Well, I never thought of the double-sided tape, and the underlayment is already cut and is in place now (but not yet fastened). Although double-sided tape is an interesting concept, I don't want to be the first to try it and it's not an approved installation method for the cork flooring I'm buying, which is glue-down only.
Frankly, double-sided tape sounds more like a temporary solution and not the higher quality job I'm looking for. Although I could see myself at some future time wanting to again remodel and put down yet another floor, it won't be anytime soon. This go-around has worn me out, so if I do change floors in the future, it'll be in a decade or two. Probably right before they move me into the nursing home!
