When it comes to installing flooring, many homeowners are faced with the decision of whether to invest in underlayment. With various options available, it's essential to make a choice to ensure the longevity and performance of your flooring. In this blog post, we'll shed light on the pitfalls of opting for foam underlayment and why Dura Undercushions stands out as a superior alternative.

The Foam Underlayment Trap:

Foam underlayment has long been a popular choice due to its affordability and ease of installation. However, the initial cost savings may come at a significant long-term expense. Foam underlayment may provide a temporary solution, but it lacks the durability and support needed to maintain the integrity of your flooring over time.

1. Temporary Comfort: Foam underlayment may offer a soft and comfortable surface. However, this comfort often decreases quickly, leaving homeowners with a sinking feeling – both metaphorically and literally. The lack of durability in foam can result in compression over time, leading to uneven floors and potential damage to the flooring surface.
2. Limited Sound Insulation: Foam underlayment may claim to offer sound insulation, but its acoustical performance declines overtime.
3. Mold and mildew growth: One of the critical functions of underlayment is to provide a barrier against mold and mildew. Foam underlayment falls short in this regard, exposing your flooring to mold and mildew growth, making your investment ineffective.
