Foam Underlay

Definition

A thin layer of foam put under laminate flooring to soften the feel of the floor, provide a sound barrier, and keep the imperfections in the existing flooring from being visible through the new flooring.

Also known as

Foam Underlayment

Cost Considerations

Foam underlay is a basic, inexpensive product. Other than thickness, there is not much difference between the options, so spending more doesn't add much real benefit.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
