Gathering your supplies and tools needed for your installation will help you get the job done faster and smoother! Here are the basics needed for the Provent 3-in-1 underlayment:
- Provent 3-in-1 Underlayment
- Utility knife
- Broom or ShopVac
Step 1: Fix, clean and prepare your subfloor
Repair any damages, level the surface and clean your subfloor. Follow our guidelines to prepare it properly.
Step 2: Start
Once your subfloor is free from any dirt. dust and debris, it is time to get unrolling. Place the underlayment with the red Kronoswiss logo side facing up and the film overlap towards the open room.
Step 3: Leave a Small Gap
With temperature changes, the underlayment will contract and expand. Leave a small gap, around 2-3mm betwen the underlayment and wall.
Step 4: Leave a Small Gap
Unroll and cut the underlayment section to fit the length of the wall. Use a utility knife or sharp scissors
Step 5: Add Flooring
After one row of underlayment, you can begin to install your flooring. Follow the manufacturers instructions to begin the project. Continue until you are about a foot away from the edge of the underlayment.
Step 6: Unroll the Second Row
It’s time to add the second roll of underlayment. Begin to unroll the underlayment over the film from the first row. The second row’s film will be towards the open room.
Step 7: Line Up Edges
Butt the seams together making sure to not overlap the underlayment. This will create a tight seal.
Step 8: Tape the Rows Together
Tape the rows together down the seam. Adhering the underlayment together keeps the rows from sliding or moving.
Step 9: Continue with Flooring
Repeat the steps to continue installing your flooring and then underlayment. Work in small sections.
