Bitumen paper can really be of use when laying hardwood floors, linoleum or vinyl flooring.
Hardwood floors. Bitumen paper can help reduce noise when it comes to wood flooring. To achieve this, you need to put the paper between the underlay you’re using and the wooden planks.
Vinyl flooring and linoleum. Put the bitumen paper between the subfloor and vinyl planks or linoleum flooring. The paper will minimise squeaking.
