UNDERLAYS

Preparation is the key to achieving the perfect results. Before installing your new Pergo wood parquet floor, be sure to select the right underlay. Underlays add not only walking comfort, but also functionality. And a great floor requires an underlay that will retain its properties over time. Underlays of lesser quality may eventually give way, causing damage to the floor joints.
