Underlayment for your hardwood floors is important. Even if you have never heard the word before, you soon will recognize why this is true. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why it’s worth to invest in this part of the process when you need new hardwood floors in your home.
A solid hardwood floor is easier to walk across. One of the ways you can tell something is wrong with your floors is when they start to feel unstable. The subfloor underneath the boards can be damaged during the installation or replacement process, which is why it’s essential to rely on professionals who know what they’re doing and won’t try to rush the project.
Helps Cushion the Floor
Cushioning the floor is too important to ignore. Still, you might not know what this means at first. The underlayment protects the floor against damage left behind by repeated foot traffic. This helps extend the lifespan of the floors before and repairs, refinishing, or replacement becomes necessary.
Cuts Down on Noise
A noisy floorboard can be irritating, whether you are trying to sneak into the kitchen for a late-night snack or not. Having noisy hardwood floors can test your patience since the sound is so annoying. Underlayment can also deaden the noise coming from the feet of your kids and pets as they run and play.
Insulating different parts of your home becomes even more critical as winter approaches. You would put insulation in your walls or your attic, so putting some underneath your floors isn’t out of the question. When you need more insulation, ask about how you can get an underlayment put down first!
