Underlayment under New Tile Floors?
Absolutely! It’s an easy installation that improves the overall performance of the finished floor in several ways. For example, UltraLayer®, from MP Global Products, smoothes out little imperfections in the subfloor and, under ceramic tile, helps suppress lateral cracks from telegraphing through to the tile and grout. Third-party certified to contain 100% post-industrial/pre-consumer fibers, UltraLayer helps cushion the floor for more comfortable walking and absorbs impact and airborne sound for improved acoustics. It’s odorless and hypo-allergenic, mold resistant, and has an insulating R-value that will contribute to keeping floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. And it is approved for use in installations incorporating electric radiant floor heat. www.mpglobalproducts.com
