Step 1: Fix, clean and prepare your subfloor
Repair any damages, level the surface and clean your sub-floor. Follow our guidelines to prepare it properly. Concrete or wood sub-floor must be dry and tested for moisture, flat, structurally sound, and free of protrusions and contaminants. Sweep sub-floors clean of debris to avoid punctures and tears
Step 2: Installing Over Concrete?
If installing over concrete, you must install a vapor barrier film, such as Visqueen.
Step 3: Install Cross-Grain
After laying a film (if needed), prepare to install the cork underlayment opposite of the flooring (cross-grain)
Step 4: Unroll and Cut
Unroll the underlayment and cut to the length of the room.
Step 5: Install the Next Roll
The next row will lay right beside the first.
