of a package deal.
Fortunately, we understand the whole flooring package here at Floormaker, and that means we have plenty of high-quality underlays that you can choose from when ordering your new wood floor.
Underlay is important as it prevents your flooring from becoming damaged. It also reduces noise pollution and helps to keep your home insulated. As well as being extremely practical, underlay provides a cushion which ultimately makes your solid wood flooring more comfortable underfoot whilst also helping to protect it.

This underlay product includes a damp-proof membrane that prevents moisture from entering your solid wood boards. This damp-proof underlay evens out flooring whilst protecting the boards, so you can rest assured that your flooring will continue to look beautiful for years to come.
Fibreboard underlay is perfect for solid wood flooring since it removes the problem of the wood's ripples or waves giving to a flat foundation. It also helps with sound reduction and comfort. It can be placed on existing floorboards to protect your new solid wood flooring.
Another great option for underlay is foam board - very similar to fibreboard (see above), but with higher insulation properties. Foam board is resistant to heavy loads and is a fantastic solution for uneven surfaces.
