    I need to install 1/4" underlayment to bring aa new floor to exsisting ht. Does it need to be anchored as crazy as the old, which is stapled every inch or so. Should I use staples or nails?

    If you're installing vinyl or anything thats glued to it then it needs to be fastened according to the underlayment installation instructions. SnapStone is a floating floor so it still needs to be fastend solid enough that there isn't any movement, but not as much as a vinyl floor. I use staples just beacuse it's easy.
