Innovative Underlayment Solutions From Uzin

At Area Floors, we go beyond the surface in many ways. We know that what goes underneath is just as important as the flooring itself.  Quality surface preparation can make or break an installation. Did you know that we also offer innovative underlayment solutions?

Last week, we were pleased to host a product demonstration by Mike Avery and Jonas DeWebber from Uzin, sponsored by T&A Supply. They demonstrated just a few of the great installation products Uzin has to offer. We got a first hand look at some of these products in action at the Installer Night Event at Area Floors Clackamas.
