Vitrex Premier Wood & Laminate Underlay Boards 5mm 9.76mÂ² Green
Good underlay for Laminate
Bought this underlay based on thickness and cost. The boards were very easy to lay in the brickwork pattern we used under our laminate flooring. Good sound absorption and floor feels warm.

Easy to use
This is nicer to use than similar fibreboard products but be careful when laying, the boards are not dimensionally accurate and vary by up to 3mm in length or width (sometimes both!) and are not all 'square'. They're easily trimmed, but it is annoying if you like to keep things lined up neatly.
Also check every box for quantity.
Out of five boxes, two had only 18 boards.
Returning to the store for replacements, the manager checked another two boxes, one had 19, the next had 20! Clearly factory quality control is defective.

Good quality stuff
It's a few quid more than the fibre boards but well worth it as its waterproof!! Being a landlord I've experienced tenants spilling water and ruining the laminate floor and th fibre boards will absorb every drop of water causing them to be replaced as well, these foam boards won't do that.
Another benefit is these aren't that soft like the gold foam rolls which allow the laminate to bounce as you walk which isn't the point in installating a solid floor.
