    Anyone else used 1Step underflooring in basements? I have to say I’m very impressed at first use, our client was a little hesitant at the cost first but we won him over showing him the added benefits of the material in his new basement project.

    That looks like a good product. We have never tried it. The finished product looks great

    Interesting product,i haven’t had first hand use of it. I’ll have to read up on it and since you are within a couple hour drive, I should be able to get a hold of the 1 step should I need .

    It does look great; this might sound weird, but could you describe both how it sounds and feels when you walk on it?

    Delta-FL or Platten are the only procudts I have used.

    Platten is a fraction of the cost of any other underlayment flooring product out there.

    Surprisingly quiet and soft … so much so that our client remarked on the product when he stepped in from the garage stairs … “it goes down a little when I stand on it” he said … I replied … good, that’s what it’s meant to do.

    Our client also has a pool table to install down in the basement but I researched that too and found it’s pool table safe.

    Looks like a nice product. Did you get it from a distributor? I haven’t seen it around, but then I don’t work a lot with flooring distributors.

    Looks a lot nicer than the stuff I just put down. Are all the lengths the same. I can’t tell.

    Rona was our guys but now they are part of Lowes.

    It’s the underlay material we are talking about.

    I used Platon as well. Can give off a clanky sound.

    I saw the one Journeyman shows at HD just two days ago in passing. It is softer and less hard plastic than the Platon product. I just touched it briefly, but it felt like a super compressed foam like material if that makes sense.

    I’ve never used it…but it looks a bit like Schluter Ditra. I’ve used that for tile underlayment a couple of times.

    Looks like a good product but at the time I did my basement I had two choices Delta-FL or Dri-Core. I do get some click but only at a couple of the edges/ends. None what soever in the center of my floor. (700 sq ft) Been down for about 8 years now and never an issue with the laminate I put down.

    I have seen the DMX-1 product at my local HD.

    Looks like a good product, it’s saying it is a dense foam underlying, I assume it would not absorb any moisture, I always like these products with the air flow little egg shapes, great for letting the air and concrete breath.

    Nice job on the basement floor by the way, I like the color,

    The HO picked the laminate out, in fact they bought it at a warehouse place I recommened. It was called Earl Grey (like the tea)

    Together with 12mm laminate flooring altogether raises the floor 1 inch. Transition strips more than likely adds another 1/4 at doorways etc.

    One of the best upgrades to any basement. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to finish their basement.
