Quality underfoot

Thoroughly tested and customer-approved, all Tolko underlayment is quality-assured by a third-party grading agency. Precision-sanded and fully filled for a uniform panel surface,

Tolko’s ink-jetted fastener guide facilitates speed and precision during installation.

Our underlayment is manufactured from logs with diameters averaging 25cm (10") from managed, sustainable forests. This mean there’s no added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) so we can successfully meet the green building standards of our industry.
