Subflooring Secrets to a Quiet Floor

April 21, 2017

Luxury you can see is pretty, but luxury you can’t see is quality. While homeowners often spend hours selecting their flooring, few give much thought to the subflooring underneath—the place where squeaks and pops often start.

Current building codes are written to make sure floor systems can adequately resist the weight of a given design, they’re not specifically written to eliminate squeaks, bounce or uneven floors. While typical plywood and OSB may only satisfy the minimum standards for current building codes, high quality materials like AdvanTech® subflooring, are engineered to deliver performance that goes well beyond baseline code requirements. With strength, stiffness and fastener-holding power that all exceed code standards, AdvanTech subflooring creates quiet, stiff floors that can help reduce construction delays and the risk of callbacks.

Find out what to look for when selecting subflooring to keep homeowners happy and avoid squeaks, creaks and sagging floors.
