I would be laying this on a new (less than 2 weeks old) concrete slab. Where I live is cold, I'd like to put insulated DriCore on top for some r-value...is that an option?

Asked by: HarbourDog
It could take more than a month for cement to cure so me I would wait. I will do one or the other but not the two together depending on your situation but I do have one portion of the house with dry core and one other with the DMX step2 And I do not see a big difference during winter it was much much much easier to install the flooring on the dmx Since you just unroll it and put the floor on . Unless you are putting flooring that require staples don’t put drycore . I assume your floor should dead flat so dmx will easily go on without trouble.

The Customer Service replies for this product say that this should only be used with flooring that is 8mm or greater in thickness, however, the dmx1step website says it is: "The best choice for Vinyl Plank Flooring (>5mm)." I have 5mm LVP. Suitable?

Asked by: s988
Hello s988: We recommend a minimum thickness of 8mm when laminate is being installed. A minimum thickness of 5mm is recommended when installing vinyl plank flooring. Customer Care DMX

I will be installing Luxury Vinyl Plank (7mm thickness) in my basement. Basement floor is concrete, below grade. I will assume DMX LVT is the product that I should use amongst DMX 1-step 2.0, DMX Airflow and DMX LVT. Correct?

Asked by: Andy S
Hello Andy: DMX 1-Step 2.0 Underlayment has been designed for laminate, engineered hardwood and vinyl plank flooring (≥5mm). DMX 1-Step 2.0 has a higher dimple density ensuring a more rigid substrate, suitable for vinyl plank flooring, as well as a higher compressive strength (12,000 lbs/sq.ft). DMX Airflow has been primarily designed for laminate, engineered hardwood and carpet, as well as WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) vinyl (≥5mm). DMX Airflow has foam on both sides of the dimpled membrane, as well as a layer of aluminum foil, providing a more warm and comfortable floor. Customer Care DMX

What is the difference between DMX 1-Step 2.0 and the DMX Airflow? I am looking to install a subfloor in a basement. I see the price difference, but cant fully tell what the reason is for the higher price of the AIRFLOW.

Asked by: Andy S
Hello Andy: DMX 1-Step 2.0 Underlayment is a dimpled membrane with foam (0.5mm) on one side of the dimpled membrane. Laminate, engineered hardwood and vinyl plank flooring (≥5mm) can be installed directly on top of DMX 1-Step 2.0. Our new design has a higher dimple density, which provides a more rigid substrate and a higher compressive strength (>10,000 lbs/sq.ft). DMX Airflow is an underlayment with foam on both sides of the dimpled membranes, providing a more comfortable and warm floor. In addition, DMX Airlfow has aluminum foam on top of the foam, which will keep your floors warmer. DMX Airflow has been primarily designed for laminate, engineered hardwood and carpet, as well as WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) vinyl flooring (≥5mm). Both underlayments provide an air gap for moisture to evaporate. Customer Care DMX

I’m building my basement. Do I need to build walls first and then lay this material and cut around the walls or can you lay this first and then build walls on top of this and drill anchors through material and into concrete? 

Asked by: Danny
Hello Danny: Both options are possible. Non load bearing walls can be installed directly on top of DMX 1-Step 2.0. When installing non-load bearing walls on top of our underlayment, we recommend, dipping the screws/anchors in a polyurethane sealing prior to anchoring the studs down. The sealant will help in maintaining the vapour barrier. If choosing to frame and frame and finish the walls first, we recommend leaving 1/4 inch gap away from the wall when installing our underlayment. This will allow for air circulation so that moisture can evaporate. Customer Care DMX

Can this product be installed under plywood/OSB and solid hardwood flooring?

Asked by: Dave74
Hello Dave: DMX 1-Step 2.0 has been designed to go directly under laminate, engineered hardwood and vinyl plank flooring (5mm or greater). However, if desired, plywood or OSB can be installed on top of our underlayment. Customer Care DMX

Here's a dumb question-- I'm confused by the description-- does the roll contain 100 linear feet, or 100 square feet? Thank you!

Asked by: JenBean
100 square feet - If I remember correctly the roll is 42 inches wide and 29 feet long. I've used this product a number of times at various projects. Great for basements and you can put laminate floor directly on top without adding additional plywood or osb. Laminate floor should be at least 12mm thick.
