A vapour barrier is a 0.2mm clear plastic reinforced sheet designed to be used on concrete sub-floors under underlays where there is no built-in vapour barrier. Overlap the edges and if necessary tape them together to ensure that no moisture can get through. You should make sure wherever a vapour barrier is used under the floor that the edges go up the wall to be hidden behind the skirting boards once they are fitted.
A polyethylene vapour barrier for use on concrete sub-floors with any underlay that does not have a built-in vapour barrier, ideal for all laminate floors and Basix engineered floors!
Spread the sheet out across the room making sure the edges overlap, put the underlay on top and then install your new floor.
