Luxury vinyl flooring in a Franken, WI home

Does luxury vinyl flooring have built-in underlayment?

Luxury vinyl flooring comes with extensive benefits attached to it, stunning visuals, outstanding durability, and an excellent lifespan. Sometimes the flooring comes with an attached underlayment while others do not, and we will talk a little more about that in today?s post.

Underlying facts on LVP

The reason that not all luxury vinyl with an underlayment is quite simply that not all luxury vinyl needs it. There are some considerations to keep in mind when determining your need for an underlayment.

For instance, are you installing over a subfloor or existing floor covering? If you are installing over another flooring, it may already have an underpadding that provides plenty of protection and comfort.

However, if you require protection against moisture, a reduction of sound, or added comfort underfoot, an underlayment is a great idea. And many luxury vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring products already have that attached.

The benefits of an attached underlayment include a faster installation and a warranty that covers both products simultaneously. You'll get all the comfort and benefits from your luxury vinyl as a whole for results that can last more than 20 years with proper care and maintenance.
