Laminate flooring, we're talking about a medium density, fiber or high-density fiber laminate. Traditionally this came out. It looked like a picture of three different pieces of wood. It's developed a lot over the years now we've got something that looks like wide plank board flooring. Now, this is a tore, Lee's flooring product as a fabulous quality. The joints in this click lock together and really tight. You won't see gaping over time. There's a lot of products on the market. A lot of different price ranges anywhere from a dollar square foot up to five or six, so you get what you pay for.
So if you have a 10-year project and you're just looking to make something clean, so you can sell your house by all means. You know go to the cheaper end, but if you're doing a new build like we are we're expecting this floor to last a long time. This isn't going to be a 30 to the 40-year flood, we're also installing a bar on top of it. So we can't cut any corners with the quality so since we're not cutting corners of the quality, we're also using a high-quality under pad. This is a very thick piece of rubber. It also has a vapor barrier on it.
It's always that vapor barrier on and really flooring this product here is good for basement floors and residential use. If you're bruit, laminate flooring and you're in a situation where you're like in a condo or an apartment, you have to get a different flooring that kills the sound there's a sound transmission rating on that under pad it's a little more expensive. But, generally speaking, if you go to a wholesaler, you can get this kind of product for under 20 cents a square foot. It's not a big expense, so, by all means, get the good one.
If you go to the building store, you're - probably going to pay three to four times as much, but don't ever cheap out, okay, so the bottom of the pad is the gold side has an adhesive strip so that when you do the next joint, you can tape A pad on to this little bit of leftover foil so always install the pad in the right direction so that you can add the next layer. Basically, we just roll it out and cut it to fill the space. Now this room is a little dusty, so we're going to get some footprints.
