Whether it’s a new floor covering you are installing either in a home or commercial building, the assurance your investment will carry well into the future depends on the decisions you make today. The selection of a quality flooring underlayment matters because while soon “out of sight”, it is under foot for years, helping to maintain the floor’s original appearance. Floor covering manufacturers require a smooth solid foundation be provided underneath that will perform equally well over the life of their product. Udek®, a quality high-performance hardwood underlayment panel, meets or exceeds all vinyl flooring manufacturers’ requirements.

Why do I need a flooring underlayment?

New floor coverings, especially vinyl, require an absolutely smooth and durable foundation underneath to prevent the subfloor or old floor surfaces from showing irregularities. Vinyl flooring manufacturers require a sound foundation under their product to protect their warranties, and Udek® meets this requirement.
