    Comments about 15LB Felt Paper:

    I put this under a pre-finished, red oak floor. Noise was a non-issue. The room was interior, so heat transfer a non-issue.

    This product works just fine for what I wanted. Very easy to cut and place on subfloor, easy to install planks onto paper and much less expensive than the other lines. This product is not for everyone, but worked for me.

                    This product worked great & was less costly than that sold locally in other stores. We used it when installing our new Strand bamboo flooring over an older wood floor that was too stained & worn to refinish. Did the prep work, stapled the felt down & cleat nailed our new floor planks- NO SQUEAKS! Love it!!!

                        About 10 feet into the roll, there was a fold that ran for about 8-10 feet. It caused a tear that made that part impossible to use at full width. Otherwise, fine.

                          The product unrolled easily and the lines on the paper helped to keep things straight. At one point it was left in the sunlight too long and melted a little bit. User error!

                              No. This is a good vapor barrier but not used under floating flooring. You can use either Foam Underlayment, Eco Silent Sound, Bellawood Premium Underlayment, or Quiet Walk underlayment for floating floors.

                          • Q:

                            Can i use this under my laminate wood flooring with pad already attached? I just bought 500sq ft of Dream Home - Nirvana PLUS 10mm Madison River Elm Laminate wood flooring. Its spec's are 10mm moisture-resistant core PLUS a 2mm pre-glued sound-proofing foam underlay. It is being installed in a singlewide mobile home that had carpet over plywood. I have removed the carpet and repaired all imperfections in the plywood under it. I have been told not to use an extra padding like the "ECO Silent Sound underlayment" or the "quiet walk" because it will cause it to feel to "springie" due to the fact it already has a padding on it. I was also advisded not to use 6mil polly sheeting because it will not let the plywood breath ( in a mobile home with crawl space under the home ) and eventually cause it to trap the moisture and damage the plywood.


                            please advise. thank you.

                              15lb felt paper is a vapor barrier and not a moisture barrier. 15lb felt paper or White Silcone Paper could be used if you suspect some moisture vapor from the crawlspace.

                              Laminates having pre-attached padding can be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities and are highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners and building specifiers.

                            When using 15lb pound felt for underlayment, why is it not recommended to overlap the felt?

                              A:

                              Black felt or roofing paper installed under hardwood is considered a moisture vapor retarder, slowing down or retarding moisture migration. Naturally occurring warm moist outside air will rise and pass through the underside of the subflooring in the home. Asphalt saturated felt paper allows air transmission while offering some protection against moisture condensation which can adversely affect the floor. Moisture vapor retarders are recommended for rooms over basements, crawl spaces and radiant heat. In addition, asphalt felt paper tends to seal around nails and staples as well as reduce the friction that occurs when the flooring slides against the subfloor, allowing the wood flooring easy assembly. Red rosin flooring paper is a uniform flexible felt of organic fibers impregnated with red organic dye. This high-quality, heavyweight building paper can be used for a protective covering and liner. Its primary function is to reduce the friction that occurs when the flooring slides against the subfloor, allowing the wood flooring to slide together more easily. Red Rosin Paper is not waterproof. Avoid its use in suspected moisture areas.

                              A 6 to 8 mil poly sheeting moisture barrier should be laid for floating floors for an On or Below grade Concrete subfloor. Overlap seams 4-6" and tape with duct tape. Overlay perimeter 3-4" up wall. Then lay approved underlayment. Eco Silent Sound or Bellawood Premium Underlayment has the compression strength to accommodate laminate flooring with pre-attached padding.
