Moisture barrier? And use it under plywood below cabinets?
We are putting down floating laminate for our flooring throughout the house. (I know laminate is not the best choice, but at this point it is for our budget.)
The laminate manufacturer "recommends" a 6mm moisture barrier under their planks. They sell it and it's plastic. I always wanted cork underlayment (thicker version for its warmth, and sound proof quality), but do not want to void our warranty. The first question is will a 6mm cork underlayment serve the same purposes as a 6mm plastic moisture barrier does?
Now, we are going to put down plywood below our cabinets to make up for the thickness of the flooring that we will lay down later. Will we need moisture barrier under the plywood as well?
