AdvanTech flooring and sheathing panels are high-performance structural panels specifically engineered to provide more water resistance and stability than plywood. AdvanTech panels carry a 50-year limited warranty not to require sanding due to moisture adsorption during installation. Intended for both residential and commercial floor, roof and wall applications, Advantech flooring panels are used for both single-layer and subfloor applications as well as roof-sheathing. AdvanTech sheathing panels are used for roof- and wall-sheathing as well as subflooring in two-layer systems. Circle
127In My Own Words
"With its 50-year warranty, I like using Advantech OSB for all of our decking. It goes on top of the floor joists, and is much more rigid and dense than some cheaper brands of OSB. More importantly, Advantech OSB resists water penetration as well as the swelling that is typical of some brands of OSB. When lesser brands get wet, they swell up and you get ridging at the joints. As a result, you actually have to sand down the decking before you put your finished flooring on it. We don't have that problem with Advantech. It does a great job for us, providing a rigid floor with less deflection."
