Padding, or underlayment, is essential when installing this type of flooring. Padding provides added stability, and it protects the subfloor as well as the flooring. What’s more, the surface of the floor is smoother when there is padding between the sheet and the subfloor. With padding, footsteps do not produce a hollow sound that is sometimes associated with this type of material. Overall, acoustics as well as insulation is improved. Some brands come with attached padding.
