All rubber and cork sound underlayment material that we offer is sound tested with results acceptable to national standards.

We've highlighted a few of our most popular options to help you get started.

Rubber Underlayment

The most common type of underlayment used is rubber underlayment. Versatile and offering excellent sound dampening properties, rubber can be installed in areas where moisture may be an issue. Rubber is mold and mildew resistant, making it a great choice for many applications.

Rubber underlayment can be loose laid or installed with glue, staples, or tape.

Rubber floor underlayment offers the following benefits:

  • Mold and mildew resistant - rubber can be used in environments where moisture is an issue
  • Sound dampening for a quieter environment
  • Permanently resilient - rubber will not get brittle with time
  • Environmentally friendly - many options are made of recycled rubber, and can be recycled again in the future

Rubber floor underlayment is most often paired with the following flooring types:

  • Ceramic tile
  • Laminate flooring
  • Hardwood
  • Engineered wood

We offer rubber floor underlayment in a variety of thicknesses and designs to suit your project.

The Rubber Floor Underlayment 4mm 4x50-foot Roll is an excellent choice for athletic flooring. This underlayment provides cushion from hard surfaces, like concrete, and does not break down or compact over time. You can dry lay this underlayment for a simple installation.

Our SilentTread Rubber Sound Underlayment 1/2-Inch x 25 Foot Roll offers excellent sound reduction properties. This product has three times the sound dampening weight of competitors' products, and is suitable for both commercial and residential flooring. This underlayment is made from recycled tires, and can help toward LEED Green Building Council Certification. The underlayment is mold and mildew resistant, and will not be crushed or degraded.

If you're working in an area where moisture may be an issue, then consider the SilentTread XL with Vapor Barrier Rubber Underlayment. This product offers the same exceptional noise reduction as other SilentTread rubber underlayments, but it also includes a vapor barrier. This rubber subfloor has a laminated polypropylene film that prevents flooring damage due to vapor transmission through a concrete subfloor. It's an excellent way to help protect the flooring that you are investing in.

Cork Underlayment

Cork underlayment is a popular choice for both commercial and residential buildings where dampening sound is a priority. Cork provides a number of benefits. It dramatically dampens sound for a more pleasant environment. Cork also has a ''spring back'' property that allows the cork to return to its original shape, even after being compressed. Additionally, cork is filled with air, making it a great thermal insulator.

Cork underlayment offers the following benefits:

  • Excellent sound reduction, both in-room and below-room
  • Thermal insulation properties keep flooring warm underfoot
  • Durable material won't compress over time
  • Mildew, mold, and moisture resistant for a healthier living environment
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Environmentally renewable resource

Cork is most often paired with the following flooring types:

  • Ceramic tile
  • Vinyl tile
  • Rubber tile
  • Laminate flooring
  • Hardwood flooring
  • Carpet

Our cork underlayments are available in sheets for easy handling and simplified installation.

The AcoustiCork PR60 4-6mm Wave Textured PR60 offers top-quality high performance sound control. This underlayment is suitable for engineered wood or laminate flooring in multi-family applications, and the unique wave texture minimizes direct comfort with the subfloor. This innovative design results in a 25-point improvement in impact noise transmission. This is the highest documented performance for an underlayment less than 1/4 inch thick x 4 feet wide.

For a thicker underlayment, consider our 12mm Cork Underlayment, available in a 2x3 foot sheet for easy handling and installation.

Rubber Cork Underlayment

Rubber cork underlayment combines the properties of both rubber and cork underlayment. This underlayment is most frequently favored due to its crack suppression properties; it can help to prevent cracks in your flooring tile as a building settles over time. It also offers excellent thermal insulation, making for a more comfortable floor.

Rubber cork underlayment offers the following benefits:

  • Aids in crack suppression as buildings settle over time
  • Thermal insulation properties keep flooring warm underfoot
  • Sound dampening properties make for a quieter environment
  • Expands and contracts with your flooring
  • Mold and mildew resistant for a healthier environment

Rubber cork underlayment is most often paired with the following flooring types:

  • Ceramic tile
  • Hardwood floors
  • Laminate floors
