Every floor consists of a few layers – a top layer, a second one, a sub floor and joists. The second layer is called an underlayment. The underlayment is a very thin segment of the floor, which is used to rest the top flooring on. The underlayment provides the flooring with a nice and smooth surface, which is necessary in order to place the finish floor properly.

There are several materials that the underlayment can be made of, such as:
- Hard wood
- Wafer board
- Orient-strand board

Depending on the situation, people choose different types of floor underlayment and none of them can really be considered the best. However, the most popular options are plywood and cement board. Foam and cork, used to install floor underlayment, are referred to as soft underlayment. They are not attached, like the other panels, but are left floating. The most important factor when deciding on the right material of the underlayment, is the type of top flooring that is going to be installed. The most adequate option when installing a laminate or a hard wood floor, is to use a plywood underlayment. For ceramic tile flooring, it’s best to have a cement board second layer.
