If you're installing laminate flooring, also known as a floating floor, you may need to consider purchasing subfloor rolls. The subfloor for laminate floors is essential since it allows the floor to float, provides stability, support, noise reduction, and supports the locking systems between the boards. There are several different subfloor options available and selecting the most appropriate one for your project can be a bit complicated. The type of subfloor you need depends on your application: tile, wood, vinyl, laminate, etc.
Installing a floating floor over an existing floating floor could cause problems in the future and the warranty could be void. The subfloors suitable for laminate floors are very thin layers of foam that slightly cushion the floor, but do not allow perceptible movement underfoot. If you're installing laminate flooring in a basement, you may be at risk of absorbing moisture from your cement subfloor. Created specifically for the vinyl floor covering industry, the Enstron base, with its practical nailing pattern, is the preferred product for both builders and floor suppliers.
The subfloor provides the fundamental support of the room while the subfloor is what supports the material of the floor itself, intended to improve and protect the floor.
