When installing SoundBuffer underneath a floating floor, please use a high quality duct tape at the seams. If you are using the double-glue or nail-down installation method, that is not required.
SoundBuffer will help reduce minor subfloor imperfections, however it is not a substitute for proper subfloor preparation. Please ensure your subfloor is within tolerances of your flooring manufacturer prior to installing SoundBuffer.
