MoistureBlock has not been tested for use in crawl spaces.
MoistureBlock is an effective vapor barrier approved for use under fully installed floor coverings.
MoistureBlock should be installed just prior to installing your floor covering.

In theory, QuietWalk Plus would help to reduce the noise transfer in this application. However, we have not tested this particular application and cannot attest to the suitability. QuietWalk Plus is approved for use installed under laminate and wood flooring.
QuietWalk Plus has only been tested and approved for use installed under laminate and wood flooring. In theory this would help to reduce noise transfer, but we cannot say for certain.
The difference between QuietWalk and QuietWalk Plus is the attached film. QuietWalk Plus has a specialized film designed to accept nails and adhesives so it works with floating, nail-down, and glue-down installation methods of laminate and wood floors. QuietWalk is approved for floating wood and laminate only.
