Jodi Marks: You know, I really like laminate flooring, it’s very easy to install, it’s a great DIY project, and you get instant results. But I will tell you this, the number one complaint about an engineered floor is the clickity-clack hollow sound it makes when you’re walking across the floor. But, Shea, you’ve got a really neat little product here that we can talk about.
Shea Pettaway: Yes, I do. It’s called the floor muffler.
Jodi Marks: That’s the perfect name.
Shea Pettaway: Can you imagine having a car without a muffler?
Jodi Marks: No.
Shea Pettaway: A lot of noise. So what this does, it reduces sound on the floor. And it’s light, strong, and flexible at the same time.
Jodi Marks: And it’s very easy to install, you just put it down, and then you put your flooring on top of it. The nice thing, too, is it creates a vapor barrier, so it’s perfect for basement applications. But it also is mold and mildew resistant.
Shea Pettaway: And let me tell you another good thing about it. It’s a self-tape. So you don’t have to worry about putting any tape on it. It’s already on there.
Jodi Marks: So this makes a perfect DIY project that much better. Thank you.
