Luxury vinyl in Woodbridge, VA from First American Carpet & Floors

Does luxury vinyl flooring need an underlayment?

Luxury vinyl flooring offers a wide variety of options and benefits that can help you create the perfect flooring experience in every room. But it often requires an underlayment that will add comfort and performance anywhere it is installed, so let’s find out more about that right now.

Luxury vinyl tile flooring and more

Whether you choose vinyl plank or luxury vinyl tile flooring, you might find an underlayment to be a necessary addition to your flooring installation. While it can add comfort, noise suppression, and a warmer touch in cool weather, it can also protect your floors from excessive wear and damage.

Some luxury vinyl comes with attached underlayments, so then you are set. However, if your chosen flooring does not, and you have a subfloor that is not perfectly level, that could transfer through to the top of your vinyl, depleting the lifespan prematurely.

With a good underlayment in place, you will enjoy your flooring longer and be more comfortable, especially in areas where you must stand for long periods. If you would like more information, feel free to visit us anytime to see them for yourself.
