    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stiff Plastic, hard and bumpy under carpeting! We installed this in our basement last fall under a Beaulieu scroll carpet. Wish we'd used a felt cushion underlay instead of this but since it was so expensive we thought it would be better. This couldn't be further from the truth. When we unrolled it it stayed curled and was hard to stay flattened. It is a cheap feeling piece of plastic with thin foam on it. The plastic makes the floors feel harder and not at all soft OR comfortable even though we spent a lot on a really good carpet. Next time we would get something soft that's easier to install, not made of rigid plastic and bumps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only good if you are installing carpet Purchased DMX subfloor (9 rolls) as I wanted to install LVP (luxury vinyl plank) in my basement. Basement slab is perfectly level. I purchased the LVP from a local flooring company, the product is high quality and cost me $4k. Unfortunately after the installation I noticed that almost every butt joint would click and come apart. I have installed a lot of flooring, myself and my crew installed the flooring correctly. The underlayment has too much play for a drop and lock LVP. I would also not recommend a floating engineered hardwood as there is too much risk. If your going to install carpet you would be fine with this product, otherwise be warned. Spend the extra $1/ft2 and buy an actual subfloor or install 3/4" OSB over top of foundation drainage board, same result but more economical. I highly regret installing this product, especially after all of the effort and money it took to finish my basement. Unfortunately if you remove LVP after installation the joints get damaged as the product is thin. So essentially I am stuck with butt joints that don't lock together and click because I don't want to waste another $2k-$4k damaging the LVP to pull it up. I also should note this is the very first review I have ever written, I felt compelled to warn people of my mistake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sub floor Very easy to set up and works amazingly, it is much better then having concrete in the basement

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from check before buy My contractor bought this product and put into my basement; yes it was very easy to install and also installing the laminate was easy; however, after the installation finished when I walk on the floor I felt I am floating on the floor and the laminate pieces are moving ; it does not feel solid and uniform floor, definitely this would not be my choice if I had been warned.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not support furniture loads with vinyl planks We used it on 2000sqft of our basement and covered it with vinyl planking. Regular furniture loads dent the vinyl planking and pull apart the seams of the planking. We now have to pull up the planking and probably put down some OSB when it clearly states that it is not required.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WE ARE VERY HAPPY The product is GREAT!!!!!!!! Very easy to install. The floors are extremely comfortable. I would recommend this product to anyone we used this and than laid vinyl planks on top of DMX Airflow

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! Amazing product! We bought the product a few weeks ago to install in our basement with laminate floors on top. We were looking for a underlayment that would provide a moisture barrier, would keep the floors warm, would be easy to install and be affordable at the same time. This product does it all! Not only do I not have to worry about mold in my basement, as we are installing the DMX, we immediately felt a difference in the warmth of the floor. The installation went very easy. Simply unroll the rolls, tape the joints, and install the laminate right on top of it. Definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovative product at a great price point! I completed laying my DMX Airflow underlayment, and the process was simple and easy! We laid it over approximately 650 sq ft of concrete slab and noticed right away the cushioning we got and the difference in temperature (thermal break) between the concrete floor and the covered floor. The next day we had carpet installed on top of the DMX Airflow and it doesn't feel at all that there is a concrete floor underneath. The feeling is equivalent to having OSB or plywood with a carpet underpad, but at a fraction of the cost of laying a subfloor. Our carpet installer was impressed with the material also and took some samples to show future customers. This install was completed in December 2016 and have had no issues since the install. Another bonus is, we noticed a small reduction in our electricity bill since we have not run the heating as much in the basement due to the thermal break the DMX Airflow provides!

    Can this product be used with roll out vinyl or fiberglass vinyl sheeting?

    Asked by: SMK123
    There is a lot of information on uses and installation of DMX online - I would start with the manufacturer's website.  From my experience, I would think that a subfloor would be required

    Hi. I'm in the process of getting my basement finished by a contractor and planning to use carpet for flooring. Is this suitable for use as the carpet underpad? Is it ok if this is installed directly onto the concrete floor with carpet installed on top?

    Asked by: Vincent
    Hello Vincent: We do not recommend installing additional carpet pad on-top of DMX Airflow. Traditional carpet padding is typically not waterproof. Any spills on top of your carpet would get absorbed by the traditional padding which may lead to mold or mildew growth. In addition, the added padding could lead to too much vertical deflection in high traffic areas which may lead to wrinkling in your carpet. Customer Care DMX

    Hi, I have already purchased a rigid waterproof plank flooring (called a super heavy duty LVT) for my basement, and was wondering if this would be a good product for underneath? I'm trying to find something to allow airflow, but isn't super thick.

    Asked by: beburr
    The dmx subfloor I installed in my basement is amazing quality, you won't find better, does allow air flow and isn't that thick, I recommend this product.

    I am considering using this product for my basement. I have a mini home gym. Will it support a treadmill at 300 pound while being jogged on?

    Asked by: TV Man
    Hello TV Man: DMX Airflow has a compressive strength of 8,000 pounds per square foot or 55 pounds per square inch. You will need to find the weight of the treadmill or any other heavy gym equipment that may be placed on DMX Airflow and then find the area of the parts that will be in contact with the flooring that you use (square inches work best for this) and then divide the weight of the item by the area (in square inches). Further you will want to contact the manufacture of the flooring you choose to see if they recommend installing gym equipment on their flooring. Customer Care DMX
