Sound Deadening Floor Underlayments

Example of a rolled Sound Deadening Flooring UnderlaymentIn order to reduce noise (unwanted sound) created from impacts to a hard floor covering, such as sound created from walking or dropping objects on your floor, I recommend that you use sound deadening floor underlayments. These are also known as acoustical underlayments (or sound abatement) and are available in several different variations. Often the choice of the right floor underlayment depends on the type of floor covering the sound underlayment is being installed with. Cork, foam and felt are common materials used to make sound reducing flooring underlayments, though there are several other engineered materials that are also used.

Some floor coverings, such as laminate, have acoustical underlayments attached directly to the backside of their panels or planks. This helps to eliminate or greatly reduce laminate’s hollow as well as to reduce the transfer of sound to floors below. In addition, when an acoustical underlayment is pre-attached to the floor covering, it can reduce the installation time.

Sound deadening floor underlayments are especially important in condos and apartment buildings where noise control is a must. To find more information about sound deadening floor underlayments and other sound deadening materials, visit FindAnyFloor’s section on Sound Transmissions. Here you will find information about Impact Insulation Class (IIC), Sound Transmission Class (STC), Noise Reduction Coefficient, and other sound deadening and underlayment terms that you may hae never heard of before.

Thanks for the info! I have always wondered why my folks house was so loud. It made me dislike hardwood flooring. I like carpet but now Im debating on what to do... go with carpet because I like it quiet or go with hardwood or even laminate/vinyl and use an underlayment to prevent the noise. I think both are going to work well but which is better? Any suggestions?

I used a foam underlayment and my new hardwood floors don't squeak and they aren't loud to walk on either. I like foam as an underlyment the best.

I was nervous about installing laminate flooring because of the clicking sound laminate floors can make which is so annoying. But the store I went to highly recommended a product called the Floor Muffler and it is great! I love my laminate floor and I'm really glad I spent the extra money on making sure they didn't click.
