If installing laminate on this, do you also need 6 mil plastic over the concrete before this?
Yes – there is a vapor barrier element to this, but not like 6 mil plastic. Still need the vapor barrier.
I have joint problems, does this provide good cushioning or would I be better with a rubber underlayment?
If you are looking for something cushy, this is probably not for you. This product is basically thin packing foam stuck to a cheap plastic table cloth, not saying it wont function or is a bad product, just delicate.
There is a die that has the foam material exposed and a side with blue plastic. Which side is up?
Foam. The plastic is the moisture barrier.
Will this work under carpet?
This is only 3m, whereas carpet padding is usually at least 1/3″ or even thicker. It wouldn’t give you much cushion.
Is this recommended for nail down flooring?
The flooring underlayment is ideal for laminate flooring hardwood flooring & engineered hardwood flooring.
Will this raise up the flooring layer over it? I need something to compensate for what I have to what I have to put down.
A very slight amount. 1/8 of an inch, or about the thickness of linoleum.
Does anyone know the compressibility of this product?
It would compress to half its thickness.
Where is this item made? VOC?
