Pergo FloorMate is the perfect companion for your new floating laminate or engineered wood floors. It can even be used with Pergo laminate with attached pad to enhance the performance of your floor. This premium underlayment with moisture barrier included creates a more natural sound in the room and helps to reduce sound transmission to rooms below. It also provides better thermal insulation, helping to keep your room temperature where you want it. The easy to use fan-fold underlayment covers 100 square feet per pack and lays flat when you install it unlike traditional rolled underlayment which will curl back when you unroll it, making installation more difficult. The easy cut guidelines on Pergo FloorMate make it simple to trim to the right size.

Brand

Pergo

Pergo history goes back to 1977, when we revolutionized the (commercial) flooring industry by inventing the first laminate floor. The idea came from a brainstorming committee set up to suggest new applications for high-pressure laminate made by Perstorp, a leading Swedish chemical company. The idea became a product, evolved to a new division and eventually gave birth to a new company, Pergo.Since 2013, the Pergo brand is owned by Mohawk Industries, Inc., the world's largest flooring company with operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Pergo products are manufactured by the flooring division of Unilin BV, based in Belgium.

The following questions and answers were gathered from multiple online resources. We wanted to to provide our readers an all-in-one place to research flooring underlayments.

My subfloor is somewhat rough and uneven, will this pergo underlayment help with this?

The surface of any subfloor must be flat, smooth, and dry.

How good is this product for smoothing out imperfections in a concrete basement floor?

The FloorMate underlayment can smooth out minor imperfections. However, read the installation guide and pay special attention to the sections about concrete subfloors. The following is information about smoothing out the subfloor: Check the floor for flatness. If the concrete or terrazzo subfloor has excessive voids or variations, a leveling compound can be used to bring it up to specifications. (See Subfloor Requirements/General.) Low areas greater than 3⁄16″ in a 10′ radius should be filled in using a Portland cement and latex-based floor leveler. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for mixing the filler, and be sure to allow it to dry completely. High spots or ridges above 3 ⁄16″ within a 10′ radius (or 1⁄16 of an inch within a 3 foot radius) must be
ground down. Also please make sure you perform a moisture test and use a vapor barrier if installing over concrete. These instructions are included in the installation guide as well.

How thick is the vapor barrier?

The FloorMate underlayment is 3mm thick.

Can I still use this for Pergo flooring that does not have the attached pad?

The Pergo FloorMate can be used with Pergo laminate flooring with or without an attached pad.

Is this a good choice for basement concrete floors?

Pergo can be used in basement with concrete floors as long as there are no sump pumps or floor drains.

Can you use other laminate over this underlayment or does it have to be Pergo?

Pergo FloorMate is the perfect companion for your new floating laminate or engineered wood floors.

Does it matter which direction FloorMate is laid in relation to laminate floor?

The instructions for Pergo FloorMate do state to ensure that the underlayment seams run
perpendicular to the flooring seams.

Can you use 2 layers of the product under Pergo laminate floors?

Do not recommend you use 2 layers of FloorMate under your laminate flooring. For planks without attached underlayment, install over a single layer of underlayment appropriate for laminate floors, such as FloorMate. For planks with attached underlayment, it is acceptable to install Pergo FloorMate underlayment prior to flooring installation if desired. Make sure to follow the Pergo FloorMate installation instructions, taking special care to seal all foam edges with sealing tape and repair all rips and perforations in the underlayment vapor barrier prior to flooring installation. A separate vapor barrier should not be used in conjunction with Pergo FloorMate as a vapor barrier is already a part of this underlayment.
