I am using "floormuffler" as my underlayment. What type of type are you supposed to use to hold it together? Will duck tape work? :Thumbs:

Any kind of tape really. It's just used to keep is from flipping up when you install.
No need to use alot.

'floormuffler' is new to me too. Use the best tape that you can buy, it is part of the vapor barrier. If cheap tape disintegrates in 3-5 yrs., the seams will be open allowing water vapor access to the flooring. When using poly barrier, I also overlap about 6 ins. When using 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 the seams must be butted and your choice of tapes becomes more critical.

I wonder if some tapes tend to dry and crackle and make noise after awhile.
