As Commercial Flooring and Interior Concepts began a commercial flooring project in an assisted living facility in the Princeton NJ area we found that the building was built with a wooden sub-flooring. The existing flooring was carpeting and we were to install a resilient plank and tile flooring.
The existing sub-flooring is not in good enough shape to just go over it.Choices for New Underlayment
One choice for an underlayment was luan plywood. Luan is a 1/4″ wood product. We have used it in the past. When I researched other choices, I found Florcore Extreme. This solid core product is engineered to provide a better product than luan. The product is impact and dent resistant. It has a nailing grid stenciled on the product to ensure complete coverage. It comes in a variety of sizes.
