  • What is the best underlay for laminate flooring or Wood Floor?

    Whether you're fitting carpet or laminate, underlay is crucial to getting the best experience out of your new flooring. It's especially important if your sub-floor is made of concrete as the underlay helps to prevent moisture and damp from impacting your flooring and ensures it lasts longer.

Stairs are high traffic areas In most homes, the stairs - along with hallways - are an area that sees the most traffic.
