Thank you for giving me the opportunity to say what a great product DMX 1- step is.
I had to put down an underlayment in 430 square feet for a basement floor. It was so easy and quick to put down that even my 9year old layed out a row. This product was so versatile and easy to lay down that we had the entire floor done in 1 hour!
It was so easy butting the edges together and then taping with Tuck tape which my 6 year old help do. Let me tell you there is no description in the world seeing your kids faces as they feel they helped put something together.
In the past for a similar size basement I used dri-core and it literally took me 12 hours to put it down. For DMX 1-Step™ no special tools were needed only scissors and an exacto-knife and in 1 hour, I started to put the laminate floor on top.
I can’t stress how great this product is, i’ve already recommended it to friends for their basement projects. If i ever have to finish a basement again you can be sure I will use DMX 1-Step™ first.
Thanks for making the project a successful one and a time saver

I wanted to write you this note to let you know that I recently renovated my basement and decided on 1-Step™ as our choice for a subfloor. We choose to use 12mm laminate flooring and had an easy time working with your product.
To sum up our experience, I can say that it was easy to install, cut and manipulate around corners and walls. Further, adding to a piece proved simple with the 1-Step™ tape and using the dimples to cut a piece to fit another. The product is light weight and provided a great base to show off our laminate floor. It is quiet, strong and looks great!
Thanks again for the recommenation and be sure to know that my wife and I will recommend and praise 1-Step™ to all our friends and family.
Kind Regards, DG
DMX 1-Step™ has made my floor much warmer, and that is with only the 1-Step™ on the concrete. It was very easy to lay and I used the videos for more information. The only issue I had was that I needed more tape as I have a few poles in my basement.

I got my dmx and it seems like its going to work perfect, I laid it down and am finishing my basement as we speak. I have definitely promoted your product here in New York, most people have never heard of it. I am very satisfied.
The whole basment is dmx, we had a ton of rain a few weeks ago and some wet spots appeared on concrete but the dmx worked awesome and nothing got through.
Now we are almost done. The [flooring] is being installed next week. The subfloor is over the dmx and the floor never felt warmer. You can walk on your barefeet now and not feel cold…. even though the concrete slab is underneath and its been negative temperature outside.

DMX 1-Step™ Underlayment, By: S. Shabaz
“DMX 1-Step™ is an excellent underlayment!
We wanted to add useable living space to our existing home by renovating the basement. We were concerned about moisture getting in as well as the comfort and warmth of a laminate in the basement.
1-Step™ has made the floors and room warm and cozy, and is super comfortable to walk on! Our sons friend actually said “this floor is so comfortable, I could walk on it all day”… We also found 1-Step™ to be considerably less expensive than most other underlayments, (which helped keep us within budget), and the installation process was quick and easy!
Definitely a top recommendation! :)”
DMX 1-Step™ = a great choice, Jeff
“My wife and I hired a general contractor to finish our unfinshed basement in our newly built home. In order to save money I decided that I would handle the subfloor and floor installation in order to save labour costs and we would leave all the rest (framing, electrical, plumbing, drywall etc) to the pros. We spent a few weeks going back and forth between DriCore and DMX 1-Step™ for our subfloor. After many trips to Home Depot and lots of online research we chose to go with DMX 1-Step™, and I am so glad we did. Not only is this product the best cost/sq foot in subflooring it is by far the easiest to install! Aside from the easy installation I think the number 1 selling pioint of this product, (aside from all of its great properties) is that there is almost NO WASTE when installing. Every scrap piece of DMX 1-Step™ that I had left over from cuts I was able to use in a differnt area. We had a few tricky angles from the overall design and yet all I needed to install this subfloor was an exacto knife. I installed 12mm laminate flooring on top of the DMX and we could not be happier with the look and feel of our new basement floor.
DMX 1-Step™ – Excellent Results! By: Jim
“This product was very easy to use and the results were excellent!
I started with a small room and after the flooring was laid down there was no sound what so ever when you walked on it. It gave you a cushioned feeling yet you could tell the strength was there to support anything.
I would recommend this product to anyone doing a flooring project.”

“This product was very easy to use and the results were excellent. I started with a small room and after the flooring was laid down there was no sound what so ever when you walked on it. It gave a cushioned feeling yet you could tell the strength was there to support anything.
I am a DYI’er and consider myself handy but feel even someone that does not do a lot of projects would be able to use this product.”
I completed approximately 3 months of research on Underlayments as I wanted to ensure that my floor were protected from moisture. I did my research online and came across DMX 1-Step™. I found the videos helpful and noticed an increase in the warmth of the floors before I even completed my project, when I only had the 1-Step™ down.
This is a product I recommend to any friends completing a flooring project.

Thank you for the opportunity to discuss 1-Step™ Underlayment manufactured by DMX. As I mentioned we built a home in the Haliburton’s over the past few summers. This was a first time project for us in building a home from the ground up. I’m not in the industry of building homes however so I relied on many resources, such as home builders, renovators and retailers such as the Home Depot and Home Hardware. The time came to finish the basement and we had to decide on what flooring would be installed. We decided on 11mm laminate which we purchased from the Home Depot. The sale associate also recommended the 1-Step™ product for the underlay. Several of my other resources suggested to lay down dry core, it was proven and tested. I did my research and actually called DMX directly to address my questions and concerns. DMX was very helpful and put any of my reservations at ease. We decided to install the 1-Step™ product and I’m so pleased with the result. The installation was very easy, the instructions were simple to follow. Paula keep in mind this was my first attempt at installing underlay and a laminate floor. It went very well. Using 11mm laminate eliminated the cost of additional underlay and the 1-Step™ was cost efficient. The finished floor has a cushion effect and is very warm to the touch.
I’m very pleased and would recommend the 1-Step™ system to anyone.
I watched all the videos you posted on YouTube and did approximately 6 months worth of research before proceeding with the product.
I have noticed a difference in the floors being warmer and am happy that this will continue through the winter.

Hi…We absolutely loved the DMX one step. We did indeed get the last roll that we needed to finish my in-law suite downstairs. My nephew who installs flooring, was doing the basement suite for me. We just purchased this house in May of last year. My son and his family live upstairs. When Kenn suggested laminate flooring, and we ripped out the old vinyl floors we discovered a lot of water. We found the source of the leak but Kenn suggested we look for something for damp basements as an underlay. At Home Depot we found your product. It was very easy to install and gives the laminate floor a moisture proof barrier which is important in our basement. I am allergic to mold and mildew. We were very happy with the product and have recommended it to a few of our friends.

DMX Plastics Limited,
We installed DMX 1-Step™ underlay over our concrete basement floor before installing laminate over it. It was fun & easy to work with. We’ve found that not only does it keep the floor dry it is also much warmer. We went with this combination mainly because of the ease of cleaning. So far so good, everything is as planned.

I installed two bamboo floors in two bathrooms using bamboo from Cali Bamboo and I used your DMX 1-Step™ product. I could not believe the quality and ease of use. I had looked at all outlets for an underlayment but was not impressed so I found your company online. I highly recommend this to anyone installing any wood or laminate flooring in any room. I have no worries that any moisture from below will be a problem.
It is nice to see a product that exceeds your expectations. I have recommended it to Cali Bamboo and told them to look into it as a product they could offer along with their flooring, it makes a great combination. I will be ordering more for the other rooms we are working on soon.
