Build houses that feel like home
The most important thing for any new homeowner is comfort. As a contractor, you’re not just tasked with putting up four walls and a roof. Your biggest task is to make sure that the house, condo or apartment you’re building feels just like home for your buyers. The premium acoustic performance and protection of FloorMuffler® underlayment helps you deliver that comfort. Underlayment is a critical piece of any flooring assembly, but not just any product will do. FloorMuffler is specifically designed for excellent acoustic performance, providing a moisture barrier and protecting the integrity of your flooring systems. You can trust FloorMuffler to provide the quality that customers expect from your homes, and the comfort they want in theirs.
CreatE Comfort Through Acoustics
Installing low-quality underlayments may help your flooring assemblies acoustically and protect against moisture to some degree. However, too many underlayment options provide minimal performance in these areas. This can lead to problems as soon as a homeowner moves in, causing issues they’ll be dealing with for years.
Low-quality underlayments are typically going to deliver a weak acoustic performance. This might not seem like a big deal, but future homeowners and building residents will absolutely be able to hear the difference – and it’s endlessly frustrating. The smallest sounds end up carrying and echoing across the house. Footsteps from upstairs neighbors sound like cannonballs, and the TV down the hall sounds like a movie theater.
A premium quality underlayment like FloorMuffler provides the best acoustic performance for through-the-floor and reflective noise, helping to deaden much of the noise and create a comfortable living space for your residents.
Protect Flooring From Damage
FloorMuffler high-performance underlayments also improve the life span of your flooring, providing a much greater degree of protection than other underlayments made from lower-quality material.
Moisture and subfloor irregularities both pose a big threat to flooring systems over time. Moisture can cause warping, and subfloor irregularities can cause damage to the locking systems or transfer minor subfloor imperfections to the flooring surface. If this happens, the flooring will eventually have to be ripped and replaced all over again. You might think you don’t have to worry about that, but you want your customers to know they’re getting quality and reliability in every nook and cranny of their new home.
FloorMuffler’s excellent moisture protection ratings help prevent that, preserving the entire flooring assembly for years to come. Whether you’re building a new condo complex or renovating a home, your customers can trust they’re getting maximum life span and protection out of their flooring.
Deliver Higher Stability and Comfort
Underlayments help support the floor covering and provide the stability needed to maintain a durable flooring installation. Some premium underlayments smooth subfloor imperfections, providing a clean and flat surface below the floor covering. This layer of increased stability could help your customer avoid costly repairs down the road.
Underlayments also offer compression resistance that helps bolster a floor’s performance and comfort. By dispersing the impact of steps, you give your customers greater comfort when standing and walking.
Premium underlayments for commercial applications offer insulative properties that can help keep floor coverings warm. For example, the FloorMuffler® encore underlayment carries an R-value of 4.1 per inch, one of the highest in the market. Our flagship innovation, the original FloorMuffler®, delivers R-values of 4.3 per inch. Additionally, FloorMuffler products are compatible with radiant floor heating systems.
Keep Projects on Schedule
Underlayments with self-sealing technology like UltraSeal offer a quick, frictionless installation process. The built-in lip-and-tape design eliminates the need for seam tape. Simply remove the strip to expose the adhesive and affix the next sheet. FloorMuffler underlayments are lightweight and easy to lay down on the subfloor. FloorMuffler also offers fan-fold options like Floormat™ XPS that can simply be unfolded when installing. As a result, you can keep projects moving forward faster.
Protect The Indoor Air Quality
FloorMuffler products also help contribute to a healthier indoor environment.
California has adopted strict laws (CA 01350) for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. These harmful substances can create health issues like eye and respiratory irritation, nausea and nerve damage. Plus, some are known carcinogens, so other areas may soon enact similar regulations.
FloorMuffler products have undergone third-party testing to ensure their VOC emission levels follow the industry’s most stringent guidelines. All of our products meet or exceed the standards CA 01350 establishes.
