    Hi I plan to install laminate flooring on the first floor of my house. I have removed all carpets and previous underlay and cleaned the floorboards beneath. Due to it being the first floor I’d like a good noise reducing underlay. I am currently torn between 3 options:
    - Vitrex premier 5mm (screw fix) £22.00 per 9.76 m2.
    - TimberTech 2 3mm (flooring warehouse direct) £35.26 per 10m2
    - Duralay Timbermate 3.6mm (amazon) £46.93 per 10m2.

    Can anyone say which might be best? Has anyone had experience with these? Other brand suggestions welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I read a comment on a different forum stating that foil backed underlays might be bad for the floorboards, not letting them breath. Is there any truth to this?
